Great job
My husband and I retained Burton McKinnish to assist us with our home builder for breach of contract. Tegan Couch did a fantastic job for us and we were able to resolve our issues without further litigation. She wrote a very thorough letter to our builder, clearly listed our concerns and followed up periodically to ensure that the builder was completing all items as requested. We could not be happier. Thank you so much for your hard work on our behalf. We would not hesitate to retain your services again should the need arise.
