The opinions that matter most

see what our clients have to say
    "She helped me win each court battle I was in, including the appellate court."
    Katie Naset is amazing! I would highly recommend her to anyone going through a divorce or custody situation because her knowledge of the court system put my mind at ease.
    - Katie S.
    "They were very nice people to deal with and did a good job for me and my kids."
    Andrew Hope handled a no contact protection order and then Katie Nasset handled my divorce. They were very nice people to deal with and did a good job for me and my kids.
    - C.A.
    "She is great and everyone there. Would sometimes take 1-2 days for a response email so only reason I gave 4 out of 5 in response time- but it was fine."
    They had my best interest in mind even when I tried to not care about certain things. Looking back now I am glad they made me stick to my guns. Had a mentally abusive ex who tried to run the show and Katie would not allow it.
    - Jess
    "Good results and were able to settle things with ex' lawyer."
    We are almost done with the divorce process and I am happy I went in and met Andrew back in February, per referral from my sister. Good results and were able to settle things with ex' lawyer. Payment plan helped.
    - Sara
    "Katie was always two steps ahead of our other opponent, knowing exactly what we needed to do."
    She was the utmost professional, and very classy which is another important factor I thought, the way she carried herself in and out of the courtroom
    - Abbie F.
    "Charlotte is a knowledgeable, trustworthy attorney who guided me through the process."
    Not only was I impressed with Charlotte’s intuition, but also the loving care of the entire law firm. Her dedication and sincere interest in my case made the situation less stressful.
    - Kelsey T.
    "She was a great lawyer and did a WONDERFUL job! She was on-top of the process from start to finish."
    She made the process seem easy and painless. She has a lot of confidence and VERY good at her job! I would highly recommend Katie!
    - Jessica H.
    "Steve helped me get custody of my daughter and child support started."
    He did a good job of communicating with me throughout the entire case. He was also very fair and flexible with his billing which I was beyond grateful for.
    - Kira T.
