There for me when I needed her
With her advice, I felt confident moving forward and less scared. I wish Judy was closer to where I live. She has been more helpful to me than anyone local. She is a good person, honest, ethical, and knows how to move quickly when the situation calls for it.

Excellent, detail oriented, compassionate
Judy represented my sister in a divorce and I had to be very involved due to my sister's medical condition. Judy patiently listened, asked excellent questions, knew my sister's rights, and was compassionate about my sister's cognitive issues. Her advice and representation was excellent. My sister's divorce was final this week and we are pleased with the terms. If you hire Judy and are honest with her, just follow her advice and you can't go wrong.

Family Law
Building a successful family is challenging. When everything is going well in the household unit life is at it's most fulfilling moments. I have found just the opposite to also be true. After the wheels fall off of the bus a catastrophic crash seems to be the inevitable result. In the middle of all the chaos and pain, all I had to offer was a prayer. The answer to my prayer was Mrs. Judy Oxford. She has represented me on three different occasions. Two in regard to my children and once for a divorce. Her integrity is impeccable. Mrs. Oxford's work ethic and professionalism is outstanding; head and shoulders above. The experience, wisdom, and legal knowledge that she brings to the table is unmatched. Thank you Mrs. Oxford for the compassion and support that you have shown my family. My God bless you for being a gift to our community.

Fantastic Legal Mind and Incredibly Sharp
Ms Oxford represented me in an extremely difficult high conflict case complete with false allegations, improper behavior, contempt allegations, and her work was outstanding. Just her responses to motions resulted in the motions being dropped every time before appearing in court, and her skillful planning and sage advice resulted in my being well positioned for a successful mediation. The most important thing I can say is hire her, and then do exactly what she says.

Child Custody
I had a very difficult post divorce change of custody case. Judy's knowledge of family law and father's rights, was the difference in us being successful. I would recommend Judy Oxford to anyone.

Excellent Lawyer
Judy did a very good job representing me and was able to negotiate a very favorable outcome for me. Offered me very good counsel and enabled me to have a voice in the decision of the direction of the case. Was very straight forward and honest and did not sugar coat things or pressure me to go forward with something I was uncomfortable with. It was a pleasure to work with Judy.

Happy with Judy's services.
I was very pleased with the work Judy did for me. I used her when I was going through a divorce and she did everything in a timely manner. I would use her services in the future.

Difficult Divorce Case
Judy's knowledge and expertise during my divorce proceedings gave me comfort during a very difficult time for me and my children. She was upfront and honest with me about what to expect and equipped me with what I needed to get the results that were best for the children. She was gentle and compassionate with my children as well.

I went to mediation and settled before it went to court. Just wanted it over, she done a good job taking care of my interests.

Excellent Legal Representative
We hired Judy to help us with a child custody case that was rather complicated. Although the case was settled out of court, Judy was extremely helpful in explaining the process and requirements. Being unfamiliar with legal cases and attorneys, we hired another attorney prior to Judy who did not care about the case, didn’t listen, and basically sided with the other attorney. Judy was the exact opposite and we learned a great deal from her. I can’t say enough about her and would highly recommend her.

Confidence in Representation
Our Family has been represented by Judy Oxford on multiple occasions covering a variety of concerns. Her attention to detail and commitment earn her a top score in our book and a reputation of being knowledgable and hard working for those she represents. -Matt S.

Professional Representation
Divorce is not an easy process, and a very emotional time. Judy was able to keep me focus during the process, she was very up front and professional explaining the details of the case, and was always very clear of the cost of her services. I would highly recommend Judy.

Judy did a great job in the Divorce & Custody
I must point out to anyone looking for someone you can completely trust it is Judy. My family has been using Judy for many years now and we all recommend her to others. She also has handled my Will and mediation in the past. The divorce case was extremely complex and the out come was positive for my children and I. If it wasn’t for Judy I don’t think I would have custody of my children today. Thanks again Judy! Kevin W. Spring Hill TN

Excellent, professional and hard working
Judy has been a blessing to my family. She worked tirelessly to fight for my rights in a very difficult situation. Every roadblock that was thrown up was turned to an advantage for us. There is no one that I would trust more to help me in any situation. The process resulted in success that I never imagined and it is due to her professionalism and hard work.

Professional and detail-oriented
Judy was thorough and made sure I had just as many rights as my opponent who tried to use their status to intimidate me and place me in an unfavorable position. I believe she leveled the playing field and made the facts and "the law" assure a fair settlement - and that was the last thing my opponent wanted.

Custody/Visitation Appeal
Mrs. Oxford's experience and expertise are evident in the ongoing pursuit of my Appeal. She was honest and upfront about what this process would involve before she accepted any money from me. It was evident in the briefs she wrote for my Appeal that she had paid attention to the many details of this case. She spent many hours reading through a court reporter file that was six inches thick. She is a dedicated attorney and it is safe to assume you will receive 100 percent of her effort. I highly recommend Judy Oxford to anyone.

Excellent legal representation during a difficult time.
Judy Oxford represented me when I filed for divorce. She was a strong advocate for my best interests and helped guide me through the process quickly and effectively. Divorce is never easy and having the legal portion handled professionally and the unfamiliar steps explained clearly made it less stressful for me. I highly recommend Judy based on my experience.

Waste of time
Wasted money (Approx $3500) with her trying to get a divorce. She filed with the county , but didn't do much of anything else for me. She wasn't getting anything done. We never heard back from wife. She said she couldn't force her to respond to my divorce filing. Well, I have a new lawyer and they can force everything necessary to get things moving. Ms, Oxford picked up a case involving a child custody and she was appointed the child's custodian. We decided I needed to find a new lawyer. Wasted money. NEVER received a refund or anything. I wouldn't use Ms. Oxford for a traffic ticket. I have an attorney that would run circles around Ms. Oxford. In my opinion, she was a total waste of money in this particular incident.
