I hired this firm for my divorce/custody case. I was given terrible advice (I was told I could only get full custody of my 2 children in the fall if I asked for 40% in the summer. This turned out to be awful advice and I'm now having to start from scratch with another lawyer. I was double charged for a second attorney who never said a word in court. 15K was blown through in 3 months. Mine and my children's lives are in complete chaos because of this firm. I highly discourage anyone in a family law matter from retaining anyone from this firm.

This firm does not listen to their clients. They charge outrageous fees. I lost my house because of this firm and their lackluster performance. They are a cookie-cutter firm so don't expect too much except a big bill.

I asked to hire her for my divorce case because of her decades of experience, but she said that she worked as a "team" with an inexperienced, junior lawyer (yet who charged almost as much as her - $300/hr vs. $375/hr), claiming that I would be getting 2 lawyers without being "double-charged". Subsequently, however, I seldom heard from her again, and she generally ignored my e-mailed questions unless I asked the other lawyer to talk to her about them. Only the junior lawyer handled my case. At one point, when I arranged a meeting with her and asked her point-blank if she would at least be present for court appearances, she wouldn't even commit to that. To add grievous insult to injury,the junior lawyer wasn't at all responsive to me, so I asked Linda to represent me solely, but she refused, and instead angrily rejected my legitimate criticism of her associate.
