Client Testimonials


“Dorothy is great at responding within the hour when I have a question. I really feel she is doing a great job and has been wonderful. We had mediation where attorney’s don’t typically sit in, but Dorothy was there to keep things under control.”


“I’m super impressed with you guys. We’ve had a number of lawyers. [My attorney] and the firm are fantastic!”


“Walking into this process I was very unsure, overwhelmed and had a lot of anxiety. Then whole staff has been amazing. They have lowered my anxiety level and really helped make this process as pleasant as it can be. Whitney has gone above and beyond for me, and I’m very pleased with everything. She has always gotten back to me in a timely fashion and I never have to call or email her to know what is going on because she keeps so well informed. She has challenged me on things to provide me with the best possible outcome. “
