I have known Luis Insignares for aprox 20 years. I have worked with him in the past so i have extensive personal knowledge of his ethics and legal knowledge and abilities. I continue to refer many clients to Mr. Insignares because i am confident that they will recieve the service and care that is the best available in the lee county area. I could not have a higher opinion of a local lawyer than regard held for Mr. Insignares.
