  •  Refreshing
      “I have been a criminal defense attorney for almost 30 years and my husband is a prosecutor.  I write to you for your recent victory in the Caldwell case!  It was refreshing to read in the paper what you said about it being God’s will and that you were merely the vessel.  So many in our field are so “full of themselves” after a Not Guilty verdict.  Remember though, God chose the vessel!” 
  • Your passion and advocacy were clear and prevalent throughout your arguments.
    “I am newly received member of the Minnesota State Bar.  I was present in the courtroom for much of the Caldwell trial and wanted to compliment you on your closing argument.  Your argument was the first time that I felt genuinely moved while observing an attorney in the courtroom.  Your passion and advocacy were clear and prevalent throughout your arguments.  You were thoroughly engaging, and I was very impressed.  Had I not already gone to law school, I would have wanted to after observing your closing.  Thank you for reassuring me that I went into the correct profession and keep up the good work”
  • You amazed and razzle dazzled
    I watched the closing arguments yesterday in your Assault 2nd trial with 28 plea forms, 14 counts. I thought you had a terrible case and there was no way you could win just watching the state’s closing. And, then I listened to one of the best closing arguments I’ve ever heard in my whole career when I watched you perform. You amazed and razzle dazzled and I was not entirely surprised to hear that he was acquitted on all charges. That was an amazing job and you are an amazing attorney. I need to hire you if I ever get charged with a crime.”
  • Thank you brother
    “I just want to say thank you very much for your hard work and dedication in my legal case.  I just overheard and it’s funny how some of the East African communities are comparing you to Johnnie Cochran!!!  Thank you brother….
  • Thank you for all your hard work in helping people who don’t have a voice
    “Thank you for all your hard work in helping people who don’t have a voice.  You are a wonderful person.  May God always have you under his protection.  May you always be a blessing to others.  Keep up the good work”  
  • My life is transforming into a real thing of beauty
    “I pray the Lord continues to bless your every step and holds you in His grip.  My life is transforming into a real thing of beauty through His grace and mercy.  You are a major reason as well so thank you.  Because of your help I was able to spend Christmas with both of my daughters for the first time in more years than I can remember.  I was able to share Thanksgiving and Christmas with them sober and free.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that.  The Lord has given me another chance to be a father, son, brother and friend to those I love and who love me.  I believe that you were one of the key people He worked through to give me this chance.  So, thank you”
  • Thank you again for your Christian approach to this case
    Thank you for representing my son.  The outcome was amazing and absolutely a miracle-thank you for making it happen for a fee that was definitely below what would normally be charged.  I hope he can make it, but I have more confidence now than ever before.  Thank you again for your Christian approach to this case.”

  • I appreciate all the work you've done for me.
    "I just want to take time to tell you how much I thank you and appreciate all the work you have done for me.  It has been a very stressful situation.  More importantly, I’m 100% innocent so it’s been very stressful at moments.  But, through all of this I kept faith in you and never doubted you.  I always cheered for you and respected your work .  I’ve had your back and support from day one, not a day less and will continue to.  I continue to pray for you and your family and speak highly of you."
  • Your caring and loving spirit will never be unnoticed or forgotten.
    “Words can’t totally express the gratitude that my family and myself are experiencing for the release of my son.  He is so happy and excited that he ran to the door and continuously jumped for being outside.  I’m truly grateful and I know it was the unwarranted power of our God and I owe it all to Him and working through you.  Your caring and loving spirit will never be unnoticed or forgotten.  May God continue to bless you and your business!  Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord (Jeremiah 17:7)”
