        “I had a minor but bothersome issue on a litigation, and Nova Legal Group were extremely efficient, very effective and I am 100% pleased with the results they drove, and I am also quite impressed they managed to do my work and obtain the favorable resolution ahead of schedule during the year of COVID. And I think their fee structure is easy to work with and very reasonable.”
