“Gary is a very practical lawyer. He does what it takes to get the job done as efficiently and as cost-effectively as possible. I found Gary to be very level-headed, fair-minded, diligent and knowledgeable. I learned to value all these traits in Gary while he led me through the difficult process of divorce. We worked as a team, he made sure I was educated, and then we made important decisions together, which I really appreciated.” Kirt P. – 12/14/2009
