Excellent service and results. All of the lawyers on TV talk smack about these guys b/c they don’t take their cases to court…think about it…if we wanted to go to court Culpepper Kurland would gladly do it, but there is no need with the results they offer. And they don’t need cheesy commercials with dogs taking vacations or owning cars to tell you how good they are. I would recommend Culpepper Kurland to all of my friends.
