I've given many gifts to professionals who did a good job, but the one that stands out is one where I wrote a letter to the local newspaper extolling the man and his staff's virtues.
It was 20 years ago and they still treat me like a queen whenever I go there, a faded, yellowed copy of that letter attached to the file. The professional took me aside and said that HE (the professional) does get accolades from grateful people, but that I WAS THE ONLY ONE TO INCLUDE THEIR STAFF!
He said they were thrilled as they were usually left out, though the office couldn't function without them. Indeed, he was very proud of the caliber of employees he hired. Note that unhappy employees often mean it's a bad boss!
So, if you write anything, I suspect the lawyer would ALSO appreciate a word about her staff, as would the employees. A good boss would consider it a reflection on herself.
