Debra helped me to negotiate a Post-Nuptial agreement. My husband and I have an unconventional situation. Debra is very intelligent, savvy, and enormously helpful. She drafted an excellent and fair agreement, while also looking out for my rights. Debra is very experienced and professional, yet she is able to cut through issues and offer an honest appraisal of a dynamic that effects short and long term life decisions. Great attorney!

Debra worked long, hard hours for almost 2 years on my difficult divorce. She assures that her clients have a clear understanding of progress (or lack there of) during the entire process. Debra incorporates the needs of all aspects of the client in her management of the case (financial, psychological, physical, etc.). Divorce can be such a life altering event, Debra works with true honor and accountability to do what is fair, right and reasonable for the client. I was truly impressed by the way Debra cares for and manages her clients.

Debra did an excellent job with my divorce. I hired her because I had hoped to reach a collaborative settlement with my wife. We had one very interesting legal issue which Debra consistently said gave me a strong case to argue that 50% of our assets were non-marital. Because I was willing to offer a 50/50 split of ALL assets (with no maintenance because of the significant non-marital assets that I was splitting with my ex-wife), Debra assured me that my offer was very generous.
Unfortunately, my ex-wife hired an expensive downtown litigator and asked for more than 50% of the assets plus significant maintenance. Although my wife's actions delayed our divorce by many months, Debra proved a very effective negotiator. Once we got both attorneys in the same room and Debra argued our legal position, it became clear that they agreed that we had a strong case to argue that as much as 50% of the assets were non-marital. As a result, we ultimately reached a cooperative settlement.
Debra was very effective at reassuring me that our legal case was sound, and that we did not need to sweeten our offer, despite my impatience to finish the process more quickly. Her legal research and confidence in her position were excellent and she was an excellent negotiator. She was also very reasonable in the amount of hours that she devoted (and billed me) for this case. She did a great job.

Debra represented my husband and I in both of our adoptions (we have adopted domestically twice--in 2005 and 2009), and also was our lawyer through several failed matches as well. In addition to being an adoptive parent herself, she was always direct but compassionate, and always got back to us promptly. I cannot even say how much it helped having her as our attorney through some very stressful, heart-wrenching (but ultimately happy) years.

Deb is an amazing lawyer who is very knowledgeable, compassionate, yet firm. I was 100% satisfied with the results Deb achieved in my case and will forever feel indebted for the services she offered. Deb went far above and beyond the expected role of a lawyer and seemed more like a trusted friend fighting on my behalf. If you have the opportunity to retain Deb's services I highly recommend her. You won't regret your relationship with Deb Braselton.

Debbie is concise, professional and reasonable. In family matters, emotions can run high. Debbie deals in facts and realistic outcomes but also has a empathetic and understanding nature. When dealing with an opposing party, she is firm and clear in her communication.

Divorces are messy, and Debra has the experience to deal with it.
