So Happy We Found Her
I never write reviews... however; Ms. Chavez deserves recognition. She handled our adoption case. She is an awesome person and attorney all the way around. She was very knowledgeable and compassionate about our case just as much as we were. She handled our case in a professional and very timely manner. We are so happy with her and our outcome! We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an attorney.
