I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Drake and Melissa, his assistant.
During a most unpleasant experience they were responsive, helpful, had a game plan in mind and came thru positively and quickly on every strategy.
In need of a good lawyer and literally looking on Google reviews , I cold called this office and spoke with Melissa who immediately was empathetic, kind, and full of hope for a positive outcome for the situation. She was really why I went with this particular lawyer, and have told Mr. Drake she is worth her weight in gold.
He resolved this situation so quickly, that it was worth every penny. He does what he says he is going to do!!
I really admire Mr Drakes energy, commitment and follow thru and highly recommend him to anyone needing an advocate on your side.
