At this first court date, the Defendant enters a "guilty" or "not guilty" plea.

Very satisfied with the representation from Brandon. Confident in his advice and knowledgeable in possible outcomes. Above all else he was very reassuring during court appearances with me. I highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a great lawyer.
