    Mr. Locke and I have worked opposite eachother on multiple Criminal and Civil matters. Mr. Locke has always been very professional and prepared to negotiate when he shows up for court appearances. He also has never been afraid to move forward to trial if negotiations didn't resolve the matter. I endorse this lawyer.
