  • William Julian Smith

    I recently worked with Mr. Selby on an extremely time-intensive employment law matter. Not only was Mr. Selby extremely efficient, but his work product was of the highest quality -- both with regard to presentation and legal substance. I highly recommend Mr. Selby's work.
