I was lucky enough to be referred to Pattie. My spouse (at the time) and I were amicable so didn't want to make a fuss over hiring a divorce attorney. Pattie held my hand by giving me the paperwork I need to complete for her. She provided me step by step instructions how to work with the court myself, appear, and file. It sure was an empowering experience. Pattie gave clear guidance when asked. Her vast experience means she could make suggestions for our situation. I would feel very confident referring anyone important to me (and I have!) to work with Pattie for their legal matters, especially family law.
Pattie did a wonderful job guiding me through an amicable divorce between my ex and I. She provided me with thorough instructions on what documents to file, when, and where. She guided me through the development of the Parenting Plan and explained in detail how certain verbiage would be viewed and potentially ruled on by the courts if my ex or I decided to revisit or wished to alter the plan in court in the years to come. I think the clarity and guidance provided by Pattie has directly contributed to the successful co-parenting my ex and I experience today. I would (and have) pass my recommendation of Pattie's services along to anyone considering divorce today.
