Joel, a Family Client

Legal planning for a special needs child From the moment I met Ms Hines I felt very comfortable. I knew she got it. She explained everything to me about obtaining guardianship for my child. She kept in contact with me over the process that took six months. She was accessable for any questions that I might have. I would highly recommend her. ”
