Featured Client Review:
Attorney Amanda DuBois is why my children finally have their father in their lives in a meaningful way. The team there are experts, reasonably priced, and very responsive. I am not sure I would have been successful had Amanda and her team not stood by my side through a nightmare of a divorce.
The sad fact is that when it comes to family law in Washington state, the system is a “pro-mother” system. As a practical matter, Dads have a tougher burden when trying to share the parenting responsibility for a variety of reasons. If you are facing a spouse who is trying to deny you meaningful time with your children, do not take it lightly. Call DuBois Law.
My ex-spouse is a billionaire’s only child who basically tried to “buy” the children away from me. She used every dirty trick in the book, coupled with an incredibly aggressive divorce attorney to try and deplete my resources and force me to give up. She tried to make the process as painful as possible by making all sorts of false and distorted allegations, taking unnecessary depositions, and having a private investigator follow me around. It was a well funded full-court press. During this, she made every effort to try and keep the children from their father.
Amanda DuBois was able to carefully cut through the rhetoric and clarify the real truth to the parenting evaluator, arbitrator and the judge. At the end of the day, through Amanda’s advocacy, all of these parties took my side. The final ruling was a complete victory and can’t think of any area where I didn’t win outright.
Today, I have a wonderful relationship with my children and lots of time to be there for them. It was the best money I ever spent. If you find yourself getting into an adversarial litigation scenario, you really should call them. You won’t regret it. Your children are just too important not to – and they need you in their lives.
RB Dunn, Seattle
My situation was a very stressful one and I felt like Desirée truly gave my case her full attention and she asked great questions so that she could get the best results. Also she worked hard on my case and I felt like her attention to detail was an asset in the drafting process. There can be lots of emotions dealing with the ex-husband and she was able to help me focus on the necessary points and not stray. I really appreciate that. She also was available to answer questions and if she wasn’t, she always called back. If you need a hard working attorney who pays attention to details and helps you stay on track , I highly recommend Desirée Good and DuBois Cary Law Group.
Monica Cary and her team represented me through an extremely contentious year long divorce. Her knowledge of the law, ability to deal with difficult situations/people, and network of professionals allowed me to propel through the process smoothly. Her skills were complimented by the amazing compassion she has for her clients. During the difficult and emotional rollercoaster of a divorce, Monica was able to provide me with a sense of comfort and security as I entered into a new phase of life. She met every challenge head on while being considerate of my work hours/family commitments and ability to meet and strategize. Monica was surrounded by a talented staff and partner/attorneys who also embraced me during this process. She became and remains a true confident. I am forever grateful and highly recommend Monica Cary and The DuBois Cary Law Firm.
~DCLG Client on Avvo (February, 2017)
None of us believes we will travel this path. It is unthinkable, shameful. The ultimate failure. Especially in certain polite circles, where we are told to make great choices and live a charmed life. But sometimes that’s not how it goes. And even after trying to make it go that way or convince yourself and others that you can, this is where you land.
It can be incredibly painful to uncouple. It requires telling yourself the truth. And then undoing everything you spent the first part of your life doing.
I was at this place two years ago and was lucky enough to fall into the hands of Monica Cary, who represented me as my divorce attorney.
I’ll never forget our first meeting. I knew almost instantly I would be in safe hands. Monica got to know my case through conversation, allowing me to guide it, placing the power of sharing information back into my hands. And that set the tone for the next 14 months.
There were ups and downs on the road we traveled. And Monica knew when it was time to exercise a sharp hand, be exacting, and ensure the course was well carved. Equally as important, she knew when to soften the experience by addressing my hurt and shock, as the reality began to set. Those instincts cannot be taught. Monica has them and operates from them in her work.
I am forever grateful to her and her well-coordinated team. I was in their care and, as a result, landed firmly on my feet.
~DCLG Client on Avvo (February, 2017)
Michelle Fontenot is second to none. My wife and I had to deal very unexpectedly with what amounted to completely unfounded and untrue allegations of possible child abuse. The doctor’s exam only revealed healed mosquito bites. The real abuse was from the invasion of privacy that subsequently occurred as the CPS rep conducted a series of questioning that greatly upset our kids. It was amazing to us to see just how easy it is to totally disrupt a family by just picking up the phone. The pain and anguish our family was put through needed a firm and legal response. That’s where attorney Michelle Fontenot came in. She met our kids and got to know our family. Her knowledge of child therapy/emotional issues is amazing. She also completely understands the law and psychology schools operate under. I can not express how glad we were to have Michelle in our corner. We recommend her 100% whole heartedly! Thank you Michelle.
