Real client reviews

I highly recommend Tonii and her firm

Tonii Roulston of Roulston Urquhart was invaluable in helping me get through a difficult situation. Her straightforward, no-nonsense attitude and her high level of confidence put me at ease, knowing that my case was in good hands. Her professionalism was beyond what I expected and she was always available for any questions that I had. Not only was the outcome of my case the best possible one for my situation, but it was also an outcome that was not even considered by other defense attorneys that I consulted. I highly recommend Tonii and her firm.
