I was contemplating on hiring an attorney to do some basic court filing for a client but the cost was a bit high. So we decided to try a paralegal to helps us out and be more cost-efficient. So we got everything done at a great price and was very happy with everything including the great customer service. I will be back to get my legal filing done no doubt and my client was ecstatic with the outcome.
