Best Lawyer Out There!!!
Angela and her staff are an amazing group of people to have on your team! They have been phenomenal to work with and it was apparent from our first consultation that Angela is a family law expert. She is professional, always provides sound advice and quickly responds whenever I call or email. They stayed on top of everything! They communicated effectively and always made sure my questions were answered. They were always able to put my mind at ease. I got everything I asked for plus more in my divorce. Angela really knows what she's talking about and stands up for her clients. I honestly felt like I gained a few extra family members because they were always looking out for me and asking how I was doing. Couldn't have made a wiser choice when finding a lawyer.

Exceptional Legal Service Awaits You Here!!!
Without any reservation, I can whole heartily endorse Brighter Day Law. If you ever have the need for a personal services attorney, this is the place to come. From the moment you walk in the door you will sense the professional, caring attitude. You will be listened to, never rushed, and mostly importantly you will be given great service and great advice. Every question I had was answered thoroughly. By the way, the firm is also aptly named--their efforts absolutely made my future days “brighter.”

Exceptional Legal Representation
Angela has been my lawyer since 2018. She has been an excellent advocate and always provided me with truthful and accurate legal advice. She is a straight forward lawyer who won’t give you the run around. She is always punctual in responses. Angela and her staff has been nothing short of the epitome of professional. Angela will put in the work for your case and she does not back down from a fight. I have complete confidence in her and her staff’s ability to do everything in their power to fight for me and my family. As time and time again she has made me feel my case is important and that I am a priority.

Highly recommend Brighter Day Law
Angela is the best attorney I have ever dealt with. She is very knowledgeable and sensitive to situations. She helps ensure things are going to be okay and that she's by your side to get you through it. I will never use any other attorney but Angela for all my legal needs.

Compassionate and tenacious
Angela, and team, were great ! Going through a divorce is such a difficult and emotional time. I told her I wanted her to tell me the truth and she did. Angela was sympathetic, but at the same time the voice of reason I needed to navigate the waters of reasonable division of assets and co -parenting children. She was tenacious in getting me a fair financial settlement. I would recommend Angela to anyone looking for a divorce lawyer.

Very Professional
Hired Angela to help me move with my child. She and her employees were straight to the point, easy to work with, and helped ensure I was cleared to move by my desired time. Ironically things worked out pretty easily but knew if there was pushback Angela was ready to win.

Highly Recommend
I hired Angela during the most painful, difficult, stressful time of my life. I found her to be compassionate, direct, honest, highly-skilled, well prepared and 100% professional. She promptly and completely answered any questions I had and guided me through a challenging, unfamiliar process. In the end, the settlement I received was better than anticipated, specifically due to Angela's attention to detail. Her paralegal, Nick, is also highly skilled, intelligent, kind and easy to work with. While I hope to never require their services again, if I did, I wouldn't consider hiring anyone else.

Outstanding job with my Divorce
Angela has to be one of the best lawyers. She is not only very smart, but was exceptionally responsive to my needs. She remembered every detail concerning our conferences and quickly responded to every one of my emails or phone calls. She planned a strategy but was also very flexible in changing course as the conditions dictated. A must hire!

Excellent Source of Knowledge
Ms. Jones is delightful and intelligent. A generous source of knowledge and wealth of talent. She unfortunately could not do Pro Brono, However I would gladly employ her service if I could! She gave me a wonderful consultation. For my unique child support case, Ms. Jones gave me quite some insight! Thank you!

Highly recommend!
Angela had worked with me to obtain past support and to hold my ex-husband accountable for future payments. She is very professional, at the same time personable and understanding of my situation. She is very quick to respond to voice mails and emails.

Angela is an awesome lawyer. And an even better person. She was recommended to me by a colleague. To start, she explained the entire process and how to proceed. What paper work would be needed. She was very up front about the fee structure. I really liked that. From start to finish she was always there. When I needed a question answered, or if something wasn’t clear to me. She would explain it in plain english. At every meeting she always advised me on what the law was and what my rights were. Phone conversations and emails were the exact same way. I believe she truly cares about her clients. Not only from a lawyers perspective, but a personal level also. She recommended a realtor. Whom I used to purchase my new home with after the divorce. Even after the divorce was final. There were a couple of questions still lingering for me. She replied to my emails and answered everything. So yes, I highly recommend Angela.

Thank you so much
Living over 1300 miles away and dealing with a very difficult and stressful divorce and child custody case Angela and her team brought comfort and assurance into my life when it came to me and my children. Angela is a fair but she's tough and from the bottom of my heart I truly appreciate what she has done for me and my family. I highly, highly recommend Angela and her team and because of my experience having her as my lawyer for over a year now there is no doubt that I will hire her again when I need to. She is my #1 and I just want to say thank you. <3

Angela is an amazing person and lawyer! AAA+ in my book
She rocked my divorce case, after previously hiring another firm and being unhappy with their representation I then had her takeover! There is no messing with this woman and her law experience, she came highly recommended for a reason! AAAAA+

Difficult divorce
...but Angela handled it with grace and skill. She was sensitive to my needs and my kids' needs. Even after it has been finalized, she's still there to provide support. Strong and confident, she was able to go toe to toe (so to speak) with an uncooperative opposing side and work out a agreement.
