Dear Attorney Nagel,
I'm sending this email just to say thanks again for your help this summer and I truly appreciate all you did. I'm happy to say that I'm currently in the middle of the application process for several graduate schools and that my background check has come back absolutely free of anything and this is a big relief for me.
Sincerely, (client name withheld)
