Thank you for this thorough report on the proceedings and above all for the excellent work you did for me. My wife I know would also like to express her thanks to you on a really superb defence and also for your understanding of the alcoholic problem and for your promoting the AA solution to the Magistrates. I felt they were more than fair in their judgement and sentencing and yes I agree it could have been a great deal worse for me had you not been there to so eloquently plead mitigation on my behalf. Needless to say, I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who might find himself in a situation similar to myself in the future and I can only say thank you for everything you did for me and for keeping me calm through the entire process. Once again thank you for your expert guidance and help and I hope our paths may cross again in happier circumstances.
