  • Jesse Leigh Reiblich

    Mr. Flagg is a very knowledgeable attorney with a great deal of experience in several practice areas. His prosecutorial experience elevates his criminal defense expertise beyond that of most attorneys. Likewise, his advanced LL.M. degree in environmental and land use law informs his practice in these areas. I endorse this lawyer.
