    "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.

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!
