    Preston and I worked together on a matter for a mutual client. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding foreclosure defense and I enjoyed the opportunity to work with him on this matter. His knowledge and level of professionalism are qualities that should provide any client comfort.

  • Eric J. Friday

    I have referred cases to Mr. Oughton when they involved real estate issues outside my practice and regularly consult with Mr. Oughton regarding real estate issues in cases in my practice area. I have found Mr. Oughton's knowledge and skill as an attorney very helpful in my own practice, and would recommend him to others
