“This firm is amazing – hands down! Chris Kirker, Julie Hill, and everyone are phenomenal to work with. I was referred to the firm and had an urgent need for legal work. Needless to say, I felt vulnerable and literally knew nothing about the firm so you can imagine my initial reservations and concerns about working with them. They are extremely professional and everything they said, did, and told me to expect to happen did – period! They never left me “out of the loop”, took time to explain things to me, and even responded to some of my requests over the weekend – not expected from me – but they did it anyway. Service and results are/were exceptional – I recommend them 100%.” – Jim H.
