    Gary is an excellent attorney. I’ve seen Gary’s legal work from start to finish on cases and he is someone I would highly recommend. I realize that Gary focuses his practice on Family Law, Probate, and Guardianships, but I’ve seen first-hand how well Gary can get to the core issue in virtually any case. He’s very smart, aggressive, and diligent in his representation of his clients. Gary always goes the extra mile for his client and I would encourage anyone to seek his counsel.
