  • Heather L Crawford

    I am thrilled to endorse Arlene as a hard-working, ethical and knowledgeable advocate. She takes the time to listen and identify a client's goals, and is compassionate in working toward solutions. Arlene is also committed to giving back to her community through volunteer efforts on many fronts. I highly recommend Arlene and always enjoy working with her as I know she will be honest, reasonable and ethical.

    Over the years Arlene has volunteered her time and devoted her legal skills to assisting TeamChild youth clients. She is very talented at working with vulnerable clients and families in need. Arlene provides the highest caliber of legal assistance in family law and estate planning matters. We often refer cases to her involving youth who are escaping violence and critically in need of legal help. Arlene always delivers exactly the help that is needed and in a manner that is compassionate and highly professional. I strongly endorse her.
