    I've worked with Paul in cases both on the same side and as an opponent going on to 15 years now, and I've referred out clients to him when there was a conflict. He's smart, fair, efficient, and honest. I have found him to cut to the chase, and work towards the right/best/ most workable outcome that can be crafted with the elements a case presents.
