Saving a little girl’s life

Saving a little girl’s life

Sometimes as a divorce lawyer, as I have been for over 30 years, it is easy to forget the power that I and other lawyers have to change people’s lives – hopefully for the better.  Today I received a card from an old client.  On the front of the card was a diamond with differing coloured light going in every direction and the words “shine bright”.  
Inside the card contained a photograph of a young girl, my client’s granddaughter, joyfully running.  My client wrote these words in the card, which moved me to tears of joy, for my actionsthat had helped her and her granddaughter:
            “Dear Stephen,
            I apologise for the long wait in getting this photo of [my granddaughter] to you but I wanted to make sure it was a photo that signified her freedom from harm and her love of life.  I think this one says it all.  Thanks to you and your amazing team, she will learn to love and respect life.
            Thank you, once again, for saving her life.
            Fond regards”
