Dear Mr. Speaks,

Just a note to give you my heartfelt gratitude for the marvelous defense you did for my daughter.  Knowing it was an uphill battle, you gave her the caring, dedicated, and professional service that was required to prevent her from losing her freedom.  For this, we will be eternally grateful.  She was grateful, impressed and relieved to have this chapter of her life behind her, all thanks to you.  Wishing you the best, VK.
