This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Actual, unbiased advice.
I had a difficult question that many may seem a morally ambiguous or even “bad”, however like a good lawyer, Mr. Jones gave me actual legal advice while others went straight to judgement as if my question turns me into a criminal just by asking it. I appreciate his legal advice and his understanding that even if my question could be seen as a bad thing, that I still deserve legitimate legal consul.
