Wow this is a really good sentencing memorandum and so well written. I appreciate you writing this for me and I am extremely grateful for all that you have done. This means so much to me.
We really appreciate all of your help and expertise, it was such a stressful process and you really made us feel taken care of.
Thank you for everything you did for my case. I don't know what I would have done without your help.
So grateful to Mary and the firm who helped save our family! We don’t stop raving about you when we tell our story! Thank you for believing in us and fighting for us! We are SO thankful!
Thank you for everything that you have done for me. It was a pleasure meeting you as well.
Thank you so much for being an awesome attorney and helping us during this terrible time! Obviously, we couldn't have made it through without your great assistance--we're so appreciative! Wishing you all the best!
Dear Mary the Magnificent,
Thank you so much for your truly outstanding work! You snatched victory from the jaws of defeat and saved a young man from incarceration and hopelessness. We all feel blessed to have had you as our advocate and attorney. Forever indebted.
Again, thank you and your crew for all the help in this very long ordeal. He will succeed.
Thank you for your representation, you’ve impacted my life very greatly.
Mary and Kurt,
I wanted to send you a Thank You note. The dismissal is a big victory and thank you sooo much for always believing and supporting me! I am very happy that justice and truth prevailed.
Thank you and Mary and Marisa for all the effort you have put into our son's appeal. We are so grateful. Many thanks.
To the staff of C&N,
Thank you for all of your hard work. It is much appreciated. Viva Freedom!”
Three months ago when I choose C&N to represent me, I didn’t know what to expect. I was so lost, everything was blurry and honestly I wasn’t even sure if I was making the right decision.
After I spoke with Takura for the first time, I somehow knew I will be in good hands. I never ever imagined that the outcome would result how it did. Takura’s knowledge, professionalism, consistency and dedication is outstanding. It didn’t really matter what time of a day, I was always informed about what was going on, why something was happening, and what to do.
Thank you Takura for being exceptionally patient and understanding through this process. I truly appreciate how you brought my family and I to freedom. You will never really know the impact you had on us from the beginning to the end.
Thank you to all C&N staff, for all the hard work you’ve put into our case.
Hi Mary and Kurt,
Thank you again for everything you have done for my family and me.
Thank you for being a voice for me, and giving me hope again. Bless You All.
I just got the update from court....THANK YOU!! From the bottom of my heart I am grateful for all the work you put into this case. A huge thank you to Nicole and the team as well. I know it was a lot, but you all stayed the course and got us through this just like you said. Thank you for putting up with all of my neurotic emailing over the past few months. Even though you didn't have to speak to us, you did while making sure we were up to date while helping us keep our anxiety/fears at bay.
This has been a rollercoaster ride, but I'm grateful we had you on the ride with us.
Sincerely, thank you. Hope to never need to hire you again!
Good afternoon Marisa,
I’m so grateful and thankful you just brought tears to my eyes. You and the firm were and will remain a blessing to us both.
Thank you so much much. We will forever be grateful!!
You really are the best attorney! Thanks so very much.
Thank you and your team for all the work and time y'all have put into my case. I can never thank you and your team enough for what y'all have done so far and continue to do.
Good morning Marisa,
Thank you so much for everything!! This is exciting news, and it was great working with you. Have a great day.
Mary, Kurt, Lizzy, and the entire C&N team,
Now that the dust has settled a bit post-trial (and after the not guilty verdicts), we just wanted to say how thankful we are. However, words cannot adequately express our gratitude. We've been through a ton emotionally. But your firm made an impact on our family so immense that we could only smile in the end (post tears, of course)! Thanks again!
Thank you!! I am very happy to have you and Mary, and all of you be my side. Please pass my Thanks to them!
Thank you. Really appreciated you handling this for me with such urgency and professionalism.
Good Morning, Marisa!
I just wanted to say THANK YOU and I have finally paid the diversion fee off! This is literally because of you and I can't thank you enough for helping me! If I could give you a million dollars I would! Thank you thank you and thank you again! This is all over and I'm so glad this is over.
Hi Mary and Kurt (and Marisa, Lizzy and all from CNDefenders),
I just want to send you another heartful thank you letter for what you all have done to help me and my family, people who I love and love me, to unveil the truth, protect people's constitutional rights, and make this world better! Thank you all again.
I want to thank you again for all you did for us last week. We truly appreciate all your time and dedication to fight for justice.
You are and have been the very best attorney I could ever hope for. I sincerely thank you for everything, always….
I am sure in your line of work that you see this a lot. I haven’t had any personal experience yet with this sort of thing. I want to say thank you for holding my hand and guiding us through this. I know you see this all the time, but you truly made a very scary experience not so scary. I don’t mean just thank you for the outcome, I mean thank you for your bedside manner.
Ms. Ronayne-Krause was very professional and caring. She truly understands the stress of legal matters and was reassuring. There was always excellent communication. Hghly recommend.
Thank you so much for your help and everything you have done for us.
Thanks for helping our son and bringing home the gold!
Dear Marisa, Lizzy, and the C&N team,
Thank you so much for your generosity, kindness, and help! I am very grateful for your office.
I can’t thank you enough for today and everything. You have helped me regain faith in good attorneys. You are a gifted empathetic lawyer that I hope goes as far as you can. Thank you for your patience with me as I know I can be difficult. Huge gratitude I’ll always hold you in the hugest regard. You are an amazing person.
Thank you again.
Hi Mary and Kurt,
Thank you so much for being with me for the past year during such a difficult time of my life, I really appreciate everything you have done when seeking justice and truth for me.
Please give my well wishes to all the many wonderful people who are part of your Firm. Every single person I’ve had the good fortune to interact with there was exceptionally personable and genuinely amazing at their job. They are a credit to you; not surprisingly, they only further cemented my faith that I’m in the best hands possible with you representing me. So, again…Thank you…For everything you’ve done for me already and for those things you will undoubtedly do on my behalf in the future. You will always have my sincerest and most heartfelt gratitude, Mary…I would be lost without your unshakable and unwavering guidance and support.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!! We couldn’t have pulled this off without you. You are a lifesaver.
I am so thankful for all that you have done for my family and I. Please keep up the good work. Thank you!
Thank you so so so so so much for everything! I can't tell you how much we appreciate all the work you and your amazing team did!!! You guys freaking ROCK!
Thank you so much, for everything. In particular, for your belief in my son and the respect you showed him. I truly believe that was pivotal in how he saw himself and how he coped. We’re very happy with this outcome, and feel great about moving on.
Thank you so much, I really appreciate you. We could not have done this without you, and I really mean that.
I can’t thank you enough for taking care of our son!! YOU ROCK!
Kurt & The Team,
Thank you so much for your unwavering support during the Title IX and RVSM Process at Michigan State. Your knowledge, expertise, and willingness to fight for me throughout the lengthy process was like nothing I've seen before. Your paralegals are outstanding, and Tony was great at relieving my anxiousness. I'm happy that the truth came to light, and that I was found not responsible on every single count using such a low standard like the preponderance of the evidence.
Thank you again for everything!
