"In a time where I felt like I was truly in a bind, Attorney Mayo not only helped me seek out justice through the family court but his services helped me with my family. I was so impressed with his exquisite ability to apply each detail and conflict I had with a correlating court case that it was obvious the amount of time and energy he put into my case.  Attorney Mayo was always a phone call or email away and his advice was always appreciated.  If I ever need any legal assistance in the future, I will definitely be returning to him."
- Shaun F.

"Going through a divorce let alone a high conflict divorce, can be more than overwhelming at times. Before I found Abrams Law Firm, I had been to two other law firms, and was making no progress, and feeling extremely stressed. Then a friend referred me to Vincent Mayo at Abrams Law Firm. I went to a consultation that week and was so relieved and impressed at all of questions and solutions I was getting just from the initial consultation. I ended up signing with the Firm that very day and my entire case took a turn for the best! I started to feel immediate relief and validation from all of their hard work on my case and most importantly their knowledge of what needs to be done specifically in each different situation. Once my case was in Abram's Law Firm's hands, I didn't have to constantly worry or stress, because I knew someone was fighting hard for me and my children!  Finding the right Law Firm for a divorce is crucial and I am so grateful for finding this firm! And I know my children are grateful as well."
