Mr. Duvall helped us with a lease agreement on a house. It was helpful as a landlord to have very good details within a solid lease agreement along with good explanation of our rights and responsibilities. He also helped us with the sale of a property and provided a thorough well written purchase agreement along with advice and references to help complete the process smoothly.
