You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.

Jane Muir was referred to me by a friend of mine who is also an attorney. I found them to be very professional, they provided me with excellent advice and were not looking to turn my small case into a big one. One thing that impressed me was that they asked for the facts and background information before we had our consultation. When we had our consultation she knew the facts and could advise me intelligently. It was a much more meaningful meeting as a result.
