Please accept this letter as my way of saying thank you for looking into my matter, especially Ms. Ashlee White. Your responses and opinions have been greatly valued. I hope that my material didn’t inconvenience you too much.

I understand how valuable your firm’s time is and I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate what you did for me. It’s unfortunate that we cannot proceed further against this group, however, I respect your conclusion and realize that it would be of great expense to your firm to continue where the conclusion may be uncertain at this time.

I encourage you to please continue to offer your preliminary service to others in a similar circumstance without cost. This kind of service is rare, but I know that it will be helpful to those in real need of justice with nowhere else to turn.

Again, thank you very much. I wish your firm all the best in the future.
