Sandra W. November 1, 2021
Doesn't respond to your case This lawyer kept telling me how busy he was.My son was brutally beaten and all I wanted was a simple demand letter. But he wouldn't even do that after months of begging him for legal help. I contatcted another lawyer who proptly took my concerns immediately and went into action.
