I was being sued for the first time ever and had met with one other attny, and felt very uncomfortable with him. So I was so glad when I found Ms. Smith. She was just the right fit for my case and didn't try to do anything more than was needed. I would trust her with any future case and I am just now about to (unfortunately for me) need her services again. But I truly would be lost without her representation. I am OK knowing that what ever happens she is on my side and I really do have great representation. Both of my cases are civil, where I would have no chance on my own going up against big corporate establishments. Thanks again Andrea for being there to be on my side and helping me through some of the most troubled times I have had. You made them easier and I couldn't have made it without you.

My husband and I worked with Andrea and her law office to avoid garnishment of wages over a Debt Collection Judgement that was made over 7 1/2 years ago. Our current residence is in Nevada. Because this judgement was made in California, we needed to seek an attorney from California to work with our attorney in Nevada. Because of the nature of our case, and it being very time sensitive, there were many lawyers who would NOT take on the responsibility though we had solid proof that this was clearly NOT our debt. Andrea and her law office agreed to take on the case with no hesitation at all. They were clearly on our side and understood our frustration and mixed emotions having to deal with such a deceitful debt collector. For the sake of my family, she knew we needed help. Throughout the entire ordeal, we were assured that they would fight for us, even if there was a chance we would loose. She constantly kept us updated and hid nothing from us. First court hearing....we won! I can't express enough how thankful I am to have found Andrea. I thank you Andrea and Ryan for all the hard work, dedication, professionalism and also having a good sense of humor when needed. I know it's still not over but you conquered the most difficult battle because you believed us and we believe in you. I'm looking forward to this being all over and all of us ending this with a toast!

I highly recommend this attorney. She is an exceptionally professional , knowledgeable, responsive and above all very compassionate. During a time of financial hardship and fear of losing our home, she rescued me and my children from aggressive debt collectors. We thank you Andrea for everything!!! You are a blessing.
