"There's no cookie-cutter custody case. I am not an attorney who just looks at the paperwork and goes from there. I want to know the client and find out what they want and need from the case. I'm compassionate and I connect with my clients on a personal level." Elizabeth J. McInturff
"Well before my first day of law school, I knew I wanted to be a business attorney. For me, there is no greater feeling of satisfaction than seeing my client's business thrive and knowing that I am part of that success." Jerry D Miller

"When a client is out of work and needs medical care, she or he has a lot of questions and worries. We get our clients the answers they need and they know that we are with them the whole way." Barbara Gilmore
"There's a lot of emotion involved in estate planning and probate matters. I'm often meeting my clients when they've just lost a loved one, or when family infighting is coming to a head.

"Few life experiences are more stressful or destabilizing than a divorce.

"We take cases where the law is difficult or unresolved. We find creative solutions for our clients. If that means a difficult set of facts, we will try the case.
