    Mr. Petroske is a compassionate, ethical, hard working, fair and honest attorney who is serious about his work and fights hard for his clients. Professional and knowledgeable at all times, Cliff strategically, fearlessly, and boldly represented me. I knew after my first day in court that I was in good hands. Fully prepared, Mr. Petroske was relentlessly persistent for an outcome that was best for my daughter. I will forever be grateful and feel blessed to have found Clifford Petroske.
