    Byron was one of my opposing attorneys on a complex case a couple of years ago, and I was very impressed: he is one of the most dedicated, passionate lawyers I have ever encountered. A superb advocate, he has an intuitive understanding of the issues and a high level of attention to detail. Highly recommended!
