"I had an issue with a contract come up that was a sensitive matter. I was apprehensive about pursuing a case or not and had consulted with a couple firms in the area. Once I spoke with Mr. Duarte, I felt he would be the right person to handle my case due to his knowledge on the subject, along with his demonstration of personal and professional integrity. I felt that he listened to what my concerns were, personally communicated throughout the process, answered my questions, and understood my point of view. I would definitely recommend him as one of the best attorneys in the Tampa Bay area."
