Mr. Vogel provided excellent service in helping us resolve a matter with the Charlotte Mecklenburg School system/Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Dept.. I highly recommend him for your legal needs. He's both passionate and efficient in seeking the best outcome for his clients. He communicates in an effective manner, so that you always have a firm handle on what's happening at present and what to expect next. Mr. Vogel will work hard for you and your family. This was a rewarding experience and I'm thankful I had the chance to get to know this true legal professional and gentleman.
