I appreciate you have taken extra time for this extended hearing. First and foremost, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  You did a fab job, given the circumstances. You were THE team to go with and bring it home). Thank you.


This is amazing, I have so much appreciation for you guys and what you do! ! !


This is wonderful news! Thank you again to you and your whole team. I know this was not easy and in the end honesty and hard work prevailed. I will always be indebted to all of you and will forever be grateful that my kids and I will never have to worry.


I wanted to re thank you for today. You did an amazing job and I feel a bit normal for the first time in over 2 years

Thank You & very appreciated


Thank you all so much for the time and attention you provided in helping corral this divorce into a final settlement. I'm so relieved to have this process done and over with and appreciate how focused and forward-thinking you all were. Stephen was particularly instrumental on that last day when I went in and expected nothing would be accomplished (on their end) and turned it all around. I was really impressed. Michael, you have an excellent team. Thank you again and if I can send any positive referrals or reviews your way please let me know. 


The day you so kindly agreed to meet me at 4 pm on a Friday before your family holiday was life altering. You also made me feel better and to have courage to pursue what’s right. I will never forget that day. I am forever indebted to you and Stephen. The impact of your work has changed the direction of my families life. I hope you both know what a real contribution you are making to society.


I wanted to just take a moment and thank you both for all the hard work you put into this trial. Your hard work has given the children and I a fighting chance at a future that they deserve to have. Whatever the outcome I will be eternally grateful that we had you both on our side. Thank you both and have a wonderful evening.

Many thanks, K.

I can't tell you both just how invaluable your presentation was! It can be such dangerous ground for mediators to venture into, especially if they do not have a family law background, so highlighting the very crucial elements to establishing an unjust enrichment claim and describing how difficult and fact-based it is to justify a remedial constructive trust was very helpful for the family dispute professionals in the room to hear. I am so grateful that you were both able to be a part of this year's conference, especially given your schedules. It was a great presentation and I hope we can work together in the future.

FDRIO Conference

I honestly can’t find the words to thank you all for the work you put into my case. Because of you all and your determination to fight for me and my daughter we achieved what I thought was impossible. It’s because of your hard work, brains, attention to detail, and care for me and my cause that we got here. Thank you so much for everything and you guys will forever hold a place in my heart for helping me through the most difficult time of my life. I'm truly blessed to have you guys on my side, I love you guys.


Dear Michael and Stephen
I continue to replay yesterday in my head and am increasingly satisfied that it was a great and unequivocal win. You guys were truly fantastic in extracting the truth.
