Skilled Inside & Outside The Courtroom

A litigator at heart, Mr. Halks enjoys the "Arena," better known as the Courtroom, as that is where he excels based on his superior oral and written communication skills, honed by hard work and experience. Halks is entirely capable of achieving maximum results with or without a battle in a Courtroom.
