“My family and I have been Debbie’s clients for several years. We have only the highest praise for her professional attention to our legal needs and would recommend, without reservation, her services to friends and colleagues.”
“In 2009, my entire life was turned upside down and I needed an attorney. From the moment I met Debbie, I knew that I was in excellent hands. She is extremely professional, has a very calming demeanor and, most importantly, she truly listens. Debbie is extremely knowledgeable and provides information in a manner that can be understood, and is very thorough with every task at hand. Her ability to provide me with inner peace demonstrates her impeccable character. It is an honor to have Debbie as my legal counsel.”

“I have contracted Debbie for personal and business legal matters for many years. In addition to my own needs, my wife and I are now beginning to care for our parents — facing a whole new set of legal matters. In every situation, Debbie not only understands what we must do, but she also empathizes with the emotions involved. She creates an environment of calm and confidence as we navigate totally unfamiliar ground. Debbie’s practice reminds me of something I heard years ago: ‘Very few people care how much you know until they know how much you care.’”
“Debbie addressed our complex will and estate planning needs as if they were her own, ensuring that our wishes were clearly incorporated into all documents. We truly appreciate the firm’s professionalism, legal knowledge and undivided attention to the unique requirements of each client. It is a pleasure dealing with Debbie and the entire staff, putting our minds at ease regarding some of the most important facets of our lives.”
