From start to finish, I was impressed with their work. Go and see them if you have any elder neglect or abuse issue. I was looking for an attorney to help me hold people accountable. They’ll take your case, and they’ll do a great job.
I can't say enough good things about everyone in the office. This law firm has always made me feel like part of the family, in and out of the office. I couldn't have asked for a better team to represent us.
They made sure I understood what was going on with everything. I had trust that what the law firm was doing was good for me and my case. Everyone was on it. They were really helpful through all of it.
