5 Stars

​”When I hired Deana I was really in a jam and she took the reigns and offered a path for a better outcome than I expected with tangible results. Due to Covid as well as my ex-wife and my own health issues, the divorce took longer than expected through no fault of Deana. In the end, the added time was a blessing because it allowed me to further distance myself in terms of a timeline from some personal issues I was dealing with when the divorce process began. I’d hire her again in a heartbeat. She is awesome in the courtroom and really pinned my ex-wife down on some issues.”


5 Stars

“Deana is awesome! Deana is a fantastic lawyer. I appreciate her straight and honest advice. She doesn’t waste time, efforts and money. I will absolutely use her anytime I need legal representation.”
