  • Lindsay Ann Lawrence

    I am proud to endorse my father. His skill in the courtroom is exceptional and he is someone who works tirelessly for his clients. I have never seen someone give a better opening, closing, cross-examination than him. His ability to connect with not only his clients but a jury is by far just simply amazing.
