I was lucky to have engaged Judy as my divorce lawyer and am grateful I did.
Judy is a very personable and professional lawyer who is very prompt in her replies and efficacious in her delivery. She made me feel at ease from the first time we met and adeptly handled all the proceedings.
Greatly appreciate the work and support she has given.
