My Guardian Angel
Mr. Forman helped me to obtain full custody of my child, who is autistic. He was assertive, professional, and a shark. He never left my side. He was beyond excellent. Words cannot describe the joy that I feel. I am so grateful!

Mr.Forman is an excellent attorney. He listens very well and understood what direction we needed to go in. He helped me get exactly what I wanted in my custody case. I’d highly recommend him.

Child Custody
I am the sole legal and custodial parent. How many men can say that? Well, I can! I am eternally grateful for Mr. Harry Foreman. He helped me so much, and was very informative, easily accessible and very thorough with my case. He helped save as far as I'm concerned, my daughter's life. You have my upmost respect Mr. Foreman! Highly recommended!!

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Mr. Forman is a very experienced attorney who is thorough and diligent in the representation of his clients' interests. I have seen his work and he is a force to be reckoned with. I had an opportunity to handle a murder case, in which Mr. Forman was the initial attorney(his discharge was based on strategic and ethical considerations unrelated to his qualifications). I was able to secure an acquittal of all charges in large part due to the thorough supervision of the initial investigation and the excellent preservation of the record during his two years on the case. Mr. Forman is the real deal."
