Stratton Law

We take our work seriously, but not ourselves, and provide this balance of insights, humor, irony, and yes, reality, in the hope this will add knowledge and general enlightenment! Take something away and share it with others. Our goal is to simplify complexities as much as the law will allow, but still be able to smile.
