Client Reviews

Beyond My Expectations!!!

I do not live in East Texas, therefore I was very uncertain about finding the best lawyer to handle my case. Through a little research and a few phone calls, I felt Mr. Watts would be the best to take care of me. Not only did he help me, he exceeded my expectations! He is compassionate, kind and attentive. He was always prompted in contacting me and staying in touch. I truly cannot say enough good things about him! . . .
