My divorce wasnt a mutual one, so I had to hire an attorney post my ex had already looked around the part of town I live in. It was a blessing in disguise as I traveled farther away to find Deshon. I knew she would be perfect for me in this hard time in life in just one meeting. It wasnt only for her compassion but her advise. She didnt tell me what I wanted to hear but what I should hear.
Its always expensive to go through attorneys but if you employ one who is smart you get most out of your money. Her entire team is smart and paid a lot of attention to detail. It sometimes is hard to find time with Deshon but you will always get the right answer. I truly appreciated working with her entire team Staci, Sara, Natalie, Jessica, Lisa etc.
It took over an year to get the final judgement and all settlement with custody etc. and I have no complaints. I was really impressed with Deshon at the hearing, she was against another 10 rated lawyer in the town and the opponent was totally out of her element and Deshon was smart, poised and eloquent in her part of defense. I am glad i had her on my side. Thanks!

Deshon, Jennifer and the entire staff were simply the best choice for my divorce proceedings. They were very professional but extremely personable for the needs of my case, my two boys, and myself. They truly care about their clients, they work extremely hard for you, and they are by your side personally through the entire process. Their friendly compassionate style is a breath of fresh air through any divorce, and no divorce is easy.

DeShon Pullen represented me in a Divorce Case. She has excellent interpersonal skills and I was able to build rapport and trust with her right away. In addition, she has effective communication skills with everyone she works with. I saw this over and over again throughout the months when working with the Judge, the Mediator, Opposing Counsel, and her Staff.
She understood my goals and set the course on how to obtain them. She had perseverance in my case when I felt like “throwing in the towel”. She came prepared to my Settlement Conference. She had a suitcase of documentation and even the Mediator had mentioned that he could tell she had put a lot of work into my case. The Settlement Conference was a long 6 hour ordeal and when Opposing Counsel tried to tear me down, DeShon was quick to come back with a compelling argument and in a logical manner. If was hard for me to “think” during this conference because I was so stressed and emotionally spent. Deshon was steadfast. She was thorough and paid attention to detail to the bitter end. After everything was settled, the Mediator typed up the Settlement. Deshon reviewed it, and then she changed one of the items. I did not understand it at the time, but she had the foresight to see that if that item was not changed it could negatively impact me in the future. She said to me, “I want to make sure that you are going to be okay”. It has only been a few months since the Divorce was final and today I see clearly how important it was that she changed that one item.
We were almost done and then, my former spouse tried to change an item after we had already settled. It was something that was important to me. DeShon and her assistant, Staci LeSueur helped me to work through this with positive results, and we still met the deadline date of filing the Divorce Decree. There were 2 other last minute revisions that occurred in my favor and I still wonder, how did they do this? Deshon Pullen, Jennifer Raczkowski and Staci LeSueur…This is Amazing Team!
DeShon Pullen is the Attorney that you want in your corner….Intellect, Integrity, Tenacity, and Heartfelt.

DeShon and Team Pullen, surpassed my expectations! After 30 years of marriage, with complicated financials- DeShon effectively mediated a winning resolution. With my trial date, quickly approaching, she effectively and professionally strategized with my brilliant forensic accountant- David Cantor (Epps Forensics) to achieve financial justice, for me. DeShon is an excellent attorney! I sincerely recommend DeShon's ethical and competent representation...

Wonderful Woman in every respect of the word, and example as both a professional and a woman. Very thoughtful honest and intelligent. Deshon is both a mother and an excellent lawyer who knows the legal world. Highly recommended.

It is not my custom to write endorsements, but was so overwhelmed by the good service I received, that I just had to this time. When you need an attorney, you expect to pay, but you hope to get your moneys worth. I felt that I got every bit of mine, and then some. DeShon and her staff made me feel as if my case was the main focus of their attention, although I'm sure they were working with several others. I appreciated her knowledge, expertise and compassion with which she handled my case from the first day to the last. Honestly, I hope I will never have to call on her services again, but it sure is nice to know she's there if I need her.

Deshon and her team were amazing during the divorce and continue to be extremely helpful. She was my 3rd attorney and the only one that recommended mediation to reduce long term cost. The others were prepping for trial......at my expense. I will use her for my next divorce. HAHA.

I'm a lawyer, but I am not a "family lawyer." I needed help.
I looked carefully and was pleased to find DeShon. She is simply one of the best family lawyers around. She's smart, thorough and efficient. She gets to the heart of the matter quickly and is bolstered by her experience and professional judgment.
Honestly, if you need someone in this area, DeShon should be your first and last call.

I had a terrible experience recently with DeShon Pullen. During the most stressful period of my life, I went in for a free consultation regarding a divorce. I received incorrect advice that I had only 20 days to respond to my divorce papers which was false. I was told by another firm, Cavanagh that there was no clock ticking because they had only been filed and not legally served. I felt pressured to sign a contract and paid the $2500 retainer fee. While I was signing the contract I mentioned that maybe I should be reading this and my attorney, Jennifer stated, "we will give you copies to take home and read". My own attorney did not advise me to read this before I signed even though I expressed my concerns. I called 24 hours later and said I had acted too hastely and wanted more time to think it over. My lawyer stated she had drafted a letter to my husband and did I want to review it, at least, by email. She did not say she would charge me for this which she did. The letter had several misspellings which looked very unprofessional. So I said I did not wish to continue and she offered me a less expensive counsel where she would review paperwork but not accompany me to court. Jennifer never once let me out of the contract on the spot and instead said Jessica would call me to discuss my options. After several phone calls to Jessica who was always out or unavailable and many messages left, Jessica never ever returned my calls. After almost 2 weeks I called and by chance Jessica answered the phone and said she was busy moving and would get back to me. A day or so later I received an email stating it would take 60 days to resolve getting my fees together to make the appropriate credit to my $2500 retainer fee. After an email to DeShon I received a bill for over $500 (1/5 of my retainer fee) for basically draftings a letter with misspellings. I feel like I've been put through the ringer by a law firm who was suppose to represent me in a fair manner. I would gladly pay a reasonable fee but this is totally unfair. Please beware of DeShon Pullen Law Firm. They treated me without respect and gave me more stress in an already vulunerable stage of my life. They have been unresponsive to my pleas to get this resolved in a reasonable and fair manner. I regret ever having walked through their doors.
