Best Value
Rita is a consistent and thorough attorney with many years of practical experience. She is fair and I considered her services to be of great value. She doesn't waste time or charge $300 to read an email.

Excellent
I hired Rita after my ex husband filed for divorce in 2017. She helped me throughout the whole divorce process and was able to correct errors in my decree with no hesitation. I feel like she lit some fire underneath them when they would try to delay with the changes or signing. I am thankful for her helping out a mother of 3.

Professional Excellence
In an urgent last minute situation Ms. Boyd offered to step in an help without hesitation. I had several tough deadlines ahead of me and was frantic to be honest. Her calm professional behavior prevailed and the "perfect storm" I was headed towards dissolved. I could not be happier! I originally thought I found her by accident however looking back ...it was meant to be! I am grateful and would recommend her to anyone. If I ever need legal representation again, she will be my first call this time!

Rita Helped Me.
Divorce is hard. Having the assurance everything is done and done correctly is invaluable. My experience with Rita Boyd was entirely positive. I felt at ease with her expertise and demeanor. She handled my case quickly and effectively. Rita's guidance during my divorce was very helpful during a difficult time and I am grateful for her service. So much so, i decided to submit this review. Thank you Rita!

Great divorce attorney
I am going through a tough divorce situation and had not been able to sleep or relax until I hired Rita Boyd. (The first atty. I had did nothing for me). My confidence in Ms. Boyd's ability and genuine concern is off the charts. I can assure anyone needing help from a lawyer, this is the firm to hire.

Extreme Intelligence
This attorney went above and beyond what we expected. Her diligence and insight into our options in a very nasty family law situation is impressive. We recommend having this lawyer in your corner if at all possible!

Creative Peace Maker
From the first time I walked into her office from the day we walked out of court, Rita has been an extreme comfort. Making the decision to get divorce is a tough one with a lot of questions. Rita answered all my questions and was always available. No matter what day or time, she was right there with me. She is extremely knowledgeable which allows her to use creative approaches to bring concensus to both parties. My divorce was not typically and I was in fear before I met her. I strongly recommend her over any other attorney in her category. She is firm, smart, and creative. Thank you Rita for saving my life. You are the best!!!

Mother of two
I am a mother of two going through a long and lengthy divorce. Been separated since April 2013. Had a previous lawyer which did absolutely nothing for me so I contacted Rita Boyd. I told her my situation and she instantly said Yes she could help. She has proven to be very efficient. Everything she has said has been spot on. She is very strict and very up front which is what I like. I feel my lawyer should be open and honest with me which she is. There were a few obstacles she had to overcome then she advised to me a different scenario. I was hesitant at first but followed her advice. Well following her advice is one of the best things I have ever done. Rita Boyd is a top class lawyer. She will fight for you til the end. I highly recommend her.

Great experience
Rita has handled my custody, divorce and a financial issue for me. I am father and recieves sole custody of my children when this rarely happens for men. I also recieved a $160,000 bill for when my xe was in rehab and Rita was able to get this bill down to $6,500. When I chose to stop doing things my way and listened to Rita good things happened for me. I will always use her in the future.
