DeVaughn James was hands down much more professional than the insurance company. I received straight answers and exceptional service from my attorney Melissa Tucker Pope. DeVaughn James was honest and forthright.
Everyone was super caring and friendly. I had lots of laughs with my attorneys, but they were always hard working.
DeVaughn James gets the job done. I hired them because they did a good job with my sisters case. Melissa Pope was my attorney and she gave me good service.
