The BEST
I used Mr. Batholomew for a collaborative divorce. Because of the expertise of him and his staff, the process worked well. I don't think any other type of divorce would have been successful. They did an excellent job of keeping us informed and showed compassion and understanding as well as expert knowledge of our situation. I highly recommend Mr. Bartholomew for your legal, particularly divorce, needs.
