This is just a quick note to say Thank You for [your] help in achieving my divorce. Your kindness is something that I can never repay but rest assured that you are remembered in my prayers. Naturally, should I ever again have the opportunity to refer a client to you I will do so without hesitation. I wish you much continued success in your practice.


Tammy, I just wanted to thank you again. It is an honor and privilege to have you represent me.


I cannot thank you enough. I am feeling less desperate and more hopeful. Thank you so much.

Angels come in all shapes and sizes. You have earned your wings. We love you.


Tammy – Just wanted you to know how I feel about having you represent me in this horrible situation. It is easy to complain when things aren’t good, well, I believe it should be equally easy to say when someone has done good. Great job Tammy! When I was told you were ready and prepared for court, I did not realize at the time how true that was! You really were in perfect tune to what was going on around you in ALL aspects, everything from knowing what to say, when to say it, and directing me. Well just impressive! In closing, I say you did a great job and THANK YOU for representing me!
