Almost all cases involving your children or separation are deeply personal and emotional, and my case was no different in this respect. Attorney Grover Hastings demonstrated her experience and understanding while still getting to the heart of the problem. It was further complicated as it involved me living in the UK, my former partner and son living in another country in eastern Europe, and jurisdiction in Massachusetts (USA). It takes an exceptional lawyer to unravel understand the cultural, social and the logistical complications this brings, not to mention the financial / tax regime issues. She managed the complexity brilliantly and was able to apply the law to extraordinary circumstances. She very competently brought clarity to my situation, and effectively represented me in court, arbitration and in negotiations. Throughout, I found her to be extremely thorough, professional and ethical, and ensured I maintained my focus on what was important – my son. My former partner is a lawyer and my faith in the legal profession was fading, therefore to work with a lawyer with such a high level of professional integrity and competence was absolutely remarkable. I always found her to be direct and honest with me, tactfully bringing to my attention errors in my decision making when necessary and ensuring I maintained realistic expectations. Over the past 7 years, I got everything I asked for and more than I expected in every court appearance, arbitration and negotiation. This is owed entirely to the exceptional ability of Attorney Grover Hastings and the exceptional team at Perocchi Family Law. I never once felt like I was ‘just another client’.
