  • Roy Lee Comer

    I co-chaired a complex business litigation matter with Ivan, and he was tenacious with the details of discovery and determining the relationships between the various entities. His hard work and patient dealing with the client contributed to my better understanding of the facts and the eventual very beneficial settlement for the client. He is very experienced in debt collection matters, but his skills do not end there. I endorse this lawyer.
