I came to Divorce Matters in desperation. My divorce had taken an unexpected turn and made for a challenging child custody situation. Conor Stewartson was incredible!! He was smart, sympathetic and very knowledgeable about divorce proceedings. He even instructed the magistrate on filings she was unaware of! I was a bit worried about the retainer, but you get what you pay for, and in this instance, I paid for my kids. It was well worth it! Divorce Matters will always get a recommendation from me concerning family law cases!
