TESTIMONIALS

5 star rating

Tristan and his investigator Dan are some of the best. During the search for attorneys, it can be hard to judge because there are so many of them and all of their websites look the same. These two give the care and attention cases require to get the results you desire. A lot of attorneys will talk tough and push a lot of paper but when it comes to actually facing a jury, don’t have have any real desire to take the chance and will look to settle at the first offer they get. Tristan isn’t one of those people.  If you’re looking for proven winners, look no further.

This firm became my favorite as soon as they did one simple, but major act:  THEY RETURN THEIR CALLS WHEN THEY SAY THEY WILL!  Watch and see how many attorneys and their secretaries tell you that they’ll call you back, and then count the days from when (if ever) they do. I needed a real estate contract drawn up fairly quickly, and when I called this firm, they led me to Marty Zemming.  The first thing I told him was how 6 lawyers had already blown me off with promised returned phone calls.  Attorney Zemming assured me that his firm would not do the same.  He didn’t lie…
