stacy client
I highly recommend Randy Appleton! He did an excellent job managing our expectations, and preparing my wife and I for the battle ahead of us; I never felt like I was just another case.
He always responded to our calls, patiently answered all of our questions, and communicated with us through out the process. Randy and his team helped us navigate a very difficult, traumatic, and uncertain time in our life as smoothly as possible given the circumstances. Randy is an excellent attorney, and he cares about the people he represents so well. Thanks Randy !!!
