Legal Testifying

Legal TestifyingAGC will give you honest opinions based on the current knowledge available. We only wish to help the auto glass industry by exposing improper installation by unqualified companies or individuals. We do not make a living by giving expert testimony. We testify because it's the right thing to do.
