Guy Anders, Family Law Client

When allegations were made to DSS regarding my husband and I, we were referred to BPW. There has not been a day that has passed in the now 2 year battle for my children where I didn’t thank God that we DID call not only an attorney but these wonderful women in particular. Sydney and Shannon guided us through this process with superb legal advice as well as genuine compassion and concern for our family. The level of attention they have given us surpassed even what I expected. You absolutely could not entrust your family to anyone more dedicated, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.
