After my ex-wife and I separated, I contacted Fred upon a referral from a relative. Being separated from my wife and facing a potential divorce was a most trying and emotional time for me. I had no real idea of what was involved in a divorce proceeding. Fred was very understanding and empathetic to my situation, provided me with sound advice, and helped me proceed one step at a time, recognizing that reconciliation with my wife was still a hope for me. When it was apparent that a divorce was going to be the outcome, Fred guided me through each step of the process. During the six months that I was separated from my wife, Fred provided me with wise counsel, fully explaining available options, in response to developing situations/difficult interactions with my wife that ensued. In following Fred's expert legal advice as we collaborated on the "Separation and Property Settlement Agreement", I was able to minimize the financial impact of the divorce proceeding. I highly recommend Fred if you find yourself in a situation where you are facing a potential divorce and need the legal services of someone you can trust and have full confidence in their legal expertise and advice. Fred and his team are consummate professionals.
