Estate Dispute, Guardianship & Conservarorship
After I had discussed my case with several attorneys who each advised that they had little confidence that I would prevail litigating the estate issues that I faced, I hired Gary to represent me. He is a consummate professional. While others viewed it an impossible situation, Gary systematically looked at every possible contingency and developed alternative plans supported by his keen understanding of the law. I can't imagine going through a horrible situation without such a competent attorney. Gary is a great advocate; honest, exacting, knowledgeable, and intellectually gifted. A fantastic lawyer!

Guardianship/Custodianship
Gary made a very difficult situation much easier. Gary had the knowledge and expertise to help me understand what was happening at every step. He kept me well informed and was always very responsive to all my questions. I will always be thankful for his support during such a difficult and emotional time.

Guarduanship
Gary is an amazing attorney. He was actually referred to my family from a different attorney who does the same work. When the other attorney heard what we were trying to accomplish, he said we needed to call Gary because he is the best and he is absolutely correct! We were able to quickly get a guardian/conservator in place and he certainly turned a very difficult, stressful situation into a manageable one. He got things done with lightening speed as I'm sure this could been a long drawn out expensive case. It says a lot when another attorney will turn down business to refer you to best. You will not go wrong hiring Gary to represent you and we certainly appreciate and thank him for everything he has done.
