Employment Matter
I have such a high level of confidence in Stewart as an attorney and a counselor. He is a tremendous listener which then puts him in a position that you feel he completely understands your situation and can help you make very sound decisions on actions or non actions that are completely in your best interest. He is also very good at explaining the practical side of what to expect during a legal review process.