~DCLG Client on Avvo (April, 2016)
An excellent attorney. Michelle Fontenot recently helped me through a tricky and lengthy divorce. It was a complex case. Not only was it interstate (WA and NY) involving assets both in the US and UK, but also involved grappling with the peculiarities of negotiating with an ex-spouse who worked for an international institution with its own legal requirements. Michelle was fantastic throughout – as was her paralegal. Her tenacity, skill and [personality] – made her the perfect choice to represent me. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
~Missy on Avvo (March, 2016)
The best legal team ever. They love their clients️ too. Thank you Dubois Cary Law Group for all your support and guidance. Monica Cary, and Michelle Fontenot are outstanding human beings and attorneys. The law firm has the friendliest and most efficient staff who genuinely care and offer world class assistance. Thank you Jason and Eldina for always taking the time for us.
Amanda, I can’t begin to thank you enough for what you’ve done for me. I’m overwhelmed by your determination & performance… Holly, thank you for all that you’ve done in keeping me informed on what was happening and keeping me in line. I’m sure I tested your organizational skills a few times to say the least.

The legal dispute was surrounding necessary revisions to the parenting plan, and my ex-wife was completely disregarding the needs and best interests of our children. Amanda Dubois was warm, compassionate and concerned as we sorted through the issues and assessed pragmatically what courses of action were viable and aligned with my goals for the kids. While I doubt that anyone ever gets all that they want from litigation, Amanda helped ensure that the crucial items of business were carried through to the finished agreement. Her firm is caring, professional and very effective–I recommend her!
I’m extremely glad I sought out DuBois Cary when I started my divorce. Facing an unusual case – dealing with a spouse in a different state, who worked for an international organization – Michelle Fontenot was fantastic. Alongside her excellent paralegal, Jason Evans, she demonstrated tenacity, fairness and compassion. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her in the future.
When I knew I was headed for divorce, I wanted someone who would keep my son’s interests as top priority, keep the process out of the courtroom (but be prepared for it if necessary), and stay as amicable as possible. Amanda DuBois was a perfect match for my needs. She guided me through the detailed process with respect, patience and a good dose of humor. She confidently counseled me as to how the court would respond to my wants/needs (overreach vs. undervalue) and provided me with clear and often creative ways to get to an end result I felt good about. I highly recommend Amanda and her team.
We came to DuBois Cary in search of a qualified attorney with experience in 3rd party custody when we were seeking emergency custody of our 18 month old grandchild. After having an in depth consult with Lucia (Levias) we knew she was the one who could help us. She was compassionate, knowledgeable and very straightforward with this very delicate,serious matter. Everything was presented to us in a professional, clear manner with excellent help by the paralegals. In a only a few months we had full legal permanent custody of our grandchild, giving us comfort and peace of mind.
I am a 34yr old male and am extremely proud to say thanks to Michelle Fontenot and Jason Evans of the DuBois Cary Law Group I have full parental rights and time w/ my 2yr old son. Michelle is extremely professional, caring, and an excellent teacher in guiding me through this horrible legal process. Both Michelle and Jason made the process that much easier to deal with the stress involved. Both of them were there for me the entire process, promptly answering emails, phone calls or even just needing someone to vent to. I feel like I owe Michelle and Jason my life for the time they had invested into my family. I will be paying them for years to come but you cannot price on your child’s safety and knowing their in the best hands possible. The family law process is stressful, horrible, emotionally straining – something i wouldn’t wish upon my worst enemy, but having Michelle and Jason’s guidance through it made it that much easier. Her strategic plan of attack, process of approaching issues and making sure everything is on time, extremely professional. Also dealt with the financing dept Terry, again awesome person. Understanding what’s going on and spending her time to talk with me not only about finances but about how my son is doing throughout the process, very nice and understanding, caring person. I can go on for hrs, bottom line if you’re looking for legal assistance dealing with family law issue definitely contact Michelle Fontenot. Out of all the lawyers I contacted in the beginning Michelle was the only person who seemed to actually care and not just wanted to take my money. Michelle and Jason and whole DuBois Cary Law Group – thank you from me and my son.
