The last time I dealt with her she got me custody. She works the bureaucratic system very well. The system for Fathers is very tough. Give her a chance we have our boy

She pretends to know and is very good at trapping clients. She convinced me that my $5k retainer would be ok to start... after almost 2 months in my case, she did not bill me, signed off my consitutional right, but signing a restraining order prohibiting me from seeing or contacting my child, then, if that was not good enough, she continued the hearing for another $800 court hearing and a $500 for signing the continuance. She refused to file a motion for revision. She miscontrued the law and refused to accept that we have published law on point of the issue of contempt of hearing.
Finally when I got her billing for $12k for the first month for doing nothing but worsening my case, I fired her and demanded my money back. She has not refunded me and I had to go to trial on my own to repair the damages she caused me. She was so afraid of the commissioner and got wacked by the commissioner. She also refused to write a statement regarding the commissioner's actions. I did. I wrote to the judicial commission and soon aftere the commissioner Canada Thurston got removed from the family law department.
I wish my posts can prevent others from falling prey of this inadequate consel.
