what our clients are saying…

"Brilliant attorney that will fight for you. Stephanie is the only attorney in the past 9 years that has actually listened to me. She is very competent , knowledgeable and engaging. She has a heart of gold and a vested interest in your circumstances. Do not hesitate to hire Stephanie Rensch."


"Michael helped make a tough divorce easier to manage. He is very detailed, understanding, knowledgeable and made sure to answer any questions I may have in a very professional and prompt manner. I highly recommend Michael."


"Lorna is a brilliant attorney. She is very bright, organized and responds in a timely manner. Her advice is concise and clear, although she certainly listen's to the client carefully and asks all the important questions first. Her background in practicing other types of law was particularly helpful in my case."


"Mr. Jonathan Simon was a perfect balance of bed side manner and legal knowledge. He did an excellent job in planning for my mediation regarding my 6 years old son. However, what made him exceptional was his legal expertise that enabled him to change our strategy at the last minute during our mediation. My son now has a college fund, life insurance protection, and everything a mother would want for their child."


"What can I say about Laura Moffett.....she was FANTASTIC in every way in her role as a divorce attorney. It is an emotionally charged process for anyone going through a divorce. Laura was kind, patient, fair and always had my best interests at heart. She was ethical, on time and EXTREMELY knowledgable regarding the law and my rights. I would highly recommend her services to anyone going through this process and I have already referred her to several friends, each of whom have been equally just as pleased."


"Laura Moffett was great. She went above and beyond any expectation I could have had. She was professional at all times and kept me informed at every step of the way. Even the opposing attorney benefited from Laura's knowledge as she corrected several "mistakes" they had made. I hope I never need an Attorney again....but if I ever do, I know I have the best with Laura."


"Cynthia was way more than I expected. She was always in touch with me and keeping up to date with all the details in my divorce case. I'm very thankful for her hard work and dedication. I recommend her to anyone who wants/needs an attorney that will fight for you. Thank you Cynthia!!"


"Eric Bensen is an outstanding attorney. I highly recommend him.
Mr. Bensen assisted me in a Domestic Violence issue. He helped me with every step. Applying for an injunction, court hearings, and successfully getting a restraining order. He was calming when I felt like my world was falling apart. He knows almost everyone at the courthouse. They all respect, and trust him. He is professional, experienced, and will fight for you!"
