Superb
Brett was everything one wants in a divorce lawyer: attentive, responsive, knowledgeable on current laws, professional, courteous and a stellar advocate for me. I made a huge mistake in switching to a much less (in every category) lawyer to "save money", all to my severe detriment. I ended up paying so much more money in legal fees AND in the end, to my ex. If you want to get your divorce DONE and done properly, expeditiously and with a lawyer who has brains and class, hire Brett. Don't make the mistakes I did--stay with the best and most qualified.
