I can’t thank you enough for all you did to give me such a favorable outcome to my legal challenges. You are a miracle worker! You are appreciated by my family and friends and me (of course) for all you did.
….I do believe that God guided me through all the Attorney letters, emails and phone calls to meet you. I must admit that neither the implied consent decision or this last plea agreement came as a surprise, I thank you for that. From day one, you were open and honest about what could happen to me leaving a window of optimism open. I’ve also felt from day one a feeling of comfort knowing that the office of John Leunig cares about his clients far beyond the income they generate for you. …It’s hard to find honesty and sincerity nowadays from anyone, but I’ve found that with you, I appreciate that. I will be advertising your law office to all my friends or anyone I run across in the future. Yes, I’d like to be the CEO of the John Leunig Law Office Fan Club. lol.
