    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Rex for over a decade both professionally and personally. All my clients with bankruptcy needs I refer to him. Rex is a professional. He is competent and courteous. He cares about his clients and his community. Rex is a leader in the South Florida community having directed numerous non-profits and charities. He served as the President of the Junior Orange Bowl Committee and before that on many of its committees. Go to him with confidence.
