I want to thank you for waiving the balance of your fee in the P/R matter. I am sure that both parties appreciate your efforts to resolve the issue which you performed well and reached the only reasonable result. Since my client’s financial situation provides for basic living expenses, he is not able to pay me my normal fee, which I have greatly discounted. Too often bills for Best Interest attorneys are in excess of what I expect. So it is uplifting to find an attorney who assists the court and the litigants as you have. We too often criticize participants in the legal process especially where fees are concerned, so you should be applauded for the work/you performed. Thank you.
