"I wanted to tell you again that yesterday's result was outstanding. Your strategy of trying this case against Burnetti was spot on, and the application of the strategy was flawless. A net zero verdict on a clear liability case, starting at $180k in specials in retrospect is incredible. I have to say that yesterday would have to be the high point of my litigation part of my job. I told you I have sat through at least 12 trials at least, and have had a large number of good results. Given the facts of this case yours was phenomenal, In all other cases, I tried in the past we had something positive to work with. This one was just the Scarborough clinic on trial lawyering.

It was a pleasure to watch it."

Cycling has been one of my joys since the training wheels came off and Mom and Dad found me the banana seat bike that my brother and I destroyed jumping plywood ramps. I was blessed to be involved in biathlon and road riding throughout my college and law school days. The mountain bike bug bit me in law school which resulted in a short stent at mountain bike racing as well as Xterra events. Over the years cycling has been a mainstay in my life whether road riding or mountain biking in North Carolina, doing a local century or using cycling as a fundraising venture.
