Lawfirm was professional and great
Hired the firm to help me with a divorce after I found out about my wife's unexpected infidelity. They assigned Mark Randall. Mark was direct, no BS, and professional and they've seen everything before. He also set what was realistic vs unrealistic expectations and sometimes grounded us, which we need. Mark was able to set me up with a PI firm to help get some control back in my life when it was spiraling but quickly advised when to just focus on the divorce itself and move on. We ended up having an "amicable" divorce and the Mark helped bring the terms to paper and process everything and attend court proceedings. In terms of the only experience that would be better is that lawyers can be busy sometimes in court so depending, you may have to call in to get appointments and "get on their radar", but once I did, everything went super well.

A good listener, well prepared, organized & law knowledgeble attorney
After working with his partner Melissa Needle for the past 15 years thru my 1st judge, the Appellate Court, then my 2nd judge, Her partner Alex Cuda represented me in a 2nd Appellate Court appearance this past spring. That court recently ruled in my favor on all of the issues before them. Alex invited my input through the document creation & presentation stage, he worked closely with Melissa to prepare, then represented my best interests before the Appellate court. Alex was prepared, organized, & he knew the intricate details of my complicated case. He was non confrontational with the opposing attorney or judges, & he presented our case concisely and answered questions succinctly in the short time he was given. Alex knows the law. Can't say enough good things about this attorney & his partner in what I hope to be my final court experience.
