Tamara (Tammy) Gordon
I would like to extend to you my deepest appreciation for the outstanding work you did in the handling of my accident case. This letter is more than overdue because you did such an excellent job—you deserve the most prompt response.
Over the six years that the defence dragged out, your tenacity, determination and persistence did not yield any ground to the opposition. I appreciate the dedication you demonstrated to your job and the calm with which you dealt with the situation even when it was difficult for us to function well under fire. During the course of the negotiation we discovered that you have a very able and professional team of support staff. I would like to say thanks to all of them; especially Marie who fielded many of the questions that we had, and dealt with most of the calls when you were absent from the office or otherwise engaged. Please extend our compliments to her for hard work and her corporate attitude.
I can recall many times when my mom and I felt down due to the attacks and adversarial approach the defence attorney took, but you encouraged us not to lose hope. More than that—you went into your own pocket and assisted us financially a number of times when we did not know where to turn. We especially appreciate your efforts, because in the course of the trial my mom went through four majors surgeries and I had to deal with many physical challenges. I know it is not easy to deal with clients who are healthy and therefore far more difficult to deal with clients who are injured or sick.
Considering that the defence denied liability for the accident, I consider it a great victory that you were able to secure a home of this magnitude for me as a part of the settlement. It is more in keeping with the house I lived in before my accident, and it is a relief from a cramped two-bedroom apartment that I occupied during the case. It gives me lots of room and freedom to move around.
I just want to say thanks again for all that you have done. My family and friends appreciate all that you have done to help me and they are well acquainted with your excellent work and my praises of you. It will be my pleasure to recommend you to anyone who might need legal assistance in your area of expertise. Should it become necessary I will take you up on the offer you made to assist me in any way you can in my future endeavours. I wish you continued success and I trust you will continue win big awards and put many smiles on the faces of all your clients.
As a result of sticking with Mr. Kwinter for 7 long years, I am a proud owner of an accessible home, a new accessible vehicle to take me around, independence in many ways, to complete university with a degree, and land a great job.
