Phil had handled the divorce cases for 2 close friends.  They recommended him when it came time for me to file for my divorce.

 

Phil did an amazing job handling my divorce.  My case was complex due to my job and investments.  Phil made himself available to discuss the valuation issues and provide honest and thoughtful feedback to my concerns.  He had me prepared and helped me have realistic expectations.

 

He got mediation scheduled promptly and counseled me to do the things I needed to do to get my case settled as quickly as possible.

He handled the mediation of my case like a pro and got what I believe was a just and fair settlement given the complexity of the case. 

 

His assistant Julie Ennis was on top of things and helped coach me through the financial disclosures.  She is very efficient, and we did not waste time or legal fees.  Julie is GREAT!!!

 

I settled my divorce in approximately 90 days (the allowable minimum wait) and now I am free to move forward with the rest of my life.