I wanted to personally thank you from the bottom of my heart. You were there for me every step of the way. Never left me hanging or feeling like you didn’t care. You showed Grace, and what a real attorney looks like, acts like, and the empathy you demonstrated is unmeasurable. You have a true gift. You saved my family, I don’t know how to ever repay you for that. Well money, but that doesn’t count as you can’t put a price tag on the love you have for your children.
If there’s anything I can do to help boost your name let me know. I’m so grateful for you.
My heart is full again.
I hope I don’t have to use your services again but if I do, I know who I’ll call. Huge Gratitude
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I know I am on the right path with you!
Thank you Marisa,
It was a pleasure working with you! We appreciate all your help and your kindness.
You are the kindest, most professional attorney I’ve come across. Know you and your firm is appreciated.
Thank you so much for all you have done for me. We really appreciate all your hard work. Thanks again!
Mary and Marisa,
Thank you so, so much for your representation in this matter. Your office is amazing, and we are extremely grateful for your expertise, guidance and reassurance during this process.
Mary & Team!
Just wanted to thank you for fighting with us for our family! May the Lord bless you all! Keep fighting for Truth! We are blessed to have had your team and are so thankful for each of you.
Mary, Kurt, and Kim,
Thank you for everything you have done. I am very happy with your work. You are very talented.
Good morning Marisa,
Oh my gosh, I am still kind of shaking. My family and I can't thank you enough, we just really can't! Beyond all this stuff, you as a person from the day we spoke were so genuine and kind, and my dad won't stop talking about how great you were. You are an amazing person as well lawyer, Marisa. I mean it.
I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for me.
Thank you so much for your help so far. You have been very clear and on top of it, and I feel safe with you.
A weight has been lifted off of me, I am still in a bit of awe. I appreciate all of your guidance and knowledge through this whole ordeal.
Please give my regards to Mary as well, I couldn’t have done this without her.
I cannot thank you enough for all that you and your team have done for me. I will always be extremely grateful and thankful for everything.
Thanks from my wife and I. You and your firm were so helpful and supportive. We really appreciated it and all that was done. I know that the professionalism you and your firm displayed was good for our peace of mind
Mary, Kurt, and Kim, Wow!!! You did an amazing job and your hard work and time poured into this shows! Thank you for fighting for my husband. All my gratitude.
I truly cannot thank you enough for your generosity and help throughout this process. I could not have asked for a better outcome, so thank you!
Thank you so much for everything you have done for me, thank you so much for representing me. Words will never explain, much appreciated.
Thank you Mary!
I just want to tell you thank you so much for everything! So grateful for you and your team and everything you all have done and continue to do! I really can’t thank you enough for having my back.
I’m sure I’m beginning to sound repetitive, but I feel I have to express my gratitude to you once again. Thank you so very much. You are an amazing attorney; I’ve never seen you unprepared or even seeming to have any lack or deficiency in any aspect of my case. It’s truly wonderful to watch your case presentation; you have to be counted as the best or, at least, among the very best criminal defense attorneys in Michigan. You’re certainly the singular best I’ve ever seen. I’m not being hyperbolic. Amazing…I don’t what else I can say other than I’m VERY thankful you’re on my side.
I was given Chartier & Nyamfukudza and Kurt Krause’s name from several experts in the field. It is not difficult to understand why. Kurt quickly responded to all emails and phone calls and guided me through a very scary time in my life. I would not hesitate to refer Kurt to anyone in need of expert representation.
I'm just writing to thank you and your staff for the job you all did for me. I hope and pray for the best as you all keep working for those that need you all.
Again thank you and God Bless.
Marisa handled my expungement case. She is intelligent and extremely personable. I have to say that I was amazed by her dedication! She always ensured I knew the entire process and was comfortable with it. She always answered any questions in a professional and timely manner. If I ever need litigation I will absolutely hire Marisa with Chartier & Nyamfukudza, P.L.C.
Mary, again, I want to thank you for all you’ve done for me. I want you all to know that your efforts were always appreciated. Your sympathy and altruism warmed my bitter old heart, which itself is a huge accomplishment to my way of thinking, as my perception on the state of humanity and my opinions about my fellow man was definitely in the waning phase prior. Thank you.
Dear Mary, Takura, and Lizzy,
Now that the sheer adrenaline and raw emotions of that fateful day are behind us, I wanted to take a thoughtful and reflective moment to express my most heartfelt gratitude to the three of you. I will not attempt to speak for my wife, but trust that her feelings mirror my own, multiplied a hundred fold.
When we initially sought your council, I was not sure what to expect. Would our relationship be stoic and strictly professional? Would it be cordial and jovial? Would it be just another robotic transaction between client and business? This was an entirely new and unfamiliar world to me and therefore I did not have the slightest clue what to expect.
What I saw, felt, and experienced from the three of you far surpassed my wildest expectations and immediately eliminated any fear or trepidation I held. While I will never truly fathom the depths of despair and anguish my wife surely felt throughout this nightmare, I know that the incredible weight she carried took herculean effort to maintain the facade of normalcy. I know that her contact and communication with you always lifted her up, and your encouraging words always seemed to come at the exact moments when she was at her lowest points.
I will not ramble on and point out every little instance that revealed how I know that my wife was more to you than just a client. I will however say that your demeanor, character, presence, thoughtfulness, and compassion was fully revealed when, before the verdict was read, the three of you encircled my beautiful, brave, and nearly broken wife, and you encouraged her, held her, formed a human wall around her that protected her from not only her own family trying their best, albeit unsuccessfully, to keep their emotions in check, but you created an impenetrable barrier that shielded her from the piercing gaze of the very person who tried to destroy her. In that moment, I knew that you all had become as important and precious to her as any family member could ever hope to be. To see the three of you hold my wife so close, and cry with her so unabashedly, was among one of the most beautiful and heartwarming moments I've experienced in my fifty five years of life. I knew without a doubt you all genuinely cared about her. I knew that there were others in this world who I could entrust my wife's life to.
Mary, you are a beautiful and powerful force of nature not to be fucked with! The tenacity in which you defended my wife was nothing short of awe-inspiring. I am proud to say that when my wife was on the stand she mirrored your strength - She was back to the woman I had known for 35 years. I never thought I would live to see another person as powerful as my wife, but I finally did, and it was not surprising that YOU were that person. You reignited that flame within her long enough for her to stand steadfast against the assault on her life, character, and integrity, by the corrupt, unaccountable, goliath that is The State! You, gave my wife her life back. You, restored her hope. It was a privilege to see you in action! It was a defining moment in my life to see you defend my wife. You will be in my heart and soul until I draw my last breath.
Takura, you Armani Einstein... you are an astonishing man with a tremendously big, beautiful, intellect who has a supreme command of legal knowledge that surpasses not only your fly style, but anything that I ever could have imagined I would see in my life. I am deeply honored that one of the silver linings of my son being in that courtroom, was him being able to observe you defending his mother. You cannot possibly have known this, but your presence and demeanor ignited a spark within him, and for that, you are reserved a special place in my heart as long as my memories may last.
