Best Real Estate Lawyer you will find!
I was named in a suit i shouldn't have been in and Ian and his team of lawyers had me released in no time. I will be recommending them to anyone who needs representation. Thanks again Ian!

Good attorney
As a small business person - I have hired Ian on multiple occasions, and he even helped me out greatly in a lawsuit I unfortunately got tied up in. In the end - he's a very smart lawyer, a good legal researcher, an excellent document writer and a good very communicator. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a good litigator
