I have been very pleased with the capabilities and work product of Webster Szanyi attorneys. For example, Jeremy Colby is a former County Attorney who is highly effective in municipal litigation. The firm was recently retained as special counsel for a highly technical lawsuit. In a few months’ time, Webster Szanyi obtained a successful result for the Town. Jeremy’s diligent response and immediate grasp of the issues makes it a pleasure to work with this firm.
