I had hired another Attorney that offered a discount through my employer. this was a huge mistake. I spent a lot of time and money and realized that i was not being represented fairly.
I looked online and found several great reviews regarding Arelis. I called and received a free consultation. From my initial consultation with Arelis I knew I had made the right decision. I left the office feeling confident that I was being represented by a professional. Arelis was very organized, well informed and explained every detail about my case. She was also straight and to the point. I e-mailed a list of questions and she would respond immediately to all of my concerns. She represented me beyond my expectations. My only regret was that I didn’t hire Arelis from the beginning.
At the Mandatory Settlement Conference we were able to agree on everything. Arelis worked extremely hard to make this happen. She even made sure that we finalized the divorce the same day. I'm confident that if Arelis had not represented me, my divorce case would have dragged on. This would have cost me time and money which i did not have. I left the courthouse with a smile on my face knowing that I was represented very well. I can begin a new chapter in my life. I am very thankful for having found such an amazing attorney. If i could give 10 stars i would. If you want your divorce case done right the first time i recommend Arelis Hughes.

I will always turn to Arelis for my family law matters.
My ex prevented my children from flying to my home overseas to see me during my custody periods. Arelis quickly and efficiently obtained court orders that enabled my children to fly to see me and prevented my ex from further interfering with my custody. Thereafter, Arelis expertly represented me in complex modification litigation with my ex and brought those proceedings to a conclusion as expediently and favorably as was possible.
In representing me, Arelis consistently displayed a remarkable ability to take complicated facts and present them effectively and simply to an overworked court that could not take the time to evaluate or grant the relief that I sought. This is a rare ability that few attorneys have. Arelis also has a deep and highly nuanced knowledge of substantive family law that greatly helped me.
I am an attorney. I also have a lot of experience using family law attorneys, as my divorce lasted 5+ years and I had to use 5 different attorneys during this difficult process. Arelis consistently gave me solid, pragmatic advice and was the most effective litigator with whom I worked.

I went thru an extremely difficult, lengthy and nasty divorce but I will always feel grateful to have retained Arelis as my attorney. I deeply respect her professionalism and I trust her expertise tremendously. I strongly recommend Arelis for any issues involving family law. She is rare beyond rare in her aptitude and empathy. A special and remarkable attribute in this profession.
Arelis is personable and has integrity. She is honest and straight-forward. She tells you exactly what to expect and won't promise anything unreasonable. Arelis is very genuine, cares about your case, and fights for your rights and the best interest of the family. Every time we had a court appearance, she was always well-prepared, efficient and articulate.
Arelis is very knowledgeable and has a passion for what she does. But one thing that sets her apart is the human factor, at the end we are people with emotions and financial difficulties. By being ethical and compassionate she understands the emotional turmoil you may be going through. If you are in the tough situation of having to get divorced, Arelis will be a great advocate. She is just an amazing all around person!
