WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

  • Excellent, knowledgeable, professional representation. Superb lawyer. Understood all the complicated details of my case instantly and gave me a comprehensive review of options. Her office is very busy and everyone seems to be very professional in their conduct. I recommend wholeheartedly.

  • Sarah handled my custody case. It was not the easiest of matters as my husband was out of the country. She handled all of the necessary filings, kept me apprised during the process and more importantly for me, was honesty with what to expect at court and during the whole process. I appreciated her explaining each step, the potential timeline and outcome. She successfully obtained sole legal custody for me and I will always be grateful for her assistance and caring.

    -Lisa

  • The entire team did an outstanding job throughout the entire divorce process. The whole staff was entirely trustworthy, objective and helped my family and I come to an agreeable settlement. At the same time they solidly represented myself and my interests with the utmost respect and professionalism. I have no reservations whatsoever about recommending them to anyone whatsoever.

    -John

  • Top-Rate Lawyer. Theresa Donnellan is not only an excellent lawyer, but she is also kind and compassionate. Theresa and her firm helped me during a very difficult time in my life and I will be forever grateful to them for the professionalism, attention to detail, care and understanding that went into every aspect of our correspondence. This firm is a class act!

    -Stacey

  • As anyone who's gone through it knows, divorce sucks. I didn’t know what to expect when Sarah first walked through the door. I was raw, uneasy and on edge about the whole procedure. Immediately Sarah made me feel safe, supported, and let me know we were going to get through this together. She verbally gave me an outline of what to expect and how things we're going to move forward from there. Sarah was always readily available to answer questions, offer counsel, and even a bit of emotional support when I felt my world was crumbling. Sarah was always fast with the paperwork and doing all she could to speed up efficiently, a dreadful, long, bitter divorce. I would classify Sarah as a great asset, I would definitely hire her again for myself, and recommend her to others. She's pretty awesome. My divorce is over, and I don’t think it could’ve gone any smoother.

    -Maria

  • Excellent Lawyer. Fully explained to me all my options in a very professional manner. I felt very well represented. Tried to resolve all my issues in a timely fashion. I would recommend wholeheartedly.

  • It was a great pleasure working with Sarah Wood and her team. Sarah is all you want an attorney to be - very professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and prompt. My case had the potential to be very messy, but with Sarah expertise and knowledge of the situation, she advised me of possible outcomes, and was honest and clear in her assessment. Sarah makes herself available by e-mail, phone or in person taking much of the stress out of the process. She will work with you toward finding the best solution for you and for your situation. In the end, I know I got the best possible outcome and I am beyond satisfied with the result. Sarah’s representation made all the difference. If you find yourself in need the legal services. I would recommend Ms. Wood without reservation. Thank you!

  • Excellent Legal Team. Terry and her staff went the extra mile to help me update our Last Will & Testament, Living Wills, and Power of Attorney. The documents were brought to today's standards and were done quickly, precisely and very professionally. I recommend her to all!

    -Jack

  • Excellent experience with Terry. She is knowledgeable, professional, honest, and understanding. I have nothing but good things to say about Terry. I felt she prepared me thoroughly for what to expect throughout a sometimes difficult process. Her support staff is always helpful as well.
