Paula Teske is the best there is. our case was a very difficult most of the other lawyers said it couldnt be done but Paula said it can be done. Together we all worked as one and was able to adopt my daughter. this is a case that hadn't ever been heard of. My daughter was removed from the house at a very young age and all parental rights were terminated and she was adopted out. Now fast forward ten years and one day we get a call from DCFS asking if we would want to bring her home and readopt her. We said yes we would love to. So we started calling different lawyers and all but one said it was never going to happen, DCFS would never call the biological parent and try to reunite a family.Paula on the other hand said YES it can be done.Well it took two years and a lot of hoop jumping to please DCFS but WE DID IT. We officially adopted her in Feb 2015. Without Paula we would never have been able to bring our family back together.
Paula Teske was my lawyer in a foster to adoption case and she is absolutely amazing! I just finalized my adoption because of her and it was a long, tough case. She is just so hard-working, very knowledgeable and very resourceful. She supported me completely and kept me positive throughout. I really can't say enough good things about her (and her staff) and I recommend her services 100%.
In September, 2012, I retained Paula Teske in the matter of Juvenile Dependency for a petition (s. 300) filed against us by the Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS). Paula’s knowledge encompasses 30 years of experience in this area. She was professional, knowledgeable and confident in her interactions with me as well as other attorneys and/or members of Superior Court of California of Los Angeles (Juvenile Court). Her compassion in dealing with our situation was truly appreciated. Knowing how to navigate the law in a Section 300 Juvenile Dependency Petition case is of the utmost importance. Paula guided me every step of the way. I would highly recommend her in cases involving Juvenile Dependency.
As a Client in a very recent Adoption matter with the County of Los Angeles I found Paula Teske, Attorney at Law provided us with the most professional and competent legal support in this matter. Her services resulted in the adoption of two wonderful boys ages 7 and 11 years who were both recently added to my wife's and my family. This was a difficult case, but Paula personally provided excellent and responsive support and was always willing to go the extra mile for our family. Paula is very familiar with the Family Court System, has many contacts and i consider her help in this matter to be very valuable. I strongly recommed that you not proceed with an adoption matter in Family Court without the help from a competent attorney who specializes in this field. It is a very complex process and Paula's help and experience was invaluable. We are pleased to report that the adoption of our two boys has been finalized and is in no small part to Paula's wisdom, expertise and aggressive advocacy.
Paula Teske is a woman and lawyer of her word. I cannot compliment her enough. She is a hardworker and she truely a good person. My experience with her firm was amazing and I would definitely refer friends and use her for any other legal issues that may arise for me in the furture!
Paula Tekse and her team helped me through a lengthy and arduous family law battle. Although the case was repeatedly drawn out, due to the other party, Paula stuck with me through the entire ordeal. She was always willing to take the time to speak with me and made sure that I understood what was happening. While the other party used underhanded tactics to attempt to get what they wanted, Paula did everything above board and was successful.
What really made an impression on me was that she genuinely cared about me and my family and most importantly the well being of my infant son.
I am more than satisfied with the service received from Paula Teske and Associates and would highly recommend her.
Do your research before hiring any attorney. This attorney handled my divorce case and I truly regret it. I was misled and uninformed the entire time. What should have been a simple divorce, turned into 3 years of lining her pockets.