Lizzy, you are the most impressive paralegal I have ever seen in my life and it was a pleasure to meet and know you! The kind and compassionate way you treated my wife and family cannot be understated. I feel like I am a fairly decent judge of character, so I can thoroughly appreciate those little but not-at-all insignificant things that you did and said that lifted my wife's spirit, made her smile, and made her laugh. My wife is the most precious thing in my life, so when you helped her, it never escaped my attention, and I never viewed it as anything less than heroic. Please know that your words helped her as much as any doctor tending to a physical wound would, probably more, because you helped to heal her soul. For that, you will always have a special place in my heart. Oh, don't be surprised if in two and a half years when my wife and I renew our vows on our 30th, we contact you. It's YOU, or Vegas Elvis, and since we did The King on our 10th...... 🙂
I know life holds great things for all of you. Hopefully, when you hear from us in the future, it is just to inquire about you and your lives, or to say hello, bring some baked treats by the office, or to give Takura a proper scrapbook.
Love.... Yeah, I said it and I fucking meant it!!
I just want to say THANK YOU. Your call yesterday about no charges being issued was the most amazing news I have received in many years. Your support and guidance throughout this ordeal has been phenomenal. You and your team are incredible and we will forever be grateful for all you've done for us and our son. It was a pleasure getting to know you and we wish you all the best for the future!
We cannot thank you enough for resolving this matter so quickly.
I have long bemoaned how this country fails to understand the importance of good criminal defense attorneys and the critical role they play in ensuring that justice has any chance at all--and I never seriously imagined that we'd be in a position to have to find and retain one. But, life is nothing if not surprising.
In real time, for us, every day felt long and dark. In legal time, it was a blink of an eye. I fully understand that this matter resolved successfully because you moved quickly and did everything possible to get ahead of the ball. You and your team were incredibly efficient and professional. After your initial conversation with us, I was confident that whatever could be done would be done-- and it was.
I remain incredibly concerned about the state of the criminal justice system in this country, but my faith that there are good and competent people out there working hard to do the right thing has been bolstered. I thank you and your team for that.
I am incredibly appreciative of the friendliness and responsiveness of you and everyone else at the firm, which made all of this so much less stressful. I am also thankful that you left no stone unturned in terms of avenues to explore, which is the main reason this was resolved so fast. I will absolutely be recommending you to other people in the event they ever need legal help, and posting a glowing review online.
Thank you again.
Thank you so much for all you did for our son. You made this process as painless as it could be. I appreciate you and your team so much.
Thank you so much! What a relief. For real, I cannot say it enough times. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I appreciate all the work you did for me.
We utilized Kurt Krause with Chartier & Nyamfukudza, P.L.C. Kurt was exceptional from start to finish. Having never dealt with the legal system or judicial system ever before, he helped us navigate through all of our questions and concerns. He guided us the entire way and the end result was a win for us. Kurt was kind, understanding, patient and very knowledgeable in his profession. I highly recommend Kurt and all of the staff at Chartier & Nyamfukudza, P.L.C.
Thank you again for all that you have done for me! I appreciate it so very much!!
I want to thank you for EVERYTHING you and your staff did for me. You were all terrific. I have so much to be grateful for. It gives me great pleasure to be able to thank the associates who worked so hard on my case.
I want to thank you, Lizzy, and everyone there…you are all simply the best, and I haven’t the words to express how much that has meant to me—helped me—in some of the hardest days of my life. It’s meant everything.
With blessings and gratitude.
Let me again say you guys ROCK! Our family and friends were so impressed with you today (and of course we were too!).
Thank you for your hard work for us and our family.
Thank you so much. It meant a lot to me to have you and Takura on my side in this case. When I felt depressed it gave me some peace of mind. Thank you for all that you did. I will always be greatful. I'm honored to call both of you my friend and you are both my absolute favorite lawyers. They don't get any better than you and Takura.
I really don't know how to express how grateful I am for you and your efforts. Feel very lucky to have found you and your firm.
I especially want to thank you and your associates for the support and help through all this you guys are phenomenal. You all put up with inexperienced questions and answered them on a level I could understand and relate to. I don't know how to express my gratitude.
Mary and Kurt,
Thanks for all your work for our family!!!
Good evening Marisa,
I am so glad that I chose you to represent me. I agree it was a pleasure to meet you and work with your team. I appreciate all of the hard work and honesty throughout the case.
Thank you for everything and best of luck to you in all of your future endeavors as well. It’s been a pleasure working with you guys.
"Thank you" for believing in our son and everything all of you have done for him!
I appreciate all you did for me and cannot thank you enough for the guidance and support you gave me through this whole ordeal.
I really appreciate all the work you have done for me.
Thanks for doing a great job the whole time!
I just wanted to thank you again for all you did for me. I did not expect the best case scenario for my situation. I appreciated your calm demeanor and the effort you put in to make sure I came out okay through this. Although I never plan to be in this situation again, I will keep you in mind and pass on recommendations.
Mary! I am grateful for all of your guidance throughout this. I could not be happier with the outcome. You rock!!
Be well and take care!
Listening to Mary in court was like listening to Beethoven. She was amazing!
I would like to take the opportunity to wholeheartedly express my gratitude to you. I do understand, this was not a feasible case and it required a considerable amount of time and resources. I want to thank you for your time and unwavering determination in representing my fiance and the time you took to speak with me throughout this process. Please pass my appreciation to your staff as well.
I wish you rich in happiness and fulfillment!
I am so grateful to have had your expert professional help to get my record clean, along with your kind understanding of my situation.
Thank you for taking the time out to help me and to fight for the injustice that has been placed upon me. It is a blessing to have someone like yourself helping me, and I thank God for that everyday.
Thank you again for being my beacon of hope in the darkest period of my life. God bless you.
Thanks for all the help with my case. You've been a calming voice in this stressful situation.
I want to thank you for your zealous defense of our son. You were definitely the right lawyer.
Thank you again for everything.
We really appreciate everything you and your team have done to help us through this. The support and guidance you have given us has helped us immensely.
Thanks for everything!
We will never be able to thank you and your team for everything you’ve done for us. We appreciate how you defended our son more than you’ll ever know. If we ever have the need, we would absolutely work with you and your team again. You would be our first recommendation to any of our friends and family who needed the assistance you and your team can provide. It was a great pleasure working with you and team. Hope you all stay safe and healthy!
Thank you for your kind words and for all you did to help my daughter with navigating through the issues surrounding the accident and ticket. Your support was also important helping her to emotionally move ahead.
I just wanted to thank you and your team for helping us so much!
Thank you Mary!!
It almost seems surreal. We will NEVER be able to thank you for what you’ve done for us. The data/facts that you were able to draw out in your cross examinations and articulate in your closing were what was referenced as influential to the decision. It was simply amazing to see you work.
Thank you again for your amazing support and guidance! It is a real pleasure working with you.
My family and I cannot tell you how much we appreciate all that you have done for us. The hearing was one of the more difficult things we have ever been through. Your support, guidance, and counsel has allowed us to get through this better than we ever expected. Watching you fight for our family the other day was amazing to say the least.
Thank you for all that you and your team have done. You are an amazing group of people. The fact that you all care so much about a young man that you just recently met means the world to us.
You provided confidence, direction, and calm in a very stressful time for me. It still means a lot. Thank you. Cheers!
