  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    I highly recommend Ted Waggoner. I have dealt with lawyers for over 35 years and can say with certainly that I have never known one who was as forthright, candid, knowledgeable, and accurate in every regard to his advice and knowledge of the law. He deserves high praise for his integrity and his hard work for his clients too. I endorse him gladly and recommend him highly.
