"I wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help and advice over the past few years.
I have no doubt that the desired outcome was a result of your professional maneuvering and insight into how these things work.
I am grateful to you for putting up with my many annonying questions and regular emails. It is clearly a stressful procedure for a doctor to go through these kind of proceedings and had it not been for your experience I may well have gone crazy.
I will of course be highly recommending you to my colleagues who find themselves with a sticky wicket and will continue to sing your praise whilst I recount this ghastly ordeal with those that were aware.
I am in debt to your cunning."

"Thank you for everything you have done for me. Not only have you represented me with great skill but more importantly you have shown yourself to be a kind and extremely empathic person. With the greatest respect I hope never to use your services again but if ever anyone needs help in the same regard I will most certainly recommend your services."

"Please pass on my thanks to the entire team for their hard work and my congratulations on achieving such an acceptable settlement and overall outcome.
I sincerely hope we do not meet again but if I found myself in need of legal advice, I would be delighted to have your representation."
