Will
I'm out of Columbia, SC and the PMC firm came highly rated from the top Cola. firm. Virginia is under an attorney who was a judge in the local court system. Virginia knows everyone in the local system and all of the local attorneys. She represented my family in a probate case and I could not speak more highly of her work. She or Courtney were always extremely quick to communicate any issue. The case had a good outcome thanks to their diligence. And when it was over more than a year later, PMC actually sent me a considerable refund on the retainer paid, which absolutely amazed me...

Great Attorney to have by my side!
All I can say is what a great experience... from the initial phone call all the way to document completion. Ms. Spencer gave me such a great peace of mind knowing that I was in good hands. She was able to take my requests and deliver more than I could have expected! Being a widowed single father... peace of mind is worth so very much. What a fantastic attorney and amazing firm to have in my corner!!!
