The following are excerpts from letters I have received from clients and client’s families over the years. It is very gratifying to hear back from clients and I hope you will take away a sense of what I offer from these messages. My mantra has always been “responsive, effective, committed criminal defense” and I hope these thank you notes reflect my success in delivering on that promise.
Thank you for all your help. It is a comfort to know that we have had someone reliable to help Jon in this whole matter. I hope that we have no other dealings with you on a professional level but am glad to know you were there for Jon.
Sue S. on behalf of her son

Thanks so much for all the time and hard work you put into my case! I am very grateful and am very happy about the way things turned out and I enjoyed meeting you.
We’re very pleased with the work you’re doing.
Irma S. on behalf of her daughter
Thanks for helping my son, Robert * * *, with his legal issues. He said you are excellent!
Lynn L. on behalf of her son
Thank you again! I am so pleased with the outcome and know that you are directly responsible. I am forever grateful and glad to know you.
Thanks very much Virginia!
Thanks so much for making that go away so quickly. I appreciate you for repeatedly saving my hide. Keep up the good work.
Remember, I will not forget about you. You did me a huge service! For both Danny and I.
It feels great to be putting this behind me now. You did a wonderful job and I can’t thank you enough for the ‘hourly rate’ fee.
I just want to thank you again for your hard work in having my case dismissed. * * * Mark and I both appreciate all that you did to help us, and we are doing well.
Thank you again for all your help and for believing in me. You are an angel flying too close to the ground.
Thanks again for the help you gave me in court. I feel real fortunate to have you as a lawyer and I will surely refer you to anyone I know that may need a lawyer in the future.
I and the rest of our family thank you for your representation of Erica.
Noel W. on behalf of his daughter
It’s been close to a year since we last spoke and I just wanted to touch base with you. My mom * * * is doing great and going on 15 months of sobriety! She has never felt better and looks better everyday. Life is good! My mom has changed her life around completely. Besides her daily meetings, she is also mentoring young girls and women at risk for addiction. I am so proud of her, we all are. I wanted to thank you again for your time and effort in my mom’s case. It must be very rewarding for you to see clients turn their lives around. I wish Judge Crain could see her now!
DarciRae O. on behalf of her mother
I also want to tell you that I appreciate all that you’ve done and all that you are doing for me. That means the world to me. You are the best attorney that I’ve ever met.
Thank you for all you did for Mark. You are such a blessing to us. God be with you and yours.
Angela and Patsy on behalf of their brother and son
We just wanted to thank you for all the hard work you put into defending Mark. I know he was deeply touched that you fought so hard for him. * * * Thank you for putting your heart into representing our Uncle Mark.
Tammie S. and her children on behalf of her brother
I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for everything. You’re the first person to treat me like a human since all of this has happened. Thank you for your trust and respect.
I want to say how much I appreciate all you have done for me even when I was shody [sic] with you. You are a good loyer [sic] and I am a bad client. Once again, thanks for putting up with me and take care.
Thanks to your hard work and dedication, I have been given the chance to make something of myself and start a positive life for myself as well. I feel privileged to have not only a lawyer who does good at her job but one who was able to give me a valuable piece of wisdom. I will not forget when you told me that it doesn’t matter which college I go to, I won’t be able to get a good job with a felony conviction. * * * I don’t plan on getting myself into any more trouble.
Thank you for everything.
I just wanted to say thank you again for your help on March 28th. I really appreciate your kindness. I realize it’s your job, but you did make the situation a little easier to deal with. Thank you again.
I want to say thank you again for everything that you have already done for me. I think you’re the best public defender ever.
[I] want to say again how much we really appreciate all you have done. Having you on our side was a blessing. I wish you continued success. The world needs more caring people like you in it.
I’m jus’ writing you this quick note to tell you and your colleague that I am blessed to have you as my attorneys. You all did a wonderful job. I must admit I had a wonderful time and a few good laughs during the trial. You all ate the prosecution’s witnesses for lunch and dessert. Even though it was a misdemeanor trial, I have never seen anyone work for anyone like you all did. Thanks a bunch! A whole bunch. I am very pleased.
Thanks again for all you do. You truly are a rarity not only in your profession but in life as well. People who contribute to society like you make life better for everyone. That’s my hope. Keep doing what you do. You’re the best V.G.
