  • Devin J Mace

    I worked worked opposite Dustin on many cases and have found him to be the consummate professional. Dustin is very experienced and knowledgeable in family law and is one of the few attorneys that I will refer cases to when I am unable to take due to conflicts of interest. I have no doubt that he will advocate zealously on your behalf should you choose him to represent you.
