Client Review


"The attorney assigned to my case was absolutely exceptional. He was professional, respectful, always supported my decisions and made sure that I understood things 100%. He stood by me through some very hard times and always made sure that I was completely comfortable with what I was doing, and confident in my decisions. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the way he conducted himself. He treated me with the utmost respect. He responded to every email and phone call within minutes, and never made me feel like I was bothering him. Going through Family Court was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do in my life. There is no other person that I would have rather had by my side than my HCBF attorney. I was very happy with the outcome. I would highly recommend the Harford County Bar Foundation's Judicare Program."
