    • I recommend Virginia Poynter.

    As an attorney, I appreciate good lawyering. When I needed legal counsel, I made one phone call. Ms. Poynter was able to work me into her schedule quickly, and took the time to allow me a thorough, non-hurried consultation. After listening, really listening, to the problem, she provided me with knowledgeable advice, and she recommended what steps to take next.

    With the situation concluded, I can say that the entire process went more smoothly thanks to Ms. Poynter's assistance and counsel. Her advice proved to be spot-on. Almost as importantly, Ms. Poynter was able to help put my mind at ease when it was my time to be the client instead of the lawyer.

    I would recommend Ms. Poynter without hesitation.

    • I recommend Virginia Poynter.

    Simply put, Mrs. Poynter is amazing. At first I must admit that I was skeptical due to not being able to reach her often. I then decided to email her and I got back rapid responses. I didn't realize that she truly is a busy attorney. She handles your case with care and integrity. If you choose her to handle your affairs, you will not be let down. If she doesn't answer back quickly, rest assure that she is probably working on your case. I will be deferring to her expertise in my future affairs if and when they arise.

    • I do not recommend Virginia Poynter.

    I hired Virginia (Ginger) Poynter in August 2014, she took money for container. After that, she became not responsive at all. I had to call many times, left many messages, voice mails. Then, she decided she didn't want to represent me any more and promised to refund my retainer. That was in early Dec. 2014. Four weeks passed, no refunded yet. I am wondering whether I could get my retainer back.

    • I recommend Virginia Poynter.
    • I hired Virginia 1-3 years ago.
    • Virginia handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I had a very challenging and complicated divorce/child custody case. Ginger is a very thorough and understanding attorney who truly cares about her clients. She was able to work through all the difficulties of my case and get the outcome I was looking for. Without her dedication life would not be the same for me or my son. Thank you Ginger for all that you have done for us through this very difficult case.

    • I recommend Virginia Poynter.

    In my opinion whats make the best attorney are: That "us" the clients feel like they care and they can honestly help us in our difficult situations, either minor or major whichever the case may be. I have had the pleasure of being truly blessed to have an attorney who sympathizes and shows compassion to my legal needs. Who is extremely family oriented and believes in helping others with a genuine personality. I have been through a life changing process and I couldn't have held out that one day it would be rectified if it wasn't for the support or guidance for my best interest and the patience my attorney have had. I highly recommend Ginger Poynter she is willing to answer all questions and very knowledgeable in her field. A strong lady who is determined and detailed oriented, firm and willing to fight for what she knows is the right side of the law. A woman who will; "get the job done!"

    An excellent and experienced litigator and jurist. I highly recommend Ginger. She is helpful in every way, both in person and by email. Don't hesitate to contact her about your case. After contacting several other lawyers who seemed incompetent, I found Ginger to be very knowledgeable and willing to work with me.

    I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Ginger Poynter and would give her a superior score. In addition to having a high degree of integrity. I have found her to have a tremendous drive and passion for her work and often has gone beyond that which I have experienced with other attorneys. She has been my attorney for approximately 7 years now and has been counsel to other members of my family where the cases involved such matters as felony charges, child custody and child support issues. She has handled every case with confidence and integrity. Her personal counsel has saved me from countless mistakes and many sleepless nights.

    Mrs. Poynter, was great to work with. She guided us right through the law of events, and got us out on the other side, with all questions answered. I do recommend her services, especially if you have a teenager. Mrs.Poynter, was recommended to me by a friend who also used her office.
