Business law case
Gary was a true asset to my business this year as we needed him for a business law suit to protect our business. Gary and his team fought for our rights and won on all accounts. I would recommend him to all of my business friends if the need ever arises. He was able to take stress off of me so that I could stay focused on my business, and that was priceless! Gary and his team are top notch, highly recommend!

Thank You!
I am the chairperson of an organization that needed some legal advice. Gary was able to break our issue into 3 distinct problems and systematically worked to solve each. He worked tirelessly to make sure we were able to have our annual convention, even working during vacation and handling our overnighted documents immediately to make sure we got paperwork submitted as quickly as possible. Throughout, he was only a phone call away for any questions we had, and he followed up to make sure everything is still going smoothly.
