Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • David Lee Milligan

    Dean is an EXCELLENT Lawyer. He and I have worked together on a handful of matters and I've known him for several years in our Trial Lawyer's Association. Also, I have hired him to handle some complicated and thorny litigation issues and he handles them with a skill only somebody with his many years of experience can muster. He is particularly skilled at Employment Litigation, and in that arena, he is among the top in the State. I wholeheartedly endorse this Lawyer.
