My Light in the Storm
Attorney Buzzell was the light amid what was, undoubtedly, the darkest period of my life. Witnessing my mother’s courageous two-year battle with cancer was devastating, traumatic, all consuming, and life changing. Moving on with my life as a wife, a mother of two young boys, and a teacher was difficult, to say the least, and just when things seemed as though they couldn’t get any worse, my husband made the decision, through irreconcilable words and actions, to end our marriage nearly three months after my mother’s passing. The next thirteen months would have been virtually impossible to endure without the unwavering support of Attorney Buzzle. Because of her brilliant expertise and strong commitment to my case, she protected my interests and fought for my boys and I with fierce purpose and class, every step of the way, against someone so full of resentment and focused on asserting his dominance over me. She was always available when I needed her, consistently made her presence known to the opposing counsel, and as a result, I never felt alone throughout what I still consider to have been the biggest fight of my life to date. I’ve just now finally reached a period of calm in my life, surrounded by those whom I love most in this world, and I have Attorney Buzzell to thank for that. Her dedication is admirable, and because of her hard work, I am living the life that I now realize I deserved all along. Thank you, Attorney Buzzell!

Hire Tasha before your Ex Does
After seeing Tasha in action I immediately replaced my original attorney with her. She's that good. Having Tasha there for me and my family means the world to me. I get emotional just thinking about it. Because of her I've been able to be there for my daughter during so many happy moments. And just as importantly able to hold her close during some sad ones. Over four years I've been to family court 14 times and observed 40-50 attorneys. Never once did I think I was missing out. And it made me appreciate having a good person that is a brilliant attorney. I think the best family law attorneys are smart, caring, committed, quick on their feet, calm under pressure, resourceful and resolution based. Tasha is all of these. We've all made mistakes or we would't be here. Don't make the mistake of hiring the wrong lawyer. Or worse, let your ex hire Tasha.

The Best!
I found Tasha when I was going through a difficult divorce and custody battle, she came highly recommended. At our first meeting she put me at ease and made me feel like I had someone in my corner. Throughout the whole process she and her staff went above and beyond to answer all my questions, ease my fears and walk me through everything. Her focus and attention to me and my child's needs was unbelievable. She worked tirelessly to resolve my case without a trial and when it became unavoidable she was methodical in handling the points of contention with the kindness of a friend and the tenacity of a pitbull. Through the whole process she was never more than a call or email away, even late at night. Years later when I was in need of assistance with a modification to the custody agreement she was there and an immense help. I can't recommend her enough, her expertise and kindness was an absolute gift during one of the most difficult times in my life.

Highly Recommend
I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere appreciation for all of the hard work and support Tasha Buzzell and her team gave me during my contempt hearing. Having to go through the frustration of filing a contempt was one of the most difficult times in my life, and her expertise, professionalism, and guidance made the process so much easier. From the first consultation, she listened to me and helped me understand the legal process involved in fighting for a contempt complaint. She was always there for me, whether it was to answer my questions, provide reassurance, or simply lend an ear when I needed to talk. Throughout the proceedings, she handled everything with care, precision, and a deep understanding of the law keeping me informed every step of the way and ensuring me that my best interests were always at the forefront of the case. I am grateful for everything that she has done for me and my family, and I would highly recommend Tasha Buzzell and Associates LLC to anyone navigating through the family court system. Her kindness and professionalism have made a significant impact on my life, and I will always be grateful for her help.

Absolutely Amazing
If you are in need, hire Tasha. Full stop. Tasha has supported me and my family through a multi-year case that has been extremely challenging. She has been incredibly resourceful and dependable throughout. Simply put, my life and the life of my family would be significantly different (are worse) if not for Tasha. She is also a fantastic human with a great sense of humor, which has been absolutely essential for keeping me sane throughout.

Very Thorough
Tasha helped us through a mediated divorce process. She was through and responsive. Since that time, she has continued to be a resource when questions come up surrounding the decree that was written. Her energy and caring for her clients is unmatched.

Amazing Experience by true professional
Working with Tasha was a seamless, pleasant experience. Having worked with a different counsel for 10 months who didn't accomplish anything other than booking a court date, Tasha finalized my divorce in 30 days. She listened to my priorities and suggested a unique resolution that required think-out-of-the-box intuition. She was available and communicative, answered all questions thoroughly, and was a true professional. I highly recommend Tasha Buzzell!

Tasha is an incredible lawyer and person for that matter. She represented me through a difficult divorce and custody battle with grace and dignity. My case was unique and complicated, as they all probably are. Not only did she listen to my hopes for the outcome of my case, she clearly explained options and was able to project and predict potential outcomes, which helped drive decision making (and boy was she accurate). She was very professional and objective and made me feel comfortable and understood throughout the entire process. She was calm and professional working with the other lawyer, as well as extremely well respected in the court room. There was not a stone left unturned. She explained everything to me in layman‘s terms which was a huge anxiety relief. I would wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend Tasha to my closest and dearest friends. She was an absolute lifesaver and my case outcome was what I hoped for.

Amazing Attorney
I would highly recommend Tasha to anyone who wants the job done right the first time. Tasha handled my custody hearing in a professional and timely manner. It takes time and can be very frustrating for the other side meaning us. Tasha answered all my questions at anytime of the day or night and if she couldn’t she let you know. Her nickname is Pit Bull and that is exactly what she is to get you what you want and fight for it. She is highly qualified and educated on every angle that you may need help on. Give her a call and see for yourself.

The saving grace of my lawyer Tasha.
Tasha Buzzell helped me tremendously get through the most difficult time of my entire life. My ex husband was certifiably CRAZY and put myself and my family through hell. Tasha was a huge comfort and held my hand throughout the divorce. She gave me a backbone when I had been beaten down emotionally. After the divorce my stepfather passed away. Once again she was such an amazing support and helped untangle the web of the will, properties, and was an emotionally supportive friend. Tashas office also helped my business with providing a rental agreement contract for my stylists and to protect my assets. Tasha is a real person not a stuffy lawyer. She's fearless in court, is completely professional, and provides a huge array of services. I highly recommend her and her team!

Highly Recommend!
Tasha has taken over my case since my original attorney retired. I greatly appreciate her calm, steady demeanor in a conflictual situation. She is more interested in problem solving than "scoring points" in court. Tasha is very competent and well-informed, and made an excellent presentation to the judge on my behalf. I found her also to be an excellent communicator, sometimes even after hours. I strongly recommend her!

we cannot thank her enough!
My husband is military and had a telephonic child support hearing with no attorney present. We never received the judgement so Tasha went to the court for us and picked up our judgement. She noticed an error of two children being claimed when there is only one and immediately fixed the issue. We cannot thank her enough, as it stood before the issue was fixed our family of 4 would have very little money to function. She cares about you and the law! I would recommend her to all my friends!

Excellent Legal Advocate!
I hired Attorney Tasha Buzzell to represent me in a divorce case after a long term marriage. There were some complicated legal issues that Attorney Buzzell handled really well. I am very pleased with the outcome of the case and I owe it to Attorney Buzzell’s excellent advocacy on my behalf. Attorney Buzzell was always prepared, knowledgeable and she made me feel that my concerns were her concerns. I would not hesitate to hire Attorney Buzzell again in the future should the need ever arise.
