"I am writing to commend the exceptional work performed by attorney Kevin Cornish. Kevin's professional, supportive and knowledgeable conduct were the exact qualities I needed for a successful resolution to my case. These qualities are the ones clients look for in a competent and effective attorney. What sets Kevin apart, though, is the way he is able to explain and highlight the necessary procedures and possible outcomes in a way that keeps a client informed but not intimidated. Kevin's evaluation of how the case could play out was instrumental in keeping my expectations reasonable, and I knew I could rely on his good judgement, throughout. I want to also highlight the work of Kevin's assistant, Ms. Mariel Drevyanko. I sincerely appreciate how her demeanor communicates professionalism yet warmth, which when executed together make people feel protected, especially through the delicate process of handling both your personal information and documents. Being in the health care profession as a registered nurse, I am very familiar with evaluations that are sent to patients/clients to later be used as a form of advertisement, and quite frequently, it is those with complaints who write them. That perspective is sometimes warranted, but to me, what's done less frequently is the act of informing people of a job that is WELL done. Kevin and his associates really need no such accolades to continue to excel, but endorsement is always a great way to share with others your appreciation. Mine was not a high profile case but it's the type of business that confirms to the public High Swartz's commitment to excellence. I am grateful that I can count on Kevin Cornish and his colleagues at High Swartz for any future legal matters. Thank you!"
