Client Review
Mr. Sleight is extremely intelligent, personable, compassionate, and approachable. He never wavered in his commitment to make sure that I was informed about all aspects of my law suit. Whenever I called him with questions, he always responded immediately. I would recommend him highly as a construction/business/real estate attorney.
