At the start of my five year divorce I had hired a lawyer to represent me. with-in the first year I was accumulating a big bill with no results; so I fired that lawyer and found April. April from the start showed results. Where my other lawyer was stagnant, April was very proactive and provided awesome representation. Day one April provided a detailed game plan for the divorce and it encompassed the best interest for me and my children. She explained each step of the process and the steps we needed to take to ensure a fair outcome, the whole time ensuring the interests of my children were also being addressed. She was an awesome negotiator and never backed down until the results were as fair as possible. This divorce was a long hard divorce and throughout the years, yes years, April never left my side and continued to represent me. I know during these years life happened and events took place for her, some good and some not so good, but she was always there working for me somehow. I know I was not her only client but when we sat down together I always felt like the most important one she had. The outcome of the divorce ended up being very positive for myself and my children. I know all this happened because of all her hard work and negotiations behind the scenes that I was unaware of. Having dealt with two lawyers during this ordeal really opened my eyes and allowed me to see that one lawyer only saw dollar signs and the other saw a person who needed help that she could provide. I would highly recommend April and cant thank her enough for all she did for my girls and I. She never quit or gave up on us even thought this was a tough case for her to take. So just know that she will fight for you and give you all that she has to make things as fair as possible and never leave your side. She is an amazing lawyer.

April is a great communicator and gets back to you within a day, if not immediately. She is astute in her ability to take into consideration all factors of the case and give the best counsel as to how to proceed.
