Solid Legal Professional—Strongly Recommend
Atty. Anstead helped me during an exceptionally difficult time. His willingness to hear my situation, review the material diligently and thoroughly, ask questions that mattered and gave him the full understanding of what he was defending against, really gave me the confidence that I was being taken care of. His initial consultation was fair and his retainer was extremely reasonable. Additionally, he recommended me to a PI team that thoroughly chased facts and ultimately led to my case being dismissed and the truth saving the day. I really can’t say how positive of an experience I had and how strongly I recommend Atty. Anstead, Ms. Adkins, and the their Investigative Team’s counsel and support when you’re facing daunting allegations. If you’re reading this—best of luck on your case, but if criminal charges are what you’re facing than look no further and retain Atty. Anstead now.
