Well, my -firsthand- experience with Stephanie was very positive. I retained Stephanie to navigate a complicated divorce involving multiple businesses as well as myriad financial & tax issues. Her experience as a bankruptcy attorney served my interests as well, and I was happy to have her support during a contentious court appearance, since she succeeded in having opposing council's egregious request for extra legal fees dismissed by the judge. It was clear from that experience that Stephanie is well-known and highly-regarded in the legal community. It is true, you get what you pay for, and it's also true that quality is not expensive, it's priceless. I'm -so- glad I hired an expert, because it ended up saving me fees during the divorce, and the settlement ended up saving my assets, which was my goal from the outset. I can -wholeheartedly- recommend Stephanie; I feel she's the one for anyone desiring a respected, seasoned lawyer on their team. BTW, I'm mystified how someone who didn't actually hire or work with Stephanie is able to post a review to begin with, and how it is possible they could have formed any bad opinion. My personal interactions and the end result were entirely satisfactory...period.

I needed a lawyer, and I needed one fast. My wife had served me with divorce papers and I didn’t know where to turn or what to do. I had 21 days to respond and I was devastated.
How do you find a good lawyer, particularly when you are in a situation where you never thought you’d be and where you have absolutely no experience? I started an interview process, first getting some recommendation from friends. I had interviewed three lawyers, with indifferent impressions, when the last said “Ya’ know who you need, the best in Williamsburg – Stephanie Montgomery”.
I made an appointment with Ms. Montgomery. During the interview I could tell she was different from the rest. Her credentials are outstanding and her experience is deep. She knows the law and the process. She combines an extraordinary strategic ability with the tactics to implement that strategy. By itself, that would have done it.
There was something else though that makes her special; we clicked. Here was an attorney I could talk to, for she not only heard me, she listened. Straight-forward and candid, she tells you what you need to know and how it is. The most important aspect of the attorney-client relationship is communication and trust; Stephanie Montgomery builds and earns that trust.
In my case the process was long and difficult, Ms. Montgomery worked with me all the way, providing expert opinion and working hard to come to resolution. She showed extraordinary patience in the face of difficult people and circumstances. It was in the appearance before the Judge that her abilities manifested. She is present; seeing what is going on, reading the judge, making adjustments in tactics to meet the strategic goals. Her presentation skills are outstanding; it is entirely fair to say that she dominated that appearance before the court.
I’ve been approached by two friends who have found their selves in the same unfortunate circumstances; in both instances I recommended Ms. Montgomery and they are now her clients.
Divorce is a tough road to travel; Stephanie Montgomery has the experience, skills, and ability to help you along that journey.
