Deborah is the best attorney I have ever had. Not only is she pleasant, but she is also incredibly intelligent, savvy, and realistic. She can work with the most difficult people and come out on top. I cannot thank her enough for her help in my case resolving a 10-year issue with my ex. I had real evidence of unacceptable behavior. Several other attorneys along that 10-year period were not interested in addressing the core problem that had gone on way too long with the custody of my daughter. Then I found Deborah. Deborah dug in, and made a huge difference by representing these wrongs extremely well to the judge. She's organized, strategic, and she cares. She made a difference in my life and especially my daughter's life for which I will always be grateful.

Ms. Cook is a very loving compassionate person who understands her clients needs. She is on the ball and takes care of business. She is also a true counselor. She has been there for me when I have been fearful. She has helped me to grow as a person through the horrible experience of having to go through a horrible divorce and dealing with child custody.
Ms. Cook is optimistic. She has helped me see the light through this dark tunnel. She has given me hope for a better tomorrow and has helped me to see my worth.
Ms. Cook is excellent in the court room. She is a no nonsense attorney. I am inspired by her.
She shines from the inside out and has been not only my attorney but my friend.
I would recommend Ms. Cook to anyone who is looking for an attorney who cares.
She doesn't blow people off like other attorneys I have met and She isn't fake! She is the real deal!!!
I am great full to have been led to her!!

I endorse this lawyer. Deborah is an excellent attorney and outstanding person. I referred several individuals to Deborah and all have been completely satisfied. Deborah is caring, hard-working and extremely ethical. If I am ever in need of a family law attorney, Deborah would be my first choice.
