“Kyle Piro provided me with excellent representation when I needed it the most! He is a consummate professional who was always extremely well prepared and effective… He did so in a conscience and kind manner handling my often difficult spouse extremely effectively. He consistently worked his tail off on my behalf throughout my highly contentious and complicated divorce. His hard work and extensive preparation made a huge difference in the outcome of my case… Thank you Kyle!” – Y.
“An attorney, who did not handle divorce cases, originally referred me to Kyle; which by itself is a testament to Kyle’s ability and reputation. I soon learned that his reputation is well deserved. Kyle was competent, well versed in the law, and consistently offered ideas to help conserve assets and minimize my cost throughout the process. He listened to my concerns, yet kept our conversations focused, and helped me eliminate issues that were irrelevant to the case. I highly recommend Kyle, who was quite skilled at helping me achieve an acceptable outcome from an otherwise intensely unpleasant circumstance.” – M.
