I recently closed a case with the help of Drake and his wonderful law firm. Before I hired him I was dealing with an incompetent lawyer who wasn't fighting for the best outcome. Once I switched over to Drake and his law firm things changed for the best. His team practices great communication and answered all my questions quickly. I would highly recommend reaching out to him!

Made my horrible car accident ordeal less stressful. Got a broke ankle from the accident and they were able to come to my house to start everything. They have helped me since day one and I wouldn’t know what I would have done if they didn’t reach out and have all the information I needed. Would like to thank them for their hard work and great service.
