An Attorney who cares!
I consulted with several attorneys but knew Alicia was the right one for my unique circumstances before the end of our call. She was very understanding of the situation and successfully guided me through a messy divorce. Her and her assistant were easy to contact and always available to talk when I needed. Fees were fair and reasonable. If you are looking for an attorney who is not only knowledgeable about the law, but is also empathetic-I would highly recommend retaining Alicia Storm!

Great Family Attorney!
Alicia has been responsive, thorough, and a real warrior when dealing with my mess of a situation. She was referred to me by my past attorney as a likely "good fit". He was right. Alicia has been receptive to my goals and realistic about my expectations. I admire that kind of honesty and I would definitely recommend her.

Motion to enforce and child support modification
Helped in enforcing the sale of a marital home owned by my ex wife and I. Put together and presented information that proved that my ex wife was hiding income which inflated child support.

Efficient, strong, and determined
Alicia has handled my custody case for over a year. She has been flawless, precise, and fearless in court. She helps me to prepare, and has never not returned calls, texts, or emails. She is always on it!! Highly recommend!!

Alicia Storm is a gale force to be reckoned with.
I hired Alicia to help with a highly contentious divorce. She has handled the constant harassment of the opposing party with grace and poise. While being a resolute professional, she has the admirable quality of being kind while asserting firm and specific boundaries in the face of wild accusations and bald-faced lies by the opposing party. I will be forever grateful for her skills in identifying my post-abuse fears and responding with "I'll take care of this" I absolutely could not have done this without her.

Alicia Storm
I've had the pleasure of working with Alicia over the last few years, on a few different cases. The most recent one, was a long, exhausting, tough battle with a very uncooperative opposing party. I was looking to change domicile and bring my minor child with me, across the country. Alicia worked tirelessly, and communicated every little detail with me. She fought hard for me in the court room and was strong and assertive, yet still professional while getting our points across. I have the upmost confidence in Alicia, as she has never let me down. Every case we've battled together, we've won. She is there for me after hours when I have questions or concerns, and always came to court prepared and ready to fight. I sent documents upon documents to her, I'm sure an overload to say the slightest. But she tackled it well. Organized everything neatly and was able to access them quick while in the court room. I highly recommend Alicia for custody/parenting time issues. This domicile move was a huge win for me, and she did everything possible to make this happen. Thank you Alicia!!!

Child abuse case
Alicia Storm went above and beyond with our case, we had our consultation with her and she took notes and contact case workers and other lawyers. She was on time to every court hearing, she listened to what we had to say and believe and agreed our case. She was behind us in every step! We love Alicia!

Heartfelt Thank You
Alicia and the Tara Sharp and associates practice were there for my family in me through one of the most difficult periods in our lives. From the initial consultation through the last hearing and the final paperwork. Alicia was there with a combination of expertise knowledge and compassion for our situation. Alicia and the practice were not only responsive to our needs but it anticipated things that were not considered. This made in what seemed an impossible process to one that was as seamless as possible. This gave us the best outcome that we could expect with the situation at hand. A heartfelt thanks to you and your team. Sincerely Brian

Keeps me informed and takes action promptly
I first consulted with Alicia regarding divorce proceedings and decided to hire her and another attorney to represent me through those proceedings. Alicia has always been quick to answer any questions I have. I have absolute confidence in her ability as an attorney. The proceedings are still ongoing, so there isn't much detail right now, but I have already been able to tell that Alicia is not only empathetic, but she is absolutely an advocate for me.

Excellent lawyer
Been working with Alicia on my divorce. She is great and goes extra mile to make sure u understand everything going on. I would recommend her or Tara Sharp. And if have any other legal issues will be for sure using her. Alicia is very professional but also very understanding about any concerns.

Love Alicia Storm!!
Alicia Storm goes above and beyond when she is your lawyer. I felt like I was venting to a friend who could help us through are terrible time. She really cared about us and that's a rare quality in a lawyer these days. She is an amazing lawyer and anyone who retains her is lucky to have this fire cracker, she is smart. She knows what she is doing and she truly cares about her clients!! I have already been recommending her to grow d's and family and will continue to do so.

