Troy's firm was recommended to me by a close friend. Once I hired Troy and his Firm, I knew I was in great hands with his extensive trial experience and attention to detail. He was always working diligently behind the scenes and answered my questions promptly. All of his staff was updated on my case, so anytime I called they knew who I was and the status of my case. I would recommend Troy to anyone in a difficult situation. Kerry
