    "We are extremely grateful to you and your team."
    Dear Jake, Thank you so much for your outstanding skill at convincing people to follow the laws of their contractual agreements. We tried for years as you know to no avail. Whatever you said to the Parises enabled the sale of our lot to close on time. That is all AJ and I wanted for Christmas, to be rid of that mortgage. We are extremely grateful to you and your team. We will definitely recommend you to anyone we know looking for legal aid. We wish you the very best for your upcoming marriage and desires for a growing family. Having a loving and supportive partner through life's experiences is a treasure that is beyond measure and compare. If there is ever anything that we can do or suggest based on our experiences for you and yours please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

    "Just overall the best staff!!"
    Angie and Brittany were so kind and helpful on the phone. Calling a law firm can always be a little nerve wrecking especially if it’s your first time but they made me feel so comfortable. Mr. Dowd is so knowledgeable in probate and real estate that I would not recommend anyone else other than him on the Emerald Coast. Just overall the best staff!!
