Thoughtful Review
My situation (as many, I presume) was not cookie-cutter. Julia asked thoughtful questions and offered information on legal issues. Most of the advice I took and when I opted for my own counsel, I feel that I was able to make a more informed decision re: consequences and possible outcomes.
