In contested divorces it is important to promptly consult with an experienced divorce lawyer. It is always best to use a divorce attorney who will try to amicably settle your case, but is prepared and able to litigate.
Jeff represented me through seven years of protracted trial and appellate court litigation. Despite my former spouse’s litigious demeanor, and the ten plus attorneys engaged during the divorce proceedings, Jeff legal skills and courtroom experience prevailed. I ultimately secured an equitable custody and property settlement. P.D.
Jeff has been my attorney for over 20 years. He has represented me in 2 divorces, and numerous family matters in Court, including Order for Protection matters. He is very experienced in the Court room. He has saved me a lot of money by understanding the laws. I would highly refer anyone to his office. T.C.
