Great help for my daughter

I was recommended to Amanda Gratz when it became clear I needed an attorney to assist in my ongoing domestic violence and custody proceedings. The firm has been incredibly supportive and vigilant in representing me over the last 2+ years. When my primary attorney was out on extended leave Danielle Startwell stepped in to bring my case to a close. I highly recommend this firm.

after 3 failed attempts with other attorneys to get custody of my son this firm came through for us big time !! spicificlly mrs.hughes and mrs.staltwart handled my case, both are not only exceptional lawers but very caring people that will go above and beyond for their clients.

Even though they joined my case less than 4 weeks before my custody hearing, they still managed to organize/update everything in time making it possible to provide the most solid case possible with the available information resulting in the outcome I sought. If you need an honest opinion and solid representation for your family law issues, look no further!

I hired Christina Hughes. I hired her to get custody of my son. Christina Hughes is the best lawyer, she is very professional and always kept me up to date on my case. Mrs. Hughes is diligent and fights for her clients. I would highly recommended her to fight for your needs. I have full custody and sole custody of my son.

    Prudence Upton withheld information that the court could have used to determine the dangerousness of my son's father (her client). My son's father then went on to Kill my son. He is in jail, but Ms. Upton never had to account for her role in this tragedy.

    Christy did an excellent job at handling my case. She handled everything in a timely manner, gave great advice, and kept my best interest in mind throughout the entire process. She even felt like a friend during the year we worked together. The rest of the staff is wonderful too. Highly recommended Christy and Avery and Upton.

    Bruce and Prudence are awesome. They helped me through an ugly and sticky divorce and custody situation, gave sound advice, and represented my interests very well, both outside and inside the courtroom.

    I would never use these attorneys. I was having child support and custody problems and the associate Christy who I met with seemed more interested in defending my child's mother then myself. She gave me false information saying even if I came to an agreement with my child's mother on child support the judge would over rule our agreement if he or she thought it was not enough in child support and she said there is nothing she or anyone can do about my arrearments. Well we agreed on half of what child support was going to make me pay and deducted half of my areearments. She also said there was no way a judge would give me more time with my son if my child Support was backed up. Don't use these Attorneys. They are not here to help!

    Mr. Hecht and Mr. Stepanuk represented my sister in an extremely high conflict, custody case. They went above and beyond to communicate, research, question and reassure our family every step of the way. They are the perfect team who work collaboratively to walk you through any issue you may have. The dissolution of a family is never an easy path, but this firm makes it feel like a walk in the park. Spencer and Jon are dedicated, passionate, knowledgeable, and good people who have your best interest at heart. I highly recommend Hecht and Associates!!!

    The team at Hecht and Associates has represented me on multiple occasions. If I could give 10 stars I would. In prior years, I have hired other attorneys and the experience has been night and day. Rotten bananas and ice cream sundaes. You will not find another firm that cares about their clients the way Jon and Spencer do at Hecht and Associates. Their knowledge, honesty, experience, and aggressive manner will get you the results you want and need. Don't waist your money or time with other firms....rotten bananas, that may look good if you simply judge the peel. Just to find out later they are completly rotten, mush. Get yourself an entire ice cream sundae and call Jon and Spencer!!!! They leave no ingredient out and should your divorce / custody case end up in trial, they will display the most appealing dessert to the judge. Hecht and Associates thank you for everything you have done for my family.

    Spencer and Jonathan are the best attorneys around! From criminal cases, to divorce cases, even traffic violations, there is nothing they do not have extensive experience with. One of my cases was out of the county, and the firm was more than happy to travel . If you are in need of any legal help, Hecht and Associates will not disappoint!!!

    Spencer and John did an amazing job on my good friend’s custody case. They stayed in close contact, were detailed, assertive and supportive.

    They got my friend through a traumatic and aggressive case with care. They made sure no stone went unturned and they kept building a case up until the day of trial. They were there for this friend every step of the way. They kept my friend as calm as possible through this difficult process.

