- Child Custody
- Spousal Maintenance
The communication is very poor. Will not respond over the weekend.
Hiring a lawyer is not an easy decision and is usually done under stress. In my case, hiring Sterling Law was a great decision.
Keeping me up to date and giving sound advise to follow. Having patience, compassion and understanding for what I'm going throug.
Living in another state, but always kept in the loop
We live more than 1,200 miles away. Toby kept us in the loop and is keeping us in the loop on our Legal situation. He has honestly made this process easier by telling us everything that is going on and how things will pan out. I can only imagine how hard it is to keep in touch and go to aperances for us while we are not close enough to do so AND still keep us totally involved in every aspect of the process.
Trisha Festerling is absolutely wonderful! I could not have asked for better representation. Thanks again!!
I didn't feel like my attorney and I were on the same page. There was no sense of urgency with him. I don't feel that he was very interested in my case or being my advocate. I was my own advocate. Things were done very last minute. There were multiple instances of communication breakdown which caused me tremendous stress. My concerns were minimally addressed or ignored throughout the process. At the end of the day I got a deal I can live with but if I had to do it all again I would have chosen a different attorney.
Supportive Attorney, Average Support Staff
Trisha, has been supportive and understanding in my divorce, but I think the support team that works with her could use some improvement.
I love the pricing scheme, but have some reservations about the specific attorney I am working with. When an attorney doesn't respond to multiple email and text messages over time, you have to wonder.
She helped me think and reason through what I needed
I went through a very difficult and stressful divorce. Trisha represented me and she was helpful, knowledgeable, and compassionate. She helped me think and reason through what I needed, and how to deal with my difficult situation clearly. She was firm in negotiation, but not antagonistic and got results.
Erin is a great communicator
Empathetic, knowledgeable, and professional. Erin is a great communicator. I felt comfortable right away. She told me what to expect and how she was going to proceed with my case. Erin has kept me in loop throughout the entire process. I was very lucky to have her as my attorney.
Well, at $230/hour (which includes paralegals) I would expect to get a better result than what the court ordered.
Friendly and helpful
Friendly and helpful. Great service.
Meg has great qualities such as Competency, compassion, very good listener, intelligent, confidence, reassuring, you can tell she works very hard for her clients. I'm very glad to have her.
Thanks for the Mediation Help
Everything was great
Meg kept showing up and providing information on the processes that are unknown to us. Gave me confidence
Quicker communication that being said with limited understanding or experience with the legal system
Good local firm
My attorney fought for me
I was represented very well, my attorney fought for me, and definitely made sure my interests were well represented. I felt as though Dan, my attorney, would go to war with me, and do everything in his power to make sure I came out on top.
I have been given confidence and stress relief
Although I am still in the middle of my case, my attorney Mr. Toby Kinsler is a true gift. For the first time, I have been given confidence, stress relief, and honestly eagerness to pursue equal time with my son's. Toby truly treats me like a friend that he's going into battle for. He defiantly believes in what he strives for. Thank you so much for providing the best there is.
Representing my best interests
Taking my interest too heart. They are truly representing my best interests. Thanks again to an outstanding team.
Helped me through every step of the process
Even at our first meeting I could tell how experienced and dedicated Latrice was. From the start she took the time to really learn about my case and help me through every step of the process. The case was more complicated than I thought but thanks to her everything went smoothly for me and my family.
Professional and Friendly
Your receptionist are very professional and friendly. My attorney responds to my emails in a timely matter and was very friendly and I feel is doing the best for me
Takes the time to explain your options so you can feel confident in your decisions.
Keeping me informed answering questions in a timely manner
Extremely personable and helpful
Our Attorney Dan Exner, did an excellent job on our case. He was great getting back to us with information on a timely basis and was extremely personable and helpful. Very bright young man. Highly recommend him!
I am experiencing a little lack of communication with a time sensitive issue.
Great experience, I would recommend to anyone
It was nice to work with a law firm that deals only with family law. Not having to worry about every papercopy, every call, every email and having to worry about my retainer fee put my mind at ease. I have been recommended and had to deal with lawyers that focus on other areas of law and none of them made me feel as comfortable about my case as attorney Navarrette did. She was always very quick to respond to calls or email, day or night. If I ever need anything again I will not hesitate to contact attorney Navarrette again.
I hired Katy to handle my divorce. She and her staff were professional and incredibly helpful throughout the entire divorce process.
