4.5 stars 16 totalReview Debra Herndon
Debra and her staff were knowledgeable friendly and compassionate. I really appreciate the time they took with me as I went through this difficult time in my life. At my first visit, Debra looked at the petition and advised that the demands were excessive especially when she and I knew there was adultery involved. My ex and I agreed to the terms in the final decree. Then she and her attorney attempted to make multiple changes one week before the hearing. With Debra's help we were able to identify these changes were not required by any legal statue and I was within my rights to be fair and reasonable. I had originally planned to go Pro-Se. I am so glad I found Debra and her firm. They saved me not just from financial ruin but a lot of heart ache.
Debra represented me in my divorce, entering the case mid-stream with complications. She was able to digest a long history of events very quickly and navigate my case to a speedy conclusion while defending my position goals. She is creative and very personable. I always came away from meetings or conversations with peace of mind by her confidence and knowledge of law.

Mrs. Herndon provided me with the best advice and service since the first moment we met. She has shown much knowledge, empathy and the utmost professionalism in her representation of my case. She helped me to clarify things, understand all my options and formulate the best approach to my needs. Mrs. Herndon has been personally involved in all aspects of my case, keeping always an open communication and being available at all times. I have absolute peace of mind knowing that she is handling my affairs.

Debra Herndon should be at the top on any one’s list as the attorney to represent a client. She is understanding of and compassionate about her client’s situation, needs and desires. Debra is extremely knowledgeable and experienced with the laws and the legal system. She is aggressive, yet cautious in her representation. She is tenacious and thorough!!! Throughout our case Debra was available and responsive to our inquiries, making sure we had clear understanding of what to expect and she made sure we ALL were well prepared!!! When Debra Herndon is your attorney, there are few surprises!!! She prepares for all possibilities!!!

I was extremely pleased with the representation I got from Debra. She worked hard to be fair with me and with the other party. She tried to maintain a cost effective representation which in the light of opposing counsel's efforts was truly amazing. She and her staff gave my case a personal feeling that I was not alone in this and worked hard to inform and instruct me as to the ins and outs of the system. I recommend her without reservation or hesitation. She works hard and smart, two good things.

Debra, her paralegal Valory and the entire firm provided the legal services during the custody battle initiated by my children's father. It was an ongoing, challenging case that depleted my family's resources; financial, time, emotion, serenity.
It takes a special, prepared, and unique individual to provide both the best legal defense as well as sufficiently meet the holistic and emotional needs of the client family. Debra and her staff not only met, but exceeded that expectation.
Efforts were made to be cost-conscious. Communication was timely, professional, and I never felt "out of the loop"; a frustration I hear from other people in similar legal circumstances.
My case was difficut, but ultimately, due to the diligence of Debra and her staff, we "won". I recommend Debra and the firm wholeheartedly.

Deb Hendon is not an ethical lawyer. She will pad the bill and charge you for time not spent. She drained my $10,000 retainer fee in less than 2 months without going to court. After I complained she refunded a small portion of the money, however the bill remains unjustifiable. She did not work my case and I feel her presence actually harmed my case then benefit it. I could have presented myself better without her in the mediation. Even though she charges high she has no real experience, she is very laid back and passive wont fight your case and she only cares for the paycheck. Very bad lawyer.

We hired Debra Herndon to simply retrieve an overpayment with the Attorney Generals office, we did most of the work, supplying a detailed report with all the proof required. We met with the AG and did not go to court. This was settled in a meeting with the AG's attorney before going in front of a Judge. The AG agreed that we were correct. The funds returned to us were approx. $10,000. Debra Herndon's bill was also approx. $10,000. A win for the attorney and a total waste of time and money for us as effectively we received nothing. Herndon asked for a retainer at the first meeting which was paid and indicated that this retainer of $5,000 should be sufficient and whatever was not used would be returned. This was not the case. A final bill was sent to us for approximately another $5,000. My view is that this is a typical case where the attorney is not looking after the client but themselves. We thought that we were in good hands, obviously we were not.

I met one of the smartest women on the planet when I met Deb Herndon. My case was referred to Deb after my former attorney had to step down due to health reasons. My former attorney selected her for me and I am eternally grateful. Deb is highly intelligent and knows the law, her delivery is as poised as velvet, she is budget-conscious, and Deb has become a true friend. Deb Herndon is a package deal. She is the attorney you want on your side of the table rather than the opposite. I highly recommend her representation.

Debra Herndon and her capable staff expedited a very difficult situation for me, and saved the expense of any unnecessary frustration . During the process of my divorce I found myself under most extenuating circumstances that did not allow flexibility. I took comfort knowing I was in good hands. My recommendation carries the highest reguards.
