"You and your colleagues...guided their family members through a legal maze"

Dear Mr. _______,

You and your colleagues...not only represented the protestors, but you guided their family members through a legal maze...I have notes of several phone calls you made to me over the course of that affair, and one other memory in particular: encountering a cluster of concerned and bewildered parents in the courthouse hallway, you made a short, spontaneous speech, assuring us that not only had we no cause to be ashamed or embarrassed, but that our children had performed the kind of noble acts that a decent society depended on.  This made an impact.  It was a decent, sensitive thing to do, and it made an impression.

"If it were not for ____...I would never have been afforded the chances I have recently been able to capitalize on."

Hey ____,

I would like to thank you very much for all your assistance in the past!  I was charged a long while ago with possession of drugs and, with the support of my family and legal representative, was granted the ability to pursue my passion in academics and have now achieved a BA with Honours.  If it were not for ____ and my family I would never have been afforded the chances I have recently been able to capitalize on.  I have maintained a Dean's List standing for three consecutive years while I fast-tracked through my four year BA and am currently applying to graduate schools all across Canada!  With regard to the legal aspects and conditions of my situation in the past, there is no way I would have been able to pursue university level academics inside a prison; therefore, I am forever in great debt to _______ for all his help, and his answering each and every question I had throughout the court proceedings.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration ____!


"I was able to have a full night's sleep before the day of the trial."

Hello ____:

Thank you for your successful work on my behalf. I can now put that experience behind me.

I especially wanted to thank you for your advice to me when I first engaged your services: "Don't worry about your situation. That is what you hired me to do."

I took that advice to heart and was able to continue with my life as the slow wheels of justice turned. It provided me with a sense of comfort as the time passed, up to the point where I was able to have a full night's sleep before the day of the trial.

I will definitely be referring you to anyone else who is in a similar situation, although I do not plan on requiring your services myself in the future!

Thank you again.

"My gratitude for your kindness and wisdom...resonates with me daily. "

Mr. ___,

My gratitude for your kindness and wisdom almost two years ago now resonates with me daily.

I feel somewhat ashamed and embarrassed that I haven’t written to you sooner to express such feelings and share with you the joy I get from the relationship I have with my daughter and her family now—a relationship that could have ended broken and irreparable if you hadn’t been there to guide us through the fear, doubt, and despair at that moment in our lives.

Sir, if you’re ever having ‘one of those days’, please know you do make a difference and that someone out there really does appreciate your talent and ability for parting the oceans and moving mountains.

You are hope on this earth and, for that, I will always be thankful and grateful.

Mr. C.

"Thanks so much for your hard work!"

Mr. ___,

Thanks so much for your hard work!  I didn't think it would be possible to do what you did for me.
