Mr. Girdwood prepared a small estate plan for me at an exceptionally reasonable cost. My girlfriend also used him for a divorce, and she was very pleased with the results, and had referred me to him for my estate plan. I would definitely hire this lawyer again when I need something.

I Do Not Recommend
I made a mistake using him for my divorce. He gave me a ballpark number on what my spousal support should be, then didn't really fight for me at all. In fact, he seemed totally unprepared and caved under the pressure from my husband's extremely polished attorney. BUT the thing I find most unforgivable, is that he didn't even file the papers with Friend of the Court for the little bit of spousal support I was awarded, so I waited 4 months and had to go to Friend of the Court for help.
