After loosing my case with a different law office, I came to Charles Gunther emotional, afraid, and my life completely turned upside down. Not only did he get me primary legal and sole physical custody, he gave me hope in the legal system. He was always honest, direct and completely understanding of my situation. He would respond quickly and accordingly to every question. He makes his presence known in the courtroom and is very knowledgeable in family law. I will forever stand behind my 5 star review of him as my attorney.
