    Chase...thank you for your professional assistance in the resolution of the recent lawsuit against me. I could not have obtained such a favorable outcome without your assistance even though I am a lawyer myself and have handled similar matters during my over 40 year legal career.

    You have saved me tens of thousands of dollars over what I could have obtained had I tried to handle the matter myself. With hundreds of thousands of dollars at stake you were worth every penny of your most reasonable fee. Beyond that was the peace of mind for both me and my wife during the process, and you can’t put a price tag on that. Your knowledge and expertise were much appreciated.
