Paul B. Ankin. He represents clients not only as their attorney – but as a friend who perpetuates

“We’ve already been helping you. We’ve already been representing you – even before you
knew you needed us. Why? Because we made sure the law was how it needed to be, for you.
So that you have an avenue or a remedy to be able to make a claim,” Ankin said.
It’s important to us to ensure that not only are our clients protected, but all people are
protected in their time of need. And that’s why we not only advocate for our clients, we
advocate for people even before they become our clients.”
