  • Jason Caldwell Greaves

    I worked in the office next to Sonja for two years before she moved on to start her new firm. I know first-hand how dedicated she is to her clients, and how methodically she tackles every aspect of her cases. She also understands the financial and emotional impact that a divorce or child custody case can have on families, and she keeps that in mind in her approach to each situation. Sonja is a consummate professional, I have learned a great deal from her, and I endorse her without reservation.

  • Andrew George Simpson

    I strongly endorse this lawyer. Ms. Aoun has the courtroom experience, legal acumen, and common sense to represent clients both effectively and compassionately. As a bankruptcy lawyer myself, I know there are plenty of domestic lawyers who can litigate, appearing week after week to argue over minutia, billing more and more fees. But Ms. Aoun knows the right fights to wage. And when she does litigate, she does so effectively and efficiently. Our client was well served by Ms. Aoun for a very fair price, and I will recommend her to clients in the future.