Not enough stars to give this place! My review is for Lucia and Tanya. I’m a single father who was fighting for custody of my son. The time and work that Lucia and Tanya put into my case was extensive. I think,we were in and out of,court for about a year. As you May know,it’s not easy for a father to get custody here in Washington but Lucia is great. I can’t say enough great things about her and Tanya and although it is on the expensive side, who can name a price for the custody of their child? I’ll be paying them the rest of my,life but,I’ll also have my son for the rest of my,life too. Don’t look anywhere else for an attorney, this is where your suppose to go.
~Happy Client, Seattle
Lucia Levias and Tania Selden were tremendously helpful and extremely patient with me. The divorce went on for a year and a half. I was emotionally and financially drained. Lucia and Tania felt like a friend during the most trying times of my life and yet very professional in negotiating and fighting for me. I highly recommend Lucia and Tania. They are an excellent team. You will be in great hands.
Professional, reliable and trustworthy with more experience than meets the eye. Michelle represented me through an unfortunate and unusual situation involving family law that spanned more than 8 months. It involved a petition for a protection order and a difficult divorce. During that time, I worked with her regularly, each month, if each week. I was very impressed with her professionalism. She is ultra-reliable and her judgment proved to be very keen. Besides planning and preparing for my case, there were several on-the-spot moments where she proved to think very quickly on her feet and offer what turned-out to be very sound advice. She is very good at what she does and responds quickly to clients’ needs. I have no real critiques. It was hard to select a family law lawyer out of nowhere when I needed one. A friend recommended the DuBois Cary firm and attorney Michelle Fontenot, and paralegal, Jason Evans, were teamed with me. They represent an ideal legal team in my opinion. Additionally, while the scores on this site suggest that Michelle lacks a little in experience, her career before becoming an attorney was one where she saw a very different, but equally important, side family law. Her experience in this field is deeper than it appears and perhaps more well-rounded than that of most other family law attorneys. I really felt secure with her.
~Family Client on Avvo (June, 2014)
I came to DuBois Cary when my divorce dragged on for well over a year. My ex would not give up his belief that he was due 70% of my retirement after a very short marriage. Denise Hansen explained the law to me; helped me find a very good mediator; and best of all, helped alleviate the crushing stress I was under. I kept my retirement, and I’m finally divorced. I highly recommend Denise and Dubois Cary Law Group for wonderful care, and kindness when you need it most.
The lawsuit began over three and a half years ago. The issue was whether our relationship qualified as a Committed Intimate Relationship under Washington law. Not only was it emotionally upsetting, but without their help I don’t know what I would have done. Amanda and her team at DuBois Cary walked me through the whole process and I don’t know what I would have done without their support. With their tenacity, we were able to get a very positive result at trial. They were so friendly and honest. I would recommend them to anyone.
~Happy Single Client
Amanda DuBois was instrumental in my successful divorce. She help me navigate these challenging times as my divorce involved 3 beautiful children after a 15 year-long long marriage. Her advice went beyond the simple legal aspects of a divorce. I highly recommend the team of the DuBois Cary Law Group.
My situation was difficult as I was dealing with some relatives who were attempting to take custody of my daughter from me based on false accusations, etc…while we were dealing with family issues. Michelle Fontonot, my attorney helped me to keep focused on what was important, while defending me and my rights as a parent in court. She was very knowledgeable of the law, well prepared, professional and respectful to all parties involved. Jason, her paralegal spent many hours helping me to prepare my paperwork. The office staff were very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Michelle and The Dubois Cary Law Group to anyone needing a good family law lawyer. Because of their efforts I am able to see and be involved in my child’s life. Thank You!
~E. Huff Jr.
I Highly recommend Dubois Cary Law group to anyone that needs a competent and professional attorney. Specially Lucia Levias who was able to help me through an extremely complicated international custody battle. I would recommend her with no hesitation, she was compassionate, knowledgeable and professional. She led me through a very difficult situation and I will always be grateful to her and her team.
