"I cannot possibly explain how happy I am with my choice to have Charlotte Ruble and Lauren Devine help me with my recent family law case. I think even they would agree, it was very unusual and unnecessarily antagonistic. Charlotte and Lauren were extremely responsive to me and my litany of questions. Most importantly though, I felt as though they were invested. That they truly cared about me and what was best for me and my son. That made it so easy to trust them through this long and difficult process. Again, I can't say enough good things about both of them and the entire team that worked with them. Even their paralegal felt invested in my case...like I wasn't just another case. I'm so grateful to everyone there and all they did for me."
