I felt that she was great when I hired her. Then I could never reach her. I was trying to get a divorce and over a year into it she realized she could not get get me a divorce because we did not live in Virginia long enough. She told me that no one informed her that my husband had moved. I have 6 emails between myself, my husbands attorney, etc saying my husband had moved. I spent a tremendous amount of money for nothing in my opinion.

My experience with the Grenadier firm was not what i was expecting. I am still embarassing disappointed becase I went to her begging for help. She clearly was a strectch for my budget but apparently with her spouse being sick she was never available except email that always would be replied late in the evening. Not to mention the immense billing that I cant understand yet. Clearly, Ilona is by far one of the best in the area, no doubt and a fighter if she was available. However, I would not say that for all her associates. My spouses attorney clearly walked over them at least three times I can count. I would also venture to say that I depended on her to resolve this divorce quickly, decisively, fairly and within a reasonable timeframe and budget. This did not occor, costed another 5-10K and lastly no you should not trust the Washington Magazine especially if your a pauper earning under 200K a year.
So if you can afford her personally I would recommend her. If your stuck with associates billing 4K a month, then perhaps go elsewhere. JPH.
