"I endorse this lawyer, he is an excellent attorney and advocate."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jun 23
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Relentless. That's the way to describe Neil Fox. Neil will scrutinize every last detail in a case, finding evidence that nobody else even knew existed. He will then take that evidence and use it to his client's advantage. Neil is the kind of never-quit lawyer that other lawyers can't help but admire. I would recommend family and friends to use him if they needed help."
