“Where do I begin? First off the customer service was above and beyond. Then, after talking to Tyson, I realized there was a lawyer that actually cares. I couldn't believe his knowledge and compassion for a complete stranger. It was like talking to an old friend from high school who just wanted to help. Seriously. If you want someone who is going to represent you as if you were Ryan from The O.C., then this is your Sandy Cohen. Thank you Tyson. Im still in shock. 10 stars if I could.”
