“Dear Crystal,

I wanted to write and thank you for all of the work you did to help me achieve licensure with the North Carolina Board of Licensed Professional Counselors.  Working with you helped me tremendously – from giving me an idea of what my hearing would look like, to informing me what information and documentation was relevant to my situation and what was not, to preparing me to explain my story to the Board in a professional way that conveyed my dedication to the counseling profession.  I was able to face the Board with confidence and was able to present documentation related to my character in a well-organized manner.  I owe you and the Brocker Law Firm more than you know.  I appreciate your support and the fact that you care – that came through from the first time we met up until I finally learned I’d been licensed a few months later. You have no idea how helpful it was to have someone in my corner at a time when I was very stressed about the potentially life-changing decision the Board was making.  I cannot thank you enough!”

“Ms. Ottesen,

I hope you are doing well. I wanted to let you know that my hearing was successful. The NC Board of Law Examiners has approved my application and I will receive my license in 4-6 weeks.

The Board members said that they were impressed with my presentation. They also seemed to really appreciate the notebook. I am happy that I decided to seek your guidance and I am sure that your advice contributed to my success.”

I can’t thank you enough for all of your assistance with my petition to have the Board of Law Examiners unseal my Bar Exam results.  I’m grateful not only for your efficient and valuable advice with respect to my documentation, but also for your comforting support throughout this difficult and stressful process.  I am thrilled that we were able to bring about a positive result.

“Hi Brooke,

Just an update. I am doing well, and after attending the Ethics Course, I think I fully realized just how bad this could have been. So many times, as I listened to the other stories, I couldn’t help thinking “Thank God for Brooke!” or ” You should have had Brooke!”

I really don’t think I could have navigated all this without you. It has been a long several months of lost sleep, regret and worry. It’s not over yet, but I feel the end is in sight (finally).

Thank you so much for everything! I can’t say enough how fortunate I was to find you!

Thank you so much for all you have done.  This Bar Grievance seemed like a nightmare that just would not end.  You answered all my questions and were extremely patient and kept me informed on the matter.  You also gave me a realistic expectation and analysis rather than just the theoretical consequences. . . . I would highly recommend you to anyone.  Thanks again!”

I just want you to know how much I appreciate all that you have done in this matter. Your support was communicated through the response . . . and I cannot tell you how much that meant, especially after my first legal consultation was very negative and not open to writing a response, because he didn’t think it would do any good. I was so pleased to have found your name on the internet and even more pleased when we met, because your response to my plight really let me know that you would help fight this and avoid a hearing if at all possible. I am also glad you already had dealings with [the Board attorney], because I know that made the negotiations more open and cooperative. So, I truly do thank you for all your hard work and support – you did a great job!”
