    I endorse this lawyer. I defended a Human rights claim brought by Ross on behalf of a client of his who was a former employee of my client. Ross did an excellent job for his client and was very professional. We fought only about the issues that were truly in dispute but in a civil and courteous way. In fact, I have referred potential clients to Ross and have sought his guidance on potential claims I was pursuing.
