What Our Clients Say

"We had such a positive experience. They were responsive, prompt, completely professional. They communicated clearly, gave us honest assessments, were 100% reliable and kept on top of everything over a long period of time. (They were the opposite of predatory, for what it's worth.) And...the outcome was very good. Highly recommend."

"I can not thank Noah, Stephanie, Bill and the rest of the firm enough!!! Every time we had to go to the office, or meet with them they were very understanding and willing to work around our schedules and appointments. When we went to their office they made us feel very welcome as well. I don't believe anyone can work as hard as these people can. They truly have a heart for the people they are working for and will work diligently and closely with their clients. They explained everything to us, being two 20 year olds injured extremely bad, and they helped us tremendously by getting us back on our feet with every tool and resource they had available after our wreck. I absolutely recommend Noah, Stephanie, and the rest of the firm all together!! They are just wonderful people and they are the up-most professionals you will meet. Thank you again Noah and Stephanie, and everyone else in the firm!!"

"I sought the assistance of Attorney Bill Rogel to help me with a long-standing easement dispute with a utility company. When I received the utility's notice that they were once again returning to my property I contacted Attorney Rogel. In the past the utility's personnel and contractors acted in a fashion I can only describe as bullying and intimidating. This was a matter of "David and Goliath" but I was determined to fully enforce my rights. I suggested that the utility communicate with Attorney Rogel. Thereafter the utility contacted me and asked my permission to enter my property to explain what they wanted to do and hear my concerns. Supervisors from the utility and the contractor met with me. Their bullying tactics disappeared. They acted like gentlemen this time. We agreed upon a reasonable resolution without having to go to court. I don't know what "magic" Attorney Rogel employed, but it worked for now, saving me considerable expense. Thank you, Bill."
