Best Attorney in town
When I came to Will Grafton I was lost on how to handle my situation. He had me come on for a meeting to go over things and calmed me down. I had amazing support each step of the way and even though I was flipping out, Will Grafton was there to calm me down. I have never met such a complete attorney. I thought I would not be able to get everything for him, but as he went through some of my documents, he already knew what I was missing and provided information on where to get the missing information. I highly recommend William Graft and The Grafton Firm for any and all of your legal needs.

Absolute Professional!
Mr. Grafton handled my bankruptcy case with absolute professionalism. He and his staff kept me up to date every step of the way and answered all my questions promptly. I certainly hope I won't ever require his services, in that particular field at least, ever again, but he will be the first person I call if I do.
