Mr. Poole gives lawyers a good (rather) a GREAT name...
We hired Todd Poole to assist us with dealing with an unsavory developer who had breached contract multiple times on the completion and delivery of our new home. Mr. Poole was not only honest and fair, he was also extremely knowledgeable and sympathetic. What a fantastic counsel for a family who was already at wits’ end with a builder who was more than willing to lie and string us along ad infinitum. I would rehire Mr. Poole without hesitation should I ever require legal counsel in the future. I would advise others in search of a great lawyer to do the same.

why you should engage Todd poole
Todd won a 400k judgement for me with less than 30 days to prepare. in another case he defended me against a bank with the result being the bank officer resigned and a third party agreed to pay me a significant settlement.

Dedicated, Competent, Hard-working
For many years now, Todd Poole has represented our credit union primarily in matters relating to debt collection. Mr. Poole works especially hard to understand the matter prior to taking action, and is able to weigh the cost of legal action versus the likelihood of collection. His focus on relationship building and being seen as an extension of the service our credit union provides, is a real benefit. I highly recommend Todd Poole and his firm for their service delivery and expertise.
