"Our Firm--BDG-- has relied on Terry Boyle for more than 15 years. The issues have varied from tax strategies, to criminal activity...from estate planning to employment issues....and an array of issues in between.  Terry has been the ideal legal partner for our business.  He has been nothing short of fantastic in terms of common sense, shared vision of win-win outcomes and honest "caring"....We have dealt with other firms, but none "get it" like Terry and his team."

-- Jeffrey Horn, Business Development Group, Inc.

There are many firms that are the “best money can buy” type firms. When the chips are down, I want a firm that will understand my position, assess the opposition’s position and advise me as to the best way through the maze. I do not want to have to worry about whether I am getting the time and attention I deserve. I want access to the best lawyer for my issue and I do not want to be handed off to a junior or a procession of other lawyers because of the law firm’s caseload. Over the seven plus years I have worked with Boyle/Apelman, I have always had immediate access to the very best lawyers when I need them. When I needed him, Terry was on an airplane to meet with me even though it was the two days before Christmas. They provided not only great legal service, but they were there for me in a very difficult time.
