    I endorse this lawyer's work. He handled the Tupak Shakur nightclub shooting in Arkansas and made an excellent recovery for his paralyzed client. He led the way in Arkansas fen-phen litigation winning huge recoveries for his clients suffering from primary pulmonary hypertension caused by ingestion of the diet drugs. You can see from his photo he is honest and straightforward.
