Client Testimonials

We are proud of the work we do at Donald W. Fohrman & Associates, Ltd.. Below is some of the feedback we have received from recent clients:

Rating Stars

I decided to switch attorneys. I am glad that I did. It would take weeks for me to get a phone call from my old attorney. Nothing was more frustrating for me with my old attorney than not being able to get a simple question answered or not getting a response from them when my check was late. Don & Adam, as well as the office staff, responded to my calls right away.
