"Cory was my attorney for a custody case that took over my world for almost 11 months. When we first met, I was a mom who was overwhelmed, emotional, scared, and clueless as to how things would end up, and I was way out of my league. He took my case pro bono, through a state service, and never once did I feel like I wasn’t a priority, or that because of this fact, did he do less for me than he would a regular client.Leeanna Marsh
He talked me off the proverbial ledge more times than I can count, and he shot me straight when I was being unreasonable. He did this with grace and compassion, and I couldn’t be more grateful. He was seriously my rock for the better part of a year, and I wouldn’t have made it through without him!
He was honest, fair, and realistic, and I still have my baby girl with me, despite being taken to court for unfounded full custody. He made me feel confident, and was far more than I could have ever asked for in a lawyer! I always felt like I had someone in my corner, and not just because he had to be, but because he actually understood and cared. The best interests of my child, as well as myself and her brother, were always put first.
Anyone seeking legal services in the family law department would be lucky to have him as their representation!"
