My divorce lawyer, and I referred him to others.
Very very happy with him. He handled my divorce. He knows his stuff, and didn't back down. Fair, honest, compassionate, understanding, and reasonable is how I would describe him! I have referred him to others, and everyone thanks me over and over again.
