Thank you for asking. I would be honored to have my testimonial posted on your blog. Not only does Lauro deserve my gratitude, but so does Steve Palazzo as well as your entire firm. Thank you again.

Mr. “Smith”,

I’m the Chief of Staff of Goyette & Associates and Lauro forwarded me the email you sent to him. I don’t know if you’ve spent any time on our blog , but I often post favorable letters regarding our attorneys work and their testimonials from our clients. I was hoping that with a few minor adjustments (like omitting names and specifics) you would allow me to post your email to Lauro along with a brief description regarding Lauro’s success with your reversal of Termination.

 On a personal note, I’m sorry to hear that your workplace has become unbearable and that you will leaving law enforcement. We appreciate what you do every day and I wish you all the best in whatever your new endeavors entail.

Regards and Gratitude,

Jennifer  D. Coalson-Perez

Subject: Update


Just checking in with you with an update. I’ve made the decision that I will be quitting my employment with probation. There are several reasons why, and I fealt it was only fair to let you know why. I can not work for a department that is constantly trying to find something wrong with anything. I am too scared to go to work and constantly watch my back when doing my job correctly. This is a stress that I no longer want to deal with, and don’t want to end up having a heart attack or other medical issues before I retire. I have done it for six years. Also, I believe no one can honestly say that they will give me a position that is better than all swing shifts; and I have 50% custody of my son and I am not willing to give that up.  With all that said I have lost my passion in law enforcement because of that department. I appreciate everything your firm and the union has done to support my case. I can not put into words how grateful I am. 

Thursday is supposed to be my return date therefor, on Wednesday, I will be submitting my letter of resignation to _______ effective immediately. Again, thank you very much for your hard work.
