Dear Mr. Nathans, I hope this email finds you well. You probably won’t
remember me off hand, but you represented me years ago for charges that
I brought upon myself. It was 1987, when I was accused of Bank Robbery
and several other state robberies. I remember the experience very well.
Even after you got the (federal) charges dropped against me you helped
me get my state charges dropped in Prince George’s County. What
a mess I was in. But, in short, I’m writing you to say “thank
you” and to let you know that you were a real blessing to me. I
want you to know that I almost immediately made changes in my life to
be a positive being in the lives of others. I want you to know that I
actually prayed for an Angel to come to my aid, because I was really in
a mess. I really had no idea that I had brought these things onto myself.
I just thought the world was against me and I was just going to do what
I could to survive. I believe that you saw something in me that was good,
and that you did what you could to help me. This on top of being "really
good" at what you did for a living. I followed you years later when
the internet came about to see how you were doing and what you were doing.
I had no idea that you were THIS good. I prayed, and I was truly sent
the best. I am so thankful to this day; and you need to know that you
were truly and still an Angel sent to me. I really believe this. I tell
my girlfriend now, who knows my whole story, that I wouldn't be here
today if not for you and what you did for me. I am so thankful!!!
A few years ago, someone gave me the book, "The Secret". This
had me looking back on all the various things that I had been through
in my life. I realized that everything that had happened and was happening
to me in my life, I was responsible for. I totally made another switch
at that point. And now only create the best experiences in my life. My
family is healthy, I now live in (deleted) , have an awesome job in sales,
have a beautiful and successful girlfriend and get to do what I like most.
That would be sales and traveling. In the recent past, I've been able
to travel to Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Medellin Colombia, numerous parts
of Mexico, Dubai, Vancouver and other parts of Canada and most recently,
Singapore and the Philippines. I've also been to 37 out of the 50
U.S. states, and I say all of this because, had it not been for you, I
wouldn't have any of these experiences nor be able to help others
and spread the word of being responsible for your own thoughts, words
and actions. So, to summarize, thank you so much Mr. Nathans. I am privileged
to have gotten to know you and blessed to have you come into my life when
you did. I will forever know that I am here being a productive part of
society due to you and your gift. I've brought you up to my girlfriend
a few times and she kept prodding me to do what I've been saying I
would do for some time now, and that was to reach out to you. But time
kept moving on me. On a side note, my girlfriend is a very successful
criminal attorney here in (deleted). Go figure, huh. Life is good!
