    I worked with Hal on a client matter where i used him as an expert witness in a complex trust and partnership litigation matter. Hal is an expert in his field and is considered so by myself and his peers. I had the privilege to prepare and teach an all day Continuing Legal Education course on Asset Protection with Hal. It was a kick and he was right on point with all of his material. Hal is top notch!
