Deana Kendall 12/02/2020

I had been referred by a friend who has a close connection with the firm. I met with Mr Henry Brookman who offered me a free initial consultation to discuss my matter. Mr Brookman is very thorough and has great attention to detail and care. I genuinely feel that he has a great understanding of my circumstances and situation. Moving forward, I have received continuous updates (when relevant) regarding developments to my situation and all correspondences are clear. I feel confident with Mr Brookman's guidance and excellent team! Though my matter is still on-going for the time being, I cannot highly recommend enough! In any event, I will always be eternally grateful to Mr Brookman and his team.
