    I have had several professional interactions with Mr. Monks, and am familiar with his legal ability and ethical standards. His legal skills are very high, and he has always demonstrated great integrity. The keeness of his legal analysis separates him from other lawyers, as do his diligence and sense of fair play. I have the utmost regard for him as a lawyer and a person.
