Wonderful experience.
I would defintely recommend hiring, Mr. Uris, as an attorny as he is very knowledgable and expert about his field and he knows very well what he is doing. Mr. Uris was able to successfully handle the case of a close family member and he got us through the whole process of the case in the safest way we can ever hope for. With his knowledge and experience, mr. Uris was able to achieve what was considered impossible to get for this case and the whole matter ended as if it never happened due to his effort. He was always there to answer our questions regarding the case, I consider my family member a lucky person for hiring Mr. Uris as his attorny. Highly recommend Mr. Uris as your attorney for criminal cases!!!!
