    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. Read less

    I didn’t know what my rights were as a Dad but DeeAn guided me through my divorce and child custody with exceptional professionalism. My case was appealed to the AZ Supreme Court and DeeAn batted a thousand with every Judge along the way. Six years after the final divorce the nightmare returned. DeeAn guided me through the custody process protecting me and my children while exposing my ex as the appalling person she had turned into. I highly recommend DeeAn if you’re looking for the best outcome Read less

    DeeAn is an excellent lawyer. Her integrity, work ethic, compassion and dedication to her clients is extraordinary. Aristotle was right. DeeAn has made client satisfaction her top priority. In my case DeeAn handled a very acrimonious family law matter. The case took over two years and was finally resolved in my favor. Not only that, the judge, thanks to the excellent work by DeeAn and her team, was able to so clearly see the facts of the case I was awarded my court costs!!! Read less

    David is the BEST attorney from AZ to FL where he holds the Bar in both states. He did a very time consuming, difficult case that involved false accusations that he proved as just that (false accusations) and quickly got me primary custody and then a relocation 10 months later 2000 miles away from the father. David Goldfarb is professional, knows the judges and how to approach the case with them, he will fight for you to the death, he is aggressive and does what is right!! HE'S THE BEST!!! Read less
