Very knowledgeable attorney
I have had the pleasure to work with attorney Calvin Blackburn in various capacities. Over the years he has been one of the most trustworthy, competent and knowledgeable attorneys I know. I have referred several complex cases to Calvin which he has routinely provided excellent legal advice. I would trust Calvin with my personal legal representation if need be.

Great Lawyer
He took my EEOC case and I got my compensation on the first day of mediation. More that I was expecting. I will highly recommend his services to anyone that is looking for a great trustworthy lawyer.

Superior performance and commitment to altruism
Attorney Blackburn, III provided superior service when he handled my case last year. He ensured that I understood the purpose of every strategy that he utilized. He provided timely responses to my questions and was forthright and effective in reaching a resolution.

Great guy but expensive
My only problem was that is too expensive for someone who lost her job around Christmas time and has been struggling ever since.
