It has been a pleasure working with you and having you as representation. I want to re-state that my evaluation of your performance is most accurately described as "11 out of 10". I want to highlight the ways in which you have succeeded.
1. Your intentional empathy provided a humanizing understanding that at least "made space" for the consideration of validation. Not "validation by default", but at least a conscious consideration of the subjective realities expressed - that, to me, was "enough".
In a system that is defined by judgement (informed or uninformed), a reasoned mind becomes the only real truth each of us will ever know. I see now that a reasoned mind is much rarer than I previously believed; and more importantly, the platform for such a mind or voice to be heard is limited by design.
2. Your well-informed and considered opinions. You have demonstrated your ability to assess the reality of the situation and clearly communicate your perspective, opinion, and guidance on topics. I have taken, and continue to take, your opinions with added weight in my own decision making process.
3. Your intentional focus. You have demonstrated your ability to be focused on the conversation at hand - "present" to considerations and discussion. It's the difference between being "heard" and "understood".
4. Your responsiveness speaks for itself, and demonstrates a professionalism and respect for the critical nature of your work. I understand that it is a personally expensive effort to be responsive. Your commitment to succeed in this way is recognized as an intentional effort.
5. Your formulation of an effective plan given the dynamic state of reality. This is the job; naturally - but from my perspective, you do it exceedingly well.
All of these intentional efforts have provided a service that I appreciate and recognize as extra-ordinary.
A person doesn't know a "bad" attorney until they've had a "good" one; and you, as a person and through your work, have educated me to be able to contrast the two. On a whimsical and absurd note, rather than serious; I am deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to experience my destruction of identity with you, at least it was in good company.
