      - Past Client
      "“ Thank God, I found an attorney who took the time to actually investigate the facts of the case”"
      In 2017, I acquired three felony charges against me that were pending investigation, after many court appearances a friend referred me to Attorney Jerome Paun who had the foresight to actually investigate the complete facts of the case and decided that a neutral district would be beneficial to our case. Attorney Paun with his expertise and caring attitude understood the immediate need to resolve the matter completely. Due to his outstanding perseverance and caring staff, my case was resolved in a very timely and efficient manner. He and his staff went above and beyond to help. I would highly recommend him if you seem to be in need of an attorney. “Thank you again”
