Not worth the money
After spending more than $10,000 for the services still suffering. Due to negligence and mis-guidance of the lawyer, it's being almost a year and half and i am still paying the price. If you are looking for good divorce lawyer, please go for better option. It will save you money, time and peace. I wish there is 0 start on this website so i can rate lower than what 1.
