"Neal Latt is an attorney of the highest integrity. He helped to extricate me from a very difficult situation, with the loss of an expensive property at stake. His capacity for thinking through every step, analyzing behavior, coming up with solutions and anticipating outcomes is superior. Neal has a strong moral compass and plays fair, which was very important to me. I really feel that he put his heart and soul into my case. I am very grateful for his services and will recommend him to anyone in need."
