"Miles was an excellent resource and amazing attorney. He is honest, and extremely professional. He got several of my cases dismissed, and takes his time with his work. I would recommend him to anyone looking for someone awesome."
“He was God sent! He worked on my case diligently....updating me with every single detail...
telling me not to stress and just leave everything to him. He never failed to answer all the
questions I asked him...explaining terms I didn't understand. Then I got the good news, the case was closed!
For the first time, I had a good night sleep and woke-up late! I'm back to living a normal life...sleepless nights are over...no stress...no more worrying about the case. This is all because of you, Miles, thank you so much!”
