  • Daniel Richard Karon

    In my 20 years of practice, I've come across very few lawyers that possess such credibility, competency, and trustworthiness. Drew knows his craft, he knows people, and he understands how to use the law effectively to help solve their problems. I've seen Drew in action countless times, and not only would I eagerly refer him to a friend or family member, I'd hire him for myself.
