They were extremely compassionate, caring, professional, personable, even though this case was so very traumatic to our family. They explained everything to us in detail so that we understood perfectly what was happening and what the next process needs to be without making us feel ignorant and or stupid because we didn’t have any legal background. They were absolutely wonderful I couldn’t imagine going through this with anyone else!
