  • Michael John Tonsing

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Steve Pingel for more years than either of us would care to admit. Let's say more than thirty years. He is very bright, personable, empathetic, and honest. He has a great deal of legal experience and I have called upon him for consultative advice myself (in representing my own clients) in the past.
