"In March of 2003, General James N. Mattis reiterated the 1st Marine Divisions’ motto of ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy’ in the closing of a letter to all Marines serving under his command in the First Marine Division just before the invasion of Iraq. I vividly remember reading that letter from the General. The motto served me well in Iraq and throughout my life since coming home. Applying the motto to my practice, I cordially investigate each claim then present an intense and aggressive defense to obtain the best results for my clients.”