Accurate, timely, effective
Understanding and well spoken
I have nothing but the best to say about Albert. I was very fortunate to have him on my side. He's understanding, well spoken and did a great job.
After my first meeting with Attorney Festerling it was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. I have complete confidence in her ability and knowledge. She is honest with me and returns calls. She's an intelligent woman, who includes you in the process. You're never in the dark. Sterling also has a payment process that's reasonable. I would recommend this office.
Katy did an awesome job. Your firm was great. I would recommend to anyone.
She handled my case very well. Thought i was gonna lose, she made things happened the way I wanted. Thank you!
Always listen to our questions
I found them thur yelp I read all the reviews. They were everything everyone said they were. Very friendly. Always listen to our questions and concerns. We hired them on the spot. I know their going to do their job. Thanks yelp.
Good so far…
So far so good. I will reserve final judgment until I see the end numbers.
Holly was excellent. Knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and brought results.
Caring and compassionate law firm
What a caring and compassionate law firm. I would recommend Sterling to anyone that is looking for a someone who goes above and beyond.
Knowledgeable, Caring, Dedicated
Holly is well versed in all things divorce. She gets deep into the details and find solutions quickly.
Dan made me feel very comfortable
I worked through my divorce with Dan Exner. He was absolutely amazing! I really appreciated that I could always email with an questions or concerns and always received a response in a very timely manner. Dan made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole divorce. He always made me feel like he took time to listen to the issues that were important to me and made sure to help put those issues as a top priority. I would absolutely recommend this law firm to friends and family and call them if I have any family law needs in the future.
He relieved my anxiety
Before I spoke to Toby I was worried about my divorce. After I spoke to Toby I was both calm about my case, and truly impressed by his expertise and commitment to me and my family's future. If you have a family law issue, these are the people you should speak to.
Love the fixed price model, great communication
Thank you for reaching out! So far, I am extremely happy with my decision to leave the firm I was with and go with Sterling! My attorney through Sterling is Derek Allen, and I couldn't be more pleased with the service he is providing. He stays in great communication, and is completely on the same page as far as how I want to approach my very messing and contested divorce. I also really love the fixed price model! It's really nice that there are no surprises! I really like that, whether I can afford all the stages or not, at least I know what they will cost and won't be constantly blind-sided with addition cost the way I was with my previous attorney. At least with Sterling, I know what could be coming and can try to prepare for additional costs the best I can. I really love the way your firm does business, and will absolutely recommend Sterling to anyone looking for an excellent divorce attorney!
Holly goes above and beyond!
She truly cares about you and your case
Attorney Erin Boyd really went above and beyond. You can tell that she truly cares about you and your case. Really takes the time necessary to adequately represent you and make sure that you're satisfied!
Understanding my concerns and responding – advising me on my options
Dan's demeanor is always cool regardless of the pressure. He gets things done quickly and professionally. Dan is a skilled problem solver and actively listens well.
I can't say enough positive things about Holly. She is a great attorney and a compassionate human being.
I feel the representation from Katy is very good. She is a smart attorney who I feel has my back.
If your in search of a firm that will come through for you without question hire Sterling Law Offices. Jim is one of the individuals at the firm you want in your corner.
Compassionate, understanding and strong support.
Fantastic representation. Compassionate, understanding and strong support. Highly recommend.
Thanks for the coaching session!
Trisha is awesome I have zero complaints
Maureen provided useful advice during my divorce and she was very responsive. I'm glad I found her.
Holly Mullin is an amazing lawyer. She provides outstanding support.
Dan was a blessing. From the intitial consultation I had peace and felt safe. He was attentive to my requests and that made all of the difference.
Answer and return phone call from clients, rather than duck them. Do not allow reverse sexism to color the service rendered in divorce cases. So far I feel as if I have been conned out of $3500.00.
I will highly recommend your services to anyone
Thank you Sterling Law Offices, for helping me with my case. My situation was complicated with a lot of emotions, attorney Trisha Festerling and Katy Eckhardt were both professional and well organized. Thank you for your time and effort in this matter, it made a world of difference with my situation. Again your time and professionalism were greatly appreciated in this matter, I will highly recommend your services to anyone in need of a great attorney! Thank you again Sterling Law Offices!
Meg O marro did an amazing job I could not have asked for a better lady to represent me she respected me and listened to what I was saying great job and thank you so much for everything
Dan was supportive
Dan Exner was supportive throughout my difficult case. I really felt that he was fighting for what was best for my child and despite obstacles faced he helped guide me through the difficult and scary court process. Pricing was also very fair. I would absolutely hire him again
Confident in Court
Dan opened my eyes to the rights I thought were closed to a father. He is a lawyer you feel at peace of mind during the case.