Thank you so much for all the great work you and your staff did on my behalf. It was a great relief.
I want to thank you for taking my case and helping me to successfully defend myself against these false allegations. I appreciate your support throughout the case. Thanks!
Thank you so much for everything you did for me and for being by my side throughout all of this.
I just have to say THANK YOU for your hard work and dedication on my case. I couldn't thank you enough!! Words can never express how much I am so grateful to have the team of Chartier & Nyamfudkudza on my side through that process of having your life in the hands of the court system. You are "The Man" "The Real MVP" Takura and don't you ever forget that! Me and my family can't make enough words to express on how grateful we are for you and your knowledge, expertise, and honesty. Thank you to the entire team that have been nothing but courteous, helpful, and wonderful to me and my family, even showing there support when we lost our mother and was still battling my case. I can say that they DO have your BEST interest at heart at all times! If I could give them a MILLION stars I would! If I ever know anyone who is need of help I will most definitely refer them to Chartier & Nyamfudkudza!
Again THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! YOU MEAN MORE TO US THAN JUST BUSINESS, YOUR OUR FAMILY!❤❤❤❤
Thank you so much. It was a big relief to get this resolved. I doubt it would have turned out so well without your help.
Thank you thank you!!!
Thanks for the support, professionalism, and advice you gave us throughout this difficult time.
Thanks again for everything you have done for me! You are something special and I am glad you are the one representing me. That includes the entire office!
Thank you so much for your work on my case and for your help in all of this. It means the world.
Chartier and Nyamfukudza, PLC provided professional efficient and effective services. They were able to reduce my felony charges down to a misdemeanor with minimal sentencing. The team is composed of highly professional people who not only take care of your legal needs but care about you individually throughout the process. Takura is highly competent and poised but also continually showed warmth and compassion throughout my entire process. The entire staff is accommodating and respond to needs quickly and precisely. I would highly recommend this team to stand with you during your challenging times.
Thanks again for everything!
Thank you so much for what you did for me Marisa. I really appreciate you in the biggest way ever. You're going to be my inspiration to get my life on track I truly appreciate it.
I’m so excited I’m at a loss for words. I’m really blessed to have found you and your team. A sincere thank you, you’ve help me a lot thank you so much.
Thank you again so, so much for your work, and your help. And thank you also for being patient with us and our questions, it means a lot to us. Thank you!
I just want to let you know that I appreciate everything you and your entire team has done for me and I am grateful that the most high delivered me such a blessing who is as kind and caring as yourself and I hope that for your act of compassion that the most high blesses you on your journey and delivers everything that your heart desires for being who you are and I am honored to have met you and to have gotten the chance to know you.
I want you and your team to know that I am thankful and appreciate all of the hard work you guys put in. I always knew you guys were working hard. Not only did you represent me well, but you also gave me sound advice which I have not forgotten. Please don’t stop doing the great things that you do and are capable of. I wish you and your team all the best.
Thank you for everything you have done for me. I appreciate your help and guidance throughout this.
Thank you sooooo much Marisa. I appreciate you and everything you guys have done for me. And I really appreciate those words it really means a lot hearing from you. Again thanks you are definitely my go to.
Thank you for your prompt response and action. You and your firm had been good and I hope to never engage y’all again.
Thanks for everything. I can't imagine going through this without you in my corner.
Thank you so much for your brilliant work! We are so grateful to you for representing us in the court!
I cannot thank you enough for your excellent work and the work of your team. The last couple years have been extremely difficult and I am thankful we are on the other side of this and hopefully this will stay in our rear view mirror. From the moment we had our initial meeting, I felt you were the right person for my son. Your kindness, compassion and grit are perfectly aligned with your intellect and presence in the courtroom.
Thank you for everything.
I just received the brief—I think that it is excellent work! I appreciate the efforts of you, Kim, and the rest of the staff. I think you did a really good job of communicating the issues. Thank you again for being such a strong advocate, a wise counselor, beautiful woman, and good friend. Please keep up the amazing work.
I am extremely thankful and fortunate to have your firm’s help in one of the most difficult times of my life. May you continue fighting for those who can’t fight for themselves.
Thank you so much for all of your hard work on the appeal brief. Thank you again so, so much for trying to help me. You have no idea how much it means.
I just want to thank you again for believing in me during this difficult process. Your ability to convince them to see the truth beyond their biases made a big difference. I’m forever grateful to you, and look forward to moving on past this painful nightmare. Blessings to you!
Gratitude is to be thankful. I’m grateful for your graciousness. The time you invested into my case as well as invested into me by caring and being passionate over my well-being. I’m grateful that the higher power sent such a blessing to impact my life for the better. You’ve helped open my eyes. Now I see the world through a different view. I now see the world through the sight of enlightenment. For this day forward I’m pushing myself to strive and reach new heights because I’ve finally come to an understanding with myself that I’m better than I allow myself to be. I’m grateful for you as well as your whole legal team.
Always and forever your friend.
We cannot thank you enough for your help. This has been an experience that we never imagined that we would go through. Even if we thought we would go down this path, we never could have imagined what it would be like. Without your knowledge and assistance I feel like we would have been lost. Your skill has given our son a chance to overcome his poor judgement and egregious behaviour. He owes you alot for giving him this chance.

We feel blessed to have Mary on our side and want you to know we feel the same way about you. You truly are great partners.
This has been a very stressful time for the entire family and feel without a doubt this was the right decision. Please know that you have brought great relief to all of us. We are forever grateful for both you and Mary!!

As always, I appreciate everything you have done for me and continue to do for me. Thank you.
Thank you Mary.
We feel you did a wonderful job presenting the case to the Supreme Court. Anyway, Thank you again.

Thank you again for your and your team’s support and action during this very uncertain time for us. From the first phone call we made thru yesterday I am thankful that you helped guide us through this process. I was particularly appreciative of your timely communications when we had questions. Many thanks and if there is any need for future client references I’d be happy to speak on your team’s behalf.
I wanted to thank you again for your time, resources, and support. I am super thankful for all your efforts and patience with me and my family. You are wonderfully made, Mary. I truly appreciate you.

On behalf of all of us, we just wanted to thank you and your staff for the fine work you did for us yesterday. We all know it’s not over by a longshot, but we understand how important this was and how well it was handled by you and your people.
I appreciate your attention to my case, your hard work, and kindness. You are true professionals.
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season.
To everyone at Chartier & Nyamfukudza (including the canine division),
Working together as a team, you created a spiritual safe haven for us while our world was turned upside-down. During a time when we found it hard to trust anyone but each other (and family), we learned we could trust all of you to do what was best for us – and to do it better than anyone else. We can’t thank you enough.
C&N Team: I appreciate your attention to my case, your hard work, and kindness. You are true professionals.
Thank you SO much! We are praying for you always. So thankful for you.
Today kindness is an act of rebellion, so thank you for taking time out to help me. I pray for your success in life, may you and your family stay healthy.
Thank you so much for everything - you were so helpful, and we appreciated your time with our son, in particular, to put him at ease while understanding the severity of the situation. Your team is amazing and we will highly recommend you. Thanks again.
