I had the pleasure of working with Blake as my Family Law attorney for 3+ years. Blake was instrumental in guiding me through a very complex divorce and custody battle with a successful outcome. He kept me informed during the entire process and ensured that I fully understood my options at all times. I have recommended Blake to friends and he would be my first choice should I need to hire a Family Law attorney again.

I found Blake through word of mouth where he came highly recommended. From the first day we met to go over my case, it was clear he really knew what he was doing. He is really good with details and quick to devise a plan. While something I would never want to experience again, he made the process the best he possibly could while constantly finding a way to get the best outcome.
Throughout my case Blake and his team was readily available to answer questions via email and phone. He demonstrated to me throughout the case why he came highly recommended, and I echo what those said before me. Blake is great at his job and won't let you down!

I have worked with Blake in both settlement and post-settlement cases. My initial settlement was over a year of high conflict and Blake was able to wade through the drama and get our case successfully mediated. A post settlement case that was another year long high conflict fueled with many false allegations, Blake was able to successfully settle between the attorney's. I absolutely would hire Blake again if the need came. He was always familiar with my case and the details, I always felt like he 'had my back' and his knowledge and confidence provided me ease through these difficult times.

It's no accident that Blake is a well-respected member of the family law bar and a successful practitioner. He's thoughtful, compassionate, and hardworking. Clients and fellow attorneys alike share in their respect for Blake and his work. That's a rare skill to possess in this area of the law. But Blake really is that good.
