“Travis is a Magician once he walks into Court and goes out of his way to ensure we WIN. He is a keen listener and made sure in getting the best information from me to argue my case. Being a novice in Court, Travis made me feel confident each time I had to be present in court. He has been very client centric and supportive even post completion of my legal proceedings, whenever I have required clarifications on how my concluded legal proceedings will have an impact on certain areas of my life, he has offered his advice in a timely and patient manner. All that being said, what makes Travis different is he has got the experience, knowledge and the fight in him to WIN. Thanks Travis. Be the Best.” – C.R.
