    I endorse this lawyer. Ms. Dow is one tough cookie. We've had several rather challenging matters against each other- and she has shown herself to be a real master of her profession.

    Mrs. Dow is a great attorney. I have represented a number of her family law clients who were arrested for violations of orders of protections. Each and everyone of the clients raved about how great of an attorney she is. Not one person said a bad thing about her. Furthermore, I have referred a number of my clients that had family problems and her representation of them was second to none. Mrs. Dow is a great attorney and I highly recommend her services.
