This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Divorce and high conflict custody
During my divorce Attorney Cushing handled the process extremely proffessionally. I caught in false allegations on several occasions and at times very stressed and confused. Mrs. Cushing continually delivered and give me exactly the info and advice I needed. I was able to gain custody of my daughter and she has been there to help facilitate the many problems which inevitably arise from these situations since. I cannot speak highly enough of her.
