 Dear Kevin:   

Thanks for your outstanding work in Matt's defense.The interrogators, investigators and prosecution were all extremely zealous and not above obvious slander, half-truths, and even judging motives. The prosecution reminded me of a member of a hungry pack of sharks in the water after they smell blood. Sad to say, but they were after the maximum of 20 years for Matt (and they would have preferred Life).  Without your help, that is what would have happened. Somehow, I wasn't surprised at their viciousness.  Please thank Joel for introducing you to us.

Bless you!
J of Reno 



When I came by your office to pick up the settlement check, I didn't get the chance to personally thank you.  I'm so grateful to you for using your "attorney muscles" with American Family and securing a great settlement for my injury.  I see positive results from the physical therapy and I'm looking forward to further healing.

I just wanted you to know that I appreciate your efforts on my behalf.  It was a pleasure to meet you and should I have need of an excellent attorney in the future, I know exactly whom to call.  ;-)

Blessings to you,

~Marcia - RENO, NV
