What our Clients are Saying
"Trisha and Katy were great listeners and advice givers. Divorce sucks and there's no way around that but these ladies made it a smoother road to tread on. I couldn't have been happier - except if it wasn't happening at all. They took the time every time I needed to help guide me into making all the decisions that needed to be made and counseled me through tough situations and for that I will be eternally grateful.
