5-Star Attorney

Laura, you are the light in that office. The smile that makes everything better. Your kind words and compassion go a long way when people walk in with their heads low, hurt, angry, crying or maybe just having a bad day. You listen when people are in need of an ear or just quiet when need be.  Lance is a classy elegant man who commands respect when entering a room.  His attention to detail and experience are very impressive. Speaking from my heart there is a kindness in his eyes and just a feeling of his confidence that I knew I could trust him to defend me at any level. He is a 5-star attorney.
