Virtue in practice
Mr. Souther worked passionately and tirelessly to find an appropriate resolution to my case. He answered my phone calls and emails promptly. Mr. Souther made certain I was informed of and prepared for the progression of my case and always made me feel as though my well-being (and my family's) was of utmost importance to him.
