Attorney Avila, was always very responsive to my inquiries, and the result of my divorce case was better than I expected. I would highly recommend Ms. Avila for any family law case.
Ms. Avila has been my attorney for over 10 years since my divorce started. Though my divorce has been final since 2003, I needed Ms. Avila throughout the years. She has been very patient with me especially with an ex husband like mine. He is a serial court junkie and takes me in for any little thing but she is patient with me and helps me deal with my situation. She is very patient and compassionate with her clients. She is always prepared to fight the battle with you. She responds in a timely matter and always willing to answer my questions. She is also very reasonable with her fees. I am always sending her clients her way.
Martha handled my divorce case commencing in 2007 through its completion in 2012. I was thoroughly pleased with her level of competence, professionalism, reliability and overall support. She always kept me updated on the progress of the case and provided me with the guidance I needed at the time.
She rarely answered my inquiries with valuable information; she didn't help progress my case in court; I gave her my documents neatly organized in a binder with tabbed folders and when we parted ways, she gave them back in a messy stack full of post-its, all wrapped with a rubber band; she ignored my instructions about what I wanted to accomplish with the most critical area of my case - custody.
Had a child custody case and saw Ms. Avila. Her initial consultation was informative and prepared me for all the issues that would arise. During my court appearance and throughout dealings with my ex, Ms. Avila was highly professional but still compassionate, keeping my child's interest as a high priority. I highly recommend her.
Does not come to court prepared and for what she charged I am out of a lot of money for nothing.
