Alyssa Rower was referred to me by an acquaintance following a punishing 2-year-long mediation process for a separation. I was anxious to solidify (legalize) the agreement and move on. But it was complicated: a substantial amount of money was involved, unusual terms had been only partially negotiated, and the opposing attorney was determined to make the process ugly. From the day I encountered Alyssa and her team, I was impressed. Her administrative staff, her fellow lawyers, and Alyssa, herself, were exceptionally professional. Everything they did came from a place of expertise, rigor, determination, grit, intelligence, and, at the same time, poise. Alyssa is the lawyer you want by your side: she doesn't miss a beat; she's creative; she's exceptionally sharp; she sees the forest for the trees; she's assertive. And, importantly, no matter how thorny or adversarial things get, she is compassionate. Alyssa possesses the rare ability to be tough and gentle at the same time. And she has the confidence to tell you exactly what she's thinking -- and why. With Alyssa, you never get fed a sugar-coated rationale. She's a straight shooter. Alyssa's remarkable calm in the face of a vitriolic opposing attorney -- whose mission was to elevate tension and animosity -- was nothing short of remarkable. Importantly, I am very satisfied with the outcome of Alyssa's work. I feel extremely fortunate to have worked with her and her team. I recommend Alyssa Rower unreservedly.
