We used Stephanie on two occasions. Initially, we hired Stephanie Ames to do an adoption for my husband and I. As with many family cases, it can be an emotional roller coaster. Since this was our first adoption experience we had many concerns, questions, and fears. From the beginning we were given advice, straight forward,and most importantly correct information. Not only was she there for us as parents, she was an advocate for our daughter.
We then utilized stephanie and her knowlege for navigating a child custody case. Child custody is an emotional time where all of your worst fears come to light. I can say with 100% confidence that she is VERY knowledgeable when it comes to the laws and process of family court!
She cared about our case- which is a great quality in a lawyer. Through the entire process, Stephanie was always there any time we needed her.

Stephanie has been a godsend with the custody case we've been going through. She was able to get things rolling quickly. We now have the ability to regain the relationship with our child.
