Look No Further!
I will never regret walking through the doors of this office for help! Dawn Korman and her team were outstanding! I had a lot of concerns and during the initial consultation Dawn laid out what to expect throughout the legal process and educated me on what steps should be taken. It's hard to understand everything sometimes as the arduous process is going along, but as everything came together towards the end, I realized that I had chosen the right team to represent my family. Custody issues can be extremely hard on everyone and having this law office in our corner was amazing. We will always be grateful for the great job they did!

High Performance
Excellent experience. The team walked me through every step of the process from the beginning so there were no surprises. They answered my countless questions when problems arose through the process and gave me all the options to make an informed decision. They were also instrumental in protecting my rights as the petitioner for the short and long term. I highly recommend them.
