Helped on short notice.
Ms. Brazil represented me in the past, and when I had a motion filed against me for modification of parenting time she agreed, on short notice, to represent me again. Ms. Brazil helped right away, even though she was busy with other cases. A hearing was scheduled on her vacation week and Ms. Brazil represented me in court while on vacation. The judgement was very favorable to our asks of the court. Ms. Brazil treats return clients very well. Thank you.

Excellent lawyer, paralegal and office staff
Tressie has been a wonderful lawyer for me. She helped me through my divorce and child custody case. She was always prompt to reply to my questions and needs. She took diligent time to review what was most important for me as an individual and my children. Her honesty is true judgement of her character. She is knowledgeable, thorough, and caring. I will forever be thankful to her and her staff. I highly recommend her services to anyone in need of legal assistance.

Ms. Brazil helped my wife and I prepare our Wills. I appreciated how quickly these documents were prepared and how Ms. Brazil went through them in detail with us before we signed them. My wife and I have peace of mind now that our Wills are completed.

Wonderful Attorney!
I hired Tressie to represent me in my divorce. I struggled for a long time with the idea of divorce and how it will affect me and my children. Tressie was considerate and honest with me about how the process will work and what she felt my best options were. I always felt that Tressie truly cared about the results of my divorce and how they would affect me. Whenever I had a question, Tressie was always there to answer it. She would tell me the pros and cons of the decisions I could make. I would refer her services to anyone who needs a divorce or has any other family issue. I trust her and appreciate how easy and seamless she made this process go for me.
