This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Exactly the lawyer we needed! Wise, knowledgeable and provided guidance when we felt lost.
Our case was very complex, as most are. We had established an LLC with three partners and one of the three turned out to be very dishonest. Over a period of time, the partner embezzled all of the LLC's financial holdings. JR was quickly able to navigate through the massive amounts of data, and then guided us through the thought process necessary to make informed decisions, in order to proceed with our civil case. JR's knowledge of the law, thorough research, and ability to articulate complex issues, made our path clear. When you have part of your life's savings taken and you realize that the system is truly designed to protect the "white collar" criminals, you need an attorney that can break down the complexities of the law, into manageable pieces, that lead to the best possible result. JR has the ability to make the obscure seem clear, the difficult seem easy, and the wisdom to help with the emotions that can blind one from making the right and best choice possible when confronted with nothing but bad news. JR has a wonderful and warm personality, making it easy to work with, yet will fight with a vengeance for you. JR came highly recommended to us from another attorney that was not available for various reasons and we could not be more thankful for the recommendation. We would hire him again if ever needed.

Extremely Satisfied Client
Words cannot express the gratitude our company has as it relates to the efforts put forth by J.R. to solve a rather complex problem we presented him. In a matter of a few short months, the end results achieved far exceeded our initial expectations. We highly recommend his services, and wish that human cloning was legal so we could have similar positive experiences with attorneys in other states we operate in.
