John, your diligence in this matter is outstanding and I believe your approach is second to none. I hope we achieve a positive outcome however; I do believe you have exhausted all you can through this chain and I guess only time will tell. Thank you for your professionalism, your passion and determination.

My huge thanks in your work on my case. All in all I don't think a better result could have been achieved given the seriousness of the charges. You have been fair, tough and diligent in equal measure. I am blessed to have been directed to such a good lawyer. I have no intention of ever needing one again for a criminal matter - but I will definitely refer others if appropriate.
