    I am always happy when my path crosses with Vic. I absolutely agree with the wonderful comments from other attorneys and clients. I can only add one other thing: he's who I would call if my friends or family needed a lawyer.

  • William Raymond Kugelman

    I endorse this lawyer. Vic is a knowledgeable and skilled attorney who presented practical solutions to a contentious litigated matter. He is dedicated to his clients, aggressive where necessary, and has my respect as an attorney and, more importantly, as an individual.
