A perfect fit from our first meeting!
I knew within minutes of our initial consultation that Esther was the ideal lawyer for me. She shines with a combination of warmth and wisdom that was exactly what I was looking for in someone to represent me in my divorce. When I explained that my soon to be ex-husband and I were hoping for the most amicable divorce experience possible she assured me that would be her goal while also making sure I knew all of my options and sought the most fitting settlement for my situation. Esther provided astute legal counsel in a way that respected my wishes to work with my spouse in genial manner and worked tirelessly to help craft a settlement that worked well for us both. She and her paralegal, Wanese, helped guide me through the at times overwhelming prospect of gathering all of the necessary information and making timely decisions in a wonderfully supportive way. And they didn’t stop there. After the divorce was final they continued to follow-through with paperwork and filings that needed to be completed to divide property making sure that each I was dotted and T crossed. I would highly recommend Esther to anyone looking for an outstanding divorce lawyer. She provided both empathy and excellent legal representation during one of the most challenging times of my life.

Very Professional
It was difficult to come into a consultation for a divorce. Divorce is a very tough and emotional process. In my initial consultation, Esther took her time to listen to my case. It was then that I knew I was in great hands. Whenever I had a question (at any time or day), I was able to ask Esther or her paralegal, Wanese. They both handled my case swiftly and professionally.
