Courtney was beyond helpful in the process of getting primary custody of my daughter. She would always answer my calls and gave me wonderful advice. I was not worried in the slightest during court or in the process at all. She is very easy going and someone that always has your best interest at heart...she wants to make a difference in your life and give you the best shot. Have and will always refer friends and family to this exceptional lawyer.
Thanks a lot to Courtney for helping me out with my divorce. I was so despaired and lost, with no idea what were my rights and what could I do when I first met her. She is very professional, rational, and does her job very well. She worked so hard in order to meet my expectations. I am so thankful to her job, and would like to recommend her service to everyone, as she is a great family lawyer! Thanks a lot for your job, now I feel secure and ready to move on!