    Stacy has been wonderful. I was going through an ugly divorce, and prior to meeting Stacy I had another attorney. The prior attorney never made me feel secure of the process, so I had to let them go. Finding Stacy was the best thing that happened. I wish I would of found her earlier, but things happen for a reason. Stacy listens, understands, and is very knowledgeable of what she does. She is always reassuring, and makes you feel like family. Having an attorney to represent you requires someone like Stacy, who's there for you that you can feel secure with and open up to. She got me out of my ugly divorce and I thank her for that. I highly recommend Mrs. Stacy Talbott as an attorney.

    Having to hire an attorney isn’t always a pleasant experience. You find some who always seem to busy to get back to you or you get the one who has the “I’ll get to it later” attitude. Stacey Talbott is neither of these. When I contacted her she immediately had the answers I needed and quickly came up with a plan of action. I currently reside out of state and different time zones. I would email her in the middle of the night with a question and to my surprise would get an answer back no matter the time. Stacey really helped put me at ease during the whole matter, which isn’t easy todo especially when it’s having to do with fighting for your children. She made the process simple and helped me understand the process in the simplest of ways. I would strongly recommend her to anyone that I know that’s in need of a family law attorney. The service I received was exceptional!

    I was getting divorced and I had spoken with a couple of different attorneys before Stacy and I just didn't get a good feeling about them. When I met with Stacy I was put at ease immediately with her vast knowledge and experience of family law which was evident right from the start. She got me great results and the best outcome (better than I ever expected) possible. I am forever in her debt. I highly recommend her if you're in need of an attorney.

    Stacy has been awesome both during the process and subsequently! I could not ask for more.

    My experience with Stacy has been wonderful. I would highly recommend her for anyone that needs family law help!

    Ms. Lucero is an amazing attorney and woman. She is a true credit to our legal community. If I were going through a divorce/custody case, I'd hire her!! I have worked with her as an opposing counsel on a case and she is nothing but passionate, hard working, respectful, and courteous. She always puts her clients first. Definitely one of the best!

    Great service. Very knowledgable about the law and the process. Highly recommended.

    I hired Alicia Lucero after the attorneys previously representing me severely misplead my case and nearly caused me to miss crucial deadlines. She was courteous, professional, and worked hard to help me meet my deadlines and get an amicable outcome. What I really liked about her is that she never "sugar coated" anything. She made sure I knew what the realistic outcome of my case could be, along with its strengths and weaknesses. I would highly recommend her.

    Ms. Lucero exhibits strong credentials - a consummate professional, knowledgeable, hardworking, and trustworthy. Her fees are reasonable and I received my money’s worth in every way. After carefully researching her profile, I chose her to represent me and was extremely pleased with her services. Ms. Lucero cares about her clients and is always focused on what is in their best interest. I highly recommend her and the firm. She works tirelessly, is efficient, and gets the results you want! I cannot thank her enough!!!

    They are very professional and efficient. Ms. Lucero greatly helped me solving my case in a timely manner to the best satisfaction. Thank you.

      I was recommended to Amanda Gratz when it became clear I needed an attorney to assist in my ongoing domestic violence and custody proceedings. The firm has been incredibly supportive and vigilant in representing me over the last 2+ years. When my primary attorney was out on extended leave Danielle Startwell stepped in to bring my case to a close. I highly recommend this firm.

      Even though they joined my case less than 4 weeks before my custody hearing, they still managed to organize/update everything in time making it possible to provide the most solid case possible with the available information resulting in the outcome I sought. If you need an honest opinion and solid representation for your family law issues, look no further!

    From the initial consultation, to the end of my case, Mr. Solomon was extremely professional, upfront and honest with me. He explained everything very clearly using layman’s terms. Mr. Solomon has excellent knowledge of the law and is extremely logical with great common sense. The circumstances of my case were atypical and required “outside of the box” thinking, of which he was exceptional. Mr. Solomon was always readily available, became invested in my case and was always thinking strategically, even beyond office hours. Throughout the case, Mr. Solomon showed high moral character, which was very important to me. He possesses a great sense of humor which helped lighten the mood, even during high stress legal situations. One of the best qualities, if not the most important, is that Mr. Solomon shines in the courtroom. His legal argument was superb, he was always very well prepared, but most importantly, he can think and react on-the-fly, if the situation changes. He is very comfortable in the courtroom, making you feel that you have a consummate advocate. Mr. Solomon has my highest recommendation. If you need an outstanding legal advocate in the matters of family law, you must consider him.

