Great Legal Help!
I used Miss Joslin in a custody guardianship situation and was very pleased with the professional, kind, caring and effective way that my case was handed by her office. I would highly recommend her!

Professional and truthful
After calling a few attorneys, I was very fortunate to find Mrs. Joslin. She took the time to listen to my case and understand everything that had happened. She asked for a little background about me and for a couple documents. She presented my case to the court and was able to get my case dismissed. I did not have to take several hours out of many different days to go to court for a minor offense that could have resulted in fines, loss of license, and possibly even jail time. I am very thankful for her services and will use her services again in the future if I may ever need them, which hopefully I won't. I would highly recommend Mrs. Joslin to anyone I know needing an attorney.

Will Preparation
Ms. Joslin recently prepared my will and related documentation. She was thorough, efficient, and extremely helpful. In addition, she was a joy to work with. Her positive attitude and professional nature were exactly what I was looking for.

I would like to say THANK YOU. Soraya made me feel very comfortable and showed compassion and genuinely cared about my case and thats few and far between. Charges against me were dropped.

Couldn't have been any better.....
I have a neighbor that was in need of a REAL lawyer. The one they were going to was not up to par, I don't even know if they were on the same course. I heard from another friend that Soraya was the person to solve it all. Shortly after sender her there, the case was over and my neighbor was victorious!
