Competence and Integrity
Fred handled my divorce in 2019 and I was grateful that he represented me. We built an excellent rapport and worked closely together throughout the process. He is very experienced, took the time to educate me on all matters and listened to my concerns. He was focused, fair and reasonable throughout the process. When needed, he was firm and persistent with issues that were important to me. He has integrity, is realistic and balanced in his advice and he respected my opinions/decisions. Fred and his team are smart, reliable, honest and very competent.
