Sandy Edlemon at ReManCo liked the experience working with John and Marilyn. They were very understanding and did the best job I could have asked of them. I feel like I had a wonderful team and more I feel like I have made new friends with these people. Thanks guys for all the hard work!!!!!!
My attorney was John Coulter. He did a perfect job handling my case and he always had my best interest in mind. He kept me informed and always steered me in the right direction. I can’t imagine using any other attorney in the future.
I am giving Attorney John Coulter 5 stars because he is very much worth every one of them. I was extremely happy with him and the services he provided to me for my unemployment appeal. He was extremely knowledgeable, honest, caring, kind, and considerate. He was in constant contact with me about my case. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney to assist me with my case. Thank you so much John! :-)
Carter has handled 2 unfortunate cases for me and did so wonderfully both times! Very professional, patient and kind. Answered any and all of my many questions. I trusted him the first time and def the second. I know my case wasn’t handled thoroughly. I hope I never need him again but if I do I will be back to see him.
Will and Neil were so awesome to work with. They made us laugh in sometimes very uncomfortable situations, and we really felt like they did their absolute best to fight for our case. We were very pleased with the outcome and would recommend this firm to anyone looking for legal counsel. Top Notch!
Attorney Stein and his team were absolutely fantastic!! They received my case after my original attorneys had to release it. Attorney Stine and Ms Whitney are thorough, compassionate, honest, and truly have the best interest of the Client at heart. If I am ever in need of legal representation again in the future I will not hesitate to retain the McMath Woods Law Firm!!
