Very Knowledgeable and efficient Attorney
William was very in tune with our case and explained everything in advance as well along the way as it progressed and kept us in the loop. We were very happy we did not have to go to trial and settled in a timely manner. Thanks Mr. Firth for making this difficult time an easier one for us.
