I was really pleased with how well they handled my case and how well they communicated to me and updated me on my situation.
We loved the great service. They were very helpful. I will definitely recommend them to friends and family.
There aren't enough words to help capture the type of people this firm has working for them including my new friend Martin Futrell. This was an amazing team of people to work with in what was a really bad situation. I wouldn't have chosen another firm. They all made me feel as though things would be ok, never made me feel I was a burden to them,and Martin didn't mind the many questions I would present him with during our meeting times. Somethings he would have to explain a few times over, but he was more than happy to make sure I understood all things involved. I am a little saddened that things have come to a close,but very happy with all of the work these guys put in. In a world of myopic thinkers, this was a situation where being that type of thinker worked in a positive way. I really appreciate these guys and would tell anyone in need of their services, that there is not another option. See them. Thank you guys.