I can’t even describe the weight that was lifted after the dismissal. Thank you so much. Thank you, thank you.
Thank you for being such a strong advocate and amazing woman. And I like your TV show!
Mary & Takura,
Thank you for all your help and kindness.
The circumstances I was up against were truly unimaginable. You never over promised, never shied away from a tough question, and were there for me always.
You are a terrific advocate. I am so thankful another attorney referred me to you. Thank you for fighting for me. I am on cloud nine knowing all my hopes and dreams are still alive.
This is amazing news. Your support through this process was indispensable. You are a godsend!
I’m am so relieved to hear this news. Thank you for constant support during the worst time of my life. I could go on and on. THANK YOU!
Please call me when you get a chance so I can thank you personally.
Mary, I wanted to genuinely say thank you for everything you’ve done for me. I have been able to rest in your care and confidence and I will never forget it. I’m truly grateful for you, your hard work and your reputation. I pray for you often. You’ve been a huge blessing in my life. You are steady, but truly caring. You’re frank, but graceful; very intelligent, but extremely compassionate. Thank you for always being there for me!
Tony is a gentleman and a very kind host. It was always a joy to be greeted by him when I walked into your office.
Hi Mary, Thank you again for taking care of my son in such a difficult situation.
Thank you so much. Millions of thanks to our wonderful Attorney Mary and all her staff members. Mary, I really don’t know how to show you my gratitude. Thanks again and again.
Mary, I wanted to thank you again for the hard work that you all are doing. And please thank everybody at the firm for their hard work and assistance. You are all Angels to me. :-)
Mary, thank you.
My family and I will forever be in your debt for all you've done. Thank you.
As always, I appreciate you and your whole team for believing in me and assisting me with this stage of my life. Thank you.
Thank you so much. I really appreciate everything you're doing and can never possibly express my gratitude enough to come close to how much I thank you.
We know you will always do a bang up job! You are truly one of a kind!! God Bless.
Good Morning, Mary,
Thank you so much for everything, it was a long battle but we WON!!! I’m so glad to have met you and have you represent me and will definitely send others your way.
I am truly grateful for all your help and support. Thank you so much.
I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for our family. Thank you.
Thank you so much. You are amazing and have been from day one and I just couldn't be more grateful for all you've done.
There isn't any other attorney for me. Ever!! You are my go-to attorney. Keep up the good work fighting the right fights. I owe you big time. I'm proud of you Mary and more great things are headed your way. Thanks again for all you have done. You all are family now & forever. I appreciate your time, dedication, and patience. Awesome are you!! Once over thank you!!
We thank you and your team for all of the hard work, you are a blessing and an angel.
Great job today. I was really proud of you. Thank you for fighting so hard for my brother - so much that the judge recognized your passion. It was an honor to meet the team.
I found myself in a legal situation that I never, ever thought I’d be in. I initially called an attorney I know but found out he was retiring so he referred me to the Chartier & Nyamfukudza firm. I initially talked to Mary Chartier and she didn’t believe I had done anything wrong but the system was failing me. Guilty until proven innocent is how I felt. I have never been under so much stress. I then talked and met with Kurt Krause and then Takura Nyamfukudza ended up being my attorney. Both had a hand in handling issues and reviewing my file along the way. I entered into an agreement with them of what’s called the precharge stage. Because of their hard work and compassion and understanding, my stress level did go down, and my situation ended up having no charges against me. Takura was on it every step of the way and I can’t thank him enough. That phone call and e-mail that said it was over and no charges brought was the best news ever. And I can proudly say that I can spell and pronounce Takura’s name now!
Thanks to all of you!
Thank you so so much for all your help and hard work. I cannot express how much your help means to me and my family.
I cannot say thank you enough for your time, concern and thoughtfulness.
I appreciate you.
So, Thank you so very much!!
I'm In debt to you for Life.
Once over, Thanks!!
I wanted to take a minute to write a quick thank you note. The brief was incredible. It is the best I have ever read. I would like to thank your entire staff for the investigation, road work and detailing. I would like to especially thank Lizzy. I know she worked tirelessly on it.
Finally, I would really like to thank you for your insight into my case. I could tell you read everything and gave more insight than I could have ever imagined. Once again, thank you all.
Thank you again for your support and professionalism. We all so appreciate your representation. Sincerely!
You are by far the best lawyer I've had. You are fearless and have no problem raising "Novel Legal Arguments". That is the sign of a true Jurist. When I grow up I want to be just like you!!!!
I’m so grateful every day to have you as my attorney and fighting for me.
You're my favorite attorney on the planet.
In June of 2018, I found myself charged with an OWI, high BAC, and possession of marijuana. Having only had one previous charge/conviction, and one that was fairly minor (an MIP), I was in a complete panic. I called the office of Mary Chartier and Takura Nyamfukudza on a Sunday, and received a call back promptly the following Monday. I was able to speak to Mary, who put me in contact with Takura. I was very impressed with the speediness of the initial contact, as well as the speediness of the following communications as my case went on. Besides receiving suggestions on what I should be doing while awaiting my sentencing, I also received a great deal of encouragement and positivity from Takura, reducing my stress greatly.
Takura drove to Petoskey (where my charges were incurred) for each court date and was extremely comforting and supportive during the process. He was able to have the high BAC charge dropped, the possession of marijuana charge was dropped due to my possession of a medical marijuana license, and during sentencing, I received NO probation, and only had to pay a fine! I was absolutely thrilled, and he shared in my excitement with a big bear hug outside of the courtroom. By the end of the ordeal, I felt I had made a friend, and had not simply hired an attorney. Throughout the process, I received a condolences card from the office when a family member passed, as well as a birthday card. All of this meant very much to me; when one is already beating themselves up for a foolish decision that landed them in jail and at the wrong end of the law, feeling so much kindness and support truly helps, and this office delivered that kindness and support and then some.
Three months after the fact, I am still dealing with issues regarding the suspension of my driver license as a result of refusing the roadside breathalyzer. Takura has been in contact with me on a regular basis, and though my license was supposed to be suspended for one full year, with his help I now have a restricted license and am able to get where I need to go. I cannot recommend Takura and his office strongly enough.
It was a pleasure meeting you and watching you work. Thanks again for all the work you did. I now know how important it is to have the correct people.
Hi Mary and Takura,
You and your staff have been phenomenal to us during this time. Words can not express how I am feeling right now.
Thank you all.
Thanks to you, your staff, and Takura for all your help getting us through this. We appreciate all your efforts on our behalf.
Thanks to you, your staff, and Takura for all your help getting us through this. We appreciate all your efforts on our behalf.
I wanted to thank you personally for the outstanding job you and your team did on my behalf. I am humbled by the effort and extremely grateful for the results.
Again, Thank You from the heart.
Thank you you've done an amazing job and I just can't thank you enough. thank you again so much you are an amazing person and I will never forget what you've done for me so thank you from me and the rest of my family.
Thank you for your continued work on our behalf. We appreciate everything you do!
You've been so amazing I don't know how you worked through this insane case but I couldn't appreciate it more.
Thank you soooooo much again for all your help and kindness. We appreciate it so much.
