They are highly knowledgeable, tenacious in the courtroom, responsive to their client's concerns and most of all patient. They understand that their clients aren't calling them under the best circumstances and they do their best to provide both reassurance and confidence. Above all else, Hester and Flynn are winners. I would recommend them to anyone. Read less
