"I thank you so much for getting us through it.....................I really appreciate the humane but business like approach you both used and I can now move on with my life as a result." -Eric D., Mediation Client, Oceanside, CA
"Thomas & Tammy worked with my ex-husband and I extremely well throughout our divorce process. We went to them after another lawyer proved to be very difficult to work with. They set a baseline of mutual respect and "putting the kids first" for us. This mentality has served us all well for 4 years now. Thanks Thomas & Tammy!"
