  • Recommend Him and His Firm Highly

    “My initial contact with Stuart Talley was in November 2012 after I did an internet search for some toxic metals I was told were in my bloodstream. He called me in response to an internet inquiry on a Saturday. We talked for a long time and he gave me a lot of information that day. We later met in person when he was in the Los Angeles area. At that time after receiving a lot of information I would not have had access to I hired Stuart on a contingency basis. I’ve been very pleased with his service with an ongoing lawsuit against a major corporation and recommend him and his firm highly.”
