As the year and the decade have come to an end, I felt compelled not only to wish you all a Happy New Year, but also to offer our clients sincere thanks for allowing us the privilege of representing them and their families, and for the successes we have enjoyed in doing so.
We don’t measure our success by financial bottom lines. We do what we do to help military members and their families during very difficult times. Therefore, we define success by how well we were able to help our clients and their families and by outcomes that positively resolved the case against them and set them up for future successes.
As we look back on the decade, it is marked by positive outcomes and grateful clients. That is extremely gratifying for us. Some of those successes are documented in our blog, which only began in November 2006. Here are some links to the outcomes of some recent cases:

It’s now on to 2010 and the new decade. I wish nothing but good fortune to you all. To those service men and women out there, we are forever indebted to you for your sacrifices and service on our behalf. Thank you again.
