Tony was the best ever. He was responsive and would answer any questions I had right away. I have had experiences with lawyers who would act like you were bothering them when you had questions. He made me feel like he was treating my case like it was his most important case. Not one complaint and I tell anyone who asks if I know an Attorney about Tony. Thank you again.
