You just sailed to the top of my list of attorneys whom I feel are true professionals in your profession worthy of holding in high regard. What I should have commented on in my first email after the hearing is how you go about fighting for somebody else. You are an amazing advocate. Leaving your office yesterday morning you said, “Let’s go to work.” And oh boy did you do your job, far exceeding expectations. In fact, watching you work was for me an artful lesson in how to do that job. I am in awe! I was in the company of a consummate professional yesterday and I want you to know that.

I wanted to say that I am sorry that your clients are not here to hear this, Mr. Leroy. All the other lawyers on both sides of this case I knew previously from prior associations and they are first-rate lawyers and I won’t say anything further in that regard because it would simply be carrying coals to Newcastle as to the high respect I have for their abilities. This is the first case you have been before me, and I have been very impressed, very impressed indeed, with not only your skill but your professionalism. I am delighted to see this further proof of it in the subject that was just mentioned.

Thank you for taking the time to hand write a letter to me. That means more to me than you will ever know. It was like a good firm handshake and confident eye contact. That says a lot about a man’s character.

Thank you for meeting with my friend… your wisdom, generosity of time and sense of justice remind me that before we had lawyers, we had priests.

Dave Leroy is the ultimate professional. He is very well respected among his peers. I haveworked alongside Dave and witnessed how hard he works and how tirelessly he advocates for his clients. In fact, on a case he just resolved for a mutual client, he accomplished the impossible. Dave was able to get a district court jduge to order an exception to a previous judge’s order. The exception saved the clients career and dramatically improved his life. Dave is amazing. I recommend Dave to everybody. He’s the best.
