Have ongoing custody challenges for seven years. I wish i had known grant at the start. My last issue could have lasted another year and he resolved it in two weeks!

Grant Dickinson
Mr Dickinson and his office were amazing! I am embarrassed to say it was shocking what an emotional time this was for me. I felt like I had no control of what was happening to me and my daughter, and how to best save my future. Grant made me feel like he truly cared what happened to me and my daughter. He gave me good advice - and listened patiently while I sometimes disagreed. He is knowledgeable and kind, he is not about the all mighty dollar. His office staff are amazing, I called and went in more then should be permitted. They always treated me with kindness and respect. I am forever grateful to all of them.
