Client Review

"When we first met Paul, we were struck by how well he grasped the situation at our first meeting. We interviewed at least 5 attorneys and no one else was able to understand the “big picture” and work to see all sides treated fairly. Over time, we’ve also had opportunities to work with Axel Lindholm and Kenny Sumner on matters and have found they exhibit the same integrity, diligence and meticulous attention to detail we so value in Paul."