    Nice man, didn't retain his services, but I met with him for a consultation, seemed to be very attentive and a good listener. Would recomen giving him your time.

    I cannot express enough positive feedback in regards to Alan. I have been working with him for close to a year on my complicated divorce case. Simply put, he is proactive, communicative, responsive, and relentless in his pursuit to win your case. He develops a great personal relationship with his clients, but at the same time isn't afraid to tell you how it is, giving great direct feedback and offering strategic direction for the case. He has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to practicing law in Maryland and knows the court system inside and out. Alan listens to his clients well and pivots to go in the direction they would like, all while providing great personal guidance along the way. Also, I was incredibly impressed by his demeanor in the courtroom. His ability to think on his feet in the moment and change course is second to none. I will be going back to him for all of my future legal needs, as I now not only think of him as my lawyer but as a trusted friend. If you want a highly competent, smart, knowledgeable lawyer that will do whatever it takes to win your case, while doing right for his clients, look no further.

    Alan represented me post trial in a matter where the judge denied me shared custody and had me paying more than I possibly could in awards and alimony to my ex-spouse. I hired Alan with the specific goal of reversing this order, and he had the judge actually reconsider key points of the original order. I received shared custody and the judge greatly reduced the monetary awards and payments to my ex-spouse. Since then, the relationship with my children has been great, I have been able to provide for them, and can continue living comfortable. As an added bonus, Alan represented me when my spouse appealed the judge's new order. He successfully argued in front of appellate judges. Alan is knowledgeable and courteous. He fights hard against opposing counsel. I cannot say enough good things about him.

    Alan has been my go-to guy for months now, you can't go wrong retaining him!

    Regina is an exceptional attorney who will guide you through this difficult time in your life, whether you are resolving the end of your marriage in court, or, preferably, through mediation or collaborative divorce. Although we live in different jurisdictions so she could not help me professionally, Regina helped counsel me as I worked my way through my own divorce. Her calm advice, depth of knowledge and understanding nature not only guided me on my personal path, but also inspired me to transform how I work with clients in my own practice. If you are in the DC area and are considering ending your marriage, going through a divorce, know someone else who is, or if you live I cannot recommend that you seek out Regina's legal counsel enough. If you don't live in the DC area, check out her Web site and spend some time looking through her many helpful blog posts; chances are she has already written about whatever you are going through!

    Since 2007, Regina and I have teamed together working collaboratively as coach and attorney, as well as co-presenters at numerous professional conferences. I enjoy working with Regina. She is one of my favorite legal mind friends and continues to be one of my first referrals for my client’s legal needs. There are many large law firms in the Washington DC area. Regina offers individual attention that many large law firms cannot. She is super smart and a pleasure to work with.

    Ms Demeo is an extremely talented and compassionate attorney with expertise in family law. I know from first hand knowledge of her caring for the well-being of children and making sure her clients are getting the best advice and service as possible. She goes above and beyond to do her research, consider all ramifications, encourages mediation and all appropriate avenues to address the situation of divorce and child custody to the best outcome possible. She is a consummate professional. I have recommended her to others and would not hesitate to do so in the future.

    My ex is controlling and angry. Regina's wise advice helped me to keep my sanity through both the ugly divorce and a later custody battle. She is professional and down to earth. I've referred friends to her, and they have thanked me profusely. She focuses on children's best interests. And, her rates are reasonable and she is very efficient. I recommend her highly.

    I've known Regina for over 10 years, during which time I've attended several of her public talks on legal issues coupled with financial literacy, and I was a guest on her tv show. She is both a thoughtful writer and public speaker, who is clearly dedicated to working with families and promoting healthier relationships with positive outcomes for vulnerable parties. She's experienced, succinct, caring, and professional. Regina is always my first call or recommendation if someone needs advice or counsel on anything marriage/relationship related.
