Very Helpful
Ron, and all the associates were very helpful, and kept me informed the whole time was case was being worked on. If I had any questions they would be answered quickly. I'm very with the results of the case, and would definitely recommend them to friends, and family.

Ronald B. Cox
I was very fortunate to have been introduced to Ron Cox when I needed an attorney several years ago to handle an environmental lawsuit which was very satisfactorily settled in our favor and resulted in the elimination of the problem. We maintained constant contact during the pretrial procedures and I was always informed of every new detail that might affect our efforts. I would use Ron again as my attorney in any future legal action.

Mr. Cox is trust worthy and responsive. When I needed to reach Mr. Cox, he was accessible. Mr. Cox negotiated favorable results for us. If you are looking for someone who is competent and not afraid to go to trial, retain Mr. Cox.
