So blessed
Kylie worked for us to get temporary and then permanent custody of our nieces and nephew! She was available via email or phone when I needed her to be and always explained the next step! She is passionate and cares about the outcome and she believes the kids come first! As stressful as our situation was, I never once was concerned that our lawyer wouldn’t come through for us! As far as I am concerned the is the best in town!

Child custody case
Kylie took my case right away and explained everything up front how things would go. She was helpful in every aspect and very confident and knowledgable. You can tell Kylie and everyone around her has a real genuine care for the best outcome for child care and client. She and her team are top notch all around they prove it. She was way ahead of the game when we needed to get things done and always had everything prepared and done extremely professional and to the point. She helped me win my case and get the best possible outcome while looking at my child's and my best interest always. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Kylie!

Organized, Confident, and Hard Working
From day one, I knew that choosing Kylie was the correct decision. I was very nervous and did not know what to expect at our first meeting, as I was just served divorce papers the week before. After visiting with Kylie and taking the “first step” of getting a lawyer I felt much better. Going through a divorce is very stressful. Sometimes I felt as if I was on my own, I quickly learned that I was not. As the weeks went by, Kylie kept me informed and was able to calm me quickly when I came across situations that were upsetting (husband lying, court being cancelled, ect. . It didn’t take me long to realize that I no longer needed to put my energy into my divorce because I had Kylie on my side. Kylie was very professional at all times and told me everything that I needed to do and know. When Kylie was not available, She had/has s a fabulous support team and I was always able to get answers if I needed to call the office. Kylie always kept me informed and was very organized. If you are trying to decide on a lawyer, go with Kylie. You will be taken care of by a hard working, honest lawyer who will take care of business in the court room with your best interests in mind.

Top of line for lawyers
There is no words I can say for what Kylie Riggins has done for my daughter and I. I encountered a very upsetting ordeal concerning my daughter and Mrs. Riggins was there and has been there for every step I needed thru this. I have and will always recommend Mrs. Riggins for anything that deals with any type of family law matters. I truly believe I would not be in the life that I have with my daughter if it was not for Mrs. Riggins and how she worked very hard for us and made sure things ended up right and the way it was support to. My daughter is my life and I would and will keep doing anything in my power for her and Mrs. Riggins knows this, understood this and feels the same way as any responsible parent feels. I am very thankful for having Mrs. Riggins. Ryan

Excellent Person to work with!
From the first time I meet Kylie, everything was handled with great attention to detail. She is always very attentive and pleasant to work with. All forms of communication were received and answers were returned quickly. There were many things that I would not have thought to put into the papers, but she did and I am thankful for that today. What we were able to draw up will last, because it was well thought out. I always felt very welcomed by her and all of the staff whenever I came into the office. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and I highly recomend her to anyone.

Outstanding
From the initial meeting, Kylie took the time to explain in detail each step of the divorce process. She was knowledgeable of the process and provided professional advice. Kylie provided quick responses to questions with explanations to assist in my understanding of the legal terminology. As issues or concerns arose, she dealt with them professionally and in a very timely manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Kylie as an attorney.

Kylie did a fantastic job for me. She was extremely professional, but still very personable. She is greatly knowledgeable, honest and trustworthy. Even though it was a difficult situation, she got me the best possible outcome under the circumstances.