Responsive and genuine
Responsive, genuine and effective fighter for me and my family. Always very nice and easy to work with but was tough when necessary.
An attorney who fights
From the first meeting at their office, it was clear I made the right choice.
I think the fixed amount per case is expensive and limiting. I like my attorney Dan Exner, but will not be back for another case because of the expensive per-case flat fee
Attorney Milton has been very attentive and has been great to work with?The office staff is also very polite and helpful. Thanks for everything so far.
Trisha explained every detail clearly
Very experienced. Trisha explained every detail clearly. Very friendly and accommodating.
Toby Kinsler was very quick response and attending my needs.
Easy to get in touch, easy to talk to
Erin's easy to talk to. It was never hard to get in contact and get a response from her when I had questions. I'd definitely recommend her!
Seemed too Long
I think explaining the process of how a settlement can come together would help. I was under the impression that after the Financial worksheets were sent in, that the two attorneys would actually work together. Since nothing really happened for several months my ex and I decided to come up with our own division of assets and turn it into the attorneys so we could accomplish a simple divorce in 8 months.
Response and access.
Took great care of me during the divorce
Trisha really cares, and took great care of me during the divorce. She's not only a great attorney, but she is also a warm and caring person. My divorce was a heart wrenching life experience and I needed someone that would consider my family and our circumstances and who'd take care of us. We weren't disappointed. Trisha was all that and more.
Slow and Delayed Communication
The response from atty Festerling has been very slow and delayed. Lately, it's typically days before I hear a response and it's usually with me sending a follow up message
Finally a lawyer that cares
Meg got me thru a painful situation and always seemed to keep my interests at the top of her priorities.
Quick response time
She had quick response and offered great advice.
Easy to talk to, easy to understand
The first thing that surprised me about Holly was how easy she was to talk to. Whenever you find yourself confused, she takes the time to explain it to you in a way that's easy to understand. It never felt like she was talking over me or down to me, she was very patient. You'll be well taken care of with Holly.
I really feel like I know what's expected. I'm in contempt of court for keeping my child. I went to mediation with a lot of questions and didn't hear from her. So having to go and face my Ex was horrible, needless to say it didn't go welll and I needed a sheriff escort to my car on Friday. With all this said I do think she is very nice I just don't feel secure about my court date on May 8th.
I felt confident and comfortable in court
As good an experience as you can have going through a divorce. I worked with Attorney Dan Exner after starting my divorce by myself and he was a great resource. I felt confident and comfortable in court and was not surprised by anything.
I feel my case had a fair outcome.
very friendly, open, and honest
Thank You very much Toby for handling my divorce case. I'm totally satisfied to get my freedom and normal life back together. I will refer you to anyone who gets involved in divorce matter. Was very pleasant and easy to cooperate with you! Thank you very much again!
Understood my issue and concerns right away
Attorney Eckhardt was great. She helped me so much and understood my issue and concerns right away. There is not enough words or thanks I can give her! If you need a lawyer there's no better choice.
I appreciate the work that Attorney Festerling has done for me. Thank you!
She was patient, careful and very accessible
Thanks to Katy everything went smoothly without any problems. She was patient, careful and very accessible the whole time. I felt I got great value with her and the staff in the office were great as well!
First consultation with Trish, was all business. When we started the process in the court i felt my attorney was there to give the petitioner what ever she wanted. I didn't have a voice in front of the commissioner.
He gets things done
Attorney Dan Exner is the best, he always responds . He understood completely the emotional stress of a divorce, and he gets things done. Thank you
Really care about their clients
Fabulous team really care about their clients and work hard to get best results possible.
Want a Refund
Since my case was thrown out because of technicality at least you should offered me some of my Money back
Attorney Festerling was diligent in resolving my case as quickly as possible against apposing counsel who was non-responsive, illusive and a bit childish.
Great service & support staff
Dan did everything to make it it as stress free as possible
I was going through a very difficult divorce and Dan did everything to make it it as stress free as possible. He was calm, explained all of my options, and did not pressure me in any way. I always felt in control of my case. He gave me the facts and let me decide what was best for me.
