I was very pleased with the Mr. Flosi’s expertise in the field of police use of force. He has an in-depth understanding of the current law as it relates to the various force options available to police officers and he is polished in the art of testifying. Aside from his vast knowledge in police use of force cases, I was impressed with his indefatigable work ethic. I needed things done in a somewhat of a crunch and Mr. Flosi came through. I would not hesitate in hiring Mr. Flosi again.
