Highly recommended!
I cannot say enough good things about this firm! Emily and Alexandra were excellent attorneys from the very start. They were both knowledgeable about legal process and the best way to proceed based on my specific set of circumstances. I always knew what to expect with my case. They returned my calls and emails promptly, and the office manager was always willing to listen and be empathic. I never felt rushed. They gave balanced advice, were efficient and prepared in court and pushed my case to conclusion. And always cost conscious, which I was relieved about. They invested their energy towards getting me the best possible outcome, and I did – full custody of my daughter. I am forever grateful for their hard work and would highly recommend them.

Post divorce proceedings
Emily handled my maintenance negotiation after my original divorce decree didn’t have an end date. Emily and her office staff kept me up on all proceedings and we came to an agreed order in a timely fashion.

Emily is an incredible lawyer... I trust her completely. She has a very knowledgable and relaxed vibe and she helped me immensely with my divorce. It was a fast, smooth process start to finish and she was a vital contributor to it's success. I recommend her BIG TIME!!! She clearly knows what she's doing and I felt very comforted by her representation.

Child Support Lawyer
I am very satisfied after having Emily represent me. Emily was able to get me above what I was expecting in my child support case. She was prepared and had me prepped before court every time. The matter was handled efficiently. We only had a handful of court proceedings. I now feel better and have a positive outlook after going through this event!!!

Loves billable hours
I regret hiring Emily as my attorney due to the fact that she has a small law firm with high overhead and therefore needs to bill a lot of hours. I hired Emily because I thought she was compassionate and seemed to be understanding about my divorce situation. I was married to a covert narcissist for about 20 years and just wanted out asking for only half of my portion of the marital assets whatever they were because I had no idea. After two years and paying her $40,000 she dropped me because I could not pay and would not pay her the additional $10,000 trial retainer fee that she required before continuing to work on my case. By the way there were no children involved in the case. I felt that she took advantage of me and my situation by playing the games that attorneys do to make money by billing more hours and making it look like they are doing you a favor. My second divorce attorney was a no BS person, worked at a larger law firm (not as much overhead), and got the job done in a reasonable amount of time and had fair billable hours.
