Fantastic attorney!
At the time I hired Paul, I was two years into a divorce that was costing me a ton of money and going no where. Paul took my case and helped bring it to a conclusion in a expeditious and professional manner that helped save me money and my sanity! Paul was fantastic to work with and I really felt like he had my best interest in mind. I could not be more grateful to both he and his assistant Shaylee for the great work they did! I would absolutely recommend him.

Paul helped rescue my daughter...
I am in the Air Force and stationed overseas. Through some shady dealings my daughter was forced to stay behind in the states with my ex wife. A couple of months after i left the country my ex ended up in alcohol rehab. Because of my military status and living overseas I had a short window of time to gain custody of my daughter. Paul seemingly to me dropped everything and helped me out because of the compressed time frame. I ended up with custody of my daughter and still have her safe with me to this day. I couldn't have asked for better, more personalized service than what Paul gave me.

Fantastic Lawyer
I can't recommend Paul highly enough. He represented me in my divorce and went above and beyond my expectations. His fee was extremely reasonable, and I've recommended him to friends and family who needed legal representation.
