  • Thomas Andrew Player

    I have known Roy professionally and personally for over 12 years. He is one of the brightest and best attorneys I know. More important, he has a true passion about the type of law he practices, and has built a successful firm tailored to help people during difficult times when they are often the most emotionally vulnerable. Roy loves what he does, and as a result, consistently provides the highest possible quality of representation to his clients. Roy was also literally made for this kind of law, as he has the perfect temperament to guide his clients through the often bewildering and intimidating legal process efficiently and effectively, utilizing dispute resolution processes such as “collaborative divorce,” keeping his clients focused on the real issues (which in family law can be challenging), and otherwise striving to reach an optimal resolution to every case. I refer clients to Roy without hesitation, having the utmost confidence that their legal needs will be well served.
