This law office is amazing, Miss Fowler is the best at what she does, I would recommend this legal office to anyone! If you need help go here! And the receptionist is just wonderful!
Lindsey Fowler was my divorce attorney through the worst time of my life. She gave me honest advice and excellent feedback. Her staff is top-notch as well. Everyone always returned phone calls, emails, and answered my questions. I cannot give her enough stars!
Will be eternally grateful to this law firm for helping my elderly father through a very difficult time in his life. After a string of traumatic events, (and a near death experience), my father now finds himself in a difficult separation with his estranged wife. Nothing has been easy with this separation and both Lindsay and Kim have been incredibly supportive and empathetic to his situation. Can’t thank them enough for their patience and professionalism with this difficult case.
Lindsay Fowler handled my divorce and protected the well being of myself for years to come. I am ever so grateful to her for her insight down the road for me in my settlement. She had my best interest at heart. Ms. Fowler thought of everything in an extremely stressful and difficult time for me. Thank you Ms. Fowler!!! If there were 10 stars, I would give her a 10 star rating!! A person just comes out ahead with Ms. Fowler as their attorney!
My attorney Lindsay was wonderful, she was on time, always returned my calls/email. She was to the point and explained things so I can understand the legal language. I felt like she had my back when no one did. She and her legal secretary made it as easy as possible given the situation.
Ms. Fowler has helped me with child custody issues. Navigating the court process with her felt like a partnership. She really cared about getting a positive outcome for me and my family and she absolutely delivered. I would definitely seek her services in the future if I need a competent attorney.
Smart, thoughtful, attentive, kind, and professional. Lindsey Fowler and her team guided us through a very stressful, emotional legal matter with integrity, awareness and discussions of all possible outcomes as well as the pros and cons of choices we needed to make. It was a bit scary to trust our family’s future and follow advice that was unfamiliar, even when it was a good choice. I am grateful for the superb work for us, as well as the continued support if we have questions.
I highly recommend Lindsey Fowler and this whole team to anyone needing a strong legal representative and caring advocate in their corner.
If I could give more stars. I would. Lindsay became my attorney in the worst part of my life. With the charges I was facing my sentencing could have been far worse. But she helped me have the opportunity to have my charges reduced in 3 years if I complied with the courts requirements. And I did just that. 2 1/2 years later, I contacted Lindsay through her amazing assistant Kim to see if we could get the charges reduced 6 months early. And we did it. I couldn’t believe it. The hard work, effort and compassion that these women showed me is something I will cherish for the rest of my life. I am forever grateful. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to be on my side.
