My ex and I agreed to use Annette Burns as a parenting coordinator in our family court case, so this review is limited to that role. In a nutshell, she was terrible! I found her judgment, dedication and thoroughness before making decisions to be lacking. The best testament I can give to the quality of her work is the fact that out of the four total recommendations she submitted in our case, THREE of them were overturned by the judge. Buyer beware: The rules in AZ have changed that give parenting coordinators the power to make decisions on behalf of your case without the ability to appeal to a judge. Having a judge that gave our case the appropriate attention and deliberation it deserved was the only saving grace for our family.

Annette appeared welcoming and kind at first meetings; however, as time went on it became more and more apparent that she had little interest in my case and more interest in making sure I paid my invoice on time. She did not return emails or phone calls in a timely manor unless it was related to billing. She rarely assisted me in my case but continued to charge me large amounts. I would definitely use caution when using Annette and recommend looking elsewhere.

I would recommend her. I believe she knows her stuff - she's been doing this for awhile and was able to help me and my ex-husband think outside the box for solutions.
