Name change for teen
Celeste handled the name change for our teenage son. From the moment that we were referred to them, we felt that our case was being handled by an intelligent and compassionate lawyer who would get the job done efficiently and effectively. We were not wrong. Celeste and our team walked us through everything that we needed to do. They handled the court appearance so impressively and their prep allowed for a swift and easy appearance. They also indicated how to then handle all the updating of different recodes - birth certificate, SS #, etc. The whole team was wonderful and I would highly recommend them, Celeste and their whole team!
