President
As the President and Publisher of a network of lawyers I have had exposure to thousands of lawyers in my 37 year old career and after just recently having worked with Mr. Provorny and his firm Herold Law I am delighted to add my highest recommendation of his counsel. My experience with Mr. Provorny involved a complex business dispute and a professional merger of three distinct corporations each with a unique culture and perspective and while mergers and acquisitions are never easy, Craig Provorny never skipped a beat. Throughout the entire process, which lasted six months, he was ALWAYS on top of every development and often able to present creative thinking and strategy which resulted in a win win for all involved. Time and again I have found Mr. Provorny to be the lawyer you want to have on your side.

Divorce case
While Craig was not strictly my lawyer for my divorce case, he provided me with referrals to other lawyers and was a invaluable source of wisdom and experience. He is hard working, loyal, and very smart. I would whole heartedly recommend him.
