It was a pleasure working with all of FELICE / EHRLICH handling my case. I want to thank everyone for their professionalism and courtesy and honesty in dealing with all of the obstructions and uncertainties. I especially want to thank Ken. In the beginning, I was told he was the best and that is a fact. Thank you, Ken. I also want to thank Janie for guiding and directing and making me feel comfortable through the process. Thank you all it was a pleasure working with you. Mr Hall

It is not easy navigating legal issues that effect your future and having an experienced, compassionate advocate on your side is well worth the time and expense to help with those intricacies. Many thanks for your guidance and assistance in a field in which you are an expert.