Holly made my divorce process easy and painless
Holly made my divorce process easy and painless. She kept me informed of every step, answered all my questions and kept it as simple as possible. Whenever I had a couple of follow-up questions, she called me right back with the answers even though my case was done. I liked the fixed fee price I'd definitely recommend her!
Holly and Christine are great!!!
Thanks for your time and effort
Thanks very much for all the time and effort you spent on me!
Meg was a great attorney. She helped me get great results in court.
I have set up a court date. Other than that, I have no feedback.
Handled a delicate situation with care and kindness
Holly assisted me with my family law case earlier this year. She handled a delicate situation with the utmost care and kindness and her costs were reasonable. I cannot recommend anyone more strongly than I would Holly.
Dan, Christina, Kelly and Lynne did a fantastic job!! Wouldn?t have kept as sane as I did without them. I knew the first time I met with Dan that I wanted to retain him for my divorce. I cannot thank him enough.
Seems too busy
Polite and professional
Sterling Law was polite and professional from start to finish. Communication is key and all of my questions were answered. My attorney was compassionate about my case and knew what they were doing.
Toby Kinsler is amazing!
Toby Kinsler is amazing! He went above and beyond what I could have ever expected. Thank you so much <3
I had a coaching session with Meg O'Marro and despite being late to our appointment she was fair and attentive. She gave me the advice she thought I needed and if something comes up she will be the first lawyer I go to!
Derek listened to my situation closely and was very generous with his time when something needed explained. Also, he always back to me in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of help. A pleasure to work with.
I am very impressed with my attorney Erin Boyd and her professionalism with my case.
Professional, user friendly firm
This was a very professional, user friendly firm. The attorneys I worked with were very experienced, easy to work with and helpful. I was very happy with my experience of working with them. I got fair results.
I did not realize how expensive a divorce could be.
Professional and empathetic
I was very impressed by Holly's professionalism and empathy for my case. Before I worked with her I could barely focus on work and other parts of my life. Thanks to her hard work and dedication she really helped get me back on track. I truly appreciate her tenacity.
She made a terrible process seamless and easy
I was surprised by how caring and efficient she was. I am so pleased we were recommended to her. She made a terrible process seamless and easy. Thank you so much!
Always addressed my concerns with compassion. Didn't make me feel inadequate. Explained things in layman's terms so I could understand.
Some Calls not Returned
I really like the staff, I think the biggest element for me is the free anytime mentor, she was awesome. Some calls were not returned.
I sat down and interviewed Trisha, it was evident she has a great deal of legal knowledge. She discussed her prior experience and displayed her skills to be direct without being harsh or combative.
Dan was a big help in court!
She was professional and confident
Attentive and knowledgeable
Derek is very attentive and knowledgeable.
Flat rate fee is by far the best idea
The flat rate fee is by far the best idea for lawyers, especially when the case goes on longer than you would have hoped. My lawyer has always been upfront and honest. She is a great communicator, fair and very helpful. She never promised things that she didn't think we could get. I would highly recommend this law firm.
I have mixed feelings. I've had both good and bad experiences. I like my lawyer and at times I feel like my case really matters. Other times I feel like I'm forgotten about. I thought my case would've been done and resolved months ago and it's taking much longer than expected. Maybe that's normal but certainly not what I expected.
My experience involved an attorney that was less than reveling in all the facts.
I have ran my divorce all the way through appeals. It is in that process ommisions were made.
At a hearing my attorney of record admitted he never read the final judgment. Under the five day rule, that pretty much allows the opposing party to alter an in court agreement. Once the judge signs it, and because my attorney offered no objection it was a done deal.
In texting with the attorney post trial, it was reveale…
Smooth and Trustworthy so far
So far so good! It's early on in our time together and I hope it continues as smooth and trusting as it has.
Sterling Law helped me resolve my issues in court effeicently and effectively. I loved the fixed fee pricing and Dan was great at communicating throughout the process. Thanks.
I highly recommend her!
Trisha Festerling is a wonderful attorney!! She did an amazing job and I highly recommend her!!
Tremendous response time
When someone does an inquiry the response time is tremendous. I referred a friend and she was able to set something up. It was nice. In fact the best part was your office was not able to assist and referred her else where which was commendable. My friend was so happy with the all around experience.
Straight forward and honest
First time ever having to use an attorney, but they made the process as comfortable as possible, especially with all of the emotions that surround a custody and divorce case. They made every attempt to get back to me and keep me informed on a timely manner and did not disguise the truth of the matter at all, straight forward and honest with the facts of my case. I suggest at least meeting with them prior to hiring anyone else.
