Kirk Stange - NA Top 100 President

"Throughout my legal career, I have always prided myself on providing competent and zealous advocacy for my clients who are facing difficult divorce and other family law matters. These clients are often vulnerable and having compassionate and caring representation on their side can make all of the difference in the end.

I am privileged and honored to be named the president of an organization that takes pride in providing that same zealous advocacy for their clients. I look forward to our journey together in 2023."
