The Best Family Attorney in town!
Dede is genuinely an amazing person as well as attorney. She has an awesome personality and truly makes you feel comfortable. She is extremely knowledgeable and is always quick on her toes. She always knew the right things to say and is phenomenal in court. We couldn't have had a better attorney defending us. She was able to do more for us than we had hoped for when starting the journey. She has also worked with us in all ways possible. We are very thankful that she found us, and was willing to help us. More than anything we are thankful for the friend she has been to us, and not made us feel like we were just another set of clients, and more like family. You will be pleased with her work. Thank you Dede for all you have done for our family. You are a blessing!

I wouldn't have chosen anyone else
Going to Dede was hands-down the best choice I've ever made. She was very professional yet kind and caring at the same time. There were a couple hiccups during my processing, but she made sure to handle them immediately and kept me informed the entire time. Also, she made me feel like I was her only client...I wasn't just a number to her. Highly recommended!

I would strongly recommend Dede Agrava
Dede is very professional. She guided us all the way. When we had questions, she answered them all. She responded to phone and emails very quickly. She was very reassuring, during this very difficult time. I highly recommend her.

Reasonable fee, organized, punctual, up front and very patient.
I finally faced the fact that I should hire an attorney, but I dreaded the search for one I would like and one that would not make me feel like a schmuck for having a financial meltdown. Dede Agrava turned out to be the attorney I needed. She agreed to take my case. She is so organized, answers e-mails, phone calls, and does what she says she is going to do! She fully prepared me for the legal process of chapter 7 and was with me every step of the way. I highly recommend her.

An answer to my Prayers
Divorce and lost wages left me with a large debt. Unable to afford food and staples for family while trying to pay minimum amounts on debt. Relied on family and church to make it to work and eat. With Dede Agrava's help I could see a light at the end of a very dark tunnel. Such a weight was lifted off me and I could breath again. Great Lawyer, in court she was right there with me and answered any and all questions I had. Other lawyers in the room were seated away from their clients or late in showing up. I would recommend Dede Agrava to anyone in my position.
