“These guys are legit! They were every honest about the possible outcomes of our case. Gave us their plan of attack and then executed it flawlessly. So much so, the opposing parties withdrew and moved on. I was being sued by a previous employer over a non-compete. David was our council and he was a rock star. I was getting email regularly receiving emails after hours and getting responses to my questions about them late into the night. That’s dedication. Priced very fairly for their level of competency. Will definitely call them again if the need arises.”
