Norm and his team were super helpful in settling our case. It was long and drawn out due to the other side; however, Norm was very patient and kind throughout the entire process. He was able to clearly articulate what was happening with our case every step of the way and was very responsive to any questions we had. I would highly recommend Assiff Law Office!
