WHAT PEOPLE SAY

When I met with Andrew I felt very comfortable and he put me at ease. My life was on the line and other lawyers that I met didn’t seem to understand that. Andrew explained what was going on every step of the way and he was very easy to get along with. Ultimately, he managed to get the prosecutors to drop the charges against me and I cannot thank him enough.
