Alagood and Cartwright have handled matters for me ranging from LLC to contract mediation. They successfully argued before local courts, then appellate court taking down a local "legend", sanctions were brought against the entity and upheld. I know Alagood and Cartwright will lead their clients wisely. They do not tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to hear. If there is need for litigation, they will handle matters for me.
