Client Testimonials: 
​​"Thank you again for all you and Julie have done to help us through this...."
"Thank you so much for helping (name withheld). He really appreciates your kindness, as do I. You are a good friend and an excellent lawyer. My son couldn't be in better hands." 
"The Cutchin Angels" "Thank you very much for your patience over the past few months...."
"This long often confusing legal ordeal to gain full custody of my son in order to protect and provide for him as best I can has been the most stressful and nerve-racking ordeal I've had to endure. Your calm expertise and professional handling of my case helped keep me sain and stable, and most importantly hopeful. Thank you for doing your job well and for being kind and reassuring along the way." 
"Thank you for asking about the well-being of my son during the mediation process. Since my date of separation four years ago, I've been in hearings, meetings and legal proceedings where he has been listed and acknowledged "for the record" as well as being the reason for the proceeding...until you asked yesterday, no one has had the presence of mind to ask that simple yet most meaningful question "How is he doing?"...maybe there is a glimmer of hope for humanity afterall."
"We can't express our thanks for all you've done. Thank you for helping us as a family to keep our son. We owe you all so much and you will be forever in our thanks and prayers."
"Thank you for being there."
"Thank y'all so much for everything."
"We want to thank you for all you did for (name withheld) and I. I'm glad you always believed in us. What a long process that was. Thank you so much for everything. I'm so pleased with the work you did and how things turned out. Thank you for putting up with my craziness and ultimately having mine and my sweet girls best interest at heart! Thank you to all of the wonderful staff for your help, advice, and patience." 
"We're so grateful for your help throughout this very hard year. Without your help and guidance, we would still be lost."
