I spoke with Mrs. Ruth about filing a case against my previous landlord for not returning my deposit. From the moment I answered the phone, she was in case mode. Her knowledge, expertise, and spirit exuded. She asked for details of my potential case and immediately offered assistance. It wasn't about her fee and how much I would be charged, it was about justice for a wrongdoing. Her integrity reaffirmed my confidence in the judicial system. I highly recommend Mrs. Ruth and would have no problem paying her fee to represent me in my civil matter because I'm confident in the results she would get for me. Absolutely worth every penny of her fee!!!!!!! Thank you Mrs. Ruth for your assistance!!!

Their knowledge of the law resolved an issue I was having with a crooked company. Not only did they give it readily; it was free of charge and without ask of gain for themselves. You all gained a client with that level of help and assurance, I would recommend you give them a call if you need real help.
