Education

What my clients say...

She took a nightmare custody battle that had been going on for over 2 years with no end in site and turned it around and got not only the custody stuff sorted out but the adoption done as well in under 6 months. She was knowledgeable and honest. I would 100% use her services again! Far better then the other lawyer we were using.

What my clients say...

Emily answered all of my concerns, gave great advice, and made me feel heard and important.
