How Amsberry Elder Law Lawyer Helps You
I was having serious legal problems. For a family matter, I picked Mr. Russell Amsberry because he not only answered the phone on the first contact, but also listened to our case and was real, empathetic, and educated. We were ready to make a call once he provided us with an estimate and discussed the scenario. His retainer cost was reasonable, and his staff was kind and knowledgeable.
