I was devastated by my divorce, I had no knowledge of the process nor was i in the state of mind to make any decisions regarding the divorce. April was knowledgeable and caring. She made sure I was informed in detail on the process. She knows the law. At one point in the mediation the mediator and the opposing Atty challenged her knowledge on alimony, they were positive they were right, April stood her ground and after all was said and done, April was right, and I was impressed with her confidence in her knowledge.
I would hire her again in a heartbeat. Thank you April for caring.

April came recommended by my lawyer Sonya Ground as a help with the mediation for my divorce. When I met April she heard what my case was about and figured out ways to find more about things that I didnt know were possible. At mediation she went over the things that I needed to talk about and if there was anything else I could bring up. During that time she explained to me what was offered in case I didnt understand and was very helpful the whole time. We were able to come to an agreement that both parties were agreeable to and not have to come back for another session.
If anyone came to me asking if I knew someone that could help out with a legal problem I would tell them to find her.

April is an attorney with a heart. After the first time speaking with April, I knew I had to hire her to represent me. She was very understanding and compassionate but most of all she knows the law. Her confidence gave me peace of mind. She was very upfront with what she needed and what to expect going forward in the case and she was 100% correct in the outcome. April is not one of those attorneys that runs up fees at every opportunity. If I were in need of an attorney in the future there is no doubt April Stancliff will be my first call.
I have nothing but respect for April, she is truly a blessing.
