Very Unprofessional. I went to visit Ms. Alfrieda Kenny for a consultation in regards to a guardianship matter. Instead I got criticized on everything I did wrong in reference to processing my documents. She was extremely nasty and her associate Peachetta Defreitas was also rude. DO NOT waste your time or money with this firm.
