When I knew it was time to file for divorce, I asked several friends for a referral. I interviewed three firms, and ultimately chose Hackett & Wine because during the initial consultation, I felt that Carrie Hackett was empathetic to my situation. She explained the process to me in layman's terms, then explained that Ashley Wine would be my main contact, but that they both work together on all cases. Once I met with Ashley, I felt very comfortable that she and Carrie would work together as my legal team, which turned out to be the case. Both were always up to date regarding the status of my case, and always filled in if the other was unavailable to address any need I had. Because it was such an emotional period of my life, both were compassionate, but reminded me to view the case as a financial transaction and to do my best to leave my emotions at the door anytime we went to court or mediation. This helped me to maintain a level head and let them guide me with their legal expertise. Both were responsive to my emails and phone calls, and always prepared me for what to expect at mediation and status conferences. I needed referrals for an insurance agent to provide me with healthcare, dental, and other policies as well as an accountant to provide information regarding how to structure a pension I would be receiving in the divorce. Hackett & Wine had a network of professionals to assist with those matters, which relieved me of the burden of searching on my own. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone.
Ashley Wine is an attorney well equipped to navigate the often testy waters of domestic litigation. Ms. Wine possesses the proper mix of intellectual "know how", compassionate understanding, and tenacity. These traits prove sure in helping arrive at satisfied closure of my long, unnecessarily contentious legitimation, custody, and child support case. I strongly recommend Ms. Wine if you are in need of a well qualified, domestic relations attorney.
Ashley is a very knowledgeable in child custody law!! My son needed an attorney to represent him in a highly contested child custody case. We met with 4 attorneys and my family felt that Ashley was the best fit. We worked with Ashley for 9 months and because of her deep understanding of child custody law, every alleged issue that was brought up the outcome was in our favor due to Ashley's deep understanding of child custody law.
We are very pleased with the outcome of the case and would recommend Ashley and use her services again if needed.
Being a young adult, I wasn't sure what to expect and have never dealth with legal issues. Not only was Ashley Wine very knowledgeable, but she made sure I understood everything that was going on and kept me well informed. She was very dedicated to my case. In the end, she met higher than my expectations and the outcome was better than I could have imagined. I would recommend Ashley Wine to anyone who wants a successful case because that is what she will provide. I couldn't speak any higher of Ms. Ashley Wine. She has helped me so much.
I hired Hackett & Wine for two civil cases. They charged a flat rate. On one case they never entered into the court that they represented me and failed to show up in court. On the other, they never resolved. They mishandled both cases, then tried to have me sign another agreement for more money to handle the first case after they dropped the ball. I spent over $3000 and ended up with nothing. This was a child/family case. The result devastated my children and disrupted their development. I've been working with the bar association to prevent these crooks from hurting other families.
Ashley was very empathetic and understood my situation in the first visit. She guided me with her full ability and is very trustworthy. Always was concerned about me and not focus on her fees and not at all money minded like other lawyers which I had past experience with.To deal with an over anxious person like me and calling her and sending her emails whenever which proves she has a lot of patience and time for every client.I would recommend her any given time. Due to her expertise I could wint he case without spending much money.
Ashley was fantastic at understanding exactly what I needed throughout this emotionally difficult time. Once I let her know I needed to take a step back and let her and Carrie "take the reins" they acted in my best interest while still keeping me in the loop. She was great at responding to every email and returning every call promptly. I couldn't have asked for a better team to get me through my divorce!
Ashley helped tremendously in easing the strain and difficulty of my divorce. I felt secure knowing that if there were any developments with my case, Ashley would let me know right away. She always returned my phone calls and answered my questions promptly. She understood the emotional roller coaster I was going through and was empathetic while always remaining professional. Divorce is not something that anyone wants to go through but having Ashley in my corner gave me a lot of comfort.
