Warm-hearted and very professional
I hired Ana Alexander as my lwayer for my separation and divorce case. Attorney Alexander was absolutely amazing!! She was very helpful and was very upfront and transparent about everything. She responded my questions very quick, which reduced a lot of my anxiety. I’ve dealt with other attorneys before but she was by far the best attorney I’ve ever met! I certainly will be using her for my future endeavors and referring her to all friends and family!

Excellent Attorney
Ana is definitely one of the best attorneys in the business. As a fellow attorney, I have consulted with her on numerous matters. Her depth of insight. legal acumen, effective communication skills and ability to tackle challenging legal issues made her my go-to attorney for years.

Kind, Approachable, Knowledgeable
I'm a fellow attorney in the local area. I've served on a community organization board with Ana and have consulted with her about client matters. She's kind, approachable, and knowledgeable. When clients come to me looking for family law or personal injury representation, I'm glad to refer them to Ana.

Exceptional Attorney with An Exceptional Heart for Her Clients
Ana is more than just an attorney. She is an exceptional human. She cares deeply for those she works with and advocates for them as a whole person taking into account where they are in their lives in addition to where they are in the legal process. This perspective allows her to see the whole picture and to provide a deeper breath of expertise than other attorneys in this field who concentrate merely on the case and what is just in front of them. I recommend Ana whole-heartedly. You cannot go wrong with Ana on your side. I promise you that after working with her you may be grateful that your case is over but you will miss having Ana by your side.

Way More Than Just Another Attorney
Simply calling an attorney to request a consultation made me quite anxious. Ana returned my call almost immediately and her friendly voice made me feel a bit better. Driving to meet with her raised fresh anxiety and trepidation, especially the prospect of discussing personal issues, etc. Meeting Ana face-to-face, and experiencing her warm, calming demeanor helped put me at ease almost immediately. She was completely approachable and non-intimidating, enabling me to relax and share details and data with her. She answered all of my questions and was exceedingly generous not only with her time but also with her expertise and obvious compassion. I could tell that she was really listening - without judgment. Ana gave me the very comforting feeling that she really cares, and isn't working merely for financial gain. I believe she's genuinely invested in helping people through the difficult situations they find themselves in. I left feeling such huge relief! It's a fantastic feeling to know Ana will be in my corner when I need her. In addition, she got back to me within forty-eight hours with a referral she had promised. I'm very impressed.

Highly Recommended!
I highly recommend this law firm. Very professional and prompt in handling a very complex family law situation. She is a great listener and as a client you don't feel like just one more case. She was so helpful with providing me information and resources until my issue was successfully resolved. I will refer everyone to Ana Alexander!

Best lawyer I could hope for!
My divorce had been a painful experience with my first lawyer until I found Ana. She was professional and thoughtful. She worked extremely hard to navigate me through this difficult time and worked professionally with the opposite party to bring a closure to my case. She's always there to listen to my need and answered my questions promptly, even during late evening hours or weekends. She always provided me with different legal choices and the associated pros and cons (she's particularly transparent and honest on the costs of different choices so I could weigh in benefits/risks and make sound decisions that fitted my need). She was also sensitive about costs and would not mind if I told her that I'd like to spend my own time to prepare certain documents—so I could save some legal fees. During this process, she won my complete trust—I was at ease knowing she's there to look out for my interest and meanwhile I felt good that I was in the driver's seat for my own life. Divorce itself is a difficult journey for everyone who had to go through this; the last thing you want is a lawyer who only cared about making things complicated/hostile so she/he can squeeze every bits of legal fee from you. After experienced the nightmare of my first lawyer, I have so much appreciation to Ana! I would recommend her to anyone who needs legal advice.

Very reliable and true human, not just another Lawyer who cares about money only.
I got blessed by finding Ana Alexander, she is currently helping me with a custody battle and I love the fact that she is always on top of messages and communication, she is open to provide best advise based on her experience (Such is always much needed when dealing with lawyers). I have no doubt to recommend her as a trust lawyer in any single way! Love working with her.
