J.A.K., Legal Affaire Secretary: Sacramento, CA
I cannot find the words to express my gratitude for the excellence of the representation you have given me. You are truly a lawyers lawyer.
I wanted you to know personally how much I appreciated you efforts on my part.
Let me thank you. My lawyers said you did a lot of research & wrote a good writ for me. I know you made a real effort to assist me. Shakespeare couldn’t have ‘write’ (oh well) any better. Gratefully yours.
Paul Ligda’s reputation for honesty, integrity, and a tenacity to fight for fairness is well known in this County. He has proven himself to be vitally interested in the rights of all people and their problems.
Paul, it was your victory. It might very well have been my defeat.
D.H.L: After Jury acquittal on burglary charge.
Thank you again for your kindness, patience and proficiency in handling this situation.
Thank you for your support and kind and caring approach throughout the affair and I feel you are above reproach in your profession.
Throughout each of the four trials, Mr. Ligda handled himself with extraordinary patience and professionalism. In many very difficult circumstances created by his clients through in-court acting out, not once did he come close to losing his composure, a most impressive display of restraint, let me assure you.
We wish to take this opportunity to personally thank you for your incredible and courageous defense of P.W. … We consider you (and we know lawyers) to be one of the very best criminal attorneys practicing before the bar today in California.
J.D.H., Executive Director
Your experience and knowledge promotes the proper respect the juvenile court system deserves.
