  • Steven J. Weber

    I endorse this lawyer. I joined Paul on a panel with another attorney at the Solo Practitioner's Conference in Wisconsin Dells. It was readily apparent to me that Paul was very knowledgeable not only about liability issues in general but his knowledge of agriculture and the unique liability issues involved in farming.
