“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
As I put pen to paper I realize I have no words to do justice to the battle waged on my behalf by Rick and his dedicated team of justice fighters. I am simply not capable of putting into words the gratitude and respect I have for them as professionals, people and warriors.
Warriors must rise to the top to defend those incapable of defending themselves. Not all battles are fought on the battle field. Some are fought in the court of law before a judge and jury, fought with the sword of truth and the rule of law. As we all know there is good and evil in the world. Evil comes in all shapes, colors and sizes and often disguises itself as good. As long as we go forward with the truth and there are honorable warriors to fight on our behalf, as you and your team have proven to be, the truth will prevail no matter how powerful and deceptive the opponent may be.
The team of men and women led by Rick Friedman are dedicated to doing the right thing. Why? Because that’s what men and women of honor do.
As Rick and his team prosecuted the truth on our behalf, the financial resources afforded my wife and I by the jury’s verdict has allowed us to better focus on adapting and living with the struggles of long term care associated with my traumatic brain injury.
I want to thank Rick for taking the time to remove his attorney hat and speak to me as a friend about how to best move forward in rebuilding my life with a brain injury. Rick said “That if I only focus on what I can no longer do I would become a bitter and miserable human being. Instead figure out and focus on what you can still do and you will have the ability to live a fulfilling life.”
As I continue to figure out and focus on what I can do to contribute I feel it’s important to anyone with a brain injury to hear this as I truly believe I would not be here today had I not taken and implemented Rick’s advice.
Thank you again for all you and your team have done for my wife and I.
God bless you all,
