I had a very pleasant experience with Stacy and her law office. I felt that my divorce was handled quickly and efficiently and without too many issues. It was nice to have the Clio app to receive documents and keep updated on my account, as well as to correspond when needed.

Contencious Divorce with Minor Children
Stacy has given sound advice. She understands the legal system and is able and willing to help her clients work toward getting an outcome.which is better for themselves and their children. She was patient with me and willing to listen and learn what I desired for my children and myself.

Caring AND TAKES CARE OF BUSINESS
If you need an attorney who gets right down to the nitty gritty and takes care of business, Stacy Kirven is perfect. Helping re-obtain physical custody of my babies after a violation issue, Stacy had me in court, within weeks, righting all physical custody issues quickly and efficiently (she not only presented case at hand, but set the stage of solutions for future issues by being thorough and complete). I never would have dreamed an attorney could handle a situation so swiftly. Even from out of state, these procedures happened so quickly it was hard to believe. The entire situation was righted in entirety thanks to her in depth knowledge of procedure and keen eye of detail. I will always be thankful that destiny brought me to her firm. She treated me with dignity and gave me 100% of her time and effort. There was no time wasted with her, for as soon as I retained her services the ball was rolling as fast as I could make flight arrangements to be in court. Thank you for being excellent at your profession Stacy! My and my children's lives are forever changed because of your help.

Custody case
Couldn't be more happy with the services I received. I hired miss kirven for a custody matter and in just a few short months everything was settled in my favor. I would use stacy again anytime in the future if I were to need representation.

Adoption and Divorce
Stacy took complete care of my adoption case, which included her presentation of the case in front of a court judge. She presented the case calmly and assertively, showing that she was clearly prepared. Following the successful adoption, she also handled my divorce case involving children. With her expertise, we got the exact terms we first set and didn't have to compromise. She made the process quick and painless. I highly recommend her for her patience, professionalism, and legal knowledge.

Custody and Divorce Representation
Stacy Kirven handled an almost 18-month Child Custody and Divorce case for me, the father in this case. It was a difficult and hostile case, especially early on and she navigated the tricky intricacies with the utmost professionalism and poise. She was very creative in her problem solving and solutions to get things moving in the best direction possible for me as a client and more importantly the best interests of the child in this entire case. There were 2 hearings in front of the judge, first for a temporary custody agreement in which she brought the facts of the case to bear and showed inaccuracies in the defenses' arguments. There was another hearing a few months later in an order to show cause as the defendant failed to abide by the court order on the temporary custody agreement mentioned above. Again, she laid out the facts of the matter and brought a strong case before the judge. After this, there was a final hearing scheduled months in advance and during that time she strategically waited and advised the right settlement offers and timing to best serve me as the plaintiff. The timing and offers in the settlement produced a simple, shared custody agreement and acceptable divorce decree that served primarily to be in the best interest of the minor child as well. In addition to that, the terms of the divorce decree were very favorable to me as the plaintiff and it would not have been possible without her expertise and knowledge.

Highly recommend
Stacy was very professional and and seemed to really care about us and our case. She was very thorough, kept us informed of every step along the way. She did everything she could to save us money by having us do things that we could do ourselves, to help the case. She is very friendly and easy to work with. She is very passionate about what she does and it showed in the courtroom. I would recommend her to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Where is the attorney ever do not hire
I have hired this lady two times several years ago and this year she doesn’t fight for you. When you talk to her legal team, they will tell you anything and everything to get you to hire them and then once it comes down to going to court and everything else for you. I’ll tell you find a new attorney they did absolutely nothing for me. I have to fight my own court case because of them. Oh last, but not least her attitude is horrible she don’t care about you she never will. She only cares about your money out of your pocket. Do not hire her

Response from Stacy Kirven August 9, 2023
Hello Josh- I would urge you to communicate with TVC, as they are the company that you hired and you have not ever paid Kirven Law any money; TVC assigned us your case. I wish you the best of luck with all of your future legal matters.