All I can say is “WOW”. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude! THANK YOU SO MUCH! You're amazing!!!! I cannot thank you enough.
Mary and Takura,
The circumstances in which we met you, and other events, show that there is a Divine Hand guiding all of us!
Thank you for everything!
I really respect and admire what you all do on a daily basis. A special thank you for believing in my sister's case and being a voice of justice for her!
There are not enough words to show our gratitude!
I wanted to write and thank you so much for so expertly representing me that we didn't even have to go trial - the prosecutor dismissed the case.
Thank you for a job well done. May God continue to bless you and to ensure that you thrive and are rewarded abundantly for your excellent work.
I want to thank you for all your hard work and great representation! I'm most definitely grateful! I thought you did an outstanding job!
I would like to thank you and everyone else in the office for making me feel so comfortable and safe. I am in good hands.
Thank you all again for such a positive experience.
I want to thank you for all your support and diligent work. I truly appreciate everything from your passion to your patience with me and my family.
Thank you for the kind words. I couldn't be more pleased with your work and the results. You may have sensed that about mid-stream between my daughter and my ex that we were not all aligned in direction. Your clarity in responses when we discussed options went a long way in helping convince the dissidents that we had the right tools and the right approach. Having not met you I was really going on a dose of history and a smidge of blind faith. Again for more than being a bit out on a limb, I couldn't be happier with the results.
If I could help you in the future with clients that may need an esoteric nudge I would be most happy to provide a glowing reference. Two small regrets that may only be temporary: 1 That we have not the chance to shake hands. 2. That I missed the photograph of the ties!
Best of luck.
I would like to thank you again for what you did for me and my family!!!! You are absolutely the best attorney I have ever met and as you know my family has a long list of attorneys.
Your biggest advocate!
I want to take the time to thank you sincerely for everything you have worked so hard on over the past several months, regarding my case. There are no words to say that express my gratitude for everything you have done. Yesterday you were my rock, my support and I think God chose the perfect Attorney to represent me in this situation. I have never had anyone go to battle for me like you did yesterday. THANK YOU!! You are appreciated!
You are a very kind man with a lot of passion for your career. You are kind and considerate of your clients, their feelings, stress, and fears through this process and you have a way with your humor, to make everyone in the courtroom feel at ease. You did an excellent job and I am thankful you were my attorney and not someone else.
I wish you good things in your journey as an attorney. Never lose your heart and compassion for your clients and others. You will do great things!
Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I just want to drop you a few lines of my appreciation by first saying "Thank you." I appreciated everything you have done for me and my family during this tough travel. You have a fighter's mentality and I love that about you. Keep up the great work and dedication to defense.
I still thank God every day for you and all you did for my family. Know our family forever appreciates you.
You are a truly wonderful and inspiring person and I commend your fight for true justice. Thank you so much for all you do.
Thank you so much for your help and advocacy! We are both so relieved to have such a favorable outcome. It’s so wonderful to see his smile return and the burden lifted from him. While he still needs to navigate the requirements of probation his obvious relief of having a plan and way to a brighter future was evident almost immediately.
A final thank you for everything you did for me. You are awesome and most pleasant to work with!
May God Bless and give you wonderful days ahead.
Mary, All I can say is “WOW”. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I wonder if you still remember me. I hope everything is doing great for you.
About 3 years ago, I had a visa problem when I visited China because of the legal case that I involved. At that time, you were so kind to help me and send me all the documents that I need. It's been several years but I have always remembered your kindness and your good heart.
I just want to say thank you again and wish you all the best.
I have finished my Ph.D degree and have moved to Ohio last year and am working and living in Cleveland right now. If you have a chance to visit Cleveland, please let me know and I would like to take you to dinner or a Cavalier game or something else.
Mary, Lizzy, Tony, and Gang,
Thank you for all you've done for our family.
Mary, I want to tell you thank you so very much for all the work you and your office has put in to my case, there are no words for my gratitude.
There's no one I would trust other than you if I ever needed help again. You're the best! Just wanted you to know I think of you often and thank God every day for all the good you did for me and my family. You will always be special to me.
Thank you for taking the journey with us. I will continue to work with the chief and supervisor regarding these issues, as many more young men and parents were affected by the same profiling issues. I agree that the new chief changed the culture. His presence is needed. A legislator wanted me to update him. I can now contact them and let them know changes will be made. This happened for a reason. I know many can now enjoy the great aftermath of this. We will be sure to invite you when my son graduates. I'll have to invite you to my graduation party as well. My graduation is scheduled for the summer of 2018. Well, I’m catching a flight to California tonight to visit my other son. I Need a vacation. I'm ready for the beach!!
You did a fantastic job representing my brother, who you clearly believe in. Thank you
We really appreciated your help and the outcome that you achieved for our daughter.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all that you did for my son. We really appreciate it!
I just wanted to say thank you for taking on my case and helping us through this time. I truly don't know what we would have done without you.
I want to thank you for walking us through this difficult journey. We are forever grateful.
Thank you for all you have done for our family. We are forever grateful.
I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for the outstanding job you did in trial! Unfortunately for them, my lawyer’s a beast. Also, I’d like to say thank you to everyone else who contributed their hard work and time to my defense! Thank you and everyone else for all the hard work you all put into my case! I just want you to know that I was extremely happy with your representation! Thanks again. Take care and God bless!
Thank you so much, we appreciate all you do and have done for our family. Thank You.
I thank you for your expertise, understanding, and support of my son. I don't think we could have been in better hands.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much and I am so thankful for you. You are an AMAZING Lawyer!!! THANK YOU again.
Thank you for all the time and hard work you put in on my case! Most of all never giving up on me when everyone else did or selling me out. I'm grateful that I had you fighting for my rights.
Our family wanted to express our gratitude and thanks to you & your staff at this challenging time in our lives. Your dedication, time, and advice have been invaluable. Thank you.
I appreciate all the hard work all of you have put towards my case. All of you are such a true blessing to my life!
I wanted to thank you for a 3rd chance at a free life. Without you, it wouldn’t have been possible. Not only are you an amazing lawyer but a great person. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I wanted to thank you for doing such a great job. After watching you in court, I would recommend you to any of my friends or family. Again ….Thank You!!
THANK YOU for all you did to help this family and their dogs. You are a hero!
Just read your article and thought that I would drop you a note. You did a great job dealing with a most timely topic. Happy to learn more about the Court. Thanks.
I just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for your coming out last week. You were just terrific on the panel! Thanks again.
You forever impacted our lives in a positive way and for that, I will be eternally grateful. Thanks again for everything. You're truly the best!!!!
I just wanted to express my thanks one more time. I truly enjoyed getting to know you, and so appreciate all of the support you offered – legal and otherwise. You were wonderful to work with during this difficult time. Thank you for everything!
Thank you just isn’t enough. I appreciate everything you did for me and my family. You brought hope, laughter, and spark back into our family when we needed it most. You became one of us and we a part of your team. I miss not seeing you in action as the entertainment and fight you bring to the courtroom is priceless!! I wish you all the best and much success. God Bless.
Thank you once again for your kind and expert guidance through the "legal maze" of the MMMA. You do your job more than well. I am the lucky beneficiary of your expertise. I am . . . Gratefully yours.
