THANKSGIVING MESSAGE
FROM THE BKR FAMILY GROUP

As we go through our daily routines and challenges of practicing family law, we often fail to pay attention to the many blessings in our lives. In this month, where we celebrate a day of Thanksgiving, we want to take a moment to remember those for which we are thankful-our clients, our co-workers, and our families. No matter how you celebrate Thanksgiving, we hope it’s a day full of reflection and love.
