I met with Alison regarding my divorce. She was very knowledgable and was able to answer every question fully and in a way that was easy to understand. She was very professional, curious and respectful. She had papers that I needed complete fast and most importantly correctly. She is very efficient and able to hand what ever needs you have and not waste any time. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a honest, knowledgeable and professional attorney.

Alison did a very nice job representing me and had faith in many of the decisions that I made as well as gave me great counsel where I needed help. Alison is very responsive and seemed to have a lot of passion around her work.

Alison is an excellent family lawyer; she is knowledgeable, attentive, sensitive, patient, and responsive to her clients' needs; I hired Alison in the summer of 2011, to help me in my custody battle for my 3 year old son; I was previously using an attorney who proved to be ineffective in dealing with my ex-wife's counsel and disinterested in my case; my ex-wife had taken our son from the family home back in late 2009, when my divorce proceedings began; since late 2009, my ex-wife was refusing to work towards a 50/50 time share with me for our son, despite repeated efforts to communicate with her through friends, family members, my attorney, and co-parenting counselors. With Alison's help and guidance, I got a 50/50 time share for my son and established a parenting plan with my ex-wife, just seven months later in the early Spring of 2012.
Since then, I've used Alison's services to help me continue to protect my rights as a parent against my ex-wife, who has persistently battled me on parenting issues like schooling, extracurricular activities, vacation times, and doctor's visits. Alison has been a source of inspiration for me and a constant reminder that so long as I continue to do what is best for my son and stay within the boundaries of my parenting plan, that my ex-wife cannot legally alter my custody with our son.
I would highly recommend Alison to anyone seeking a family law attorney on any matter concerning family law.
