Attorney Graves is a family law advocate that is not only committed to getting our client's lives back on track, but doing so in a way that is both efficient and affordable. She understands that situations such as divorce are outside the realm of your control. You need someone who will compassionately guide you through the legal process. That is exactly what Attorney Graves is devoted to doing.

Personally working with each client, she makes sure that no one is laid to the wayside as just another case number. She keeps you updated on new developments and helps you understand every aspect of the process before making any decisions. Attorney Graves is most interested in protecting your rights, as well as the rights of your children. She is highly invested in each case the firm takes on, always answering calls and emails within 24 hours. She is also supported by a reliable legal assistant, Elizabeth Deniz, who works closely with Attorney Graves and her clients to provide the best possible legal services.

You should hire this firm - Demetria and Jill are great
Going through a divorce is hard and it is great to know that you have a team representing you that is highly experienced as well as knowledgeable. Jill is on point with sending in the documents and making sure you are prepared. Demetria is beyond a great attorney, she sticks to the facts, is efficient and thorough. I was nervous about the retainer but when you get in the trenches, you are like "what retainer?" You are super happy that Jill and Demetria are on your side representing you. They not only make sure you are well equipped and prepared, they keep your spirits up too. They are honest, thorough, thoughtful and most of all, prepared. This is not their first rodeo and they know how to manage the process. I am elated that I hired them. The reason that I am writing this review is because I almost did not hire them because of one bad review. I thought I would help someone else not make that mistake. These guys get the job done and I am not the easiest client or the easiest case. But I am happy they are by my side and on my team. John D. Pasadena, CA

Demetria was great,
Demetria and her staff worked on my dissolution case diligently. The other party made it extremely difficult and lengthy but Demetria hung in there with me the entire time - almost 3 years. In the end it resolved just as we had planned during our first meetings. She (or her staff) always responds quickly, was in court on time, and was very pleasant to work with. She has great knowledge of the law and all of her advise turned out to be accurate. Her billing is very fair and accurate. I give Demetria my highest recommendation.
