I contacted Mr. Norman with short notice before my court date. I explained to him my plight, and he advised me on the possible options to me. His fees were more than reasonable, so I happily hired him. Upon going to court , he got me the absolute best possible deal, and I didn’t even have to say a word. It’s best to stay out of trouble, but if you need an attorney, I highly recommend hiring William Norman. Better to hire an attorney now, than regret not hiring him later.
Will is an experienced professional. He did his homework on my case and got me the exact deal I hoped for. He kept everything real simple with me so I could clearly understand all the in and outs of the trail and I never felt out of the loop with everything.
Mr. William Norman has helped me. He responds back to you pretty quickly and definitely knows what he's talking about. It also seems like he is very well respected and known in the court rooms which I thought was amazing. I highly recommend him.
Worth every penny. Did better than expected. Humble and professional which is not expected. Will reccomend highly!
I have witnessed firsthand Will’s AGGRESSIVE and THOROUGH representation of his clients. He is passionate and caring about his clients and their cases. I have referred several cases to him and always get 100% positive feedback. He recently represented a close family member with a complex case that he got dismissed! He will not only represent you to the fullest extent, he will educate you and make sure you are fully aware of what is going on. He doesn’t settle, he demands results! Highly recommend this lawyer!
