I was introduced to the Rogerson Law Group for a dispute between my ex-business partner and I in August 2013. Rob Rastorp has done a great job giving the very best advice, and he was precise and very articulate regarding the smallest of issues. I will use Mr. Rastorp in future and will suggest him to my friends and families for legal assistance.
