Helped out our Family!
Brenda Sprader did a great job! Responsive and compassionate are two words that come to mind. Brenda has been fantastic in helping with our estate planning needs and even after the paperwork was in place, Brenda has continued to be there to answer questions, assist with additional items and truly cares about us as a family.

Custody
I hired Attorney Sprader to handle my divorce. I have 3 children and my now ex-husband was abusive. I have been divorced 3 years now and Ms. Sprader has made sure my children are safe. Their father still has supervised parenting time to spite his several attempts to gain regular parenting time and more of it. She made sure he had to pay a good portion of my attorney fees. She is knowledgeable about divorce and custody issues. I still have her retained for my case and I would recommend her to anyone. She bills fair too.
