I retained Jared on my case, and he was excellent in communicating with me every step of the way. Not only did he handle my case in a very timely manner, but he got me a lot more money than I ever expected!!! If you are looking for a lawyer that is very knowledgeable, meticulous and gets you the results you deserve, Jared is your man!!! He is AWESOME!!! Mark
I could not have been more pleased with the way Jay Kilpatrick handled my case. He went above and beyond with research to ensure that I was receiving all that was entitled to me. I am proud to call him my lawyer as well as becoming a friend. Penny
I highly recommend Benjamin Philley and his services. He not only help us with our case, but did it in a very caring and timely manner. Crystal
