Friendly and Responsive Attorney
Kevin helped me to resolve a copyright issue quickly and completely. From our first email to phone conversations he was able to explain to me in layman's terms the language and posturing of the paperwork and case. I am grateful that he was able to remediate the issues and i would defiinitely hire him again if I ever needed to.
