Education

What my clients say...

Travis is amazing at his job, at the last minute things weren’t looking so great, but his skills as a lawyer and negotiator he managed to get a rather large settlement for me, I’m extremely confident in his ability and will be using his services again!

What my clients say...

He was absolutely amazing. Answered all my questions and was able to do it in a very timely manner. Would recommend him to anyone.

What my clients say...

Travis has such vast and discerning understanding of law and is well read, yet he can explain legal terms, requirements and possible outcomes in a way anyone could understand. Explains what is necessary, not what the client hopes to hear.
