Attorney Endorsements

6 total 

  • Kevin W Conner

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I first met Ron 7 years ago when he was prosecuting cases I was defending. My respect grew for him because of his professionalism and skill level which he brought to the job. We had numerous cases together in which we disagreed and fought hard for our respective clients. Those battles gave me insight into the knowledgeable and skillful attorney that Ron is. Simply put, if I had a friend or family member that needed the assistance of a criminal defense attorney, I would wholeheartedly recommend Ron.
