I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate your support and friendship through one of the toughest ordeals in my life. There is not a moment that goes by in the last week that I don’t think about how great you did at the jury trial… I will recommend your great service to everyone I come in contact with that may need you! My kids thank you too.
I would like to thank you for everything you did for [my son]. I could never find a way to show you how much you did for him. I will always feel like I am in your debt. You made it so [my son] can have a normal life. Thank you.
It takes a good lawyer and supportive family – and even the worst situation can have a positive result! His life would have been very different had he not had you for his lawyer, I doubt that he would have accomplished many of the milestones he made since that time…
I just wanted to thank you for your help with my recent case. It was nice to have someone on my side. Thank you for helping me get a favorable outcome in my case.

Thank you for all your efforts over the past few months. Your expertise and the way you treated me and the case was much appreciated! I can now move forward after the mistakes I have made. Best wishes to you and your practice.
Thanks Mr. John Leunig for representing me! I wanted to scream very loudly at the court house but I could not because I was afraid that I may talk in my African language. It felt SUPER DUPER GOOD!!!! but also felt like I was in a very good dream that I did not want to wake up from. The sentence has not sunk in yet. What? Are you serious! That’s it! You are the best Lawyer not only in the continental USA but in all the five continents in the world and I am thankful for choosing you out of the load of names I had. I cannot find better vocabulary in any language to describe what you do and how great you are at it!…But I say Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I just wanted to let you know how much [my son] and I appreciated your professionalism and help with is court case. You were great to work with and are very good at what you do.
