It was evident from the very beginning that you had a deep concern for the best interest of my children—and that proved to be a significant benefit for the entire family. Your insistence that I put them above all my selfish concerns spoke volumes to me about the kind of attorney you are. I appreciated your willingness to listen carefully to my opinion, to consider it and to not make me feel small for my lack of understanding divorce law. I have and will continue to recommend you because, in each case, I know you will focus on what is best for the client and his family. – Brad W.
Rhonda handled my collaborative divorce in 2008. She was very understanding but also very professional. She made what was probably the most painful experience of my life (getting a divorce after more than 35 years of marriage) as easy as it could possibly be under the circumstances. She kept us on track in meetings while still considering the feelings and emotions of the participants. She also ensured that everything relevant to the case was included in the final documents so there would be no need to readdress any issue in the future. While I definitely hope I never have to go through another divorce, if I did I would certainly contact Rhonda to represent me. – Sharon T.
Rhonda supported me through an amicable yet difficult divorce. I found her to be a compassionate attorney who had a unique ability to balance listening and honoring my wishes with advising me and protecting me during a time when rational decisions were difficult. I would highly recommend her to anyone. – Ann H.
I had been to see three other attorneys before visiting with Rhonda. I had not felt really comfortable giving my divorce case to any of them. After spending 15 minutes with Rhonda, I knew that I had found the right attorney to handle my divorce. I felt that she was not just a very competent attorney but she was very personable, and I believed that I could trust her with all of the things that I knew nothing about. In the coming weeks, she proved to me that I had made the right choice. I never worried about all of the bases not being covered, and my faith in her never wavered for a moment. – Joanne C.