Patient and great communicator
Dan was very professional and easy to work with. He was patient and took the time to make sure that we understood each step of the process. It always felt like Dan was dedicated to our case!
I would recommend Meg
Meg communicated well, responded emails and voicemails in a timely manner, even while she was busy with other cases.
Dan delivered good results.
Your staff is friendly, kind and understanding! Trisha Festerling is wonderful, she is compassionate, and understanding but tough.
She did an amazing job
Highly recommended. Divorce is hard enough and trying to do it on your own is even harder. The price was more than fair and the service was excellent. I worked with Attorney Holly Mullin. She was very professional, detailed, and personable. She did an amazing job. All I had to do was get her the information she needed and Attorney Mullin and her team took care of the rest. She was always available if I had questions and communicated openly with me and my spouse through every step of the process. I hope to never have to go through the divorce process again because its very unpleasant but having a good attorney like Holly made it so much easier. Thank you Holly!
So far so good
So far everything has been going as expected. I think Katy has been great.
Great communication and availability
Had a family law case which was unfortunately pretty ugly but Albert gave me very good advice at every turn. Great communication and availability.
Someone's always available to answer my questions.
Customer service is excellent. By everyone in the office I come in contact with.
Experienced, organized, professional and extremely helpful
When I started the divorce I was so lost about everything but she was experienced, organized, professional and extremely helpful. She did not waste time and was easy to talk to thru the process. Would recommend her to others in a heart beat!
Need better communication
She's responsive and has a great attention to detail.
I have been very unhappy with the responsiveness as a whole
Thank you Attorney Festerling for caring
On the previous rating it only let me do 1 star. I wanted 5 stars. Thank you Attorney Festerling for caring and working as hard as you did!!!
She immediately responded to my emails when I had questions
When I was going through my divorce, I was so impressed with Holly's skills and knowledge. She is attentive, professional, and has a way of making a person feel completely at ease even when discussing sensitive issues. She immediately respondded to my emails when I had questions and is attentive to my concerns. Thanks Holly.
They made me feel comfortable
Katy and everyone at Sterling Law Offices helped made my divorce smooth, quick and painless. They made me feel comfortable with their knowledge and ability to get the job done. It made an already stressful and scary situation A LOT better! My whole experience and their upfront price makes them an easy recommendation to anyone who needs help with a divorce.
Has been a bit of a delay getting the process started. Do not understand what is taking the court so long. My attorney explained how the courts work, but it seems too long.
Friendly and helpful
Everyone in that office is very friendly and helpful I wish in my state we had a Chinese like those because they are outgoing they take the time to explain all your options I definitely would recommend them to the Wisconsin People
They are caring and compassionate.
This is a very emotional time for anyone going through this. They are caring and compassionate. they listen to your questions and concerns. You know that is not about the money when its a flat fee vs per hour fee. They have been outstanding to work with.
Need my docs
I've emailed her for copies of my ex's tax returns but haven't received.
Holly was excellent. Knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and brought results.
Compassionate and honest
Compassion and honest answers, Katy makes me comfortable and is insightful
The staff was a joy to work with. I highly the team and will choose them for future issues. Thanks for everything.
I felt a touch and I mean just a tiny bit of disappointment in the fact that the week before the final court date I felt like I was on an island being bombarded with paperwork and illustrations – half of which were variations on final scenarios. I wish I could have had a chance to discuss what they all meant before they were sent to me. This feeling had a lot to do with the fact that Katy had a trial the week before and she needed to focus on that. Not upset – it's an honest reality that happens. As a crazy work schedule funeral director I know exactly how the chaos feels and I am guilty of doing the same – priority is what and who is directly in front of me rather than who is up next week. Divorce sucks and it isn't easy and life goes on after. That was the biggest complaint that was really no ones fault. Katy was super awesome and met with me whenever I felt like I was drowning and needed clarification on issues. I would highly recommend sterling to anyone needing your services. All of the staff that I encountered was awesome. The biggest reason I scored the way I did was the feeling of being alone on a deserted island being smothered by paperwork that to me didn't make much sense because of all the feelings swirling around in the giant pool in my head and a personal love of the number 7…(yes I'm a dork – but it's honestly my lucky number). Lastly – I have to thank you both for everything that you ladies helped me with. I emailed Katy about a month after the finalization and told her that I was able to refinance the house and the girls and I are happier than we have ever been. And just to prove hell does freeze over – Erik and I have been getting along good and I've let go of All the shit that he has said and done before and after the divorce (yes that was a HUGE pill to swallow) but the girls need parents who can be civil and even a bit happy when around each other. They need happy parents who can even bring new partners around each other and the kids at the same time. Life is to short to hold grudges and it's such a waste of energy to hate the father of my girls – without him I wouldn't have them. I wish you and Katy all the best you two were amazing. And I'm still not upset about the transition from you to Katy's caseload. ???? Thank you for everything Becky Osse P.s. I would give you a 9 – it's just that I like the number 7 better so I used that…lol
He listens and is he cares
Dan Exner is trustworthy, he's honest, and he took the time to listen to my story. He's an excellent attorney and put forth a great amount of time and effort for my case. Thanks.
