Highly Recommend
Wayne excelled in legally caring for me and my children during an extremely difficult time in our lives. He never approached our case with his own legal agenda, but wisely and carefully sought to understand our particular needs, issues, and desires. Wayne went far above and beyond to masterfully work with all involved in order to protect my children and me and to secure provision for our future. It was clear every step of the way that we were not just another legal case for Wayne, but that he genuinely cared for me and my children. His expertise, wise counsel, and authentic concern for our family was invaluable. He helped us to walk through a very difficult time in our lives with legal discernment and victory. I would recommend Wayne to anyone. He is a lawyer who is trustworthy, honorable, and very skilled.

Highly recommend Wayne
Wayne went above and beyond the call of duty to help me do what was right for me and my children during such a turbulent time. I had a previous lawyer before hiring Wayne and I felt like they were managing their own agenda and not what was right for me, my family and my budget.