Dear Mary, Takura, and Team,
I wanted to take a minute and personally thank you for your OUTSTANDING job in defending my friend. What you and your team did for him and his family is beyond words. I have been with them from the beginning and to finally see someone who believed in them and work so hard to prove his innocence was just heartwarming. After I received the call that he was found not guilty I cried for 3 hours straight. As I type this letter to you I am beginning all over again, tears keep falling. I am not sure if you will ever know just how great you are. Once again, thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for saving my dear, dear friend. I am so grateful. You all do amazing work. You are all great people.
Mary and Takura,
A note to thank you for your thoughtfulness and to let you know it really meant a lot. This card sent to you today holds more appreciation than any words can say! Thank you ALL.
Thank you so much for your support through this insane accusation! Your expertise and kindness have been the rock making this situation bearable. I appreciate your honesty; you have been as clear with me as possible regarding what I should expect. Since I have no prior experience with this type of situation, merely having a general idea of the typical events really put my mind at ease, or at least more at ease. Keep up the positive attitude, and your great smile, as both are contagious! Thank you again for all of your support!
Without the efforts you guys put in to win my appeal and get me out of prison, I would've never had this opportunity. Keep up the fantastic work and I've never been more excited to have had you guys representing me. Thanks again!
Thank you for all of your help, Mary! It was highly appreciated.
It wouldn't be right if I didn't personally Thank You for your time and help and effort on our behalf. You have always been so helpful and kind with any and all of my questions or any correspondence we had. You guys have helped us through some tough times and we sincerely appreciate everything. Again, Thank You Kim
Words alone cannot describe the gratitude that I feel we owe your staff, your office, and especially you Mary. I just have to say it "Thank you". Your diligence, your intelligence, your professionalism, and your SMILE all together are like a bright light in a sometimes dark tunnel and because of that my son's future has hope and brightness and possibilities. I can't thank you enough, Mary!!
You’re a blessing to everyone you fight for in the courts. There’s not many attorneys like you or, of course, as good as you!
Both Ms. Chartier and [Assistant Attorney General] Mr. Pallas represented their clients in this court with integrity and professionalism. The court is indebted to Ms. Chartier for her diligence in unraveling a complicated set of facts surrounding petitioner's appeal as of right and presenting them in a cogent fashion. Ms. Chartier's intimate familiarity with the law and procedures surrounding Michigan criminal appeals was of invaluable assistance to the court. United States Magistrate Judge Joseph Scoville in Morris v Curtin, 1:07-cv-454, August 8, 2011.
Mary, We haven't met, but I had a chance to watch you in action in connection with your appeal. I thought your oral argument was one of the best appellate oral arguments I've seen in 31 years of practice in the federal and state courts. Not only did you know your subject matter cold, but you interacted so easily and effortlessly with the judges, picked up on their signals, answered their every question and engaged them in thoughtful dialogue. Wow. You are formidable. With kind regards.
Dear Mary, You were an honorable and effective advocate today – your client was very well served. You missing nothing! It's good to work with you!
Hello Mary, I attended the Animal Law Symposium recently. I have been meaning to write and thank you for coming to speak with us concerning updates on animal case law. I am inspired to see that there are selfless people doing good things with their lives and education.
Dear Mary, Congratulations on the excellent result in the appeal – great job! Thank you for your expertise in this matter.
Mary, You are a delight. I was so thankful you came up with the idea that turned the mediation. I look forward to working with you again. Thanks again.
Mary, Thanks again for making the trip to the University of Michigan last week and teaching us about the appellate courts.
Mary, You did a great job in your presentation yesterday! Your energy and enthusiasm was infectious.
Mary: Congratulations on the win! Great work! I read both of your briefs and was very impressed with your work. Congratulations on obtaining some semblance of justice for your client.
Mary, You are an awesome advocate. Great job and I am totally proud of you.
Mary: Great job on your presentation regarding medical marijuana. I really learned much!
Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to be a teacher at the Hillman Advocacy Program. I learned so much from you, and I really enjoyed it. Thank you again!
You were outstanding during oral argument. You crushed your opponent. Nice job.
You're an appellate rockstar.
Thank you so much! Your motion was quite masterful.
Mary, you ROCK!!!! Thank you so VERY much!! You're the best.
On your Supreme Court win - beyond amazing!!!! I want to be you if I grow up! Great job!!!!
CONGRATULATIONS on the Koon victory!!!! And thank you for the gift you’ve given all of us and our clients!!
Congratulations on the victory in People v Koon! It's a great victory for Michigan medical marijuana users! Huge victory. Excuse me while I pick up my jaw.
Congratulations on all of your achievements and your contributions back to the community.
Mary, Congratulations on being recognized as one of the top women lawyers in Michigan. So awesome!
You inspire us all. Congratulations!!!!!
Congratulations Mary! I received my copy of Lawyers Weekly this afternoon to see your name prominently displayed as one of this year's honorees for Women Lawyers of the Year. It is a prestigious award for which you are most deserving!
Your presence in the courtroom is among the "top best"!
The Koon opinion is an classic. When all is said and done, it will rank right up there with the likes of Cobbs and Milbourn.
Hi Takura, I was so pleased to see that you would be recognized at the Davis-Dunnings banquet – a well-deserved honor!
Mary, I’m at a loss for words on your victory. Bravo. Wow.
I heard about the award. That is amazing . . . you totally deserve it. Many Congratulations, I know you worked hard for it.
Mary, Congrats on being named on of Michigan’s top 25 women lawyers for 2013! A very well deserved honor!
From your many success stories, you are the superstar young barrister in the Chartier & Nyamfukudza Ass-Whooping Society.
Excellent win for us here in Michigan. Thank you Mary Chartier! Now I get to tell some prosecutors "I told you so".
Mary, Just a note to say "Thank You" for the awesome presentation yesterday! You provided a very important perspective as we continue to ensure compliance with the law as well as an overall standard of "fundamental fairness" for our students. Thank you!
Thank you for serving as faculty for Exploring Careers in the Law, the Michigan Supreme Court Learning Center’s moot court program for high school students. Your presentation about preparing for court struck exactly the right note. I particularly appreciated how you incorporated a variety of techniques – such as offering an example case, using small-group discussions, and allowing students to question you – to keep the participants engaged.
In the evaluations, students and their families offered glowing remarks about the program. One student said, “Being able to work with law students and attorneys throughout the week was the best part of the program.” A parent also commented, “Thank you to all those who invested their time and expertise to help our son have a great learning experience.”
Mary, I want to thank you so much again for everything that you have done for me with winning the prelim. Thanks again.
Mary, I've been in trouble before, and I've never had a lawyer fight for me like you did. Your nickname is the "pit bull in high heels" and it's true. Thank you so much!
Mary, I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate everything you have done for me in getting my case dismissed. Thank you so much.
Ms. Chartier, I want to thank you for representing me at the evidentiary hearing. You did a good job. You are a very good attorney and I am so blessed to have you helping me with my case Thanks again.
Mary, We can't thank you enough for the help you gave to our son. Your guidance was a tremendous help and calmed our nerves. Thank you.
