“[To the State Bar President]
I just wanted to drop you this note and thank the State Bar for the services of Deanna Brocker who mans the telephone to assist attorneys with ethical questions and issues.  Over the years, I have had the good fortune to review ethical issues with Deanna on occasion.  I believe this is an extremely valuable service to attorneys.  I have always found Deanna is not only knowledgeable, but also lends an understanding ear to the attorney’s situation.  I just wanted to thank the State Bar for this very worthwhile service and tell you how helpful Ms. Brocker has been to me in several situations over the years.”

“Mr. Brocker assisted me via a phone consultation regarding a summons to appear before an informal hearing panel of the NCBLE. I just wanted to let him know that I appreciated his advice, and the hearing went exceedingly well.  I received confirmation that I have been approved in regards to all matters referred to at the hearing and received my bar exam admission ticket.  Thank you for likely some of the best (or at least most timely) [money for consultation] I have spent in law school thus far.”
