The Honorable Justice Michael A. Wolff
Chief Judge, Supreme Court of Missouri
"I have been most impressed with the work that you and the judges have done to improve the lives of your graduates.   From their enthusiastic reports, I discern that your students have found in your program a source of personal strength, self-awareness and self-control that has had the remarkable effect of helping them to keep themselves out of the criminal justice system.   They and you [Farrokh and Ruffina Anklesaria] are to be congratulated for the life changes that have been effected.