Ms. Chartier, Thank you for your time and effort. It was much appreciated.
Dear Mary, I am writing to say thank you for all that you did for me in my case. Also thank you for getting me into counseling. I feel blessed to have this chance and am working hard and keeping positive about my situation. You have a beautiful smile and wonderful presence. It was a joy to have you come and see me. Also the things you said about staying off drugs and being around my kids really hit home. I hope you are doing well. Please know that there are people out there that appreciate your hard work and wonderful personality.
Mary, Bravo! Great job! Well Done! You have a made a difference through your hard work and wonderful personality and you are the first and only recipient of The Hummingbird Difference Award!

Mary, Just wanted to say thanks for your patience and understanding. Thank you for allowing us to fight through our situations. Thank you very much. Much love.
Mary, I would like to start by extending my appreciation for all the effort and time that you have expended on my behalf. You have proven to me that you do have my best interests at heart and are fighting most zealously to protect my constitutional rights. I must say that I am extremely impressed by your work and the effort that you and your office have put in on my case. Again I would like to extend my gratitude and thanks for all that you have and are doing for me in regards to my case.
Dear Ms. Chartier, I wanted to thank you again for your kindness in advising my brother and helping him make an informed decision. Thank you again!
Mary, I hear your nickname is the Pit Bull in high heels. If the hearing was a dog fight, I'd put my money on you. I really want to thank you for all you've done for me and my family. Mary, I'm very proud to have you as my lawyer as well I have all the confidence in the world in you. It's like you are a part of our family in a lawyer-ish way.

Again Mary, I'm proud to have you as my lawyer and have all the confidence in you. Okay. Mary I hope this finds you in the best of spirits. Take Care!
Mary, I cannot tell you how much I appreciated all of the hard work that you put into my case and your interest in it. Your brief was compelling and very fascinating for me to read. I could never have wished for a more excellent team, and you were an absolute delight to be with. You were the silver lining for me.
Mary, Thanks for all your work on our case. We really appreciated it. Thanks again.
Mary, Thank you for everything! Thanks for your thoughtfulness.
Mary, Thank you so much for all of your help! This was one of the most difficult times of my life, and I really appreciated your support (and for making me realize I'm not a bad person)!

Mary: I want to tell you how much you are truly appreciated! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Hello Mary Chartier, Thank you for all your wonderful assistance. I honestly feel that you gave me my life back at a time when all that seemed sane and logical was falling apart, and for that I am most grateful. It's been my pleasure meeting you. My best wishes to you and yours.
Mary: Thank you very much for all your work. We are very happy with the outcome and your guidance. Thanks again! Best Regards.
Mary, I just wanted to let you know my appreciation in your hard work for resolving my case. It truly means a lot to me that you care for my future in school. I can only wish the best for you as well. Thank you again!
Mary, I'm so glad that you all enjoyed the cookies I sent! I really mean it when I say that you were the reason why I didn't lose any sleep through the whole process. From the moment I talked to you on the phone I felt relaxed and at ease. I think it's because it is easy to recognize really great people at first sight. It was really refreshing getting to know you – you are such an amazing and interesting person! It is ironic that each time I went to court there was a part of me that was excited to see you! I hope we keep in touch, and hopefully I can update you with exciting news and experiences. Make sure to do the same! Thanks again for everything.
Dear Mary, Thank you! It really looks like you're the only that understands my side in this matter. Thank you again!
Mary – I just want to let you know how appreciative I am of everything you have done for me and all that you have yet to do. You are the best!
Mary – I never expected to meet such an amazing person under such circumstances (you!). Thanks for everything!
Mary, I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate you – what a blessing it was have you represent my son! And Fate! Anyway here's some "chocolate" for you on those stressful days – God Bless you and your family! Thanks again!
Mary, I know I say this all the time, but we appreciate you so much. You have went above and beyond all expectations. It is truly a blessing to finally have someone help us with this big fight. You are a wonderful person! I am so glad that I found you – because as you know – you are a beast – ha ha!
Dear Mary, Thanks for making this a better year than we would have had without you. It feels like we are on a better path with more to look forward to in the coming years. Some things we will never forget. Thank you.
Dear Mary, Thank you very much for assisting us in this matter. You did a great job. I will be contacting you soon regarding a celebration dinner.
Hi Mary, The judge seemed to be in automatic "motion denied" mode until you presented your arguments to the court. You were Brilliant!! You were highly prepared, quick on your feet, and spoke clearly. The consideration given by the court is a testament to your preparation, presentation, and professionalism.
Dear Mary, Thank you! And I mean it. You were always very attentive and I felt you would go to any length to fight this case and that says a lot when you were appointed. Thank God you were there. The judge respects you very much – that is very obvious. Again thank you. Next time we meet I hope it's different circumstances. P.S. I would highly recommend you!
Mary, Thanks again for all of your help. You truly have been excellent. I hope I never get in trouble again, but if I do, believe me when I say: I will be contacting you! Thanks again for being so nice and having a great attitude throughout the whole process, it means a lot. Until next time, take care, and Much Appreciation.
Dear Mary, I wanted to send you an email to thank you for everything you did for me. It meant alot to me how understanding you were of how scared my mother and I were. I mean in the best way possible I hope to never have to see you in court ever again. lol I never want to put my mom through that ever again. I know her and I both are stressed about all of this but you were a big help through it all. You stood up for me when I was freaking out in court. I don't think you knew how much that truly meant to me. I appreciate everything you did for me and I wish you the best. Well, I just wanted to thank you for everything; I can't even thank you enough.
Mary, You are the very best! Thank you so much for taking the time at the end of your long day to call me with a report. In addition to doing such a sterling job, you have also managed to put a smile on my face in the process-- almost surely worth as much and more than anything else to be gained. I was delighted by the favorable outcome of the hearing. Again, you are my hero! Thanks so much!
Mary, As usual, your writing is exceptional and wonderful.
Mary, Thanks you very much for taking on this case, we are very pleased with the outcome. It was even better than we anticipated. Our daughter does have a bright future and we are happy that it won't be affected by this issue.

Mr. Nyamfukudza, I hope all is well with you. I’m writing to personally express my gratitude for the noble and dedicated service you provided as my Attorney during my legal procedures. You performed brilliantly and exceeded my expectations, going above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks to your counsel, I was well informed before proceeding forward, and regardless of the possible outcome, I felt confident we were always on the same page. I realize the countless hours you spent researching and traveling to and fro to uncover vital evidence which led to the manifestations of the truth. You provided comfort during my tribulation by helping me understand we were fellows of the same struggle and you would endure until the end. In the end you provided the best possible outcome I could hope for. Thank you again, and you are the best dressed attorney I’ve ever had . . . . It was a pleasure working with you!
Hi Mary, We can’t say enough about Takura. God forbid that my son gets in any more trouble, but if he did he said he would call Takura. If you ever need anything, I'll be the first in line to help. My son is a new man without the threat of jail hanging over him and said he definitely learned his lesson. Thank you!
I just wanted to let you know, that I have all my property back from LPD...If anyone is in need of your services, you'll definately be recommended...thank you for your services!!
