Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I had a multi-year litigated matter with Mr. Navagh that entailed elements of business, probate and contract law. The matter was extremely complex and our clients were often emotional and Mr. Navagh remained professional and ethical throughout the process. If not for his efforts, the matter may never have gotten resolved. I am aware of his reputation within the local community and have only heard positive references to him from others. I have no hesitation or reservation in recommending Jim as an attorney."
