I wanted to thank Linda Stanley and her staff for all the help during my divorce. There were extremely helpfu and professionall during the whole process and handled the paperwork and filings, and made any updates as neccessary to filing documents. Without them I never would have gotten through the divorce process. They had everything ready for the Court appearance and that all went very smooth also.

As anyone dealing with divorce and custody issues knows, this can be an incredibly stressful time. Linda's calm demeanor really helped settle me during the process. She kept me informed about each step along the way, as well as counseled me through it. She used her years of experience to make recommendations saying, "I can't tell you what to do, but ..." It was empowering to have her expertise in my corner.
Because my ex-husband is not an easy man to deal with, we had to go back multiple times. I made the mistake (due to financial struggles) of using a friend rather than retaining Linda's services for one of our court battles. It ended terribly! Thankfully, I was able to hire Linda to come back in and fix what my "friend" had done. She was able to reach a settlement with my difficult ex-husband out of court - which ended up saving me money!
Overall, my experience with Linda has been awesome. Although, I hope to not need her services again, if I do, I will not hesitate to call her.

Linda Stanley helped me on different occasions. In both cases, she was thorough in her examination of the issues, provided excellent options for resolution of the problems, and prepared two law suits with the appropriate amount of detail, excellent advice and discussion with all parties. In the first case, she guided us through mediation, to an acceptable conclusion; in the second case, she was able to reach a solution through discussion of the parties, rather than proceeding to the next step of mediation. We have been very pleased with Linda's efforts, demeanor, advice, and solutions. She is a fair, knowledgeable, experienced, and very competent lawyer.
