Ms Kirk was my attorney in a very high conflict and emotional divorce case. She and her staff gave nothing but outstanding, honest legal advice and were in my opinion among the highest standard of professional representation. She had the best interested of my children and our future in her view at all times and I am absolutely grateful for her professionalism, the time that she invested in ensuring that my case was well thought out and defended and the compassion she showed for my family during one of the most difficult times of my life. I highly recommend her for anyone that is considering such a difficult decision.

Sylvia has been my acting attorney representing my ugly divorce since 2007. She is very honest and up front with everything she does. Throughout this divorce she has won many issues on my behalf; as well as, two other separate issues we had to go to court on because of this ugly divorce! Sylvia won them too! :-) If your looking for a hard working, honest, and very up front attorney; Sylvia will roll up her sleeves for you, and her hard working staff will get the job done for you!

Sylvia was the 3rd attorney I interviewed to help me navigate though a sticky divorce, and I knew within the first 5 minutes of that interview that she was the one who could do the best job while looking out for my best interests. She is a no-nonsense, straight shooter who is honest, factual and a wealth of knowledge. Along with her paralegal Andrea, they are both prompt with relaying information and communication. Because of my exception experience with Sylvia, I have recommended her to others who were let down by their current legal team. She does not disappoint!
