Alan provided great counsel and did an excellent job resolving my case. I was facing very stiff consequences. He knew exactly what to do and how to approach the situation in order to get me the best possible outcome. He told me what the best possible scenario was and then he did even better than that! He was very responsive through out and genuinely showed concern and care for my situation. He even came and visited me to discuss the case and check on me while I was in custody which I really appreciated. I highly recommend him and his team.
