OUTSTANDING LAWYER!
Both My. Legler and Mr. Flynn were outstanding gentlemen and attorneys. Rare breed indeed! They really care about the client and keep their word. I'd HIGHLY recommend them both.

Honest + Trustworthy
My experience with Mr. Legler was great. Both Mr. Legler and his partner, Mr. Flynn were very straight forward and honest with me. Mr. Legler's staff & I had an excellent relationship, I could call and talk to my Mr. Legler with no trouble getting through. When I needed something he was more than understanding and helpful. I would def. recommend Mr. Legler to any of my friends and family.
