Hunter at Whitestone is the man!! I had the odds stacked very much against me but Hunter got me off. We ended up going to trial and he was amazing in court. He really knows what he is doing! I am just so pleased with the outcome! You cannot go wrong with Hunter!! I am extremely grateful to Hunter and his secretary Marjorie rocks too! Seriously hands down best attorney EVER!!! You cannot get a better attorney!!

Never underestimate the power of a great Lawyer. We were so fortunate to have been referred to Bob Whitestone. He saved my daughter's life. Had it not been for his supreme intelligence and eloquent writings I'm sure the State would have had their way with her. His dependability and willingness to go above and beyond was the huge difference in every facet of the case. His advice was direct and his long term thinking and actions made the difference. We will be forever grateful.

Mr. Hunter is the best Attorney. He has helped me to drop my reckless. He took care of everything at the court, I didn't even have to say a word. I highly recommend.
