Thank you very much for your excellent job in representing me in court for my case. Thank you especially for keeping me out of jail as that was the primary reason for hiring you. My friends have commented. “You got off easy” and I reply, “I give credit to my attorney John Leunig, I found him in the St. Paul Yellow Pages under Attorneys.” Thank you again.
