Greak Yakima attorney.
He is very knowledgeable about family law and knows the ins and outs of the court system in Yakima very well. He is to the point and usually can get things accomplished without heated difficulties with other attorneys. But, when that is not possible, he is able to present clear, concise arguments resulting in success in court. He is also very straightforward with his billing-There are no misunderstandings. His staff are on top of their game. I am very pleased.
