Compassionate and Experienced Family Law Attorney
Ms. Gholston is very experienced and compassionate about family law. She helped my family to develop a custody/visitation plan that would work in the best interest of my child. Ms. Gholston explored all available options and presented various visitation plans that would be suitable for my school-aged child. She was knowledgeable about previous custody cases and was up-to-date with standard visitation laws in Alabama. She is understanding and exceeds the standards when providing services to her clients. She is very professional and focuses solely on her client's needs.

Knowledgeable Estate Planning Attorney
As a client of Ms. Gholston, my family and I were able to establish estate plans (wills, power of attorney, living wills). She created them in a timely fashion, reviewed them with us so that we understood everything. I highly recommend her for your legal needs.
