    This lawyer not only has the skill in the courtroom, but has the personality to make even the other side like him. I was impressed with the insight brought to bear in the matters I consulted on with this attorney's firm. With strict attention to detail and a refined sense of presentation, any client would feel as if they had this man's total attention. Simply, I was refreshed to see another attorney that made me want to practice better law.
