This firm is proficient and timely with their communication and incredibly organized. I will forever be thankful that we retained Camy to represent our family. She and her team were instrumental in our successful outcome.
I cannot begin to express all my gratitude for Camy and her team. I had a very long and difficult divorce and custody process. She represented my children as the Guardian Ad Litem and always kept the best interest of my children.
I wish I would've gone to her earlier. She is matter of fact, has a good business mind, is concise in communication and savvy about the law and legal process. Her support staff is also quite competent in supporting her and was great at taking care of the other details that go along with filing and scheduling, etc.
Very responsive and courteous, but more importantly, Camy was well experienced, knowledgeable and candid with her guidance and expectations in the "real" legal world. Her entire staff communicated with me in a timely and respectful manner as well as Camy herself and I'd definitely employ this firm again for any critical legal matter in the future.
Camy was the absolute right choice in helping up win our tough case. She is responsive, extremely knowledgeable and a true fighter which is exactly what we needed. Her entire staff was very friendly and made you feel like family. If you want your best chance for positive results choose Camy and her team.
