Through a long, over two years, litigation, the Claytons have been accomodating to our health problems while pressing our case to a beneficial conclusion with as ilttle trama. as was possible,
The discovery process was difficult because my mother, the principal litigant, has memory problems, so a good deal of research was required to piece together the history of the case. We found the Claytons (Andrew and Jessica) to be patient, understanding, and very responsive to our needs.

Drew is analytical, decisive and conclusive and has superb communications skills.
He possesses the ability to understand each and every situation and recommend the best possible solution.
I have worked with Drew on many different corporate matters that were resolved formidably in our favor. If it were not for Drew the corporation and its owners would have been in a much less favorable monetary position.
I would highly recommend him to any corporation or individual.
