“I have never worked with better lawyers that when I worked at LSGMI. I remember my years there as ones of constant and intense service, and I firmly believe that legal service lawyers ennoble the practice of law with their devotion to those most in need of our help.

-Lincoln Diaz-Balart, U.S. Congressman
