    I retained Shana Pennywell for a highly contested family law matter. I was impressed with how well prepared she was given the fact that I retained her less than 24 hours before a scheduled court hearing. Ms. Pennywell appeared in court armed with extensive case law to support my position and was very aggressive when advocating for me in my family law matter. Ms. Pennywell also drove me to the airport after court due to the fact that I flew in for the hearing. I highly recommend this attorney. Read less

After rotating in the court for 2 rescheduled sessions, I hired Lance. He was professional and ensured that my case was handled in a timely and professional matter. I thank God for Lance! Read less

    There is uniqueness in this team's attitude, professionalism, and character. I used this firm in 2015 for a divorce involving child custody and again in 2017 to make some adjustments. In comparison to other cases, mine was simple/routine. However it was an enormous worry of mine and I appreciate the attention/professionalism shown by Mrs. Shana Pennywel. The true concern shown from the entire firm before ever discussing cost gave me a sense of comfort that I would be well represented. Read less

Lance is an extremely talented, knowledgeable and diligent attorney with a rare knowledge of where family law and criminal law intersect. He LOVES the law and is not afraid to fight for his client's rights! Read less

    I worked with Jennifer Brown at this Law Firm. She is warm, puts you at ease, and works hard for you. I was involved in a long, drawn out divorce and sought Jennifer's help almost two years in the process. I fully credit her with helping me finalize things, keep my children safe, and ultimately make sure the judges were made aware of the antics of my ex-husband.
    Her paralegal, Lynn Congdon, works hard as well. Together she and Jennifer are a great team! Read less

    We feel so blessed to have been represented by Jennifer. She made an otherwise overwhelming situation tolerable. Knowing that we have not only incredibly competent representation, but someone who cared about us and our case, made all the difference in the world. Being able to assure the kids that they would be here, with us, being cared for, was the best gift we could have received! Thank you seems such a cliche thing to say, when you have without a doubt changed our lives. Read less

    I cannot thank Ryan enough for his help in getting me through the worse time of my life, my divorce. The divorce process lasted some 20 months. During the first few months, I went through two other attorneys before finding Ryan. With his guidance we were able to strategically focus our resources of time & money where it would be most beneficial. My wife out spent me 3 to 1 and she lost. Her attorneys were predatory but Ryan always had my best interests in mind. Read less
