Terrific Attorney
I've known J.R. for several years, and he's always impressed me. He's sharp, focused, and very thorough. He couples this with an impressive amount of care for and attention to his client's needs. He's a great lawyer, and a strong advocate for his clients. Whoever gets J.R. is in good hands.

Successful Resolution
JR reached out on a forum with the answer to some questions I had regarding my legal issue about a non-paying client and was very patient and detailed in his responses. I decided to retain him and he was able to arrive at a settlement quickly - it was a pleasure working with him and I can recommend his services to anyone looking for trustworthy and competent legal counsel.

Great with contract negotiation
I was in a serious jam when J.R. came to the rescue. He is a highly skilled lawyer and I can honestly recommend him to anyone.
