This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Thank You, very helpful!
A very knowledgeable attorney, someone that would be an asset on your side in a court room. Thank you, your answer was very understandable for us that don't really understand law, descriptive, & included an option to resolve my issue. I don't know how many times I have had a consultation with an attorney and was just as confused when I left as when I got There.
