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.
…. I really needed to thank you for all you did for us. You knew what needed to be done and were always available and helpful with our questions. I wouldn’t hesitate at all to call you again or refer you to a friend. I know we owe it to you to have our son home and not in prison, for him to have the opportunity for a life free of a scarlet letter.
….I am very pleased with how things turned out. Having never had to navigate the legal system before I knew I could count on you to handle it properly. Your breadth of experience, superior communication and knowing that I was your #1 priority when we talked was very reassuring. I would be delighted to recommend your services to future clients.
We just wanted to thank you once again, we couldn’t be more happy about the outcome of today. You went above and beyond the duties of a friend and we are very appreciative for it! You are a true example that there are good people in this world, and we thank you for it!
