Penny was the secret weapon we had been searching for. She made all the cumbersome processes seem simple. After not seeing my 11 year old son for no apparent reason, my wife and I had decided to file for primary custody. After hearing our story, Penny quickly explained the alternative routes and the agenda we would take to get him. She was always available when we needed her. You don't recieve the voicemail and no response method. She really paid attention to the details and gave us the feeling we were her only case. She even went as far as to meet with our family for dinner to make the kids feel comfortable with the process. Penny's professionalism and attack methods in the court room are second to none. Things had been presented that had left me anxious. Penny had no problem with any of it, combating it all along the way. She was absolutely amazing. There is no simpler way to express it. Whenever a situation would arise she would remain focused and make us feel relaxed. She never faltered from her oringinal stance, "You will get to see Austin more." And that is where we are today. We cannot express in words how grateful we all are to have been represented by "Mrs. Determination". Penny, thanks for everything; you're the best!

This has been my first experience with Attorney Ayers. After using another attorney's services (which was less than satisfactory) for over two months, I took my co-workers' advice and contacted Attorney Ayers. She managed to resolve my wife's custody matter in a fraction of the time I gave my previous attorney and was not only professional the entire time, but also kept me informed with updates. This has been the best overall experience I have ever had with an attorney and will certainly be requesting her services if ever the need arises in the future.

My case was a domestics NFOB case. In short this means that domestics had concluded that it was impossible for my daughterâ€™s father to pay his child support due to medical reasons. This meant that my owed arrears were dropped and he would no longer be financially responsible for his daughter in the future. I knew that he was lying about his disability and he was making money under the table but had little to no proof I could use in court. After 2 failed attempts with average attorneys I went out looking for a great attorney. The only thing I had on my side at this moment was the truth and a determination to prove it. I started asking people I knew and most had similar experiences to mine. All but one! A friend of mine had used Penny Ayers for her divorce and could not say enough about her. So I made an appointment immediately. Within a few minutes of sitting in her office I knew she was not average at all. In my opinion Penny Ayers is the kind of attorney we idealize them all to be, the kind who believes in right and wrong, justice and punishment and is ready, able and willing to help you fight for it. My case was not ideal for an attorney and my daughterâ€™s father knows how to play the system for all it is worth. In our first meeting Penny spent the time needed to fully understand my situation. She asked questions that let me know she had listened to everything I said and was already working on a strategy. By the end of our first meeting she had earned my respect and I trusted that she would do the best she could with what she had. I was trying to gather evidence to prove that my daughterâ€™s father was working. This did not go well for me. As court was getting closer and still no evidence I thought it was just going to be a repeat of my last two attempts. At this point Penny spent some time on the phone with me going over all the details again and trying to find an alternate strategy since I had failed to get the evidence needed to prove he was working under the table. Penny picked up on a few discrepancies with paper work and insisted new paper work be handed in to the court. I would like to add that myself, 3 judges, 2 other attorneys and 2 or 3 employees at domestics missed the discrepancies that Penny Ayers found. We went to court 2, maybe 3 times trying to get my daughterâ€™s father to hand in the correct paper work she requested. She followed up behind the scenes checking with the various organizations and doctors to see if he was attempting to get this paperwork filled out and ready for court. She kept me updated with every step she had taken and what the results of each step were and what that meant for our case. By the time it was all said and done he was unable to turn in the correct paperwork and the NFOB was lifted and I did get a portion of the owed arrears back on the books and my daughterâ€™s father is once again financially responsible for his daughter. In my opinion Penny Ayers is a great attorney who has genuine interest and an acute attention to detail, she is intelligent, honest, compassionate and gets results. These are rare qualities for anyone in my opinion and to find them in a lawyer is uplifting.
