    Mr. Pine was a Guardian Ad Litem counsel on a DYFS case wherein I represented a parent. With his vast knowledge of family and adoption law, we were able to resolve several complex issues in that case. I endorse this attorney 100%.

    I have had the privilege on working on quite a few matters with Doug and he has been a tremendous asset. His professionalism coupled with the care for his clients is seldom found. He is a pleasure to work with and an exceptional attorney.
