Ben,

I would like to express a sincere thank you from myself and my three sons. We greatly appreciate the hard work and dedication you and your staff put into Ray’s mesothelioma lawsuit.

I will never forget how excited he was when you called and wished him a happy birthday the day he turned 56.

Ray’s biggest concern was that I would be taken care of financially, and because of you, you made that happen. Thank you so much!

Dear Mr. Shein,

Just a short note to again thank you for all you have done and are doing. I think of you so often and am thankful for all your wisdom and advice. As time goes on and with the loss, I realize what not only the personal loss and financial changes my life has, but also would have been without your kindness, concern, help and encouragement to take this step.

Thank you so much for all you have done for us; your brilliance, expertise, and tireless work on our behalf. I never expected the results that you obtained. Your kindness, thoughtfulness, and concern are so very appreciated and all the things that were in your job description and for the many kindnesses that were not.

You have been a true friend as well as a miracle worker.

Fondly,

Just a little note to say “Thank You.” We all realize that you are only doing your job, however, we feel you do it very well. Thanks for coming to the house and making all the arrangements so convenient for us. We’re gonna miss you!! You are a truly gifted attorney and, regardless of the outcome, the confidence you instilled in my father was wonderful. We all feel privileged and fortunate to have you represent our concerns. Dad means the world to all of us and he is overjoyed and feels so protected with having you for his counsel.

Wishing you all the best.

I feel I have been remiss in thanking you for all your efforts on my behalf in the asbestos lawsuit. It has been quite overwhelming, every time I think the checks will stop, more come along.

Having a hard time knowing what to do with all this money (I am afraid of the stock market) it does help me to live more comfortably. It’s a problem, but a pleasant one.

Thank you, very much for all your help.

Sincerely,
Jane W.

Ben-

We could not have received better advice from our friends when we were told to look into hiring you as

Just a note to express my gratitude for the fine way you handled my problem. The money I received over the years allowed me to travel back and forth to see my daughter who has lived out here since the Viet Nam War. She was a nurse in the Air Force.

Respectfully,

Joe
