Stacie-Dee helped my family make a decision about pursuing an inheritance issue. She saved us time and money, by offering her sound advice. We will be using her again to get our wills in order to avoid nasty situations and to make our wishes clear to our loved ones.

After my attorney left the CTM firm for another job, my file was shuffled to Stacie-Dee Motoyama. My case was complex and we were in the middle of defending against several motions brought maliciously. She had a short period of time to get up to speed on my case but she just didn't. A month after taking me as a client, we appeared in court to defend against the biggest accusation of all; Ms. Motoyama fell on her face. She didn't respond to key accusations, she didn't know key dates that would have defended me, she didn't know how to locate key documents on the fly, and I wanted at that moment to push her aside and defend myself. I was found guilty. I immediately found a new (much better) attorney and spent the next 10 months going through the appeal process. In that court, the charge against me was overturned in a matter of minutes with the judge finding there was just no basis at all for me being found guilty. My new attorney had a heck of a job in front of her undoing Ms. Motoyama's mess. In other words, if Stacie-Dee Motoyama had managed my case properly at the critical point a year earlier, the path to a peaceful parenting plan and emotional health for everyone involved wouldn't have taken this very expensive detour. It cost me $20,000 for this bit alone. I'm sure Stacie-Dee Motoyama has strengths but I didn't see them in my case. I'd recommend almost anyone over her.

I interviewed several attorneys before choosing Stacie-Dee to represent me during my divorce case. I immediately felt I could trust her, she knew the law and that I would be in good hands. I was correct.
It was important to me to have an amicable settlement and that is exactly how it ended.
Stacie-Dee is a most competent attorney! Very knowledgeable, thorough, direct. A skillful negotiator and mediator. She is kind and fair and advocates mediation over litigation. But make no mistake - she is very capable of using the proverbial "pointy end of her boots"!
I am very glad I chose Stacie-Dee and could not have had a more capable attorney. I will recommend her, without hesitation, to anyone in need of legal counsel.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Stacie-Dee and I were able to resolve our matter without the need for trial, which allowed our clients to their desired result without incurring a significant amount of attorney fees. She was responsive to any requests that were made from me on behalf of my client, and she did not make any demands that were unreasonable or that would unnecessarily drag out the matter. I enjoyed working with her on that matter.
Charles Szurszewski, Divorce and separation Attorney
Stacie-Dee is an excellent attorney with many years and a wide variety of experience. She has an ability to understand clients' issues and work toward resolutions. She is well versed in mediation and litigation and knows when to use each. I highly recommend her.
