Referral
I would highly recommend Ms. Gemma-Rose Poland Soon from Greg Ryan & Associates to anyone who is going through a divorce and/or child custody issues. Going through a divorce with a child is already one of the hardest things I had to go through especially when things are not amicable. When I was going though my divorce (which took almost a year and a half) I was with another attorney at a another law firm. I felt ok about the outcome of my divorce but I also felt that my previous attorney could have fought harder with the issues that I was facing. Last year, almost 6 years after my divorce was finalized I was served with papers from my ex-husband taking me back to court. It was a VERY stressful situation and the emotions and uncertainty from before came back instantly. As soon as I received the papers my first thought was that I needed to call the attorney who previously represented me. I mean I didn't know any better. I just knew that I really didn't want to go back to the attorney who represented me before. I wanted someone who would be strong but kind and someone who would stick up for me and my daughter and would not back down from the issues I knew was coming my way. I was referred to Gemma by a friend who knew my situation and felt like Gemma would be a good fit for me. After our first meeting I knew that Gemma was the person I needed!! What was supposed to maybe take a few months to resolve turned into almost 8 months in and out of court. I truly cannot thank Gemma enough for ALL that she has done for me. She was with me through everything!! My tears, fears and frustrations. She listened to me and what I wanted. She guided me through all that I had to do and had A LOT of patience with. With every decision I had to make I knew that I could fully trust Gemma. I valued her knowledge and her experience. She didn't treat like I was just a client paying her. She cared about my daughter and my future. I’m unsure if I will ever need to go back to court but at least my first thought won’t have to be “who do I call”. It is with the utmost confidence that I will call Ms. Gemma-Rose Poland Soon at Greg Ryan & Associates.

Excellent - Consummate Professional
Gemma Rose-Poland is a consummate professional and has been advocating on my behalf over the past few year. Despite the delays in the case and long hours, she continued to communicate to me via email and phone. If there is any recommendation for a family law attorney, I wouldn't suggest Gemma. Thanks.

Outstanding attorney
Gemma did outstanding job with my divorce case. She aided me with Pre-decree relief and my divorce as well. Both were handles in timely and efficient manner. I was able to keep full physical and legal custody of my twin girls. I couldn’t have found a better attorney!
