Client testimonials

My son has recently gone through a separation and custody dispute with the assistance of Marlene, I cannot praise their service enough. He was provided with open and honest advice throughout this whole ordeal. Marlene’s expertise put us all at peace as we navigated an area none of us were familiar with. She responded promptly to all our questions, with very clear advice and suggestions (even though they may of seemed to her like silly questions) . I cannot recommend this service higher, I certainly hope we don’t need their services again but if we do we won’t hesitate to contact them. We can’t thank Marlene enough for all she did and all her expertise.
