Denise took over and went to work immediately to clean up my case, after two other attorneys screwed up and took one year of my life. She was always concerned about my children and my needs. Without asking, she was very involved in understanding my children's special needs and always advised what was best for us. My case was incredibly difficult. Due to her attention to detail and strong research capability, she was successful in clearly demonstrating to the court, my ex's history to deceive the truth and hide his income to his first family for over 4 years. The court ruled twice in my favor (RFO and Attorney Fees), citing the court's inability to find him credible in any terms. By bringing in a respected vocational expert, we were able to present my ex's ability to obtain work (if he tried) and what would be his salary, even though he was stating constant unemployment and hardship in finding work.
I cannot be more grateful for knowing Denise and the privilege of having her as my attorney. She is not only the best Family Law Attorney, but will always be considered a good friend and advocate to me and my children.

I am a law-enforcement professional who after 22 years of marriage decided the best option was divorce. Denise came to me HIGHLY recommended by a co-worker. Denise was receptive to all of my needs and concerns. She was readily available and to my surprise, the entire process was seamless.
Divorce is not an option for everyone. But, if you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, I now, along with my co-worker, HIGHLY recommend Denise.

Denise is nothing short of fantastic. She is dedicated to her clients and their interest. Denise is a valuable asset to any person struggling with a family law issue. I endorse Denise and would have zero hesitation recommending her service to someone.
