I am writing this to praise  the wonderful work Ms Tombroff did. I appreciate the pofessionalism and through her personality and with her knowledge she was able to create a climate of trust that allowed (name) to pass over embarrassment and shame to open up and share past traumatic experiences and abused vistim's memories. During court procedure Ms Tombroff was so articulate and clear in her satement that Judge Mc Gillin wrote that Ms Tombroff's opinion was absolutely convincing. I want to express my gratitude ..my thanks go especially to Ms Tombroff who has been instrumental in saving (name's) life.
