Paul is one of a kind. When I was put in a situation that required a lawyer, I was upset, angry, and filled with dread. My past experiences with lawyers have not been positive and I was worried that I was in for more of the same.
I spoke with a lot of attorneys and I kept coming back to Paul as my number one choice. You know how sometimes you talk to someone and you trust them from the get go? Thatâ€™s Paul. Starting with our very first phone consultation, Paul was empathetic, upfront, candid, approachable, had a plan and perhaps most importantly had his guns out, blazing and ready to fight for me.
Paul is intelligent and extremely knowledgeable about the law. He is results driven and understands how to get the job done. Paul has handled much larger cases than mine, and I am blown away at the level of service he clearly gives all of his clients. I never once doubted his ability or questioned his dedication to my case. He always laid out all the possibilities and the best course of action regardless of whether that meant the most money for him or not. I always felt he put my interests first.
When I had questions, Paul would break down the legal jargon in a way that made sense. He also made sure I understood and agreed with everything that was happening. He never went forward with any aspect of my case without my giving the green light. He is extremely responsive. The majority of time I received a response within a few hours of my contacting him. He even made himself available on weekends.
I admit it - there were times that I was ready to break down. Paul talked me through and figuratively held my hand anytime I faltered. When I was nervous about being in court, he offered to take time out of his day to show me around the court house. He also sat with me in a court room and explained what was happening and what I should expect on my day. He always had my back and never judged me.
Paul went above and beyond over and over, again and again. You will not regret having him on your side. Heâ€™s a brilliant litigator and an amazing ally.
