"Byron and his law firm handled my case with utmost professionalism and exceeded my expectations. His determination to fight on never had me worried at any time during the process. For a law firm that is only four years old now, he is on the top level of lawyers in the state of Louisiana. Thanks again Byron and the Team for fighting for my rights."
