Not only was every employee supportive and there when time was of the essence, but the entire staff is so knowledgeable that I couldn't help but feel comfortable. Now, when I walk through the door, I feel like a member of the family. My divorce is drawing to an end, and I can honestly say that as wonderful as Attorney Doud is to me, he is incredibly skilled at dealing with the opposing attorney. I know he has my best interests at heart, and I know that he knows the law and the courtroom. Thank you, Attorney Doud, Kim, and Jucunda for making me feel like a part of the family while being extremely skilled at handling my divorce.
