She helped me when I stood alone.
My whole reason for needing a lawyer is because of a divorce with kids. No one gave me a hand book and said here .. this is the process. So I set out looking for help and I got help. Carey was there to answer many questions and was there through it all. Carey is ready to fight. She's about the law and doing what she needs too. I would recommend her!

Extremely happy with attorney Haydon
Attorney Haydon is extremely knowledgeable, Honest, friendly, and works hard to get the outcome you are looking for. She is not timid in the courtroom and has no problem speaking out on your behalf she is always prepared when arriving at court. Attorney Haydon treats your case as if it were her case. If I had to do it again I would not hesitate to hire attorney Hayden as a matter of fact I wouldn’t even think about hiring anyone else. I would definitely recommend attorney.

She listens
I don't even know the results yet, of my case. What I will tell you, is that I have spent thousands of dollars over the course of five years on attorneys that took my money and didn't care. Out of desperation and love of the children, I found her firm. She listened to me and over the course of days was able to clearly see what my case was. She cares and not only is she ethical she plays by the book. A lot of people fight dirty. To be able to win a case and still keep your integrity in tact, is important. Two thumbs up for Carey.
