I received the "Update" you were kind enough to send me outlining some of your cases. I must say you look quite impressive in the accompanying photo. Of course, I have been tracking your progress in the jury verdict reports which your name appears regularly.
I am sure you know that J.M. died. I recall very well that J. believed you had the potential to be one of the best trial lawyers who ever passed through our firm. He was shown to be correct in that belief.
It is always good to hear from one of our considerate alumni.
When I see your name I think fondly of my old block-4th St. Between 7th and 8th Avenues-where I grew up.
Thank you very much for your letter.
The one regret I have in leaving the trial Bench is not being able to preside over cases with attorneys as capable as you.
