I met Stephanie in 2016, after being referred to her from another lawyer colleague of mine.  When I met her, there was an immediate sense of confidence I had in her.  She is kind, compassionate, realistic and willing to fight for her clients. 

I sat down with her and gave her a complete briefing of my situation. It was in the early stages of my separation and I felt pretty lost and unaware of my rights. Stephanie explained everything to me clearly and in a way I understood. The entire time I dealt with her, she came off as very down to earth and spoke to me at a level that made sense. On top of that, I knew exactly where I stood in my separation. I knew what to expect over the next several months. I knew what I could reasonably expect to get should I proceed via lawyer meetings, mediation or litigation. She let me know which arguments made sense to pursue and which ones would be an uphill battle. She suggested a "middle of the road" approach in order to resolve my matter with the best long-term outcomes possible. There is no doubt in my mind that if I had asked her to fight for every small battle (which I wouldn't advise to anyone going through a separation), that she would have done that for me.

I know most people worry about finances during a separation, just as I did. Stephanie is very reasonably priced compared to other lawyers I met with, or that I knew other people had retained. And the best part was, I was way more satisfied with her representation than anyone else I know who went with another lawyer. She made a genuine effort to reduce costs for me. Where I could take on some of the work and reduce the cost on myself, she let me know. 

I don't know any other lawyer that would do this.

At the end of the day, I ended up in a very good place in my separation. There is a saying that other family law lawyers use: "A deal is fair if both parties are equally unhappy at the end of a separation". I can tell you that I am not unhappy with my result, and it has a lot to do with Stephanie.

Thank you very much for all that you did for me Stephanie,

A happy client - February 14, 2018
