"Hank is, quite simply, an outstanding attorney. He listened carefully, asked questions and was in full command of the facts of my situation so that he could effectively represent me. He helped me understand the process at every step and truly cared about the outcome of my case. He advocated for my rights and for the rights of my child and was focused and determined, which helped to keep me focused and determined, as well.
