Very Caring, concerned,and looking out for his Clients!
Paul is ALWAYS available to talk with his clients. When I call him with questions or concerns he always stops to talk and answer all for me. His level of knowledge of the law is apparent through his actions and his answers to me. I would not have been able to wade through my legal issues without him!
