  • Ryan Andrew Kalamaya

    I endorse this lawyer. Hannibal contacted me regarding in connection with the domestication of a Colorado support order. He was ultimately successful in convincing the Georgia court to set aside the judgment on technical grounds. He was thorough and accessible throughout the time we worked together. He knew the issues and always had the best interests of his client in mind.
