I would absolutely not recommend this lawyer to represent you! When we were figuring out child support from my ex to me she let the other lawyer tell her what the dollar amount was going to be and it wasn't the right amount for the percentage that your spouse is required to pay for two kids. The whole time in court I was telling her that was wrong and she didn't say anything until we left the court room and then said that we could come back to that. While they were doing the calculations they never took into consideration ALL of my ex's income and my lawyer never stuck up for me telling my ex's lawyer that it wasn't right and that we didn't use ALL of his income, she let my ex and his lawyer walk all over me! At the end she never even looked at his assets to have them split with me so I got nothing, signed off on the house and I got nothing! I have never been through this before so I needed the help of an expert and she was by far NOT an expert! On top of the fact that it costed me $2,000 retainer fee and then when everything was said and done another $800.00 so all together $2800 and I ended with not a fair amount in child support and nothing else!! My divorce was finalized on Jan 5, 2015 and I didn't know that the "divorce decree" that I got sent to me from Teresa's office wasn't my finalized divorce decree until now, when I reached out to my lawyer to see if she could give me a copy, she didn't even one! She had to send an email to my ex's lawyer to send her a copy of it! Terrible, terrible! I would have expected that my lawyer would have been on top of getting all of this stuff for me considering I have no idea what I'm looking for and she did! Now, I am waiting on this divorce decree so I can provide it to my bank so I can get approved for a mortgage to better myself and my kids and I have to wait until it is convenient for my ex's lawyer to send it! Very Very Very Very disappointed
