I couldn't be more impressed
Harry did a fantastic job on my case. He went the extra mile when most attorneys wouldn't take the time to do so. I felt he truly cared about me and my well being and I really could count on him. Anytime I needed him or his staff they were there or got back to me very quickly. They took the time to get to know me and my case on a personal level and I wasn't "just another file folder in the drawer" If your needing an attorney don't hesitate! Make him your first choice you won't regret it.
