  • Catherine Fleming

    Ray is in a class by himself. Anyone who meets him will recognize this immediately. He is not only a genius, he is perhaps one of the most genuine people I know. Recognized as one of the country's top lawyers, his down to earth attitude is refreshing in an industry known for large egos. I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer.
