We hired April for an alimony modification case. We started working with her at one firm but then she left there. We followed her to her new firm at Moses Townsend and Russ. We were told that we had a strong and easy case. And then... We went down the rabbit hole. A year and over 30,000 in fees later.... We get to court. The judge runs all over this girl. She's flustered, was not only not helpful, she actually damaged us. We said we would have been better off if we had brought our little baby granddaughter in to represent us. At least the judge would have been charmed by her cuteness. It was a nightmare. Literally we could not have had a worse outcome. The worst part was seeing the nonsense on the billable hours. And being billed for a paralegal and then April for the same stuff and the work product was still terrible. April was newly engaged when we had our day in court. She was more interested in showing off her ring to the clerks in the court then handling the case. It was a sham. And after it was over, she said, well, I know this isn't what you wanted. But that's how it goes sometimes. And she walked off in her cute little dress and high heels without another thought about us in her head. I guess that's what comes out of 4th tier law schools. But you'd expect more from a firm that had a good reputation. Save your money. Represent yourself and bring a cute baby to goo-goo-ga-ga. You'll have about as good a chance with that as with her.

I could not have asked for a better attorney than April. She made my custody case for my daughter seem effortless. She was strong in the courtroom and made me feel 100% confident that I would win my case. Even when an appeal was filed after I won, she didn't back down and shut down any chance of another hearing. I've worked with several lawyers over the years and she is by far the most knowledgeable, the fiercest, and the nicest one I have ever had. She was always quick responding to my questions and explained everything that was happening step by step throughtout the process. She is wonderful and me and my family owe her our eternal gratitude for all of her hard work and devotion.

I was on the other side of a case against April several months ago. Through this experience I found April to be an excellent attorney. She was extremely prepared at each court appearance and was a great advocate for her client. I would strongly recommend her.
