Advice and Feedback
I appreciate Pamela's responsiveness and direction. Her ability to message directly through social accounts is far more convenient than having to call a number nobody answers, or calls that take forever to get to the point. In a matter of minutes, my questions were answered that I've been spending all week trying to get clear about obtaining records. I'm also impressed about what she points out on social media like little details in case that could make a difference.

Compassionate
I contacted Pamela to help my son with his custody agreement two years ago. She was so kind throughout helping him to figure out not only what he needed but what was reasonable to ask for. She was down to earth and non-judgmental. She has a gift.

Paralegal Student Looking for Help
I am a student who needed help with a homework assignment. And, even though this was most likely not the correct site for me to ask questions about the daily practices of a law firm Pamela took the time out of her day to explain in detail how everything works. She spoke a great deal about how clients needs come first and how she meets them from the beginning and gets really good knowledge about their cases so that she is not unprepared. From a student prospective I really admire a person who is an attorney and is really busy that will help someone with what they can. Thank you so much for your help today. It is greatly appreciated.

Nicest Attorney Ever
Pamela is the nicest attorney ever. She listen without judging me or my past. She want to discuss what was best for me and for my kids. She explains things. She is real nice.

Someone You Can Trust
Pamela reviewed a trust provided to me by a family member. Pamela provided an outline of the terms and explained it. Pamela is someone very detailed and professional. Someone you can trust to do the best work.

Help from the heart.
Pamela Ross-Lumsden of All for the Family Legal Clinic Inc has been wonderful to work with. She not only produced the highest of quality work, but her response time was phenomenal. She was sensitive to my needs and seemed to want to help with a genuine heart. I would definitely recommend working with this agency.
