I would like to let you know how much your firm helped with my divorce last year. Allison and the entire staff made what was the most difficult time in our lives so much easier. My ex-husband and I are able to be friends and now with a grandchild on the way, I can’t begin to tell you how nice that is. Again, I can’t thank you enough for all that Divorce Helpline did for me. I look forward to hearing from you.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your legal advice. You helped in not only clarifying some legal issues, but also explained how to communicate with my ex-husband in such a manner as to keep him from shutting down or getting defensive.
We were on the “fast track” and boy was it fast. Worth every penny! Start to finish (Judgment) was about eight weeks! Everybody on your staff was delightful! RESTORED MY FAITH IN LAWYERS.
I ended up with full physical custody, and girlfriend is not allowed access to my son in any way. I really have you to thank for this. I gave your ideas to my lawyer. I’m still a bit shocked that it worked out so well.
