Claims Examiner with a Major Client

It is our belief that your last summary brief probably helped the judge understand the sequence of events much better and landed you that whopping sum you were awarded. [...] Anyway, thank you and we appreciate your efforts. The first and only glimmer of a bright spot since [we were sued].
