After completing a hearing, a client said, 'If you have a happier client, I'd like to meet him.'

Keith Harrison

'Here's some more work.' Our clients keep us busy, and we're constantly moving on to the next transaction. Watching a client grow their business with us year over year is the best recognition of a job well done.

Complimenting my tenacity in a hard fought case, a DuPont lawyer called me his 'junkyard dog in a Laura Ashley dress.' While his fashion sense was outdated, his other sentiments made me feel good!

A client told me that I had explained an unusually difficult issue in simple and straightforward terms.

It came from the senior partner during the first case I ever tried to a jury. He said, 'I sleep easier at night knowing that you are sitting with me in the courtroom.'

After I closed a case, the opponent's client called me to ask if I would represent them in a new matter.
