  • Jennifer L Davis

    Integrity and hard work are the first two things that come to mind when I think of Mr. Oberdorfer. From what I have observed, he treats his clients with respect and fights hard on their behalf. He not only knows the law, but also has a compassion for his clients that goes beyond the billable hour.
