  • Meliha Pérez Halpern

    Louis is a skilled litigator who shows confidence. We worked together on the litigation of a case. He was able to zone in on the key issues on the case and come up with strategies that ultimately helped get a fair settlement offer to resolve the case. It was a pleasure to work with Louis and I look forward to the opportunity to work with him again.
