Best of the best!
First off.......Jesse Butler is not just a good attorney, he is an amazing attorney that doesn't miss the smallest of details and he knows very well how to coach his clients. Our case was very complicated because it involved intellectual property. Someone had stolen and claimed our Google, Yahoo, Bing and other business listings as their own and they were stealing clients and poaching our website traffic! Morgan and Morgan turned our case down and another attorney in Charlotte County was honest enough to tell us it was way, way out of his wheelhouse. We searched a long time before finding Dickinson and Gibbons and Jesse Butler. Our case was time consuming and involved hiring professional witnesses to trace all the changes made to our listings to the offenders ip address. If not for Jesse, I would have lost all hope in the legal system but not only did he manage to get the case settled out of court, we got much more than we ever expected. He knew how to get the insurance companies involved. He knew exactly how put this thief between a rock and a hard place. In short, he did what many would call impossible and we are forever grateful we found him. His confidence, poise, professionalism and knowledge intimidated the offender and his lawyers as well. It was amazing to watch and I cannot say great things. We would highly recommend Jesse. He will go the extra mile to see your case gets settled. Truly a brilliant man.
