I’m still in shock

Hello Donna and Patrick,

I’m still in shock about the outcome, but wanted to send you both a sincere thank you on everything you’ve done for us! I can’t tell you what it’s meant, and hearing the judge’s words today was so vindicating. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us. We are all still so amazed at your skill and care with my case. I can’t tell you what a relief this is. Wow. Thank you for everything.
