A few words from our former clients...

Linda helped me immensely! She worked diligently and zealously to help me achieve the best possible outcome. Her knowledge and expertise was a true gift. She helped me to navigate through all of the negativity my former spouse consistently attempted to throw at me. Additionally, she was wise in her counsel and helped me understand the importance staying focused on the tasks as opposed to succumbing to the emotionally charged attacks. If you need a fierce advocate who will protect you on all fronts, hire her immediately.

Linda was highly recommended to me from a former colleague and I am happy that I stayed with her recommendation. Linda is professional, knowledgeable, compassionate yet firm. Linda is at her best in the court room, very impressive. She has helped me through one of the hardest times of my life and continues to be a support and advocate for us. Nathan, her legal assistant, is always pleasant to talk to and helpful as well.

As anyone dealing with divorce and custody issues knows, this can be an incredibly stressful time. Linda's calm demeanor really helped settle me during the process. She kept me informed about each step along the way, as well as counseled me through it. She used her years of experience to make recommendations saying, "I can't tell you what to do, but ..." It was empowering to have her expertise in my corner.

Because my ex-husband is not an easy man to deal with, we had to go back multiple times. I made the mistake (due to financial struggles) of using a friend rather than retaining Linda's services for one of our court battles. It ended terribly! Thankfully, I was able to hire Linda to come back in and fix what my "friend" had done. She was able to reach a settlement with my difficult ex-husband out of court - which ended up saving me money!

Overall, my experience with Linda has been awesome. Although, I hope to not need her services again, if I do, I will not hesitate to call her.
