In any case, we filed the claim with court, proceeded through several depositions, two mediations, and finally, just two weeks before trial, received a settlement offer. We negotiated back and forth, and finally settled the case for a reasonable sum. Shortly after things were wrapped up, I received a bottle of wine and a card written as follows:
Just a small token of my appreciation for all the care and hard work you put into my case. Your honesty and integrity was greatly appreciated. You made me feel as important as any "big money" client. As my son & granddaughter say..."You rock." :o) I will always remember you and your family when I talk to the Lord. God Bless."
Needless to say, I was tickled pink. I've had many happy clients over the years, and have received several cards to boot. Indeed, one very sweet elderly client sent me no less than six Harry & David gift boxes! However, this card is one of my favorites.
