I have been a client of Borden Family Lawyers in excess of six years and can honestly say that it was the best phone call I made when I decided to separate from my ex-wife. This group goes above and beyond and has never steered me in the wrong direction or ill advised me during the many difficult situations I have faced. They have been able to keep me grounded and I feel they have truly fought for not only me, but for my children. One thing they strive on is going into court with a clean slate and that has always served me well.

Mark Borden has been fantastic at presenting my case and can explain everything so I can understand what is going on without getting too technical. I have full trust in his ability to litigate and know that he has done everything he possibly can for me and my family Kerry Nesbitt has been there through the entire process with me and has an ability to keep me calm and relaxed in stressful situations while being straight forward and completely objective. I believe in her ability to prepare the case for me while making sure I know any risks etc., associated with our case. If you have any family law situations, I strongly encourage you to contact Borden Family Lawyers. They have never disappointed me in any way!! – Chris
