I spoke with my mom tonight, and the first words out of her mouth were, "Wow. He is such a mensch. He is so ethical." She was just blown away by the level of honesty and integrity that would spur you to look for, find and honor such a commitment. I have to be honest; I was less surprised. Over the past bunch of months I experienced it firsthand.
So many times during this negotiation you could have encouraged me to take a deal that would have been just fine for you. But you wouldn't do it. I felt so much that I could trust you. It was always with great sensitivity to our situation, to the needs of our family, to the rest of our lives. I hate to say it, but there aren't a whole lot of people like you around. You come with such authenticity, such honesty and such a strong ethical sense.
Obviously, you have been a fabulous lawyer. If not for the fact that you put together such an outstanding case on liability, if not for the fact that you were so incredibly thorough, we would never have gotten to this point. I walk away most impressed by the way you handled yourself throughout. May God continue to bless you with great success.
