I had the pleasure of working with Kelly Giraudo, of Butler, Giraudo & Meister, P.C law firm. Mrs. Giraudo handled my case from beginning to end with great intergrity, class, and professionalism. I was confident in the work and commitment that Kelly and her team dedicated to my case, and trusted the process in which great pacients was required from me to ensure positive results in the handling of my case involving the allocation of parental rights concerning my minor daughter. Mrs. Giraudao promptly replied to emails and was very thourough in explinations of her answers to my questions. Mrs. Girauado was able to exhibit great time management and attention to detail in the midst of handling multiple cases to inclue mine. I would also like to thank the law office's professional paralegals Mrs. Kelly McCall for being very pleasant and Mrs. Molly Goforth for her work as well. I looked for a law office who would be straightforward and also a lawyer who's values aligned with my own and Butler, Giraudo & Meister, P.C was a great choice. Not only did Mrs. Girauado successfully represent me but also concluded my case with the results in that I was seeking in having majority parenting. Thank you Kelly, I would highly recommend to anyone.

Kelly was compassionate, caring and very competent in our case. She listened, documented, believed in us and fought for us. The court system is not perfect but it's the best thing we have so there will always be compromises. In our experiences the Judge has always been key to the process and we could tell he respected Kelly as a lawyer and also as a person. We felt Kelly was committed to our case from beginning to end and we will definitely use her again.

I would not recommend. Initially consulted with Susan Butler who came highly recommend for a custody case for my child. I was impressed with Susan and decided to retain her. Then ever so slyly our case was then passed off to the junior member of the firm Kelly Giraudo. This upset me and made me very nervous but I was reassured Susan would be very closely involved and when you retain Susan you "retain the whole team". Long story short, Susan was not involved at all and the Junior attorney who handled our case did it horribly and she was literally an embarrassment to herself and us in the court room. The more senior attorney for my spouse wiped the floor her "arguments" and her closing argument was down right embarrassing and heartbreaking because I knew I had lost my little one.
They charged me for hours upon hours of case preparation over the weeks leading up to and the weekend before the hearing and literally had reviewed nothing and did not look over an ounce of the documented schedules, events, text message, all documenting the neglect and misconduct my spouse had committed. Complete waste of 10s of thousands of dollars and I lost primary custodianship of my child, I had to go from having her 50-60% of the time down to 4 days a month. . Save yourself the time and heartache and Avoid this firm. They are inexperienced and overconfident and I felt they were only looking for large retainers they could burn up literally doing nothing.

I would like to leave a review for Kelly Giraudo. My husband and I hired her a year and a half ago to help us with changing my old divorce decree with my ex husband in order to get more visitation with my son. She was and is a thorough, compassionate, hardworking and fair attorney who ALWAYS kept my sons best interest at heart. She was always very straight forward with me when I went off the deep end at times, yet kept a cool and calm composure. I cannot say enough good things about her and all of the administrative staff at her office. Because of her, I have received above and beyond all of the visitation I had initially requested with my son. She is one in a million and will work her butt off! I cannot imagine working with any other attorney. She is a God send!

Kelly is amazing! She took time to really understand my case, needs and wants. She took the time to explain all my options and helped me get the best possible outcome for my given situation. Kelly is very strong, direct and gets straight to the point. No time was ever wasted. She is very knowledgeable and truly shows compassion for her clients. As a noncustodial parent, I would highly recommend Kelly Giraudo.

I went to Kelly after researching attorney's and their history. She was extremely thoughtful, knowledgable, friendly, down to earth and very strong fisted. I was seeking custody of my 2 daughters, especially after they were taken from their mother. Kelly replied to my emails in a more than timely manner. She answered any phone calls and made sure she stayed on top of our opposing attorney as to not like dust colelct on the case. She filed all of the appropriate motions and stayed on top of the process. I did obtain custody of my daughters which I always thought was impossible for a man. She listened to every word we said and every word in our emails and made sure that she answered every quesition pretty quickly. She didn't accept any "beating around the bush" from the other attorney or my ex wife. She took my case almost personally which I think helped her in the fight. I would more than highly recommend her, especially for dads trying to get custody.

Kelly drew up all the paperwork for my divorce. Gave me good advice, provided quick responses to questions, and walked me through the process. Also helped me with a homestead waiver so I could purchase a home while my divorce was still in progress.

Kelly was very good to work with on my adoption case. She is very personable and easy to work with. The only issue I had was with the initial start up of the case. It seemed like I was forgot about and when we finally got the case rolling it went very smooth and fast. I would highly recommend Kelly G to handle your adoption case.
