Review
Ms Mccullars represented me during a recent mediation concerning child possession. She did an outstanding job. Her legal skills coupled with her unique understanding of the sometimes very complex personalities involved in family law issues were both reassuring and advantageous in my case. Her paralegal, Sarah Ermis, is outstanding in her own right. Together, they are a formidable team. I'm very grateful for their efforts on behalf of me and my children.
