Ned is a “What you see, is what you get” kind of guy. I have dealt with attorneys in many states and for different reasons, but I have yet to meet one that prides himself on under promising and over delivering. He will turn away your business before promising something he does not believe can or should be done. Too many other attorneys have told me what I wanted to hear and acted more like my “friend” instead of doing the job I hired them for. Ned definitely wants to be your friend, but he knows that it is his obligation to get take care of your needs first. After all, isn’t that what you are paying him for.
