Landlord/Tenant Issue, Sonia Montalbano: Client Review

“She helped us resolve a very difficult situation with a tenant. We were expecting litigation on both sides, but she calmly but forcefully got both sides to understand the other’s situation, and worked out an agreement without litigation. We were completely satisfied and feel she did a great job.”

Real Estate Transactions, McKean Smith: Client Review

“Have consulted several times on real estate transactions concerning arbitration, legal issues and addendum preparation that is out of my expertise as a Broker. My attorney was very knowledgeable and quick to respond when working within a contractual timeline situation. I have also referred him to my clients for Family Estate Planning. I highly recommend him and will use him in the future when needed.”

Post Dissolution, Deanna Rusch: Client Review

“Super honest. Very upfront about the process. Was in communication the entire time. Gave me peace of mind. I used Deanna for a parenting plan joint decision making contempt charge I was facing in regards to getting my son braces. I only wish I had hired her sooner. Commissioner had ruled in my favor and thrown out the contempt charge after hearing all of the facts and having known history about my case. Unfortunately, my ex-husband appealed the commissioners ruling. When the case was seen by a judge he was very black and white on the topic and unaware of past details which moved him to overrule the commissioner. Even with this outcome, I’m thankful I had Deanna and her team on my side. I still see it as a win/win. Commissioner ruled in my favor and my son is finally smiling in photographs. That’s a huge win in my and my families’ opinion. I’ll use Deanna again if needed. She knows her stuff and makes you a priority.”

Dissolution of Marriage, Deanna Rusch: Client Review

“If you need to WIN, you need DEANNA because that’s all her and her paralegal Dominique know how to do! Deanna is a lot like Chuck Norris. Both of them have never lost at anything they have ever done or attempted to do. Its a very well known fact that if Chuck Norris needed an attorney he would hire Deanna and her team faster than a bee-stung stallion. Do yourself a favor and hire Deanna before your ex does! And tell her Brian sent you.”

Dissolution of Marriage, Deanna Rusch: Client Review

“I was one of the clients who had the nasty type of divorce, due to my ex-wife lying about everything and wanting to take from me as much as she could, most of all she wanted to leave me out of my kids life. Deanna absolutely nailed my case in every shape and form, she has so much experience under her belt in every aspect, you name it. After my case was finally over due to respondent milking the time with divorce, I/Deanna won the case at 100% as we wanted. Deanna doesn’t waste your time and money, she always keeps it professional and her main strategy is to win and end the case as quick as possible. I very highly recommend Deanna as a Divorce/Child custody lawyer and have no doubt you will be very happy with her whether you’re simply looking for consultation or you have a tough case to fight. God bless Deanna and her team for always remaining at their best.”

Dissolution of Marriage, Collin McKean: Client Review

“Collin McKean represented me throughout a demanding, heavily-contested divorce case that culminated in a multi-day trial. I found Collin to be knowledgeable, professional, ethical and effective, and in the end a really good person. His staff members were always polite and supportive. My case was complex, involving multiple real properties, many accounts, heavily-commingled inherited funds, wasteful spending, pensions, and disagreements over employability and retirement status. Mr. McKean grasped all of it, and crafted a detailed, nuanced narrative for the trial that illuminated the court’s understanding while undermining the opposing party’s aggressive, misleading ploys. The resultant outcome was very equitable and a huge relief; the court concurred with almost all of the divorce terms that Collin proposed at trial. In lessor hands, I could have ended up impoverished, but thanks to him, I can still have a life. I recommend him.”
