"Andrew Tank recently represented me in a Divorce/Child Custody case. I honestly can’t imagine having to have gone through the ordeal without Andy. He is incredibly knowledgeable, honest, and did everything in his power to provide a great outcome for me. Beyond that he is compassionate and understanding. His Paralegal Karen Kessel is outstanding. Her attention to detail and professionalism were instrumental in ensuring I had a fair resolution to my case. You can’t do better than Andy and Karen!" - John H.view client reviews
