Ashley Keil has over 12 years of experience as a paralegal and has a dedication to helping her clients move forward. She reflected, “I have learned to be sympathetic and caring to my clients when they need someone in their corner.  If that’s all I can do to help them move forward during one of the hardest times in their lives, it’s the least I can do.  It’s important that they feel we have their back and I make sure they know we do every day.”

Office Manager and paralegal, Nancy Baker, has an amazing eye for detail. When coupled with her experience in the legal field she has the ability to know exactly what a client requires. “Some need someone to tell them what to do; some need someone to be stern; others need to be comforted, and some just need to talk. This requires changing hats throughout the day depending on each client’s needs. We seek to ensure this difficult part of their life will be handled efficiently and in their best interests.”

“I strive to be available as a point of contact for our clients whenever they call” explained, Liene Hawkins. Since 2003, Liene has used her diligent and supportive character to the benefit of her clients and coworkers. “Family law issues are quickly changing and can be mentally strenuous for our clients, so I know how important it is to our clients to be able to reach us when they are in need.”
