Appreciation for a smooth divorce process
Ms. Watson was an incredible resource during this difficult season. She did a wonderful job of taking my complex questions and answering them clearly, in a way I could understand. Her response time was consistently quick, which helped me know she was there to support me throughout the process. I highly recommend her.

Knowledgeable and Accessible
I needed an affordable lawyer to assist me with a Child Support Modification and Child Custody Modification. Not only was Ms. Watson reasonable with her fees, she was also available to answer questions. Most of the time we used email to communicate; which Iprefer. Also, I didn't want to have to miss any work and with Ms. Watson, I didn't have to. Ms. Watson always kept me updated on my case and everything went through without a hitch. I highly recommend her for legal representation. Sincerely, Norma L. G.

Very professional
Electra Watson was the third lawyer I had for my case. If I would have chosen her at first I would have saved time and money. She is very professional and truthful. She will do what she says and when she say she will do it. I have found my lawyer and would refer Electra Watson to anyone.
