  • Judd Roy Bean II

    Andrew Diaz is not only a top-class litigator and legal writer, but also deeply revered for his knack of being an aggressive yet compassionate attorney. He so well-versed on the law, making him a tremendous asset to any client (eminent domain, inverse condemnation, property rights, property tax appeals, mortgage law, and more) who would hire him. Attorney Diaz is one of those rare attorneys blessed with the combination of common sense, brave empathy, and dedication to his craft. It is my pleasure and honor to endorse this attorney, not simply for his legal work and skills as an advocate, but for his integrity as a man. Look no further than Attorney Andrew Diaz!
