Name change
I met Toby Adams while she was still in Law school, and working as legal assistant. She was excellent back then, and I'm sure she's even better now. Toby assisted me with the court paperwork needed for changing my name legally. She filled out and filed all needed documents with the court. I was informed that I might need to appear before a judge but her work was so spotless that the court approved my petition without my needing to appear. I'm am excited to hear that she has Graduated with her law degree and plan to hire her for any legal issues that may arise.
