Why don’t you all, well, look like a law firm?
We certainly don’t act like a traditional, old-fashioned law firm. Yes, we provide excellent representation and have proven expertise in family law. But we set out to reimagine the family law firm and throw out old ways of doing things. We embrace new technology, making us more efficient. We offer a team approach so that someone’s always available and responsive to the client. We apply a holistic approach to our cases. We make our client experience a pleasant one, despite often-unpleasant circumstances.

Our office is inviting, intentionally not stuffy, and provides a calm atmosphere. We’re all warm, relatable and personable. Our clients actually like us and enjoy working with us.

How do clients describe your firm?
Clients describe us as “effective,” “responsive,” “caring,” “trustworthy” and providing a sense of calm. These are excerpts from actual reviews:

“…friendly and easy to work with. They made my process much [more] enjoyable than I anticipated.”

“Jessica, Leslie, and Jillian all made me feel as though they truly cared about what was happening and were supportive of me when I felt like all hope was lost.”

“Throughout the process she was a good friend and fierce advocate—genuinely sympathetic and comforting…”

“…she really instilled a sense of confidence, morale and hope in me during those tough times.”

“I always knew I could count on Samantha to peel me off the ceiling, coach me with options and a plan, and put the divorce on track.”

“A pleasure to deal with!”
