Dear Paul,
Last Friday, after the trial, there was such a whirlwind of emotions and events that I didn’t get a chance to properly express my gratitude to you.  Now that we have had some time to breathe, I felt I needed to appropriately express to you my deepest and most heartfelt appreciation for what you have done for Raul.  I know you were very aware that for past 17 months this nightmare has taken an emotional toll on Raul, our entire family, and friends.  Paul, words do not seem enough to convey the feelings of gratitude that I feel for everything that you have done for us.
I was so proud during the trial of your professionalism and your ability to make sense of a senseless situation.  That Friday morning, as we were awaiting a verdict, both Raul and I agreed that no matter what the verdict, we felt that we had the best attorney that we could have and that you had done everything that you possibly could to show that jury the truth.
If we can ever do ANYTHING for you, PLEASE do not hesitate to let us know. I know you have an office here in town, but just know, OUR HOME IS YOURS.  We would be privileged to take you out for breakfast, lunch, dinner, whatever, when you are in town or just passing through. You have truly been a godsend to Raul, me, and our entire family.
On behalf of Raul, our families, and friends, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
Your friend always (hug!),
Patty DeLeon
