    "Jamie's attitude and work ethic is beyond this world"
    Finding myself in an unforeseen situation while being present in the States, I must tell you, Jamie's attitude and work ethic is beyond this world. Communication wise, his team is on point. I don't typically write reviews on matters and such but to be honest, I have to give credit where it is due. Many legal representatives nowadays don't instill as much time and effort into a situation like they once used to. However, Jamie ensured that my situation was resolved in a timely manner and updated me every single step of the way. A very thoughtful and respectable man, you won't go wrong with him!
