Client Testimonials


“My case is a modification so I’ve worked with attorneys in the past. The best thing about working with [my attorney] is that while she’s still giving legal advice, it never feels like I’m dealing with a lawyer. She’s just a normal person and it makes the process very comfortable.”


“Sam was great. I really enjoyed working with him. I was really happy with him overall, and I think he’s a great attorney. He was very personable, so I always felt very comfortable with him.”


“Erica was VERY helpful to us during a very stressful time, including communicating with us outside normal business hours when we know she was also a new parent and moving. We had lost hope of ever seeing our granddaughter and she gave us reasons to continue. She had to deal with an unreasonable adversary on our behalf. We really appreciate her help.”
