I was experiencing some serious charges, my LDA wasn't really helping my case. I reached out at about 4:30 on a Sunday they got back to me within the hour. Lane told me how long the court process would take and always helped keep me calm when my mind would race. He told me the results Mark would get me and Mark did exactly that. If I ever have any legal problems they will definitely be the first ones I call. Id recommend them if you want a lawyer who’s worth the money and service!

Paul Johnson was my attorney over 15 years ago. He helped protect me and my children, even though it meant to file something uncomfortably because he could have been retaliated against by the judge. But he only had my children's wellbeing in mind. I am only mentioning this now, because my children and I have been in hiding; but it is time for me to share my story in a book now that my children are adults. So if you want someone whom you can truly trust to represent you, I highly recommend Paul Johnson! Thank you so very much Paul! May God bless you and your loved ones daily! We would not have been able to survive the horrific ordeal without your help! Again, thank you!
