"As a former Mrs. Tennessee USA, I wanted to innovatively continue my platform work in the community upon completing my reign. Fidelis Law not only encouraged me to continue helping others, they actually showed me innovative ways to make my voice be heard, through helping me implement a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization that would help teens leave a lasting legacy. I am thankful for the friendly service they always provide. I feel safe and confident working with an incredible team that is always a call or email away. When I need imperative advice, Fidelis Law always has my best interest at heart. I'm thankful for their expertise in non-profit law."

"In early 2013 our church was drawn into litigation. It seemed at every turn the first attorney that we retained was out maneuvered and somewhat unconcerned. In September 2013 we learned of Robert Pautienus and his firm through a Christian organization, and retained his services. In a very short time the church had a negotiated settlement thanks to Robert. Our church could not be more pleased with the services of Fidelis Law, and recommend them without reservation."
