    I have had the pleasure of working with Raymond which undoubtedly revealed to me how diligent he is in pursuit of success for his client and coupled with his trial skills, results in one of the best trial attorneys in central Alabama.

  • Joseph C Kreps

    I have worked on the opposite side of many cases with Ray over the last few years. Ray has always been very well-prepared, knows the law well and is a zealous advocate for his client. He is honest and hard-working and is a man of his word. Ray has my endorsement.
