    "I really want to thank the both of you for all your help. You were so instrumental in getting me through this process. And to be honest, I’m really glad I hired women! Not only were you guys knowledgeable but you were also great for emotional support! Kristine, you were a rock star yesterday. And what I appreciated the most is that you didn’t instigate. You truly wanted us to come to a compromise. Divorce lawyers have this horrible reputation of trying to cause discord between their clients so they can rack up the fee’s. You both were so supportive in trying to push this process along so it didn’t turn into a huge court battle.
    You guys are great. I can’t thank you enough. I’m so happy it’s OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    "Through all of this, I have been so incredibly grateful for your responsiveness, for your obvious attention to the details of our situation and for you keeping me informed as things have progressed. All of those things have made an unpleasant and stressful situation much easier to bear. Most importantly, you will never fully know what you have done for my daughter. I can't stop thinking about how your efforts on our behalf have changed the quality of life for both me and my daughter. You have affected both our present and our future. I truly hope that the two of you do not lose sight of the fact that what you do has that power. I hope that your clients remind you often of how you have helped them and of how much they appreciate your efforts to do so. In closing, please know that tomorrow will be the best Mother's Day that I will have had in many years. I am deeply grateful to both of you for that. Thank you for everything you have done for us. "

They are exceptional listeners, gifted attorneys, and cost sensitive planners. We are always pleased at the depth and the breadth of their collective abilities and knowledge of the law."
