As a practicing lawyer and a member of the State Bar of Georgia for more than 37 years, it is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Alex Hoffspiegel. Prior to entering law school, Alex was an employee of our law firm for several summers as well as other times throughout the year as his collegiate schedule allowed. During his employ, Alex proved to be a very bright, articulate young man with a genuine understanding of the practice of law and how lawyers are able to use the law and help people who find themselves in unfortunate circumstances.

I have carefully followed Alex’s progress as he attended law school and became a lawyer. Recently, he has assisted me with some continuing education seminars for the Institute of Continued Legal Education, an affiliate of the State Bar of Georgia. Based on my observation over a number of years, I remain steadfast in my belief that Alex will make significant contributions to whatever activity he undertakes. Alex’s clients should be comfortable that they will be well represented in their legal matter.

In summary, I have no problem recommending Alex without reservation.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding my sincere recommendation of Alex Hoffspiegel.

Very truly yours,

M. Todd Westfall, Managing Partner
