Great Legal Help Leads to Successful Outcome
I consider myself quite fortunate in having found Henry Saurborn and his firm when I was in dire need of an excellent law firm to handle my intricate case. I found him to be through, detail oriented, and an excellent communicator . When the case finally led to arbitration, after working together for over a year at that point, watching both Henry and his partner during the depositions and final Arbitration, was like watching a " well oiled machine in action" ...and in fact they won the case. I even overheard the Arbitrator telling them that they did an excellent job in presenting my case. We are still involved together on this case as there are many facets to it. It has been very difficult at times and stressful, but knowing that Henry and his team are there to support me and fight for my rights is the one shinning light in a rather dark landscape..which is starting to get brighter.
