“I was nervous going into my consultation with Dustin. I generally felt I was in over my head with this divorce and I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to discuss anything specific. However by the time we wrapped I believe the expense will have been one of my best investments to date! I feel like I’ve regained control and focus proceeding with the divorce and his advice was directly applicable to my case. I look forward to working with him as this develops!”

— L. G. S.
