"Cantrell PLLC was referred to me by a trusted colleague to help me and my company in a significant non-compete and wage dispute. They found a small hole in the non-compete: the absence of one word. I read the contract countless times and never noticed it, but they did. While I could go on about the professionalism, expertise, consistency, and efficiency of the attorneys at Cantrell PLLC, it is their ability to identify what is significant, and their ability to use and defend it, that is most impressive. My company now uses them regularly to reduce legal risks. Cantrell PLLC is the first and last firm I recommend."
