Posted by Hai | February 12, 2014
Thanks very much again Mr. Wilke
I got help from Mr. Wilke when he was the head of a public defense office in 2003-2005. Although I didn't pay a dime through my pocket because I couldn't afford it, he helped me with the utmost care, best effort and great ethic that anyone can get from a lawyer, paid for or not. I always think I owe him a lot in this life and feel thankful and lucky that somehow chance did happen the way it was; that he took my case and helped me out of a really deep trouble that could be the worst for anybody. That trouble was a really painful experience of my life and I've paid dearly initially and still been living with its consequence so I don't want to talk about it ever again but without him, it could have been ten times worse for me. I'm sure that he's probably one of the best out there that you can possibly find. Thanks very much again Mr. Wilke. I know that I owe you a lot and can't never repay your great service, but I and my family always hope and pray for your good health and will never forget you. And to people who are searching, I can assure you base on my own experience that when you find Mr. Wilke, you find your best chance.
