  • Leonard Ray Higdon

    I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Rotole as an opposing attorney, mediator, and as a specially appointed abitrator, wherein Mr. Rotole was tasked with entering orders regarding the division of a complex marital estate. Mr. Rotole is an extraordinarily knowledgeable and effective attorney in the area of family and domestic relations law. He is considered an authority in the area and is an asset to the profession and community.
