    I might have paid a slight (and I mean very slight) bit extra for Mr. Young's services, but it was worth every penny. Mr. Young is second to none, in service, responsiveness, reliability, knowledge, experience and outcome. I would not consider using anyone else. I also have others I know that have used Mr. Young for complicated criminal cases and the feedback I received before retaining him for myself was the same, second to none and excellent outcome when the odds were against them!
