Letter to Insurance Company General Counsel:
Recently [our restaurant franchise] was defended by Mr. Randall
Mead of Springfield, Illinois against a personal injury that occurred
in 1993 on our property. I personally observed the trial for two
and one half days, which was the first time I had witnessed a jury
trial. I have also been involved with retaining outside counsel
with I was employed with a major Class I railroad.
The professionalism and effectiveness of Mr. Mead's performance
needs to be brought to your attention. In some cases, I have seen
outside counsel fail to defend a corporation effectively because
the fees would be paid regardless. In this case, I was encouraged
by the justice system by observing Mr. Mead won this trial simply
due to hard work and preparedness. The difference between the plaintiff
and defense was overwhelming, which is obviously why [we] prevailed.

I wanted to thank you for the very thorough and very competent
job you did on the case. It was very reassuring to me to be kept
posted in the manner you did. I always knew the status of the case
and that helped a lot. Your several letters to keep me updated were
most appreciated. Thanks too for you warm friendly manner when we
first spoke on the phone about this case. I appreciated your reassurance.
Since I had never been involved in anything like this, I was very
uneasy but your professionalism was a great assist.
Letter to Insurance Company, after winning summary judgment:
I am writing to show my appreciation for the way my claim was handled

attorney, Randy Mead, both handled the case in a very professional
and knowledgeable manner. There was never anytime during the two
year duration of the case that I had any question that everything
was being done to win this case.

Letter from Physician to his insurer following victory at trial:
Mr. Mead's handling of my defense during the trial was exemplary.
. . . The plaintiff's expert was more broad in his criticisms at
the trial than he had been at the time of the discovery deposition.
Mr. Mead in his cross-examination managed to get the radiologist
to retract that additional criticism. It would have been damaging
to my case. . . . I have been impressed with the unfailing zeal
shown by Mr. Mead throughout the entire ordeal of this case. The
incredible amount of effort throughout the many depositions and
legal maneuvers was impressive to me.
