I survived a horrible situation with a surgeon and called Painter Law Firm for help. Robert Painter, Linda, Julie, Catharine, Sharon, and everyone at the law firm were so nice and treated me like family. Mr. Painter didn't use big words, but explained things to me like a regular person. We went to mediation and got a good settlement for my case. It took a big weight off my shoulders. I'm grateful to them and the Lord for all of their help.
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the Painter Law Firm. I was a young mother of 2, needing legal help with my newly born son. I was new to it all, and he guided me through it all. He helped me and my family in the welfare of our son in so many ways. My family and I will forever be grateful to him. Not only is Mr. Painter a wonderful lawyer, he treats you like family, along with his amazing staff. I am so happy I found him. I recommend anyone needing legal help, to choose this firm. It was one of the best things our family have ever done.
Robert Painter of the Painter Law Firm was absolutely brilliant! My case became very complex but Mr. Painter strategized and executed the plan with precision and perfection to the point he was able to head off potential downfalls and we were prepared. He fought for me and the injustice of the situation with extreme passion. It was impressive to watch him quickly use case law to combat the defendants arguments and objections with his knowledge of the law. The entire office is professional and courteous. You will not go wrong using this law firm!! It is not often we need legal representation but when I do, I will call The Painter Law firm to ensure I will be treated with respect and know they are fighting for me.
Mr. Painter is extremely friendly and made time to listen to my story, although it was rather difficult for me to talk about. He was informative and realistic about my case, but more importantly, he was very honest. It breaks my heart that my husband will only see his daughters from Heaven but it puts my mind at rest knowing that justice was somewhat served.....and this could possibly save someone else's life from ending.
