Needed help when county charged 10% penalty due to late payment behind challenging circumstances
I contacted multiple lawyers and very few responded in detail to my query. Mr. William Lehner was not only prompt but took care of my issue until a full resolution to my satisfaction. I will hire Mr. William Lehner again should the need arise and would recommend to all without any second thoughts. Thanks for all the great service!!
