Client Testimonials

Below are some excerpts from cards and letters we have received from our clients over the years:

I just want to say thank you for your skill and dedication in representing me. You guys are the best in the business, and I will always be grateful for your compassion and friendship.

-Wife who lost her husband in the South Tower of the World Trade Center

Your compassion and dedication have concluded with success but beyond these triumphs are my admiration and gratitude for all you have done and most of all a friendship I shall always cherish.

-Wife of victim on board an international flight

I so appreciate everything you have done for us throughout this lawsuit. [We] both knew we could always call on you for anything. That was such a comfort when facing an unknown process. It is a gift to be able to make people feel supported and cared about in the midst of an experience that is anything but that. Thank you for that.

-Mother of a child on board a commuter flight

Although the process we’ve been through isn’t one anyone would hope for, I can’t express strongly enough what a blessing it has been to have your firm driving this for our family. To be able to trust you completely and know that at every turn you were working in the best interest of our family allowed me to concentrate on other priorities for my children and myself. Your care, compassion and professionalism will always be appreciated by our family.

-Wife of victim on board one of the September 11, 2001 hijacked aircraft

You have worked so hard and with love and compassion and you never made us feel like clients. You always made us feel like family and family we are always.

-Wife of victim on board an international flight

You may never understand how much you helped me grieve and heal by giving me the freedom and the time that I needed to do so. You asked very little of me yet gave me and my girls so much in return. Thank you for making a difference in our lives.

-Wife who lost her husband in the North Tower of the World Trade Center

The passing of my parents sent me into survival mode. Minute by minute; hour by hour. What an accomplishment just to make it through the day. You taught me, through your care and support, how to live. Patiently, you listened and silently you hoped.

-Daughter who lost both parents on board an international flight

We want to thank you for all you have done for our family. Listened, talked, cried with us over these last twenty years . . .We could not have accomplished this feat without you.

-Wife of victim on board an international flight

When I first retained Mitch, he said he wanted to come to my house to feel my husband’s presence and to meet my children in order to get a sense of the loss in their lives. He actually sat in my children’s room and talked with them about their father. That was very special.

-Wife of victim on board an international flight

Your unfailing dedication in all you have done for me and my family over these past years along with your sense of compassion have given us such a “cared for” feeling during the trying times we have endured.

-Wife of victim on board an international flight

Thank you for all you do - we know your blood, sweat and tears is so much more than a professional effort on our account. We know the effort is straight from the heart.
