Mr. Price represented me in a Domestic Violence case. After a little over a year, the case against me was dismissed. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Price and his office were incredible in communicating and seeing my needs. With Warren Price by your side, you can walk into court with confidence knowing you have the best representation possible.Avvo User

Mr. Murphy and Mr. Price were the first attorneys I ever worked with. They took time to explain each aspect of my case and made themselves available whenever I needed them. They helped me through the most stressful year of my life and ultimately proved my innocence. I would highly recommend their firm. Not only are they great attorneys, but I would also consider them my friends.Riley C.
