Keith NEVER left any stone unturned when he handled our case. He was bold like a lion, aggressive like a tiger. One day, when he had to meet a dateline, he drove over 300 miles round trip so that the filling could be done. On another occasion he risked arrest to make sure that our voice could be heard. Our case needed multiple appeals and he went through them without bothering us with the details. We needed somebody to speak for us and he more than accomplished that for us. He was a good listener whose ultimate goal was to do what we wanted. His co-counsel, Sarah, despite the fact that she was a young female, apparently learned well from him because she was as aggressive, effective and efficient as he was. We totally appreciated and their well organized and well seasoned tandem operations. Our case took a couple of years and they were NEVER tired of us or showed any type of resentment, fatigue or unwillingness to fight on. They always welcome our input and worked toward our goal. During the process, we learned a lot about the law and how some of the tenets of law are interpreted. In other words, they educated us on what the outcomes might be and what our expectations should be. We became informed clients which helped our working relationship. By the time the case was over, we were like family to them because of the professional way they handled everything and the way they treated us with courtesy and dignity. Our opponents got to respect us and the experience changed the way they conducted their business. This was not the only case we had with the opponent but this set the tone and has tremendously influenced the way the other cases are unfolding. When I met Keith the first time, I told him that I wanted him to give us a voice. At the end, he gave us more than a voice. He gave us a platform, he gave us power that we never knew we had, he gave me freedom to be able to look our enemies right in the face and tell him exactly how we feel about them. The education we got from Keith and Sarah has propelled us in to a place we never knew we dare dream to be. The crowning moment came last year when my niece was deposed by one of the attorneys in another segment of the case. The attorney told her: you should seriously consider going to Law School. I believe you would make a formidable attorney. That was nothing short of the training she got from both attorneys of the Pearson Law firm. We love them, have kept in touch with them since the case ended. We unreservedly recommend them to anybody who needs a well seasoned attorney who would handle their case or cases as if that was their only case. One thing I know is the fact that they will leave there much more educated than they got in. We will not hesitate to reach out again to them if we needed other representation. It might help to know that their office was at least 180 miles from my home. That, in itself shows the obstacle that we had to overcome throughout our interactions. Believe me, that much distance never slowed down the process or affected the thoroughness of their work. As I look back now, I can't help but thank God that our paths crossed and we were privileged to have the luxury of dealing with such fine people.
