Your proficiency, knowledge, along with the research of the massapequa waters, boating safety proved the recklessness of the driver; who didn’t protect us from danger.
Peter, during the deposition your questions/extrapolating the facts of defendant of prior accidents , lawsuits and what occurred the night of the boating accident were remarkable.
You took such a personal approach, understanding our situation with care and warmth for due diligence.
Our future was in your hands since our friend was reckless in ours.
Ben, we knew you were informed and interested in the case with a personal “touch"…that “touched" our hearts by taking on our case
You “wanted” this for us
When we were at the final hours of settling our case at the negotiating table
Each amount offered… you rejected
“we could do better”
You provided the negotiator with cases you researched that awarded larger sums.
To “sum” it up…
We put our trust into you and peter to secure our future without worries of the what ifs…
And for that…we are forever grateful
