  • Jordan Lee Couch

    I got to know Forrest through our shared interest in bettering the legal profession and helping clients resolve issues faster and cheaper. He is a phenomenal lawyer and a wonderful person to work with. His website wa-wills.com is a tremendous resource that I have referred multiple people to. If you are looking for an attorney I would strongly suggest contacting Forrest.

  • Daniel M Lear

    Forrest and I share a passion for figuring out how to bring law to the masses. And, to be completely honest, Forrest probably walks the walk better than I do. A tireless advocate for change in the legal system but also, and more importantly, for clients and their interests, I have no hesitation endorsing Forrest completely.
