National Client Testimonials


“Mark has always kept me updated as far as what needed to be accomplished and when. If I had any questions, he was quick with an email or phone call …”


“Heath came across to me as much more than an attorney. I could always tell Heath had my back, which is very very important to me. It  was also nice to see that Heath comes across as a fighter for what’s right! There were times Heath was clearly as upset, if not more than I was, by some of the stunts pulled by opposing party/counsel. I am very thankful for Heath’s wisdom as that kept me grounded at times. Heath did a great job. I am extremely happy with my experience with Heath. [My paralegal] was also very thorough and quick with responses. Having been a district manager, I  can really appreciate a thorough support staff. No one wins in a divorce, but its nice to have somebody on your side that was clearly so well liked and respected by his peers as you walked through the court house. Heath was my peripheral vision that kept me from getting blindsided. I would like to extend a huge thank you for everything Heath did for me!”


“Laura is just a complete professional. I never feel like she is talking down to me, and she explains everything so well. I don’t have any complaints whatsoever. She has been a pleasure to work with, and I appreciate what she is doing for me and my two kids. I’m very thankful.”
