Expertise AND Compassion! Highly Recommend!
I am at the beginning stages of seeking a divorce and have been overwhelmed by fear and uncertainty about the process, the aftermath, ... everything! Someone referred me to Rochelle Binns and I can't thank that person enough. Ms. Binns is wonderful! I booked a free consultation and had a list of questions ready so as not to waste a moment of the time. Not only was Ms. Binns able to answer all of my questions, she anticipated issues that I hadn't thought of and gave me suggestions and answers as appropriate to help me move forward. And beyond her expertise, which was very reassuring, I was touched and comforted by her compassion towards me and what I was going through. She understands that getting a divorce is an emotional roller coaster for the people who come to her, and she expresses that understanding through her compassionate and caring manner. She couldn't have been more sensitive, thoughtful, or comforting. After our consultation call was over, I actually felt tremendous relief and had (and still have) the belief that things will work out in a much more straightforward fashion than I had imagined. Thank you, Ms. Binns!

THE BEST FAMILY-LAW ATTORNEY IN THE BUSINESS
Rochelle Binns was by far the best attorney I have ever worked with. I came to her for a post-judgment matter and it was completely different than when I had my attorney who did my divorce. Rochelle took the time to really understand my case and her client. She not only takes the time to explain the procedures to you, but lets you know what to expect and was always very clear. Rochelle made sure I understood everything that was going on throughout my case, she was not only my advocate but made it a point to make sure I knew she had my back. I have and will recommend her to anyone who needs a family law attorney.

Extraordinary Attorney
From start to finish, Rochelle demonstrated an exceptional level of professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail. She was incredibly responsive to my questions and concerns, always taking the time to explain legal procedures and concepts. What really stood out to me about Rochelle was that she made me feel like my case was a priority. Her expertise and experience were evident throughout the entire process. I also appreciated how Rochelle kept me informed through regular updates. I highly recommend Rochelle because she is an outstanding attorney that truly cares about her clients and goes above and beyond to deliver exceptional results. Thank you, Rochelle, for your hard work and dedication!

"Your concerns are my concerns."
As an activist, I have spoken to countless attorneys on behalf of others. When I found myself in personal need of legal counsel, I can say that Attorney Binns was refreshing to say the least. Not only is she approachable, but she is a fantastic listener; I really felt heard by her. She takes her time and made a point to tell me that "your concerns are my concerns". If you are looking for a fantastic attorney, look no further than Rochelle Binns.

The Best Family LAW Attorney!!!
Rochelle Binns is hands down THE BEST attorney I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She went above and beyond to help me in my most difficult situation. I would and will recommend her to any and everyone because she is amazing. I not only love her as my attorney but I also consider her a friend. She is so professional, smart and all around great!!! Anything I needed help with she did it ! Anything I didn't understand , she explained it! It also helped that we were like minded because most of the suggestions that were essiantially "up to me" I gave her full lead on because she knew best and pretty much knew the answer I was going to tell her anyways. just another reason I love her. Thank you so much for all your help!! I love you as a friend because you actually care!!!

Rochelle is WONDERFUL
Rochelle was the best thing to happen to me in this extremely long and stressful divorce. I was able to explain my feelings and concerns, my view on matters and worries, all in my woman way of conversing. She understood what I was expressing and turned them into legal terms with ease. She made me feel reassured, less stress and more confident. She was very patient with me and never made me feel pressured. Rochelle is very knowledgeable and current in the laws. I felt at ease putting my case/life in her hands. Huge Thanks to Rochelle…. You’re awesome!!

An attorney who really cares
Rochelle is one of the best attorneys I’ve ever met. I’m a domestic violence survivor. My abuse did not end when I left my marriage. I had experienced legal abuse. I was blessed to have Rochelle moved to my case. She is a fighter and go getter. She is super professional and gets the job done. The opposing counsel was a nightmare with constantly getting extensions and continuances. Rochelle was through and fought harder than any attorney I had on my team. I felt like someone was standing up for me and fighting for my freedom. If you want a really good attorney who cares about her clients and goes the extra mile she is your girl. I will recommend her to anyone who asks.

Wonderful personal touch
I really am grateful to have found Rochelle. I never felt pressured, but well supported. She was kind. Responded the same day if I didn’t reach out too late. Pricing was great. Thank you for being there during a trying time. And going the extra mile when I needed some things that weren’t exactly in the plan for us! You still came through. Thanks.

5 Stars! Paternity Case

An strong advocate with trustworthy empathy
I came from a domestic violence separation and had personal statements and emotional confessions. From our initial consult I felt like Rochelle was hearing me and trying to look forward in how to defend me and protect me - without pushing me or even judging me. Throughout the divorce process she has been friendly and even funny, protective and active, and thoughtfully professional. I very strongly recommend her. And I’m grateful to have felt her kindness during this awful process.

She gets the job done!
I consulted with Rochelle regarding a potential custody matter a few years back, and she was able to talk me through the pre litigation process. Thanks to Rochelle's advice, we were able to keep this matter out of court and handle this amicably. Rochelle is very honest, direct and to the point, so we were never left guessing about her views on the matter. I would absolutely use Rochelle's services in the future.

Mr.
Rochelle represented us in a child custody matter in which we had not seen the two children in over a year and a half!! Rochelle tried to negotiate an agreement with the plaintiff and his attorney. They were not at all agreeable to any compromise Rochelle suggested. Rochelle warned them that if we did not come to a compromise, the judge would have to make the rulings and that his ruling would probably favor our requests and suggestions. We advised Rochelle that we were tired of trying to reach a compromise and to proceed before the judge. The judge granted all of our requests. We thank God that we were represented by Rochelle and we were finally reunited with the kids the very next day!! If you need an attorney that is a fighter - a bulldog —We would recommend Rochelle to represent you.
