    I endorse this lawyer.I have had the privilege to refer work to Dean on civil and commercial litigation. He is simply amazing, thinks outside the box and get the job done. I was happy with the results on a case where Dean personally assisted me. He does provide personal attention and detail to the case he is working on. I highly recommend him.