Storm fights with her clienrs
I hired Storm when CPS took my children and placed them with their Fathers. She is a lawyer who will help navigate the conversations between custodial parents and is loyal to her clients. She quickly responds to any and all emails; when I was loosing my mind she was able to keep me focused and take the next step. She was able to help me regain placement of my children by articulating what needed to be said or done. At the start of my case I did not realize that hiring an attorney does not gaurentee victory if the client is not willing to cooperate the attorney has no ground to represent the client. When I realized my behavior was that in question by the court I was able to give her/courts the behavior deemed necessary to regain placement of my children.

Section 45 Hearing
Alicia was there for me and my family though out our case. Starting with the consultation to the last court date. It was a very difficult case involving competing parties and MCI. Her and Tara did a great good on the case and won it for us. If you ever have to go through with a section 45 hearing I would recommend using her.

Hired Tara for 2 custody battles one of which was a very bad situation for the child. The second case we were passed onto Alicia and had the privilege to work with her. We had gotten what we wanted out of the cases. The only thing is they were not Always prompt back with a response. Paying a flat rate verses by the hour, I was ok with not getting the response immediately unless it was absolutely needed for guidance. I would hire Alicia again if needed and I have recommended Tara and Alicia to a few different people where they are now clients as well.

Mistakes her lack of Emotional Intelligence for Strength
She is brash and makes decisions without thinking through what makes her client actually look like an individual with character. She is angry and foul mouthed as well as dressed sloppily.
Response from Alicia Storm May 17, 2021
Hello, As you have posted anonymously, I cannot reach out to you directly to try to resolve this. However, I am unable to think of who I might have consulted with recently who would fit the situation you describe. I am unsure how you have concluded I dress sloppily, as I have not had an in-person consultation since prior to Covid in 2020. While I dress more casually when I'm not appearing in court, I dress professionally for court and mediations. I believe you may have me confused with someone else. However, if you'd like to contact me at my office, I'd be happy to discuss things with you at no charge and provide you any assistance or resources within my power. Take care.

During the consultation, Alicia took notes on a yellow pad of paper. She stated she would get an extension on the court hearing, which she did. She did this as to give herself time to prepare. When we arrived at the courthouse, she came in with the same yellow pad, with only the notes she took, and nothing else. She was not prepared at all. As the hearing progressed, she leaned in to ask me questions, and did not stand and argue anything. Due to her lack of preparation, she lost my case immediately, and has now caused our family a great deal of grief. Unfortunately, this also involves 3 small children, who have since been a victim of abuse; mental, emotional, verbal and physical. After giving her all the money we had available, as well weekly payments, we are left unable to fight this Injustice that has been done to our family.

Response from Alicia Storm March 1, 2018
Dear Anonymous, I am sorry that you are so unhappy with your representation. I wanted to reach out to you personally, but even after I reviewed our files and my notes, I was unable to determine your identity based on the information you provided. I was also unable to locate any messages or emails after a hearing that might shed light on either your identity or displeasure. I am sorry. I'd be happy and willing to discuss this with you to see whether there is anything else that can be done, either by myself or perhaps through a referral to someone else. If that is something you would like, please feel free to contact me at the office, or email me at [email protected] Sincerely, Alicia Storm

Family Attorney | Apr 08
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Ms. Storm is a very conscientious and zealous advocate for her clients. She makes herself very available to other attorneys and her clients, and is incredibly responsive to both of them, which is actually the most valuable thing you can give your clients, and is something other attorneys really appreciate. I’ve worked across the aisle from her in matters, and have mediated cases between her and other attorneys in the past, and at all times I’ve found her very knowledgeable of the law, of the details of her clients needs, and about how to resolve them. In my experience she is pragmatic and committed to finding the right solution to the issues, not simply about pushing things needlessly to trial."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Feb 06
Relationship: Co-worker
"I strongly endorse this lawyer. If you are looking for an attorney who cares, yet is a bulldog in the courtroom... Attorney Storm is your attorney. She works very hard for her clients while listening to their concerns and putting their needs first. I would strongly endorse Attorney Storm for any person going through a family law issue."
Family Attorney | Dec 05
