Thanks Jaime!
Jaime helped me through the process of a complex record expungement. He was very professional and friendly, and we got the result we were looking for. It was done in a timely manner and I felt like I was a high priority to him. I highly recommend Jaime for any legal need. Thanks to him I am able to have the career I always dreamt of. Thank you Jaime Longoria!

Great Counsel , really helped me out
I recently went through an unfair eviction by a terrible property management company .I had been a model tenant for almost 3 years. Always paid rent on time, no complaints, never even so much as a maintenance request . One manager in particular who seemed to have it out for me. I wasn't sure what my options were being it was a commercial property. I contacted Jaime and after explaining the situation, he advised me of my rights , and we immediately formulated a plan. He was quick to respond to texts and calls as things developed and unfolded. Overall SOLID attorney!
