Awesome
I contacted Lacey after my divorce was stuck and my previous attorney was more interested in billing me than in getting me a trial date. Lacey was able to get a trial date set the first week after I hired her. She exuded confidence and was able to legally defeat all the irrelevant nonsense my wife's attorney tried to raise. She was attentive and empathetic, she replied my emails promptly and made me feel my case is important to her. My divorce is now final and I only wished I had contacted and hired Lacey first. Her billing was reasonable and you can easily tell that she was more interested in getting a favorable outcome for her client than just billing them. I will certainly recommend her, she did an awesome job!

Excellent Lawyer
We had a difficult child custody case where we didn't know where to turn. Our trust level was low because we learned our current lawyer was taking our money and had lied about a few things. Fortunately, someone referred us to the law firm where Lacey practiced at the time. We weren't expecting her to come into the conference room, because our appointment was with someone else, but my God am I glad she did! Lacey spent hours looking through our case and found a way to get our child back who we had temporarily lost. It was not an easy experience or decision to make; However, Lacey eased our minds by taking time to explain the process and was patient even if she had to repeat herself several times for us to understand. She was comforting and made herself available even at night and weekends. She definitely care about her clients and will make you feel as if you are her only client. Lacey always responded promptly to emails and phone calls. She kept us informed through the whole process, which was something we truly appreciated. Needless to say, we got our child back. We thank her sooo much!!!

Couldn't have asked for better representation
This was my first (and last) divorce, but I couldn't have asked for better representation. Ms. Richmond and her team kept me abreast of everything going on and answered my emails the same day. If you are on the fence about hiring her, don't give it a second thought... Sign up with her!!!

Amazing attorney!
Lacey was a blessing for me during my case. We determined what we needed and Lacey got the job done! She was always very responsive and upfront in exactly what our plan was going to be. I highly recommend her to anyone dealing with custody. She was prepared and presented a strong case in front of the judge and we won! I can't thank Lacey enough for all of her hard-work.

Great lawyer!
Lacey really made this divorce process seamless. She is knowledgeable and informative, gets the paperwork to you and filed quickly, and at the 60 day mark I had the unofficial signed paperwork by the judge. Highly recommend her!

Fantastic lawyer!
I hired Lacey Richmond in 2019. She helped guide me through my divorce and educate me. I am extremely grateful for the work she did! Lacey listens to what you want and does everything she can to help you succeed. Thank you for all the work and time you put into my case.

Highly recommend
Lacey was recommended to me by a good friend when I needed assistance for modification of a custody order. Matters of divorce and custody are never easy to walk through but Lacey made it the most enjoyable experience. I felt prioritized by her throughout the entire process -- she was reasonably available for consult, was fair regarding payment, and maintained organization and efficiency. She is knowledgable, professional, and someone I was able to put my trust in to see this delicate matter through to its solution. I would recommend Lacey to anyone needing representation for divorce or custody matters.

Exceeded my expectations
My consultation with Lacey completely surpassed my expectations. She is extremely competent in all matters family law. She explained possible outcomes and possible strategies thoroughly. She answered all of my questions and concerns, and I felt completely at ease speaking openly with her about an uncomfortable situation. At no point did I feel rushed or pressured. I left the consultation feeling at peace about my family law situation for the first time in years. I look forward to moving forward on my case with Lacey and highly recommend her services.

An Excellent Guidance by My Side
Lacey was hired for guidance on a divorce case. She was able to guide me and direct me in the best way to complete this case without issues. Her advice helped me substantially and the amount of detail on every answer was sufficient to cover all angles. She has been a strong support with an outstanding amount of knowledge. Communication was constant and on time. Thank you very much for your services.

Reliable, Knowledgeable, Professional & Results-Driven!
I hired Ms. Richmond to represent me in a child support (SAPCR) and post-marital agreement case. Words cannot express how grateful I am for her services! She helped me to pick up the pieces at a point in my life when everything seemed shattered. She is extremely professional and very thorough in her work. She clearly understood my situation and concerns and went above and beyond to deliver results that exceeded my expectations. I will continue to use Ms. Richmond for any future legal matters and highly recommend her services to anyone needing a skilled attorney in family law.

Awesome attorney!
Lacey went above and beyond, in my opinion, when handling my case. She was hired after I had a disastrous experience with another lawyer. My case was not an ordinary one and she handled it in the most professional way possible, all while making sure that I understood everything she was doing. I would not hesitate to hire her again, should the need arise. I will also recommend her to anyone needing professional services

Exactly what I needed!
Lacey was able to help me with an incredibly difficult divorce case with an incredibly difficult person. I cannot express enough gratitude for all of her help. She got me everything I was entitled to, and most importantly helped protect my son. She doesn't overcharge for services or treat you like a paycheck instead of a person. She is incredibly knowledgeable about family law and I'd recommend her to anyone in need of a divorce attorney!

Excellent
Lacey knows what single parent look for when child custody battle goes thru. She guided me what to response and not to when ex creating nuisance. Appointments on time, quick response thru email, clears all the doubts. She goes beyond ones expectations in explaining legal definitions, issues...,etc. She is more aggressive when child custody comes. I recommend Ms. Lacey
