The BEST in the business!
I have used the services of this attorney several times, and each time Mr. Worhatch stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park every time. Though he is very knowledgeable in the field, he requires you to take an active role in your case and you work together to obtain the best possible outcome. The vast expansion of his talents is so great, one would be pleasantly put at ease regardless of what type of case they acquired him for. Mr. Worhatch has excellent communication skills, as an attorney, and never hesitated to make sure I not only understood each step of the process, but that I was comfortable in the decisions that were being made as well. In the courtroom he is a force to be reckoned with: confident, stern, direct, and a take no prisoners type of defender. In the office, he will guide you through the process as a friend. Because of all of this, one would can feel confident HE WILL get the job done!
