  • Douglas Lee Burdette

    I was at a trial lawyer's convention and approached Paul with a question about a difficult issue I was having in one of my malpractice cases. He took a couple of hours out of his day to have lunch with me and go over the problem. His insights and suggestions were key to us getting a great result for the client.
