Hear From Others
I Have Helped

  • Great Attorney in a difficult time

    “I utilized Andrea's legal services to help me resolve a difficult and bitter child visitation dispute. Andrea was able to successfully make in-roads on a new visitation agreement that both parties could support. I am extremely pleased that Andrea was able to resolve my legal matter within the 45-day deadline I put forth. Although I hope not to have to return to court for another family related matter, however if I did, I would strongly consider retaining Andrea services in the future. Andrea is a true professional and will get the "job" done.”

  • Andrea has worked hard on my case and I am very very grateful for that

    “No one would ever believe how much Andrea has helped me go through this. She has helped me keep my spirits up when I have been at my lowest point in my life. I never thought I’d be getting a divorce from someone I once loved. I would refer her to any of my friends. Andrea has worked hard on my case and I am very very grateful for that. I would probably have given up and just taken what ever I could get. She is a great lawyer.”
