I'm not one to post a review, but in this case I could not resist! Penny went above and beyond representing my Family Law issue. My past Divorce Attorney let issues between me and my (now ex) spouse go unresolved, causing me to have to spend a lot of $$$ JUST to move forward with the Divorce. Because of this, I'm very hesitant in hiring a lawyer. When I first met Penny, she was very professional and straightforward - not trying to make promises that were unrealistic. In fact during Mediation, Penny went above and beyond to neutralize the situation and explained in a honest and fair way to both of us during Mediation. Every time I emailed or called, she responded in an expedient manner. In fact, I knew if she was in the office, she would answer my call herself - how convenient - no phone tag!!! She explained every step very clearly and when we asked for suggestions, she was quick to suggest something we both immediately agreed upon despite our past experiences!! We left the Mediation with an agreement we were both equally satisfied with and prevented a long dragged out mess!! A good lawyer is a rare find - I would definitely recommend Penny!!
I am well versed with attorneys, I have retained or been assigned over 7 lawyers for various legal matters. She made a horrible mistake, after I requested her as my attorney, she ask my ex-wife at her office if she wants to do mediation. In no uncertain terms did I ever mention this to her on our numerous phone calls. In fact in one of our phone calls, Penny asked me if I have ever done mediation, I told her yes. I had used Divorce Without War and it had cost me $1200( negotiations broke down) for one hour. That it was a waste.
In all fairness Penny fields her own phone calls and has a lot on her plate. She probably doesn't remember who she talks to about what.
I hired Penny to handle my divorce. Penny was always courteous and straight forward , which I prefer. Penny would always give me a straight answer for any of my questions and she is very honest about her answers. She was able to take care of my divorce through mediation and helped save some money. After my divorce, Penny handled my Last will and testament, living will, power of attorney and health care proxy. I would definitely recommend Penny to anyone in need of an attorney.
Penny is an outstanding attorney. I am a soldier in the army and truly appreciated the service Penny provided for my family and myself she was truly a God send. If you need legal representation look no Fugger then Penny.
Penny is friendly, detail oriented, knowledgable, and aggressive. She is just what you need in a divorce or custody fight. She is always better prepared then the other side and is quick to advise you on all of your options as well as give you her professional input, based on many years of experience, which options have the best chance of accomplishing your goals. She will also have a frank and honest discussion with you of the probable cost involved with each option. I highly recommend Penny without any reserve and I am also an attorney so I do not recommend an attorney lightly, but for my divorce and custody issues, I turned to Penny.
I happen to have the pleasure of not only sharing office space with this attorney but also hired her to handle an unpleasant personal (legal) matter for me. Penny is smart, strong, thorough, considerate with her rates/hours and knows the law. I know I'm in good hands with her representation and would highly recommend her.
