A++++++ AND 10/10!! These are the best attorneys in the business as far as I am concerned!! From day one, I was treated with respect, consideration, and compassion! Every email was replied to within 24-48hrs at the very latest...most of the time before that! I felt as if I was their only client because of the attention they gave my case. They were supportive but realistic so I knew going in what was what. They were there for me every step of the way and then some! I will never be able to show my appreciation for them. They went above and beyond! IF anyone ever needs an attorney, CALL THEM FIRST!!!!!
