    I wholeheartedly endorse Grey Gardner. He is well respected and has a reputation for hard work and dedication. He is one of the few private lawyers that I know who represents defendants in parole matters before the US Parole Commission and gets good results. I have seen his work in court in trial and been very impressed.
