Joan has helped me with my child custody case for the past year and I couldn't imagine a better attorney for the job.
Such a case requires you to put nearly every personal thing you have about your life on the table and I couldn't ask for a more professional and trustworthy attorney to handle such a matter for me.
She responded quickly to every email I ever sent her and patiently answered all my questions, eased my concerns and kept me informed throughout every step in the process, a most important courtesy when going through such a difficult time.
She has worked hard and efficiently with me to ensure that I had the best possible shot in court and represented me very well when the day finally came.
As for the money, a good family law attorney is going to be relatively expensive... it is a field that requires loads of knowledge, experience and time. At least you get what you pay for with Joan, and without "surprises".

I have a very complex case spanning over many years of court. Most recently my case was transferred to a different county and I needed to find a new attorney. The attorney I had referred me to Ms. Bundy. As a single parent of four children navigating a complicated history of court filings, proceeding, evaluations etc... I needed someone knowledgable and sensitive to the nature of not just the case but the family behind it. Joan was always professional, timely and compassionate concerning my families wants, needs financial situation, and overall desired outcome. She was motivated to seek and receive the most desirable outcome for myself and my children. She was always available, attentive, and responsive to the needs of the case as well me the client. Ms. Bundy displayed a genuine concern for the outcome of my case and put heart and soul into every action. In the courtroom Joan was assertive, took action, and was effective. I would recommend her to anyone seeking an attorney who will fight for the clients best interests while also lessening confusion and uncertainties that coincide with any court proceeding. Thanks Joan for all your hard work!!

I endorse this lawyer. Joan possesses all the qualities you look for in a lawyer. She is creative, compassionate, intelligent, and honest. I had the pleasure of co-counseling a case with Joan, and I was very impressed by her dedication and wisdom. I would gladly recommend her to anyone looking to hire an attorney.
