“Your lawyering has just been excellent…I think the results were exceptional; and by that, I mean, there were tremendous risks for the plaintiff…So you have nothing but the Court's praise and compliment. I think you're excellent counsel. You worked very hard. Your briefing was just extraordinary.”

- Hon. David O. Carter, United States District Court, Central District of California
