    I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Cleckner while we were both assistant state attorneys for the 18th Judicial Circuit. While there, I had the chance to observe firsthand Mr. Cleckner's tremendous work ethic and meticulous attention to detail. I can say in all honesty that no one at the state attorney's office worked harder. Mr. Cleckner will give your case the attention it deserves and he will fight for you to the fullest extent possible. I enthusiastically endorse William "Bill" Cleckner for your legal needs.
