I thought I could handle my divorce by completing all my forms on my own. Well, I was wrong and the courts couldn't tell me what I did wrong. After 2 years of going back and forth trying to figure out what I did wrong, I decided to hand it over to a professional/lawyer. I found John on a Google search. I was able to get an appointment right away with him. He was able to work around my schedule. John took control of everything and and within 3 weeks my divorce was completed. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family Joanna Kane
