I sought Gene’s advice in navigating a business contract gone bad. His advice and assistance in negotiating the fragile situation were incredibly helpful and accurate.
I was very upset and confused when I lost my job suddenly. Gene’s knowledge and very personable demeanor put me at ease and his advice helped me obtain fair compensation and move on to new employment.
We had a complex issue which caused damage to our home and property. Gene had our matter resolved in the most practical and efficient way possible which alleviated a great deal of stress for our family.
