You can't go wrong working with Don.
Don helped me through a very difficult year long situation. During the process he was responsive, fair, compassionate and passionate about fighting for me. At the end I no longer needed his service because we reconciled and even though that meant I didn't need his services anymore he was genuinely happy for my family. This was true reflection that he puts his clients family ahead of his own interest. Couldn't have asked for more.
