Vernon is a credit to his profession and is clearly a person that has a solid moral compass. I called his firm to gather some legal advise and he called back within 20 minutes and volunteered 20 minutes of his time, giving me far more than expected. And to top it off suggested I may well be able to achieve my desired result without legal representation. Without doubt this is the easiest recommendation I’ve ever made.
Mr Ready has a high level of integrity. He works diligently to find as much information as possible for his clients best outcome. He explains things clearly and takes his time to make sure the clients understand. My family and I are extremely happy and confident with Mr Ready.
Vern Ready is my family’s hero. My ex-wife called me on the phone at work. As she had a restraining order in place and I answered I soon found myself under arrest. This was very bad in more than one way. First I have position that requires I maintain a security clearance, second I am a single father, this could cost me my job and all that comes with employment, house, car, food, etc. Lucky for us I found Vernon Ready. This was my second arrest for a domestic violence/non-violent (DV) issue.
