We were pleasantly impressed with our representation and the professionalism, knowledge and genuine concern for our particular situation. Our family had a favorable outcome. However, it's more than the outcome, its having that great feeling that your in good hands when the stakes are high. The attention to the small details can make a difference. One of my best experiences with a law firm.
