A: I'm glad that you had a good experience with a lawyer and paralegal who went above and beyond to help you.

I would be careful about giving anything of significant monetary value to your attorney. There are some rules regarding gifts from clients, and you don't want to get your attorney in trouble. Probably the best thing you can do is leave a positive review for them on different websites like Yelp, Avvo, and Google.

With that said, a small gift to a lawyer is generally OK as long as the lawyer is not asking for it
