  • First of all, I received a 25% lower rate than the other lawyers. As soon as I talked with Joni on the phone I knew I needed to switch to her from the lawyer I had already decided! She sounded energetic, smart, and she’s very compassionate and personable. Joni did fantastic in court! She was smart, quick, tactical, tenacious and definitely intimidating. She helped me get rid of a Temporary Restraining Order from my ex and made him absolotuly exposed who he really is in front of everybody! I felt so relieved since the restraining order would impact my life so drastically! and Justice has finally been served!

    I am forever grateful that I come across Joni and I would recommend her to anyone!

  • Joni is the best. I had hired another attorney before I met Joni and I regretted it. This is for a Domestic Violence case. He was super expensive and didn't take the time to care about my case. Joni really cared about me and my case especially because of my family court case and my children's custody at issue. She was great working with my family attorneys as well. I am very grateful for Joni. She made things work out a lot smoother. I highly recommend her to anyone in any situation. She will take care of you.

  • Joni handled my case as if it were her own. She kept me informed of the developments at every step in the process. I strongly recommend her. Unlike many lawyers, she returned my calls promptly and came up with defenses I would have never thought of. I hope I never have to hire a lawyer again, but if I do, I know who it will be.

  • Being new to the area another attorney recommended Joni. Thank the heavens because I had no idea what to do. Joni was very helpful given my situation. If you are looking for assistance, it would be in your best interest to contact someone who knows what they are doing; and Joni knows what she's doing. Thank you Joni 🙂 knowing you handled everything I had one less thing to worry about on my honeymoon.
