Tis the season of thanks. Modica Law Firm and I have MANY reasons to be thankful. Before I explain why, here are my two favorite quotes about appreciation (a close relative of thankful):
“We are so often caught up in our destination that we forget to appreciate the journey, especially the goodness of the people we meet on the way. Appreciation is a wonderful feeling, don’t overlook it.”
“Appreciation is like an insurance policy. It has to be renewed every now and then.”
We are blessed by MANY good people who are part of our daily journey. Thanksgiving is an excellent opportunity to renew our appreciation for them. Here are ten of them:
Thanks to Labor News readers. We don’t communicate often, however, I feel your love. I sincerely hope that you read these columns and that they are helpful.
Thanks to Labor News editor Matt Hynes and his staff. You are an important voice for labor in Rochester. I am glad to support you as an advertiser. I thank you for the opportunity to write this column and share our expertise.
Thanks to Union leaders who trust us to serve their members. For more than 23 years, union leaders have trusted Modica Law Firm to serve people they care about deeply—their union brothers and sisters. They hold us to a very high standard. They want us to treat their union brothers and sisters like they are our siblings. We have done that consistently since we opened our doors on November 1, 1995.
Thanks to Union Members who trust us to represent them. We are nothing without you. My family, and the families of all on our team, owe you a great debt of gratitude for allowing us to serve you. We have fed our families and educated our children because of your labor and because you trusted us to help you.
Thanks to our team at Modica Law Firm. We are blessed with a compassionate, empathetic, dedicated and a highly professional team who believes in the Golden Rule (we treat our clients like we would want to be treated). We are thrilled each time we lessen the burden of a union member troubled by an accident, injury, illness or employment problem.
Thanks to the family members of the Modica Law Firm team. Your loved ones work very hard. Thank you for supporting them in this important work.
Thanks to Union leaders who are considering recommending us to their members. Talk to your fellow union leaders about us. They will tell you that they refer union members to us because they know that they will be served professionally and honestly.
Thanks to our Judges. The men and women who decide Workers’ Compensation, Social Security Disability, personal injury and employment cases are honest, work hard and do their best to “get it right.” I wish that they agreed with us 100% of the time, however, I respect them greatly.
Thanks to lawyers on the other side of our cases. We know you have a job to do. Thank you for understanding that we too have a job to do. Thank you respecting us and our clients. Thanks too for referring folks to us that you cannot serve.
Thanks to my family and Brad Kammholz. I am blessed to have a wonderful wife and daughter who do more for me than I can express. My wife Lorrie runs the “day to day” operations of Modica Law Firm, freeing me up to practice law. My close friend and colleague (Brad Kammholz) partners with us in personal injury cases and has produced tremendous results for our clients. I am proud to work with him.
Take a moment to appreciate the many blessings in your life. I hope that you are as fortunate as me.
