I've had a very unique case that required an expert advice in a very short notice as I was about to board a plane for an overseas offshore. I desperately discussed my case with Go to Court and surprisingly I've got a call from one of the greatest lawyer ever on Friday night saying he's happy to see me over weekend. Yeah, over the weekend!!! He sat with me on Saturday, reviewed my case and promised he will get back to me before my flights on Sunday. Long story short, not only I was pleased with their professional commitment, my case was resolved sooner than expected. Such a great team, such a great expertise. Highly recommended.
