I originally contacted two other firms before speaking with Mr. Alan Lescht. The two other firms after speaking to them on the phone did not review any of the documents that I sent, both requesting payment for consultation. A totally different and positive experience with Mr. Alan Lescht. After I...

I realized that I was about to miss a very important deadline to move forward with my complaint due to my own oversight. Even though I hadn't hired Mr. Lescht, he responded right away to my urgent email...
