Never Gives Up
I hired Mr. Britt when I had just lost an arbitration trial that had granted a judgment against my business and myself personally for $640,000. Mr. Britt was able to organize the evidence and presentation of materials to have the judgment overturned by District Judge. He then led a four year fight against the plaintiffs to protect me and my family. In the end I never had to pay a penny out of my own pockets. Mr. Britt remains a close friend and confidant to this day. Highly recommended !!