The Dubois Cary Law group was very supportive. Corey the Paralegal was incredible! For the complexity of my divorce they kept my interests at heart! Great supportive team !
I retained DuBois Cary law firm to assist in my divorce. I worked with Lucias Levias and I found her to be smart, empathetic, level-headed and able to answer all my questions as well as guide me through the process. My ex-spouse and I settled before our court date and Lucias and her paralegal were able to integrate input from both of us to help us reach a satisfactory conclusion.
I just went through a divorce of a long time marriage. A friend recommended that I call the DuBois Cary Law Group. Monica Cary started the process and Lucia Levias took me through the rest of the process. It was very stressful but everybody at the DuBois Cary Law Group were amazing. I would highly recommend the DuBois Cary Law Group if you need to go through the divorce process
I highly recommend DuBois Cary after going through a very complicated divorce with complex custody issues. Lucia Levias and the team were extremely diligent and thoughtful in going through the numerous complications and giving good sound direction
I used them for my dissolution and they were very professional and got everything in order with no problems! They were also very communicative and I appreciated their effort!
Divorces are rarely “easy”, but I am pleased to report that with the positive support of Amanda DuBois and the whole team at DuBois Cary Law Group, I found this major ordeal in my life was so much easier than I could have anticipated. Thank you!
~ Jane W.
Nothing but praise for the dedication and ability of Lucia and her team. Lucia proved herself a very intelligent and capable jurist in her superior handling of my very difficult and highly contentious case. She very clearly explained to me the legal procedures to keep me fully informed throughout the case. It was a major case for me and I was very nervous, but Lucia was always available by phone. She was very empathetic to the anxieties the case was building in me. I would, without hesitation, recommend her to anyone.
~Family Law Client
Monica worked with my elderly father and helped him through a difficult and unwanted divorce. She was very compassionate and sensitive to his situation and absolutely understood all the variables and players involved. She recommended the best course of action while continally engaging Dad to be sure he understood and was in agreement with the plan. She was respectful of budget concerns at all times. She is so warm, caring, personable, unassuming and SMART. I can’t recommend her highly enough! I am so grateful to her for all she did for my father.
~L. Richmond, Seattle
Thank you very, very much for all you did to help during the past two years! We couldn’t have managed without you and all of your support. Your team is number one in family law. I interviewed the top 4 family law groups. Amanda you were the only one that believed that “honesty is the best policy” and we won the case. Dubois Law group cared for me and my child as their clients. Amanda provided stellar service for over 2 (two) years, keeping my child safe. It was a complex and highly litigated case. Amanda and her associates will give you the best legal representation. They will be your guide and trusted resource.
~Alex D. Seattle
Amanda and associates were amazing. During a very painful divorce process, not only was Amanda wonderful, so were her colleagues. She was a therapist/friend/lawyer all wrapped up into one. If it was not for this law group, I am not sure I would have made it through. On top of this, she has helped me network, only to aid me in my career! Highly recommended!!
~Elizabeth S., Seattle
I had an excellent experience with the DuBois Cary Law Group. They were very responsive, kind, and had excellent attention to detail. I had a complicated divorce and was very disappointed with my initial attorney, who left me with a mediation agreement that was incomplete, and failed to adequately address several important issues. Discussions were sidetracked, adversarial and simply not making progress.
Amanda DuBois was able to step in and successfully help me resolve these issues and reach settlement in a very timely and effective manner. She is very good at prioritizing important issues without losing site of details or wasting valuable time and money. Ms DuBois was able to clearly communicate and educate me, so that I stayed on track, avoided getting stuck, and kept the big picture in mind. The DuBois Cary Group did a fantastic job rescuing a bad situation, helping to complete the final settlement, and assisting me with the details that arose in the months following settlement. I give them my highest recommendation.
