This is a little late review but we wanted everyone to know that Paul got our case dismissed. We got into an car accident and which was our fault. We showed up to court all the times and we took car of the others person's car before court and Paul was able to get the tickets dismissed. If he wasn't our lawyer we would have been looking at some hefty tickets. Thanks to him we walked away saving money.

Mr. Serkland first of all, has a very charismatic and upbeat personality. Along side of that, he is very professional and experienced in his field therefore, worth the investment. I was excused of my ticket. Period!

Paul Serkland represented me at traffic court for a traffic accident I was involved. He helped maneuver me easily through the process and was able to assist in having my case dismissed. I am very appreciative of his services and highly recommend Mr. Serkland. He is professional and very glad I hired him to represent me.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Paul for nearly a decade. I have had the opportunity to see him in action and he is an exceptional attorney. He is always careful to take the time needed to listen to his client's and their specific needs.
