"By the time I opened Wakenight & Associates, P.C. in 2001 it was clear that if I wanted to improve as a divorce lawyer, I had to focus entirely on divorce law. I could not hope to become a good divorce lawyer by handling other types of cases." "As my divorce and family law business grew, I soon had more clients and I began to hire like-minded Associates. This made the process better still, because we exchange ideas, strategies, and information with each other and my office has been thriving ever since."

Thank you for visiting my profile.
