Andrea represented me in my divorce and did an incredible job given very challenging facts. She protected me and fought for my rights. I would not hesitate to recommend Andrea and her team for anybody looking for high quality legal firm that also has a very personal touch in making you feel comfortable, in a very difficult, emotional situation. N.D.
To say that I was blindsided, unaware, and unprepared when my ex asked for a divorce is an understatement. Andrea was my go to lawyer during the whole process. Her quick responses, compassionate demeanor, and organized style made the past few months that much more bearable. My children and I are going to be okay, and this is due in large part to Andrea's diligence throughout the discovery process. She is definitely someone you want, not only on your side, but by your side in such a stressful situation. N.C.
