We pride ourselves on the fact that our clients become like family to us. Often they write to express their thanks and appreciation for our efforts. We have been given permission to share some of their thoughts.
To Brad and Alisa,
I simply wanted you to know that your representation of my mother gave our family the hope, promise and means to move on. While life will never be the same for mother, the verdict and award, in addition to your counsel, compassion and ongoing support, has enabled our family to move forward. God bless.
As a lifelong friend of Rhonda, I feel compelled to offer my thanks and admiration for your professionalism and spectacular courtroom presentation. You allowed my dear friend to regain some peace and dignity while providing for her family in the future. There really are no proper words to express my feelings other than to write this and wish you only the very best.
Dear Alisa and Brad,
I hope you know how very much I appreciate everything you did for me. Most of all, you believed in me. You saw past the files and really got to know me. You spent time in my home, with my family, and you understood what I have gone through for the past four years. When I sat in the courtroom and listened to you talking to the jury, I was so impressed that you really understood how much we have suffered. You were able to tell my story.
I will never be able to thank you for all you have done. You really listened to me. My family and I could not have asked for better representation. You were much more than our lawyers, you were our friends.
When my wife died after what was supposed to be routine operation, I was in shock. I could not understand what had gone wrong. None of the doctors or nurses would give me an explanation. I kept calling the surgeon, he didn’t return my calls. I just wanted to know what had happened. I am so grateful to you for getting me an answer. I miss Mary every day, but my children and I have closure. I now know why the surgeon was avoiding my calls. Our lives will never be the same, but we are at peace knowing what happened.
Dear Alisa & Brad,
I have started this note at least 10 times. Some were too short; some were way too long – rambling on & on about Ray. I hope this one is just right. I want to thank you for everything you have done for me. I will never forget how kind you were to me & all the work you did. I don’t think I will ever get over losing Ray. As corny as it sounds – I knew he was the person I had dreamed of my whole life, the moment I saw him. He took my breath away.
I feel like most of me died on February 12th too. While I probably will grieve & mourn him the rest of my life – at least, thanks to you, I don’t feel guilty. You have no idea what a weight you took off of me. At least once a day, I replayed that last weekend over & over in my head. Trying to figure out what I missed. Now I know that I didn’t miss anything.
I will never forget the two of you & I wish you all the best that the world has to offer. Thank you – from the bottom of my heart.
Dear Alisa & Brad,
Thank you so much for remembering me. I can't believe this February, my husband will be gone 7 years – so it will be 5 years since you so kindly helped me. I am so very grateful that you gave me peace of mind. I know that you & I did everything we could & that has helped me.
Thank you for all you have done to help our family. Your kind and sympathetic nature is so comforting at such a worrisome time. You are truly a beautiful person inside & out. No words can express our gratitude.
Dear Brad and Alisa,
I just wanted to drop you a quick note saying thank you. There are very few truly good people in this world, and I am glad to have made your acquaintance. You guys don't know how very much you helped me and my family, and there is no need for me to go into details, but I will tell you that you have helped me put my life back together after this tragedy. Throughout the course of our conversations, you two have often given me more hope than you can know, that there are people in the legal system that do actually care about people who have been, as Brad so eloquently puts it, "screwed over". I cannot tell you how much that means to me. You fought for what I knew was right and you accomplished what others told me was impossible. You give meaning to your profession and I am proud that you are our lawyers!
Please do keep in touch. I hope that we never need your services again, but it is nice to know that you two will always be there for us.
To have your life devastated by a medical error....To have no obvious signs of injury.... To lose your career and life as you know it. These are the things I have experienced. To talk to a lawyer and be told "we don't think you have a case". To lose all hope of being able to financially afford to care for yourself and your family. Knowing your injury is real when the rest of the world can't see it.
Well, it starts with someone believing in you. That is when I found Brad Beckman and Alisa Marion. They took the time and had the patience to listen to me, my family, my friends, and my coworkers. They gathered all my medical records, they talked to my doctors that cared for me before and after the injury. They also consulted with the best doctors in the field to confirm the extent of the damage.
There was never a doubt in my mind that these two lawyers cared about me and my family. They believed in me...that was the greatest relief for me. They told me "no worries" and "let us do the worrying" and "you just take care of you". Those are the words you want to hear from someone who is fighting for you. And fight they did. These two wonderfully devoted lawyers fought like I have never seen before from anyone. The awesome team I had on my side with Brad and Alisa had the full attention of the jury, which led to a verdict in my favor for more than 5 million dollars.
This result, in my opinion, is solely due to the extreme hard work and tireless dedication of two people who believed in me from the start. I will never be able to thank you enough Brad and Alisa.
All my love and gratitude....Tina
I always thought of lawyers as unkind and unpleasant to talk to. They appear to be very callous and intimidating. After my accident I was not relishing the fact that I now for the first time needed a lawyer to represent me. I was expecting that a lawyer would not care anything about me, the person, but would only be interested in the case. So when I initially called Alisa and she called me back within hours from her cellphone, I thought to myself, in shock "What in the world is this?!"
Alisa has been so personable, concerned and interested in ME! I am not a dollar sign to her, or a case number, but I am a person who she respects and takes all the time I need to address my concerns and answer my questions. I know without a shadow of a doubt that God lead me to her! I have been so blessed to have her in my life during this stressful time and lastly, but surely not least, I have gained a friend.
Alisa and Brad have put new faces on what a lawyer is. Their pictures and information should be displayed in Merriam Webster's Dictionary to define lawyer.
So with all that being said, If you don't have Alisa and Brad representing you, YOU DO NOT have the right lawyer!
I've started this letter many times in the last year and I apologize for not sending it sooner to tell you how grateful I am that I found you when I needed someone the most. From our first phone call you became a trusted friend, a worthy advisor and my personal champion. Not to mention you made me laugh through all the pain and frustration of repeated surgeries. One would think that would be a bad thing after a triple by-pass but your kindness and humor made me forget about the pain.
I've never met another attorney as dedicated and as compassionate as you are Alisa. You always made me feel as though I was your only client and that couldn't have been easy with your busy schedule.
You're one of a kind Alisa Marion, and I am extremely thankful that God put you in my life when he did. I couldn't have asked for better representation, professionalism or integrity in an attorney or a friend. I ended up with both.

I want to thank you very much for believing in me when I had problems with my hip not too long after surgery. You and your firm were great to deal with and treated me with respect and dignity. You spent time and listened to me and worked hard to investigate my case. You also helped me to find an excellent specialist who was able to fix my hip problem.
There are people you meet in life that make an impression and you have done that.
Please keep in touch.
