Outstanding lawyer.
I have used Mr. Artrip for a few different legal matters/issues/questions and have been totally satisfied with the service I received. Mr. Artrip is very knowledgeable and professional, but approachable, lawyer. He is passionate about his job and was compassionate of my needs. He took the time to thoroughly answer any questions and actually listens to any concerns I may have had. He answered messages and returned calls expeditiously. I could tell he definitely had my best interest in mind. He was well prepared and worked hard to ensure I was satisfied. I would not hesitate to recommend him or to go to him, or his team, for most of my legal needs.
