    I had the pleasure of meeting Liam as opposing counsel on a case involving a conflict between boat owners down on the coast. I found Liam not only very thorough in his representation of his client, but also very well versed in the law. Even though we were on opposit sides of the case, I truly enjoyed working with him toward a resolution. I would recommend Liam to anyone. He will take very good care of you.
