“I’m sure you heard the news. Wow, what an experience! I was totally overwhelmed with the process, emotionally bankrupt. At the end of the day, I think I was in total shock. I wondered around in an emotional daze for hours. The good news, I woke up to a Brand New Day. I haven’t seen this kind of day in years. Just thought I would share that with you.

I also want to thank you for all your hard work. I know Michael could not have done what he did without you. You have been so valuable through this whole process. It is people like you that make people like me believe. Your work is impressive but, what I feel you represent as a human being is most impressive. I felt you holding my hand, and I am grateful to you for that. You are amazing. You were at the pulse of the case at all times. Not once did I feel that I needed to talk to Michael for clarification (a first for me, especially, in the legal world). You have been so helpful, and kind, and so supportive, and…

Thank you Nichole, for all you have done on my behalf. There are not enough words (at least in my vocabulary) to express my gratitude.”
