Great attorney sure did a fantastic job on my divorce HIGHLY RECOMMEND
As it was a long road, the outcome was what it should have been. 50/50 should be the starting point of a divorce when kids are involved, not something parents should have to fight for. Thanks Sandy & Roy for everything!
There is not enough space to accurately give justice to the gratefulness I have for Mr. Sabuco and his staff. So let me just say – I am grateful for the small things, big things and everything in between.
