Excellent Employment Attorney
He handled 2 of my cases and was very responsive. He ALWAYS returned my phone calls, messages and answered every question that I had. He is not one of those lawyers that has his assistant do all the talking for him. If you have any type of question in your mind about your pay or your employer not paying you correctly, he is the lawyer you should hire. He is very fair and very professional.
