Best Choice I Ever Made I was going through a very bitter separation after being married 29 years. My husband left me and withdrew all financial support, stopped making the house payment in an effort to start the foreclosure process and have me end up homeless. He actually told Mr. Dean he thought I should find family or friends to live with so that our house could be sold and he could have his $. This was despite the fact that he had another home free and clear and an income of nearly $50,000. a year which was all wrapped up in trust accounts that I was not legally entitled to. My situation seemed hopeless and I knew I needed a really good attorney to get through this. I looked for 2 months before coming across William Dean's profile which impressed me immediately as he had been a Jag attorney, and I had always heard they were the best of the best. I filled out an on line form and he called me within minutes of hitting send. He zeroed in on my situation and starting forming a strategy after just five minutes on the phone. It was a difficult process and I was battling daily incidents of sabotage and revenge that my husband perpetrated because I had hired an attorney. I was a difficult client, questioning everything because I had major trust issues after what I had been through for the last decade, but William was so patient and took much time to explain everything to me. He had my husband Greg's # and knew exactly what he was doing. He was able to get so much information from him by treating him like a friend and just letting him talk. William is very cunning in a kind and friendly way that completely put Greg at ease. I didn't really understand why William was speaking to my husband so often it made me nervous, but William is so experienced with getting information he got exactly what he needed. William somehow miraculously got the house for me for the rest of my life! I don't know how he was able to do it, as Greg had been so determined to get me out that seemed his entire focus. I now get to stay in my beautiful home in Hawaii where I had a very successful business since 2012 and live in comfort. I can continue to earn an excellent living, be my own boss, make my own schedule and enjoy the rewards of my hard work. Best of all I can do it without an abusive bully terrorizing me every day of my life. I owe everything to this wonderful attorney and dear friend who literally saved my life. I highly recommend William Dean to anyone who feels overwhelmed and hopeless as I had. I call him my gladiator, he really did battle for me and he will for you too.
