Testimonial #1

"I have nothing but praise for Mike Devlin. Mike brought to my case a scholarly approach. He was able to look both at the fine details as well as the broader view of a very complex family matter.

Mike was always patient with my requests, never failed to take my calls (or ring me back quickly if he was not available immediately) and always sought to explain the legal proceedings in straightforward and accurate manner.

As a result of Mike's highly focussed and diligent efforts he was able to achieve more in two months than what my previous law firm completely failed to do in two years. Mike won the case, and as a result gave me immense peace of mind.”
