Many thanks to Steve Klotz for helping me fight for custody of my son. My ex-husband pulled every trick in the book but we prevailed. Thank you again.

Child Custody

Melody M.

Parker Herring hit the ground running for us. Our birth mother decided on adoption the day our baby was born. We called Parker and immediately she resolved several potential problems. She worked around the clock to make sure our adoption went as smoothly as possible. We wouldn’t have our precious Sadie now if it hadn’t been for Parker.


Tom & Sarah D.

I never got to thank Bobby Mills for making the adoption placement of my daughter so … graceful.
