Mark Shields advised me to take an absolutely ridiculously low settlement for alimony during my divorce proceedings. The offer was for $1000 per month for twelve months. He and Anna (his paralegal at the time) strongly advised me to take it as this was the best deal I was going to get. That is a paraphrase of a note attached to the offer from my ex-husband. My case was very strong for more money and for a longer period of time. I hired a new attorney who got me $2000 per month INDEFINITELY.

Deanne was very knowledgeable and understanding to the family law issues and how the law works when it is regarding children. She and her team helped me through a difficult situation for the 2 years that I had to endure the issues that my family and I had to face. She was not easily swayed when it only came to the stories of either side. She is great at accessing the situation as it relates to children and how both parties need to joint parent and be fair. She has renewed my faith in the system.
