This is from Don Higgins as I don’t have a Google account. Trevor did an excellent job and was great to work with. If we ever need a lawyer he will get first call!

Our attorneys and their staff were incredible. Our attorneys guided us through the entire process with broad knowledge, thoroughness, and recommendations that were based on solid experience. The more knowledge we gained from them through the process, the more confidence we had in them. I would highly recommend them and wouldn’t think twice about using them again. Thanks again for all of your help.
