“I found Shannan and her staff to not only be knowledgeable about the law, but emotionally supportive as well. From the moment we talked, I felt a confidence that far exceeded my expectations. Shannan listened, gave me her best advice, and then when I made the decision as to how I wished to proceed, she and her staff jumped into action. I never had to prompt them or worry that they would let something fall through the cracks.

Moreover, I knew that if we had to go to court, Shannan had my back there too; but thankfully, court was unnecessary. I had such an ironclad plan when I confronted my spouse for separation/divorce, he had no choice but to accept my offer. Because of the information I received, he knew was defeated. Dare I say, it was almost “easy.”

I don’t mean to suggest that every situation would work out the same. Each person’s story is different. I can say with 100% assurance, however, that Tuorto Family Law is, gavel down, the best family law office in the area. Shannan, Lisa, and Tracey will be sure that you receive the most professional service and expert advice. Armed with that? You will have the best experience possible. For me, this office was well worth every penny for the peace of mind I got in exchange. I am now living the life I deserve and am so incredibly happy. I will forever be grateful to this law office for the part they played in getting me here.”
