LLC process
Josh was my saving grace during my LLC Filing. It was something I hated to think about doing , because I feared the paperwork process. Josh took it and made it seem like the easiest thing in the world to do. I highly reccomend Josh to anyone looking for an Attorney who gets things done and done right.

Best ever
Mr Bannister was assigned to defend me in a custody case started by my ex-wife. The last time I dealt with a public defender I never spoke to or met the person until minutes before the trial. Mr Bannister called and texted me the day he was assigned. We had several conversations and met with me early on the morning of the hearing. Very professional and very caring about my case. Things went fantastic in court that morning and we were victorious. I highly recommend Mr Bannister and would definitely use his services again ( though I truly hope I never need to )
