“The Absolute Best”
I hired Alex Durst to represent me in a truck accident case that was very serious and traumatic. The truck company fought the case hard and tried to blame ME for the accident. Durst was not going to let that happen.
In the end, I got a GREAT settlement. It’s a huge relief...

The client ultimately recovered successfully.
“Aggressive and tough. Proven winner.”
Alex proved to be a very tough lawyer - he didn’t take the easy, quick money, but rather took the time and went through the necessary steps to really set the case up right.
