Chelsea represented my son during a protracted custody battle. She was responsive to his needs and helped resolve some difficult issues. I would highly recommend her to others who need such representation.

I retained Chelsea after my ex husband sued me for custody of my children. Chelsea was very professional when handling my case, and was very forthcoming and honest with me on her opinion of the outcome as well as the laws that effected my case. Whether she realized it or not, this was very reassuring and gave me confidence as we ended up going to trial (And WON!) I would highly recommend her and if the need arises I will seek her as my legal counsel again.

After speaking with a few attorneys to take on my divorce case, I chose Chelsea because I felt she did not just tell me what I wanted to hear (others did) and I trusted that she was setting realistic expectations concerning the outcome of my divorce. I was not disappointed. She handled the entire process professionally and continually made efforts to work with the other party's attorney to come up with a quick, fair settlement. Unfortunately, the other party's attorney had a more contentious approach and seemingly delayed the end of the divorce as long as possible to the benefit of his client. Through this process, Chelsea did an amazing job of answering my questions, keeping me informed, and calming my anxiety.
In my case, the expectations that Chelsea set in the first meetings with her were very close to the actual outcome. It would have been nice to have worked with counsel on the opposing side that was as experienced and knowledgeable as her, that was setting the same realistic expectations with his client so that a collaborative, quick settlement could be reached. When it became apparent that was not the case, Chelsea did not hesitate to "play hardball" and made efforts to expedite the process where she could. Settlement in my divorce was reached after a settlement conference where I believe the judge was able to effectively reset my ex-wife's expectations of an outcome.
Ultimately, I am very satisfied with the legal services I received from Chelsea. I rated her "Good" in the "Responsive" category instead of "Excellent" only because there were a couple of times while Chelsea was on vacation where it was a little difficult to get questions answered in the same amount of time that I was accustomed to with her. At the time, that was a little stressful for me. Looking back, it is more likely that I was being impatient in those instances and that she would have responded sooner if it was an urgent matter. Either way, I highly recommend her services if you need them. Good luck!
