"I enthusiastically recommend Irvin to future clients. He went above and beyond duty in meticulously reviewing all the relevant materials for my case. He was extremely responsive. During our meeting, he explained all my potential legal options in a very accessible way. I absolutely plan to defer to Irvin's legal expertise in the future and overall I couldn't be happier with my experience. "
