Posted by Judy,
I am going through a divorce and although it is amicable, I thought I needed some advice from someone solely representing me. Through a high recommendation of one of my friends , I found Joan. We had a consultation and words can not express how happy I am that we did. She walked me through all of the legal fog that I was surrounded by. She helped me with wording on my agreement and what I needed to do regarding child support. It was all so helpful. I would recommend Joan to anyone. She is caring and really knows how to explain hard to understand information which made me feel more in control during this time.

Joan Champagne helped me with child support changes. I had one child already in college, and I had one child approaching college, and my ex husband was just "adjusting" the child support of his own accord. Joan Champagne efficiently and effectively helped me to get the child support legally and accurately adjusted. Her knowledge and expertise on each and every question or concern I had about the child support changes and options were extremely helpful and comforting to me. I knew I was being "taken care of" professionally and accurately. And Joan Champagne handled all that I had hired her to do in a LOT less time than other lawyers I had worked with would have done. This saved me time, frustration and money! Thanks, Joan, forall of your help!! For the first time, I felt VERY FAIRLY represented!!!!!!

It was a pleasure working with Joan she was very helpful and knowledgeable. She did not waste any time doing what I needed her to do. Most importantly I never had any trouble at all getting in touch with her to discuss my case.

Joan performed flawlessly in a very difficult family matter concerning protection of our mother in a guardianship case and two small claims cases as they were related. She listened very well, considered all options, took an emergency stand on my/mothers behalf by unknown advances by the other parties, she stood up to their aggressive acts. She is completely trustworthy and nonjudgemental. She handled all aspects of the cases with confidence and class. I will call her again if needed.

John and I really appreciated all the help and understanding Joan gave us. It has been a difficult decision to do our wills, but Joan made it very understandable. Thank you

The great thing that Joan did for me during my divorce was to listen! She cared enough to listen to what I wanted and then efficiently complete the process with a minimum amount of confrontation (read that as frustration/heartache and legal fees). Joan also was there when I needed to talk - she answered my questions right away and made me feel like I was heading in the right direction with my property settlement. I have already referred several friends to Joan because I believe in her superior abilities to represent a person.

Joan has helped me on several occasions. She's nothing but professional, kind, and highly versed in her field. As long as she is in practice and my needs are within her expertise; I will refuse to use another attorney. She'll make you feel right at home at the office and in court as well. Very much like hanging out with a dear friend.

Joan did a fantastic job for me in several areas of family law and I continue to regularly rely on her professional advice. She obviously cares deeply about her client's interests, is never afraid to tell it like it is even when I may not want to hear it, and takes great pride in her work. I highly recommend her.
