  • John William Kydd

    Stacy is a pleasure to work with. She quickly gets to the key issues and addresses them. Working with a lawyer is not always easy. Lawyers are often set in how they wish to work; to doing it their way. I watched Stacy adapt to a challenge where the way to do it was not know. She was helpful, thorough and very effective. It is increasingly important for fmaily counsel to be able to work well with other counsel. Stacy does that well and comes up with novel ideas about how to improve family practice. She is not content to simply be a 9-5 lawyer; she spends quite a bit of time giving time to projects that seek to make family law better for everyone. We need more lawyers like her.
