Very helpful and great advice .
Don was a great deal of help with a very difficult situation . He was able to resolve a number of issues for me with a minimum amount of fuss . Unlike other attorneys I've hired in the past , he was more interested in solving the problem than in dragging things out in order to bill more hours . The advice that he gave me was well thought out and very effective . I highly recommend Mr . Yates and would not hesitate to hire him again .
