Dear Mr. Roderman:

As I look back at 2009 and the things for which I am grateful, YOU stand out at the top of the list. You took the monkey off of my son’s back and mine as well. As you know, we bring our children into this life and we try to teach them right from wrong and we try to give them the guidance so they can reach their goals and establish a good life.

Unfortunately, things do not always turn out the way we plan. Very often there are some twists and turns that we do not expect nor can we predict. As I told you in our first telephone conversation, if my son didn’t have bad luck, he wouldn’t have any luck. But is looks like his/our luck changed when we met you!

Lord knows, I wish we had met you when the whole ordeal began. The first time we went down for a hearing, in 2004, and I had contacted the first lawyer who was recommended by a friend of a friend. I had no idea what lawyer to speak to so I paid him to look into the case and be at the court when we went to FL. As you know, he did not show up and dropped the case when it got a little complicated even though I assured him that he would get paid if it went further.

When he dropped the case, I was distraught and a bundle of nerves, how could my child be going to jail? I spoke to another lawyer and as you know, the nightmare continued until July 30, 2009.

I can’t thank you enough for helping my son get a second chance. It is still difficult because he has not been able to find employment, but we are working through things as best we can.

It is with joy in my heart that I write this letter and wish you a wonderful holiday season. May the New Year grant you the ability to continue helping others and bringing relief and happiness to them as well. God bless you and yours and from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU so very much!
