Branch was much more than just an attorney to me. My wife of 33 years died of cancer while teaching school. The state would never give me a straight answer about her death benefits. I couldn't find an attorney that would take my case against the state until I met Branch. All the others said you cannot fight the state. Branch showed passion, humility, and concern for me. He proved with out question that the state was wrong and I was paid what was due me. He knows the laws and truly cared about me.
