See What Our Clients Have to Say

“Divorce and custody cases are emotional, stressful, and generally quite financially burdensome. Tony really helped me to understand all viewpoints in my case, helped to keep emotions under control, and was able to make quick decisions while in the courtroom. Most of all, his services were reasonable and he helped me to financially plan throughout the process.

He also was able to refine ambiguous language in our documents and filings to ensure they were clear and easily understood by all parties. He really is one of the “good guys” – he will fight for the best interests of the children and isn’t blindly one-sided. You will not go wrong hiring hiring his firm to represent you. I know where I will turn if I need an attorney in the future.”

– Kris H.

After digging through some of my papers, I came across my will and realized it was quite out of date. I delivered my current will to Tony, and we discussed some of the changes I wanted to have made. He advised me on the best way to structure the will and then had it done in no time. He was efficient and not costly. I felt much better knowing that I had things in order in case something were to happen to me. Thank you Tony!

– Eileen T.

Tony responded quickly, and his work was very effective. I would and have recommended him to friends and family.

– David V.

Tony provided excellent service for my legal needs. He explained things thoroughly, was patient with my many questions, and succeeded in delivering the settlement I expected. Thanks, Tony, for your great work!

– Joanne K.

I first met Tony at a networking group and I could immediately tell he had an immense passion for his clients and career. The more I got to know Tony the more I knew he’d be the first people I would call if I ever had any legal questions or concerns. So when it came time to need a lawyer to help with some legal questions, Tony was the obvious choice. His response was quick and thorough and he made all of the legal terminology so easy to understand. Integrity is important in the legal field and Tony is nothing short of that.
