““Whenever I have a legal issue, I email Chrys Martin at DWT and she immediately connects me to the right person in her firm. Having DWT an email away is so great because I never have to stress about legal issues—I know they are going to take care of it in a thorough and seamless manner that leaves me feeling great about the whole experience.”
— Darcy Cameron, Cameron Design Group
““I LOVE DWT. Without them I might not have a business. It is nice to know, if someone attacks me, I have a fierce litigator like John McGrory at DWT ready to do what it takes to keep Outside Van on the winning side. I did not know how important this was at the time of my lawsuit. There was not a lot at stake back then. Today there is a lot on the line and thanks to DWT it is still mine.”
— Erik Ekman, Outside Van
