Dear Bob,

Tonight, at approximately 7:15 PM, the Planning Commission, by unanimous vote, voted to approve our site plan, thus ending the Great Saga (3.25 years after it started).

Thanks for all your help and wisdom throughout this process. You have often been the greatest source of encouragement to me in the midst of a project which most of my ‘normal support’ found it difficult to fully wrap their minds around. There were many times I kind of felt like I was standing on a rock in the middle of the lake by myself. However, your words of encouragement substantially mitigated that experience and helped me press on.

So thanks for your help on all of this .....

In Him,

I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful work you did yesterday. ... To say that we couldn't have done it without you is a colossal understatement. ... if I need an attorney again, you would be my number one choice ... .

May God Bless You in All You Do

Thanks again for all your legal guidance and help on my case. It’s always great to work with someone who is so friendly, personal and professional...

I had the occasion to consult with attorney, Bob Magill, regarding a complicated legal matter. He demonstrated a high level of competence with in depth and 'readily accessible' knowledge. It was obvious he had a solid working knowledge of the legal matter - not just a theoretical understanding. He candidly identified areas of the law where others may have more expertise. In one case he offered us referral information and in another situation consulted with another attorney to make sure we had the best information possible. He showed a certain indignation at some of the 'injustices' presenting us and proposed a decisively more vigorous defense of our case than had been previously suggested to us. His views and recommended strategies also impressed me as sensible, balanced, and ethical. I would recommend him highly!

Cevin Taylor & his Associates at Magill & Rumsey have provided us with well-thought out counsel as we looked to start our new non-profit. Navigating the legal intricacies of meshing the vision for this new company with all the required legal paperwork and governmental filings would not have happened without their help. We're appreciative of the continued guidance and thankful to have found our way to a law firm with so much expertise and business acumen to help new on-profit start-ups like ours. We look forward to continuing our relationship with them as we launch this non-profit and watch it grow.
