    The whole experience was, well rather surprising. I chose them based on a referral from a local health care company. I thought that since they handle health care legal issues daily it would minimize the amount of time the attorneys spent on research and hold the cost down (< $15,000). Hell, they had to research everything costing tens of thousands of dollars. I felt I was taken to the cleaners. Will never go back or recommend them to ANYONE.
