Professional Attorney
I was looking for a family attorney that has the experience and professionalism to help with a custody case. I was recommended to Atty Tigue. Right from the first contact she was knowledgeable, professional and caring. She explained the custody process and advised she would assist me with everything. She was quick to return phone calls and never made false promises. I highly recommend her for any family law cases.

Amazing attorney and person.
Stephanie is an amazing attorney and person. We retained her for a difficult child custody case. She was able to draw on her experience as an attorney and mother ensuring that everybody was comfortable along the way. She is well worth every penny.

Very Happy Dad
Being a guy - was not looking forward to entering a child custody case after being involved in this system for over 14 years and knowing how Dads usually get treated. Stephanie gets involved, is very knowledgeable and personable and puts her expertise to work. She responds to everything within the same day if not immediately. You could not ask for someone better to represent you. She was able to pull off what I had previously thought was impossible - giving a Dad full physical custody (making my daughter and myself extremely happy). Stephanie was much more affordable than other lawyers - and regardless of cost - she's worth every penny and you won't be disappointed.

One Happy Dad!
After my consultation with Stephanie, I was confident immediately that she would help me and my kids. My kids are now in the best home to fit their needs and I am able to guide them to become outstanding adults some day. In the meantime, I am so thankful to Stephanie for helping me win a battle that is almost unheard of! She was compassionate and understanding and gave me confidence at times I was feeling hopeless.

Forever Grateful
I came into Stephanie's office with custody paperwork, a terrified and desperate parent, with only a few days until the court date. She got right to work. She was easy to speak with, professional, and made sure I understood everything the paperwork listed. It was immediately apparent to me that Stephanie is extremely knowledgeable in practicing family law. I left her office feeling confident she was guiding me through this difficult and stressful time. I text her multiple times the next few days with questions and for advice, she always responded in great detail within minutes. As a result of Stephanie's efforts, I now have primary physical custody of my beautiful little girl! I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an attorney. I will absolutely call her the next time I require her expertise...

Best child custody Attorney around!
I would highly recommend Attorney Stephanie Tigue for any child custody case. She is extremely hardworking and dedicated to her clients. If she is unsure about something she will do anything to find the answer. She is a very caring and intelligent individual who fights for her clients and won't back down. I was very nervous and scared to be going through a custody litigation but she assured me we won't ever lose hope and win. She is very thorough and never keeps you wondering what is going on with your case. She has been very easy to get in touch with and she listened to everything that was going on. I never doubted her advice through our entire process and has always been well prepared. I would highly recommend her! She gave me the peace my son and I needed. Thank you so much for being passionate about your job!

Child Custody Client
I was a client of Stephanie for my child custody case . I can honestly say she is amazing at what she does and has passion for her work. She is very easy to talk to and very sociable to her clients. She definitely knows her stuff and I witnessed during my custody case that of there is something questionable she finds the answer right away. I really enjoyed working with her and she doesn't back down in the court room and she doesn't fight "dirty". She was very honest with my family and I and during court and always responded to my questions or calls as soon as possible. She's very devoted to her clients and work. She is also very supportive and prepared me for what to expect in a court room and explained to me the process of everything to our family. Stephanie fought very hard and fair for my case and I'm very happy to say that the outcome was everything my family and I were looking for. I believe that because of having such a great attorney my Child custody matters between myself and the other parent are over. It was very refreshing to have an attorney who fights for her clients for the right reasons and not just for payment. Overall I would definitely recommend her and if need be I would reach out to her as my counsel again. Her rates are very fair and reasonable and she earns every bit of it. The qualities a client wants from an attorney especially during an emotional battle she has. Thank you so much Stephanie for all you have done for my family and I.

Excellent Choice
I have been very pleased with Attorney Tigue and her work- she has been able to navigate me through a challenging divorce and custody agreement. I would not hesitate to recommend her for anyone needing legal representation. She has been very responsive and returned calls and my emails very quickly. I appreciate her counsel and professionalism in my case; it has been hard for me not to be guided by emotions through all of this, and Attorney Tigue was the clear voice of reason and logic,which has given me a great deal of peace when I had very little. Thank you very much!

Outstanding Service!
Stephanie was very professional and on top of every situation that arose during my divorce. She fought hard for me and my daughter to do what was right. There was not one moment that I questioned her being the right person for the job. I would recommend her to anyone seeking legal help!

Not only a great Attorney, but a great person.
Stephanie is not only a great Attorney, who won my custody case in no time at all, but she is a kind compassionate person who took my fight and made it her own. She responded quickly and advised me every step of the way. If you need legal help, I highly recommend this attorney, she is awesome!

Not responsive, unprofessional
I cannot in good conscience recommend Attn. Tigue for anyone who needs fast resolution. I retained Stephanie to assist with my divorce and child custody and initially (after my retainer of 2500 was paid) she was responsive. However as time went on it would be days before she returned calls or emails, she did not take initiative and I often had to prompt her to get things done. When the safety of your children and assets are involved this is not acceptable. When I asked her to assist with child support I was required to pay a separate retainer and she was responsive for a day and then went back to ignoring my questions. I have had to show up in court pro se because my own attorney never responded. I asked for an itemized bill at least 15 times and never received one. I chose Stephanie based on a recommendation of a friend and they too are experiencing the same issues. She seems very nice however I truly would never recommend that anyone retains her.

Response from Stephanie Tigue January 21, 2019
I am disheartened that you would resort to an online negative review to express your thoughts without first attempting to speak with me directly. I would be happy to take this discussion offline, however I am constrained to reply to what you have already posted. You posted anonymously, but were easily identifiable given your misconceptions. I feel I owe it to my clients to respond. You retained our services for Divorce only, NOT custody or support. I explained that all collateral matters are not covered by your retainer, and I cannot represent a client in a matter for which I have not been retained. Moreover, you requested at least six office meetings to discuss the status of your Divorce, or just to vent, even when advised that we had submitted Discovery requests and were in the waiting period allotted for a response. These repeated meetings consumed a large portion of your retainer, however I obliged because it was what you needed. After multiple discussions and explanation, however, you insisted on an approach that was not legally feasible, nor recognizable by the courts, and did not wish to take my experienced advise. I will not allow a client to force a progression in their case that is not in their best interest. I also strive to not waste client funds. Additionally, you were sent no less than four itemized invoices prior to your 11/19 post, so again, I don’t understand where you may have gotten confused. These issues could have been easily rectified prior to a negative review which is wholly inaccurate. Nonetheless, I wish you the best.
