Jeremy Derington and April Robinson at The Allen Law Firm were extremely helpful, courteous, and extremely understanding of my situation. Jeremy explained the legal process and answered every question I had, and eased my worries about the process. They were fair and under the circumstances timely and detailed with all documents and processes involved. We even managed to have a laugh or two during it all. I can't express my gratitude enough to Jeremy and the firm.
