Divorce
I went to attorney Lubonja after my first attorney did not do anything for me and my children . Attorney Lubonja ended my nightmare with in 4 months. I got custody, and a reasonable asset division . Attorney Lubonja kept me in the loop at all time. Called me when she was sick, emailed me at 4 am , showed up for court not feeling well to represent me. She explained what options I have, and what to expect . Explained the pros and cons and the cost. She was the most transparent attorney I ever worked with. I can't thank her enough for her professional, honesty, and commitment. When I went to her my case was 9 months old and a mess due to my prior counsel and the GAL. If you are like me, have no clue about law, need help and looking for someone knowledgeable to have your back please contact attorney Lubonja.

Professional, committed, and dedicated attorney
I was afraid to even go somewhere and open up about my case..Attorney Lubonja is not only professional to explain how everything works and thorough with the process but she was also a great moral support even after her work hours.. She went above and beyond her profession to support me and finalize everything successfully!! Would recommend her to anybody like me who doesn't know where to start !! Can't thank her enough for her professionalism and commitment!!!

Don't Go It Alone!
Going through divorce court is not something you want to do alone. However, you alone want to pick a good lawyer to support you through such times. Artila and her team were very much on tip of things in my situation. They kept me apprised every step of the way, and fought the hard battles I wouldn't even know how to begin to navigate. In the end, I was very happy with the matter being concluded, and also not being financially fleeced, as lawyers tend to have a reputation for. Would I change anything as far as picking Atila? No way. Would I recommend them to friends and family ? Without hesitation. They know how to handle the problems you don't even know exist. Try them and see for yourself!

Hands down the best!!!
I promise you will not be disappointed if you hire Attourney Lubonja to represent you in your case. She is very knowledgeable, professional and also very personable too. A pleasant experience none the less. Artila does not disappoint and her paralegal Sara is also amazing! Very responsive and professional and also very pleasant to deal with. Will definitely be using Artila for any future cases!!!

Best Lawyer I have ever had!
She is amazing and handled my case with ease and took a lot of stress off of me. I recommend her to all my friends and family who need a great lawyer for child custody and family matters. My kids are happy with the arrangements we made in court and are thriving because of it. I believe she goes 100 percent into a case and works really hard to please and I am a really happy! She went above and beyond what I expected! I am so thankful I found such a great lawyer! Thank you for your services. It has been a pleasure working with you!

Artila is an amazing attorney
Artila is an amazing attorney. I’ve used this law firm before for my divorce, but never had the pleasure of working with attorney Lubonja. I didn’t hesitate to use this law firm again when I was having issues with child custody. This time around I had my consultation with her, she walked me through the process. She fought aggressively for me, and something that was supposed to a long time to regain custody, she cut the process in half. I’m beyond happy I had the chance to work with her!! My child is back home before the holidays, and I couldn’t be happier. If I’m ever in a situation where I need an attorney I will not hesitate to go to her. Thank you much attorney Lubonja for all your efforts!!! You’re truly good at what you do!!!!

Absolutely Wonderful!!
Attorney Lubonja was a wonderful attorney for my child custody case. She and her staff walked me through the process and provided me with cost-effective options prior to taking the case. Having divorced recently and still in shock, she assured me that she would handle all of the litigation and filings in this case. In the end, we were victorious and I was able to move forward.

Phenomenal!!!!
I never thought I would be in the position of needing a lawyer to represent me & my child in family court. I searched the internet, and felt so lost. When I came across this law firm, I read each review very carefully. Ms. Lubonja's profile was the only one that stood out. I wanted to connect with someone that didn't see me as another client on their desk. I remember like it was yesterday, our phone interview. I was so nervous that I ranted without taking a breath. We spoke for a few minutes and then I began to cry. All I thought was I hope she doesn't think I'm crazy, but most of all I pray she can represent us, not just me. I wanted her to connect with me as a mother. I needed someone to take the time to get to know us and what is at stake here. And she sure did!!! I went through so much during the time we worked together. And through & through she was there with us. She believed in me and guided me through so many difficulties. Ms. Lubonja advocated for me and stood up for us. The level of professionalism and patience she had through each situation we faced was truly appreciate and so amazing. I put more than just trust in her, I put all my faith. Ms. Lubonja helped me stay focused and on top of things. Recommending her to someone, anyone would be a piece of cake. We are truly blessed.

Artila Lubonja, a excellant lawyer
Artila is very concerned with getting facts and following through with every aspect of my case according to the law. She kept me informed of each step and answered questions in a manner that I understood. She is tough and asks the hard questions at each hearing. I highly respect and recommend her in a child custody case.

A Fierce Defender and a Clever Negotiator
Attorney Artila Lubonja defended me fiercely in court. At some point during the testimony, the GAL assigned to my case omitted some key details in an effort to make me look bad before the judge. However, attorney Lubonja was quick to defend me by pointing out to the judge the details that the GAL didn’t mention. Also, attorney Lubonja was a great negotiator when it was time to negotiate with my ex’s legal team. Last but not least, attorney Lubonja helped me figure out what to fight for. So, I was very happy with her legal services.

Best I could hope for
Attorney Lubonja recently handled my divorce and I must say she made the best of a bad situation. She always had my best interest in mind, and let me know what my options were.

Extremely professional
Hiring Attorney Artila was the best decision made after being self represented for months, she was able to raise the agreement compensation more than I imagined in a conflict divorce, within a shorter period of time, and was always very helpful with all questions I had. Attorney Artila made sure to finalize my divorce in my favor and I couldn’t thank her enough. If you’re getting a divorce, you absolutely will not regret hiring Attorney Lubonja.

Excellent
I used Mrs Artila Lubonja as my attorney for my custody case and she was really helpful! Mrs Artila helped me from beginning of my case, when the hearing took place and after. She is a very good person and willing to help everyone who needs help. I cannot thank her enough for what she did for me. If I have to use her again as my attorney in the future I will do it without hesitation. I definitely recommend her.

Highly Recommend!!!
Attorney Lubonja represented me during my divorce. She was always looking ahead and arranging things appropriately to make sure all decisions were advantageous to my case. She stayed strong and did not back down when opposing counsel tried to make changes that were not in my best interest. And she did this on more than one occasion. If you’re looking for an attorney that will have your back no matter what, look no further. Attorney Lubonja along with her staff will make the toughest time of your life, easier to manage!!!

Excellent!!!!!!
Attorney Artila represented me in a high conflict divorce. She took the time to understand what was important to me and fought to get me more than I thought possible! She was a wonderful advocate and so kind and compassionate. As soon as she walked in, it was clear that Artila was well respected in the courthouse. I’m so glad I hired her, wasn’t cheap but you get what you pay for. Artila truly went above and beyond to help me throughout my entire divorce process and I’ll be recommending her to anyone in need!
