Excellent representation!
Ian went above and beyond my expectations. The first time I spoke with him he spent almost an hour on the phone with me consulting on my case for free. I didn’t have to make an appointment to speak with him or pay an upfront fee. I hired him immediately. He got started on my case right away, he was always responsive to my emails, texts and calls. He was able to work out a plea that will ultimately get my charges dismissed. I would definitely call him again if I ever needed legal representation again and would recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer. Call him today!!
