Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Matthew Bradley Rosenthal

    I endorse this lawyer. I needed assistance for a client of mine on a legal matter so I reached out to him and even though he was not able to directly solve my problem, he was still willing to connect with an attorney who could help me. He is a collegial attorney who is easy to work with. I certainly endorse him.
