    Relentless. That's the way to describe Neil Fox. Neil will scrutinize every last detail in a case, finding evidence that nobody else even knew existed. He will then take that evidence and use it to his client's advantage. Neil is the kind of never-quit lawyer that other lawyers can't help but admire. I would recommend family and friends to use him if they needed help.
