Warren Forest helped us successfully evict a tenant who had caused damage to our property. The tenant played every trick possible to delay the eviction. We became concerned with attorney fees and Warren Forest made everything right.

I have used Warren off and on for the last 2 years to represent me with a divorce and ongoing custody issues. Warren was honest, effective, and most of all he helped put my mind at ease during the most challenging years of my life. I knew that with a simple call he was there to support me. He always responded in a timely manner. He worked with me as a person and a client and delivered a result that was above expectations. In the months leading up to the first court hearing I was anxious and nervous. His truthful and kind words helped to put me at ease as much as humanly possible. After the hearing I was finally able to sleep again. He did the best thing I could ever ask for, helped me to keep custody of my child. Thank You!

I have retained attorneys in the past for both business and personal matters. Warren Forest and his assistant Terri are head and shoulders above everyone else. They are highly effective, keep in constant touch with me, totally ethical, solution-oriented, charge only the amount that is necessary, and always take the time to listen. I truly can't say enough about them. What a great team!
