Client Testimonials

Extremely professional and has an unrivaled ability to consider every vantage point in a case.

Mr Powell is extremely professional and has an unrivaled ability to consider every vantage point in a case. He represented a family member after a car accident and gave the case personalized attention. The big volume firms on TV settle en masse functioning more like claims adjusters. I would highly recommend Mr. Powell if you want a trustworthy attorney with experience.
