  • Evan Ephraim Zelig

    Victor is a stellar attorney! He puts everything he has into fighting for his clients. We worked together on a case defending two innocent men and Victor never backed down until both of our clients were out of jail and free. Victor is a fantastic attorney and I endorse him wholeheartedly.
