    As a lawyer Monte Neilan represented my legal needs in the most professional manor. He was thorough, informative, and supportive. My past legal experience had not been positive, so it was refreshing to find someone that was both a legal advisor as well as a Good human being. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case, and did not cause undue stress. I would highly recommend Monte to anyone looking for an outstanding law professional.