About Jeff Hughes
(also known as Jeffery Hughes, Jeff S Hughes, Jeffery Sterling Hughes)
"We operate Sterling Law daily with the conviction that we must empower clients enduring a family legal crisis, which are some of the most painful, bewildering moments of life."
When someone utters the word "divorce," specific images pop to mind. Expensive and never-ending bills, uncaring lawyers, and drawn out cases ending in heartache, to name just a few.
But why? Family law is supposed to be about serving people during some of the difficult moments of their life when they need a helping hand the most.
Jeff Hughes chose law as the platform to impact his community and the families in it. After working as a lawyer for many years, he saw that the status quo was broken, and radical changes had to be made.
As a co-founder of Sterling Law Offices, he's turned his focus to obliterating the archaic family law "old school" system.
First, and this may strike you as crazy radical - Jeff does not want you as a client of the firm. He would much rather live in a world where families never broke apart. Sadly, that is not reality. The truth is that good, loving people find themselves in a family legal crisis.
Consequently, Jeff's core belief is simple: "When people in my community find themselves in a family legal crisis, we desperately want to serve them. The need us. So, we are obsessed with creating a modern firm that focuses on them and their families. I have this unshakable conviction, that if we build a client-centered firm, we will be wildly successful. If we empower clients, we will dominate."
Second, according to Jeff, "the primary way family law is practiced today should be blown up." It starts with "ridiculous hourly billing. It just kills me that lawyers ask clients to give them their credit card or a blank check with no assurance as to what their final bill will be. We have destroyed and buried hourly billing - R.I.P. If we can't tell the client what their fees will be up front, we don't accept their money."
Third, Jeff has an incurable obsession with focusing every available firm resource on being amazing at one thing - family law. "Look, if my leg is broken, the last thing I am going to do is see a cardiologist or some general practice doc. I'm going straight to an orthopedic who specializes on legs. I just think clients need to be able to come to a firm and have confidence that their lawyer is focused 100% on family law, not dabbling in real estate one minute and criminal law the next."
Fourth, Jeff feels the prevailing attitude of family lawyers is backward. "I have this unpopular belief in my profession. We all say that we put clients first. That is cliché and, for the most part, is absolute baloney. I think most lawyers actually put themselves first. They care far more about what other lawyers think of them than what clients think of them. That is asinine. This is why Sterling surveys every client multiple times during our representation. I know most lawyers are scared to know the truth--that is why so few lawyers actually ask their client for feedback."
Finally, (Jeff insisted that we put this quote on the website): "There is a reason why we are dominating the state in family law in just a few years. There is no firm that is even close to us. It is because we are maniacal about the client's needs, wants and desires. We are winning because we put clients first, and the market is voting us to the front of the pack. Every single person going through a family legal crisis deserves to know about Sterling Law."
Outside of his career, Jeff and Winona get to love on their five boys and one girl. The Hughes family enjoys traveling to create as many special memories as possible. He is also a voracious reader, downhill skier, ping pong player, and loves, loves fishing on the Chippewa Flowage in Hayward, WI.
Jeff got his B.A. degree in history from Bob Jones University in 1994. He went on to earn his law degree (J.D) from Southern Illinois University School of Law in 1997.
After law school, Jeff became a litigating attorney at a Wisconsin law firm, McLario, Helm & Bertling S.C. before founding Sterling Law Offices. Passionate about leadership development and business, Jeff is also the founder of several other successful businesses in Menomonee Falls.

"After my first meeting with Attorney Festerling it was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. I have complete confidence in her ability and knowledge. She is honest with me and returns calls. She's an intelligent woman, who includes you in the process. You're never in the dark. Sterling also has a payment process that's reasonable. I would recommend this office."
