  • Linda Marie Brown

    I attended law school with Utpal and continue to maintain professional contact through social media. Utpal has been a great resource. As an adjunct professor, Utpal has often provided me with his insight on legal issues that I was able to share with my class. His exceptional skill and knowledge is worth hiring. I have no doubt he would do a great job.
