"Paul was extremely competent, pleasant and quick to respond. It significantly helped us to prepare an answer to a Federal Court complaint."—John Finnegan, Monroeville, PA

"You did it again. Your research from March of 2018 resulted in the court granting summary judgment against the plaintiff in a hearing that took place on Friday. It took a while to get the plaintiff to acknowledge facts needed for defendants to file a plea in bar and a motion for summary judgment, but eventually I got that part of the job done. The rest relied upon your research. The outcome was a huge relief to my elderly clients.  Once again, many thanks for your excellent work."—Breckenridge Ingles, Gloucester, VA
