"Excellent, Straight-Forward, and Solution Oriented"
Following a long-term marriage and a rather smooth 10 year post-divorce period of co-parenting, my ex-wife had a change of heart and decided to retain a "bull-dog" of a lawyer to make some changes and try to re-enter her children's lives. Needless to say, this was very disrupting to my teenage sons and our family unit. It wasn't fair and I was being attacked, even though I wasn't the one at fault for my children wanting to have nothing to do with their Mother.
I was angry, upset, and quiet honestly afraid of what might happen if the Court didn't fully understand the truth and what was really happening behind the scenes. I started looking around for a recommendation for a "good" family law attorney. By "good" I do not mean one that just stirs the pot to create more problems so they can make more money. Dena's name came up several times. Her reputation for fairness, reasonableness, and professionalism was untarnished.
When I first met Dena, I was very upset and wanted "to set the record straight".....Dena listened to my story and in a very matter-of-fact manner explained the law to me and what needed to be done to protect my children. She immediately put me at ease, and went to work to find a solution - - Not to stir the pot and make more problems. She was very clear and concise with the planned approach. From the very beginning she had my children's best interest at heart and that really proved to win the day as we progressed through the conflict. I am happy to report that Dena's mannerism and professionalism quickly hushed the "bull-dog" and very quickly moved our matter towards resolution.
Dena is an attorney you can trust. She might not always tell you what you want to hear, but she always works to find an amicable solution - especially where children are involved.
Dena and her excellent, friendly, and knowledgeable staff kept me well informed of all court actions, motions, and correspondence with opposing counsel, and was always quick to return my calls or emails.
