JJ and her office staff were outstanding! With the information that she provided me in the beginning, I was able to use her time wisely and had access to the resources that I needed. I felt that she had mine and my daughter's (with special needs) best interest at heart and not her own financial gain. I chose to be kept informed on a weekly basis and her office followed through with that request. Not only did JJ help me with legal resources but she was also able to suggest other community resources available in the Central Florida area. At each step of the process, she gave me counsel on my different options with their pro's and con's. I always felt that I was making an informed decision in my case. She is excellent with dealing with adversaries who are stubborn and unrealistic. She protected me and my daughter from a bully. SHE IS THE VERY BEST FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY in the greater Central Florida area.

JJ is compassionate, effective, thorough, organized, patient, and honest. She helped me with many issues related to divorce, child support, custody, relocation, QDRO, unpaid medical costs, negotiation/mediation, and so forth. Her advice saved me countless hours of undue concern and kept me from making wrong choices. She was able to resolve issues created by previous unhelpful attorneys and created a path of reconciliation that I never thought possible with my ex. Her willingness to serve exceeding my expectations and quite frankly, surprised me, that she would care so much more than I ever expected an attorney to do.

I found myself with the need for family law representation a couple of year ago. I was most fortunate to have a friend recommend Ms. Dahl for my consideration to represent my interests. From the initial consultation it was clear to me that she possessed the necessary talent, skills, and determination to insure a successful and satisfactory outcome to a sensitive and difficult situation. Throughout the time of her representation every detail was given the highest degree of attention and scrutiny.
I am truly happy with the decision to retain Ms. Dahl and for the professional representation she provided. Without hesitation she was constantly vigilante to insure my best interest were safeguarded while carefully maneuvering through difficult and trying negotiations. Her efforts and representation resulted in a fair and equitable resolution to a very trying ordeal. I was constantly aware of developments as they arose and fully informed about the potential implications on my particular case. This level of attention and professionalism displayed by Ms. Dahl was further reinforced by her staff in a caring and discrete manner.
