The Absolute Best!!!!
I do not know how I would have gotten through my divorce if I had not had Adrienne as my legal counsel. From our very first interaction she was so honest which I appreciated and found refreshing. Adrienne not only knows the law, she practices always keeping the law in the forefront of any conversation or interaction, which was nice for me because it made things simple regarding what could be negotiated and what was simply the law. She worked hard with opposing counsel to ensure the process continued to move forward as she recognized that I could not move forward in life until my divorce was finalized. Adrienne is extremely organized and has an uncanny attention to detail. I trust her implicitly and although I do not plan on getting married or divorced again, if I did find myself in that situation, I would not want any other counsel except Adrienne. Adrienne is a fierce advocate for her clients and she really took the time to get to know me as a person, my sense of humor and values as well as my triggers (I hate that word) or issues where I could easily become emotional. Adrienne is very honest and will give it to you straight so you always know where you stand. She kept me on track, moving forward and managed my emotions with grace and compassion. She gave me reassurance when needed, always keeping the law in the forefront of any decision or negotiation. There were times I thought my head was going to explode, and she was exceptional at bringing me back to the task at hand in order to reach the finish line with fair and equitable resolution for all involved. Divorce is not for me and like many others I didn’t get married to get divorced, but Adrienne made it not only bearable but at times enjoyable. I should clarify, the divorce itself was not pleasant but working with her was an absolutely enjoyable experience and made one of the worst times in my life a little more bearable. We made it through as a team, with her leading the way from start to finish, and I will forever be grateful for her service and the due diligence she gave not only to my case but to me as a person.

Absolute best
I was referred to Adrienne by my sister. Adrienne was very clear on the direction we were going, what needed to be done, and gave helpful advice. I will never regret the day I called her.

Adrienne helped me avoid court. Honest attorney
I had a nasty breakup, and my ex filed a restraining order to be vindictive. Adrienne was able to get a civil no contact order signed by both of us to avoid court. She was very helpful and knowledgeable. Saved me a lot of grief, and a lot of money. Highly recommend.

Adrienne was my rock through my divorce
I hired Adrienne when I made the difficult decision to leave my husband. When I first met Adrienne, she really took the time to get to know my situation/background and figure out what was important to me. I was hesitant about getting a lawyer at first because my (ex)husband and I agreed that this would be amicable process. I can’t express how thankful I was to have Adrienne in my corner as the process went on and became more-messy than I would have ever expected. Adrienne was extremely professional, while still relatable, and presented each option throughout the divorce process in a straightforward and easy to understand way. She took the time to explain what each step meant, translate legal jargon, and remind me of my original goals and values. When things became more emotional and challenging she was a rock for me and fought for what was important to me. Based on my unique situation, I thought the divorce process would be simple. I quickly learned how much people can change. Without Adrienne, I don’t know how I would have gotten through it. I would highly recommend her to anyone having to go through this difficult process.

She's efficient, straight forward and honest.
I contacted Adrienne to represent me in a limited capacity; If not for her expertise and swift representation, I would have not been successful in having jurisdiction changed. Thank you Adrienne for your assistance!

Thorough, conscientious, and thoughtful
Adrienne is a phenomenal attorney who truly has the best interests of her clients and their families in mind. She is highly communicative through every step of the legal process, and very open to any questions that may arise for a client. She cares deeply about ensuring the end result is generated justly and fairly, and will not unnecessarily draw things out or cure corners for her own benefit. There was no time during the six months in which I worked with Adrienne that I had doubts about her methods. I was very lucky to be referred to her, and I'm hopeful your message will help others take her counsel.

Great Representation
I would recommend Adrienne for anyone having to go through Family Court. I was in a situation that had to do with custody of my child, and Adrienne showed empathy and helped chart a path to resolution. I feel like she gave me honest feedback at all junctures during the process, even if it wasn't what I wanted to hear. She forced me to see every issue from both sides when having to decide how to proceed. Creating this level of buy in allowed me to trust her completely and value her legal opinion at times when difficult decisions needed to be made. Adrienne was very responsive to all my questions, whether by phone or email and took the time to explain the 'why' behind her reasoning. I never had the sense that she was rushing me or wouldn't answer any question I had. She made me feel like I was her only client and I simply cannot say enough good things about her. With her guidance, I ended up in a better position than when I first met her for a consult. Because of this, my relationship with my child has never been better.

Excellent Family/Divorce/ Lawyer
In light of the fact I was going through a tough time, Ms. Garcia made the process extremely easy for me. She took the time to explain the process and always had excellent communication. I highly recommend Ms. Garcia to help with any matters of family law.

Above & Beyond
When faced with a complicated child custody issue, Ms. Garcia took the case and really was able to cover the bases and give excellent advise on how to deal with situations as they arose. Ms. Garcia was in touch with what was needed, took care of those needs, and kept us informed every step along the way. She will be sought after if we should need services she is able to provide in the future. I highly recommend Ms. Garcia for her competence, candor, and compassion at uncommon levels.
