I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Morales as a colleague for more than a decade. There are not many attorneys that I would vouch for however, Mr. Morales is a truly a diamond in the rough. He possesses an unmatched level of integrity, tremendous attention to detail, and an uncanny ability to explain complex legal principles to an average man on the street. I wholeheartedly endorse Mr. Morales' abilities in all areas of Corporate Law.
