  • Brian David McGrath

    I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Anderson was a zealous advocate for his client while exhibiting a high level of professionalism, even through a very contentious custody enforcement action. I hold Mr. Anderson's abilities as an attorney in very high regard.

    I have worked with Jeff when we were are separate firms, have worked against Jeff on cases, and finally we now work together. I think Jeff is a great lawyer, a thoughtful adviser, and a true attorney and counselor at law for his clients.
