“Sandy Wallack helped my wife and me with a legal problem from about a thousand miles away. Living so far made the situation difficult, but Sandy was there for us via phone or e-mail every step of the way, even corresponding on Sunday nights. He was friendly and courteous, but above all very helpful with difficult legal matters and made us feel safe and well taken care of. He continues to follow up to take care of loose ends and keeps us informed as to what is going on. I heartily recommend Sandy Wallack for any legal problems that may occur!”
