ReliabilityMr David Courie & team said what they was gone to do and got it done! If your looking for an outstanding lawyer, well look no further. I had a traffic ticket that had hindered/Crippled me but his team cleared me. Theirs just not enough words that I can express. But I thank God he lead me to Beaver Courie Law Firm. Michael
