    Thank you so much for your service. My meeting with you was professional and pleasant. I also enjoyed working with A. D. He’s a great lawyer, very knowledgeable and on the ball. He was empathetic with my situation. In court he was on the ball and even caught a few things the judge missed. I was very happy with him. Thank you so much.
