“I believe that our firm is different because we keep an open line of communication with our clients. To us, every client is a unique individual with different needs that we strive to meet; they are not just a file number.
Our clients have direct access to the firm’s attorneys and know the progress of their case every step of the way. All decisions regarding the case are made with a client’s’ full knowledge and understanding, because informed clients are happy clients. ”Ivo Tchernev
