    William’s comment: “Curious about this? I screen prospective clients looking for those who appreciate what can be achieved by the proper application of legal talent and old fashioned hard work to their problems. On occasion (once in 36 years) someone will get me to take on the impossible problem for cheap or free - when things don't go their way they blame the lawyer. If you are one of those please go elsewhere. All others are welcomed with open arms, kindness and a desire to help you without judging you.”
