First let me say that I am 69 years old, mostly retired business man and during my business career I had a reasonable amount of experience with attorneys. In point of fact at one time, we were involved in an anti-trust action which spread over 6 years. That was one contact with a large law firm, which did an outstanding job for us.

Mr. Flashman was referred to us by another firm. We needed an attorney to draw up referendum petitions for a citizens group which I headed up. It was essential that this be done quickly and correctly. He within a few days had the material to us. During this time he literally gave us an education on referendums, the pitfalls and possibilities to make sure we could gather the necessary signatures.

That we were successful was in no small measure due to his expertise. He along the way was able to give us counsel on environmental issues and other challenges. He has had a lot of experience with the referendum process, and it was so helpful.

At the end of this successful process, we elected to enter into negotiations and eventually reached an compromise agreement with the developer. Mr. Flashman became our attorney in drawing up the legal document for this agreement.

All along the way with was a period of about 8 months, he was on a very timely basis able to give us excellent advice.

I could not give a higher recommendation to anyone than what I offer for Mr. Flashman. On top of all of this, he fees were very reasonable, which for a citizens group always presents a problem since funds are very limited.

(my choice of type of case chosen below is because you don't have a category that really fits what he did for us )
