Jamie, Nate and Kate were SO helpful through every facet of my divorce. Things were languishing for a long time, but as soon as I sat down with them they got everything on track. I should have contacted them sooner, highly recommend this team!

Jamie is amazing to work with, she always makes me feel comfortable, safe and heard. Dealing with divorce and my ex-spouse can be incredibly stressful and intimidating; however Jamie lays everything out in a very practical way for me to get to solutions rather than stay in the mess. I am so grateful to have her in my corner!
