"Mr. Gray was very knowledgeable in the area of elder abuse and was excellent at honing the issues. He was also gracious with the clients and took the time to listen and understand. While we did not conclude our negotiations at the session, we went beyond the agreed time and because of his professionalism, patience, and knowledge of the issues, we will likely settle soon. "
