A Caring and Hardworking Divorce Attorney
Divorce is such a humbling and stressful experience that I'd hoped never to go through. I stepped into Bill's office the first time with trepidation and a feeling of defeat, but walked out determined and knowing he would represent me to the very best of his ability. Bill was with me when I first filled out paperwork, there to counsel me when needed along the way, and he was there the day I signed my divorce papers. I can honestly say he was with me every step of the way and I never felt otherwise. He and Danielle are not only extremely knowledgeable and helpful, but have a passion for their profession and care about their clients in a way that you do not see every day. This compassion is what really put their services above the rest and exceeded any expectations I had. Bill came very highly recommended from a close friend who went through a divorce and I will not hesitate to recommend him to others or retain his services if needed in the future.

Good services
Bill, I want to thank you, thank Danielle and all your staff for all your support and services. It's been a long and tough year, but fortunately it's over. Anyway, it was a pleasure meeting you and have you as my counsel throughout this hard and painful process. After having a different counsel for the first seven months of the case, I believed I made the right decision by replacing him with you. I appreciate the attention/professionalism shown by you and all your team. I cannot speak highly enough about you, you’re an excellent attorney and saw me through the case from start to finish. I won’t hesitate to call you or get your services again if I need to, and I definitely will recommend you to anyone who needs help with any divorce issues.

Exceeded My Expectations
Everyone has a different story and set of circumstances that result in their decision to divorce. Arriving at this decision was the first major step for me. The second step was finding the right Attorney to lead me through the process. After reading the professional bio of Mr. Bill Gentry, I scheduled a consultation and shortly thereafter selected Mr. Gentry as my Attorney. From the very start, Mr. Gentry was mindful of the issues that were sensitive to me. He provided various scenarios based on his personal experiences with similar cases and clearly explained the law in layman’s terms. This allowed me to fully understand the process. Mr. Gentry and his staff provided timely responses to my phone calls and emails. I felt that I was always their number one priority. I realized during this process that certain things were out of my control and learned the art of patience as never before. My trust in Mr. Gentry guided me through the anxiety and frustrating moments. I followed his lead, stayed the course and we achieved the outcome he predicted some 13 months prior. Mr. Gentry and his team were exceptional and exceeded my expectations.

Outstanding Firm
It is with great sadness one needs the services of a divorce attorney, but Mr. Gentry and his staff have provided me with a great service. In my case, things have been very complicated, yet Mr. Gentry and his team have been very supportive. He and his team have been able to work around my schedule, and even despite my distance from his office they have managed to do a great job keeping up with all our emails and phone conferences.
