I. K. February 11, 2022
Oustanding Laywer I consulted with Mr. Santiago for a case child custody case that was improperly filed in Puerto Rico due to lack of jursidiction. I specifically chose him because he was experienced in interstate removal of children and the Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act. After my consultation, I hired him because I knew his knowledge in this field was unmatched. He took the proper legal steps to help me get the resolution that I was seeking. His advice and the way he handled the case is what made the difference. He responded to my comments in a timely manner, and was always redy to help me. If you are in the unfortuate situation of child custody issues, I would highly recommend Mr. Santiago. Thank you for a job well done.
