Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Richard D. Granvold

    I endorse this lawyer. Go see an attorney who has practiced bankruptcy and knows what they are doing. Would you go see a surgeon who has performed 3 surgeries or 500? Think about it. You want experience and knowledge and accurate advice. Hence, I endorse Michael. I am not in his state and thus no relation at all..but do see his answers and time to spend providing them on AVVO. Call him now is my advice from an attorney who has practice myself 29 years and over 5,400 filings!
