I came to Mindy to handle my divorce. It was a very difficult time and she helped me nagivate the challenges (custody, hostile spouse, finances) while facilitating a desirable outcome. I put my trust in her and she delivered. Mindy got back to me very quickly about questions and followed up with me on things, and her office staff are exceptional in their manner and skill. She let me know ahead of time when she would be on vacation or in court and is just a really nice person. I would recommend her.

I retained Mindy because I had a complex case that needed to be resolved quickly. My goals were to minimize costs/fees, reach a resolution quickly, and make the best decisions given all the data/facts.
Although she was not the least expensive attorney, her fees were well worth her results!
Mindy did an excellent job of responding quickly, maintaining her professionalism, providing quality work and/or feedback, and providing good relevant advice. She was upfront in her billings and involved me in the process (i.e., I knew what was going on and understood the process!). She also minimized costs/fees when possible (i.e., didn't charge me for superfluous things and allowed me the opportunity to perform some actions).
Mindy was both flexible and respectful of my schedule, and was very patient when my case took unexpected turns (as many cases tend to do).
I wish more attorneys were like her.
