    Perry and staff were extremely kind and helpful in my recent divorce. It was a time in my life with many difficulties of health and a very toxic marriage. I was treated friendly and with respect. It meant a lot to me to be treated so in such a messy time. I highly recommend Shiltz and Setlak. I'm still in awe at how calmly and professionally Perry handled my case. Perry is a great problem solver and quick on finding a fair resolution with a father like approach. The staff are also impressive!!

    I was under the impression my case would prove to be long and exhaustive. Perry and his knowledgeable team far exceeded me and my children's needs, and wrapped up the case in under six months. Perry is not your typical family law lawyer. He took the time to understand the details of my case showing compassion and understanding. He handled all details and proved why his name is well known in his field. I am grateful for his years of experience and kindness.
