I can’t speak highly enough of Zach and the team at VBR. They took on my case after another law firm stuffed it up,... and I had been turned away by other firms as a result. They were professional, caring and supportive throughout, keeping me up to date the entire journey. They achieved a result that far exceeded our expectations. These guys care about what is ‘right’. They put their heart and soul into it for me. Completely grateful to have them on my side. .I thoroughly recommend them.read more
