Dear Mr. Sweeney,

I’ve been intending to write for some time to thank you and your firm for all of your hard work and expertise in representing my husband, Carl, and myself, in the asbestos litigation.

We were fortunate to have been made aware of your firm and I am appreciative of the guidance and understanding you provided during this most difficult time.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you and your firm to anyone who is in need of legal counsel.
