I used Brown, Bradshaw & Moffat and would recommend them to anyone. Everyone in his or her office is kind, efficient and very responsive. You are treated respectfully and on an equal playing field - Jim Bradshaw made a horrible situation bearable. If I were to ever seek legal counsel again, I would go no farther than Brown, Bradshaw & Moffat.
