Highly recommended! Debra Opri is excellent at any stage in your process .. If you hire her first you have no worries .. Hiring her as your attorney is like having a all time champion in your ring! Ms. Opri can step in anytime and correct or revise a broken case as well and turn it around to your advantage ..or like in my case she can makes miracles happen!

In the beginning of 2014 I married a very high profile athlete. I left my home town of Texas and came to live in my new house in LA. Well in a short period of time things turned for the worse , and I packed it up and headed back to Texas . On my journey home I was frightened to death , what was I going to do about the media , who would I get for an attorney . I knew I needed a tough no nonsense lawyer that could handle what ever big guns he brought to the table . Well I'm a trial TV buff and remembered seeing Mrs. Opri on several of the TV stations giving commentary on different legal issues and remembered among other things she practices family law . So I shot her and email just telling her who I was and what my mess was . I never expected to hear back from her , but the same day I got an email back saying this is my cell please call. I did and to my delight she took my case. When she jumped on board she went straight into action. I was thrilled to have her on my side knowing she had my back fully. Here I was just a 9 to 5 working woman , not a celebrity, and she was willing to fight for me just the same . At the same time allowing me to have my own input on things . Not only was I a client , But I became a friend . There was NEVER a time I could not reach her by email, phone or txt. If she was in trial her wonderful legal assistant would call and try to resolve what ever I thought was the crisis at the moment . Mrs. Opri called me many times during court recesses to discuss things with me . She grew to know me and knew exactly what I needed and wanted out of my divorce . I walked away a very satisfied client . Even to this day she calls or texts to check on me just to see how I'm doing . We created a bond forever . I'm truly thankful for Mrs. Opri. I would absolutely use her again, and definitely recommend her to anyone who wants a fighter in their corner!

I'm LH, founder and director of an international non-profit wellness business. I had a close family member who became very unruly and non-cooperative in my personal and business life. This family member, who worked within the company, believed he should have had control over not only the business but me as well. Over time, as things escalated, it became necessary to contact an attorney. I was referred to Debra Opri who turned out to be a God send!
She handled herself in a very professional way with integrity, care and sincerity. She always told me the truth of the matter even if it wasn't comfortable to hear. She handled my case and the family member with a type of dignity and legal knowledge that caused him to not only back away from his threatening position but to give it up completely, allowing me to live and conduct my business more freely.
I cannot thank Ms. Opri enough for the great way she handled my case. Her fees were reasonable and she was always available to me. I have subsequently referred her to others and they are as pleased with her as I am. What makes Debra Opri stand out from other attorney's is that she knows her job, she does her job and we, her clients, know she always has our backs.
