Excellent Lawyer…1982 Cricklewood, Fogelsville…
I’m no Leonard Roy Boyer, but I’m doing ok. I only had to file bankruptcy one time. It was cheap though, I did it myself. I sue people for debts I don’t even know if they created or not. I will be the first one to try and cheat whoever I can using any slimy tactic to try and win in court, because my evidence is usually lacking and I don’t want to go to trial. I just pray that one day I don’t get in the car and turn it on, and…end of story.

My Mom had lawyer and hung up phone on us
My mom had him for a lawyer and was very rude when asked a question and gave attitude and then hung up the phone on us because he couldn’t answer the question. Very rude don’t use him at all unless you want to get hung up on.

Very disappointed
The worst lawyer in the state of Pa. He lied to me. I hired him because he said he can get my drivers license back and now we’re about to go into our hearing and he’s telling me I will not get my drivers license back weights two weeks before my scheduled hearing after my hearing has been postponed five times this lawyer does not do his job
