Very knowledgeable. Can be hard to contact but that seems to be the norm.
As is good practice when hiring any attorney, make sure you clearly establish expectations for the case, fees and communication.
Discuss how often you'll be updated and how quickly you can expect a response.

Mr. Talbert is an incredible lawyer who sincerely cares about his clients. His knowledge of the law coupled with his trial skills make him one of the best defense attorneys I've met. I endorse this lawyer without reservation.
