Lawyer
I hired Sofia twice and she was excellent in representing me in child support matters; and most importantly we won. I highly recommend her.

Best lawyer I’ve had
She simplified legal language for me so I knew exactly what I was signing. As long as she has availability, I wouldn’t get advice from any other attorney.

Excellence and a true humanitarian
I have known Sofia for many years. I hired her recently to help me deal with two very difficult tenants. Those two individuals enlisted their circle of friend to strike back at Sofia and try to make her look bad here in these reviews. For that I am very sorry. Sofia is always profession, patient, helpful and understanding. She gave me hope and the real sense that I had someone on my side and someone looking out for me. I hope I never need a lawyer again, but if I do it will be Sofia and I will send all me friend to her. She knows the law and she has a backbone. I admire and respect her, and thankful that I know her.

Amazing attorney
Sofia is a fantastic attorney I've needed on two occasions. She is confident, knowledgeable and most of all so hard-working for her clients. If she can't do something she will tell you who can. Besides being very personable she really cares about her clients and the results she can achieve for them. Excellent results each time. I recommend her to everyone looking for legal help of any type.

Avoid! Find another lawyer! Don't do what I did!
I so regret that I hired her as my divorce lawyer. Almost immediately, to my dismay and confusion, she wanted me to concede and make concessions to my ex that gave my ex so much of the power and benefits. When I think I could have and should have gotten 50/50 custody of my kids, she told me I would never gotten it without ever making it clear as to why and she thinks I should be happy that I got the couple days that I did and that I don't have to pay full child support. Keep in mind that my ex makes more than double what I make and she would have had to pay me monthly spousal maintenance if it was 50/50. I also got left with all the marital debt because Sofia thinks I should have been happy with the reduced child support. l feel like Sofia did as little as possible and left me, who was under so much emotional stress and duress, to figure things out, which led me to miss so much in the stipulation agreement that will keep me down for the next 15 years. In the agreement, I found errors and inconsistencies that she should have picked up on. In retrospect, even if it had cost me $50,000 or more, it would have been cheaper to have gone to court and to fight for a better deal than to give in and sign the one I did. So again, maybe Sofia is a good lawyer for some things but divorce isn't one of them. Find another divorce lawyer.

"Sofia is knowledgeable, committed to her clients and hard working. I am always confident that a client I refer to Sofia will never come back to me to complain that "my lawyer doesn't get back to me", "I don't know what is going on". She fights for her clients to get the best possible results in what is always a difficult situation (family law)."
