Highly Recommend
Attorney Schoff is tough, honest, and dependable. She was recommended to me to sort out a difficult divorce and custody plan. In our first consultation, she laid things out very clearly, letting me know all the options available and tailoring a game plan for the specifics of my case. This process allowed me to make the most informed decision that optimized costs and time. She got me to the desired outcome and I couldn't be happier with her services. I would highly recommend without reservation.

Wonder Woman
My ex hired a bulldog and I was in pieces after things went south and got to a level where mediation was no longer going to be an option. I found Tara online and she quickly familiarized herself with the details of my case. From start to finish, I totally felt like I was in good hands. Her clear expertise on what I was going through kept me calm during the most chaotic period of my life. She represented me strongly and tactfully. Tara took an uphill battle case and gave me a result that exceeded my highest hopes. I was thrilled with the way she successfully navigated the mess that was my situation. I came out the other side with a great alimony agreement and sole custody of my two young daughters. Thank you for everything!!

Extremely helpful in a difficult case
I hired Tara in the midst of a contentious divorce after being totally dismayed with my previous attorney's handling of things. Ultimately, Tara helped me to the best possible outcome and I could not be more pleased with how things ended. During the whole process, I was kept in the loop. Tara was upfront about the realistic outcomes, transparent and fair about costs, and a responsive communicator. I felt comfortable during the whole process that she was working diligently and in my best interests. I highly recommend Tara to anyone looking for effective and compassionate legal counsel.

Doesn't advocate for you
I engaged Tara for a divorce with 3 children. Throughout the process she was evasive and never directly answered questions. During mediation and through settlement she did not advocate for me and she pressured me to settle. Well, because of her I agreed to an idiotic child support order that prevents me from even getting a mortgage. She gave terrible advice and is not your advocate.
