After a long and drawn out divorce process and a proposed settlement that was unsatisfactory, I searched for a more aggressive attorney. I changed attorneys to Eileen Avila. I was able to set up an appointment quickly and she was very professional yet I immediately felt comfortable. Communication was excellent. I was able to express my issues. She asked all the relevant questions and offered immediate insight. Eileen especially showed genuine concern for the well-being of my children. My case had special circumstances and her experience and knowledge were invaluable. She kept me well informed throughout the process via phone, email and in person. In a relatively short amount of time, my dissolution was finalized and the final judgment exceeded my expectations, thanks to Eileen. I would highly recommend Eileen Avila for any matter in family law.

Eileen Avila has been a great help to me this year. So far, she helped me win a trial, beating my ex-wife’s request for a permanent domestic violence CLETS restraining order against me; helped me to regain possession of my residence; and successfully defeated a request for order by my ex-wife to set aside the divorce judgment. Eileen is always available when I need her, including cell phone access. She has been aggressive and assertive when needed, but understands that my family often needs kindness and understanding. I give her the highest recommendation.
