  • Very Caring and Concerned About Your Case

    My experience with Mr. Valentine concerning my son's case was exceptional. I truly felt like he cared about my son and the outcome of his case. Mr. Valentine visited my son in jail the day after he was hired. Mr. Valentine said my son looked shocked to see him. I told him that was because the last time he was in jail I begged for 37 days for his attorney to go see him and he never went. Also, I was able to call Mr. Valentine directly, communicate by email and never once did I feel like I was bothering him. Mr. Valentine was able to get my son's court date changed to allow him to shorten his stay in jail by seven days and was awarded time served. I also observed Mr. Valentine in the courtroom with his other clients. I had the same impression of him as he dealt with his other cases that day. I will certainly hire him again if I have any future needs. Read On

  • He's on your side!

    I've never had anything on my criminal record, I've never had to deal with the justice system at all. From the first time I talked to Mr. Caulder on the phone I felt a weight lift off my shoulder. He gave me great advice on how I should move forward with my case. I was worried about not being able to see my family but he reassured me that everything will work out and after my first appearance I started to see the light. With me being an individual that's never had a criminal record, I'm proud to say hes my lawyer. I recommend everyone to give him a try because he is on your side! He will make sure that justice is served and that it is fair. Read On

In addition, it was unquestionable the integrity and honesty of the attorneys at this law firm. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of legal counsel and assistance. Read On
