  • Mysti Dawn Neal Murphy

    I endorse this lawyer. I referred a CPS case to Mr. Powers. He proved the doctor misdiagnosed the child's impairments as child abuse. The CPS case was dropped.

  • Meagan Lee Block

    Mr. Powers is an excellent criminal defense attorney. His experience helps him guide his clients very effectively. You can tell that he truly cares about the outcomes of his cases, and vigorously seeks the best result for them. I like to work with Mr. Powers on cases because he is careful to consider the family law and immigration law consequences for his clients.
