I couldn’t ask for a better attorney to represent me. Ernie is hard working and completely dedicated to his clients. I’ve been going through an extremely difficult situation with my siblings as trustees and beneficiaries… Ernie has helped me through it all. He’s never wavered in his belief of what is fair and just. It’s obvious to me how many countless hours he’s spent preparing for my case. Thank you Ernie for all you’ve done and looking out for me!
