  • Susan Millican O'Brian

    Loretta and I have been opposing counsel on matters in the past. Since she began focusing exclusively on collaborative law, I have not had the privilege of working with her, but I know she is an amazing attorney and I highly recommend her as a collaborative law attorney or mediator.

  • Paul C. Burton

    It has been a special privilege to know Loretta Story these past 7 years. We worked together as trustees of the Eastside Legal Assistance Program (ELAP) where Loretta was exceptional! I have recommended Loretta to clients seeking a Family Law Attorney because she is outstanding!