~Douglas G., Seattle
A year plus of legal maneuvering and now I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. The Dubois Cary Law Firm was referred by another reputable Seattle law firm as “a firm with heart and drive”. I came to Amanda Dubois and her team with what seemed like a pretty straightforward case of people needing to separate and move on. I was looking for someone who would help guide me through the divorce system without losing sight of what was truly important to me —the children. Amanda did just that. As time progressed and the case presented itself, it became apparent that this wasn’t such a straightforward case at all. The Dubois Cary Law Firm rose to the challenge in every instance. Amanda is very well-versed in family law and was a wealth of information. They weren’t afraid to go beyond their physical space or expertise to bring in consultants to advise on the case when it moved beyond family law. I really appreciated that they valued me as a client (and person) and weren’t just focused on the billable hourly they could have garnered had they kept it all in house. The people that they brought in to consult were nothing less than amazingly sharp and talented in their respective areas. Amanda built a wonderful team of experts that kept their eye on the ball, thought out of the box and kept me grounded. Their talents complimented Amanda’s skillset and that of her team. I would recommend The Dubois Cary Law group to anyone who has their family as their top priority. They lead with heart and soul and that was the perfect fit for me. I am grateful for their expertise in what I would say was one of the lowest periods of my life. Unfortunately, we ended up in trial. It was a pretty complex legal issue… we won!
I spent several weeks researching law firms who are experienced in GLBT family matters. After much consideration and calling around, I opted to use the team at DuBois Cary in divorcing from my partner. Lucia Levias is one of the most professional, thorough, and intelligent attorneys I have worked with in a long time. It was difficult finding an attorney who practices in Pierce County and is familiar with the complexities of GLBT family law. She and the team at DuBois Cary were professional, prompt, and helpful in addressing any questions or concerns I had. A huge thank you to them for shepherding me through this process.
~Happy Client, Seattle
One of the best decisions I ever made was choosing Amanda DuBois and Monica Cary to represent me in my divorce. Legally, they’re the tops. They are absolutely knowledgeable in all the relevant law. They are so thoroughly experienced with every person and every process I encountered during my divorce that their advice was unfailingly sound. Their expertise brought me invaluable peace at a time of maximum stress, and, most important, led to the wonderful outcome in my difficult case. I came to them in a state of shock over my divorce. Somehow, they got me doing the things I needed to do to protect myself. They know when to smile, and when to pull out the Kleenex. They struck a perfect balance between respecting my wishes to collaborate in an amicable settlement, and, as needed, advocating fiercely for my interests. They will fight like crazy for you if circumstances require it, but they do everything possible to avoid unnecessary conflict. Such versatility is rare. They were always available to me with sound advice at odd hours. Amanda, Monica, paralegal Corey Bondurant, and everyone in the office – from the front desk to the back office – are deeply compassionate, sensitive people who always do what they can to make the experience of divorce as bearable as possible. Their clients are people, not cases. Thank heaven that people like Amanda, Monica, and Corey were on this earth when I needed them most.
~Happy Client, Seattle
The team at DuBois Cary was amazing when I need assistance in creating a separation from my partner. I needed support fast and furious. Lucia Levias was not only professional in helping me on the legal part but she has a huge heart and I felt like she truly cared about my well being. This is a firm that I would recommend any day of the week to any couple, same-sex or heterosexual, to contact for support in a separation.
~Happy Client, Seattle
This firm helped me with my divorce and I received wonderful, caring and highly responsive help from Amanda DuBois and her staff. I cannot recommend this firm highly enough.
~Elizabeth M., Seattle
I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers. Amanda and team held my hand through a very very difficult divorce. She out-lawyered opposing counsel every step of the way. She has excellent relationships with and is highly respected by mediators and judges. She became a good friend, confidant and advisor. While I am glad to no longer have her on “speed dial,” I am glad to have worked with her and work out the best settlement possible.
~Happy Client, Seattle

Amanda and her team were wonderful. I went through a tough divorce (well, what divorce is not hard) and they were there every step of the way. I felt like they were my “home away from home”. I got a therapist/friend/lawyer all wrapped up into one!
~Happy Client, Seattle
We arrived at the Du Bois Cary office in September of 2011. We met with Monica Cary and she was such a great listener. She spent a long time hearing the particulars of the physical difficulties my mom was experiencing since being married at 80 years old. She is now 86. We had seen one other attorney but Monica reviewed the information and gave us a plan to get mom into a safer living situation. Monica communicated an amicable solution that resulted in a new living arrangement for my mom and she and her husband are getting along better than ever. Monica represented her perfectly. We could not be more pleased with the outcome. We have become friends with the entire staff at the DuBois Cary group.
~ David, Seattle
I would like to extend my sincere gratitude for the outstanding support provided in regards to my dissolution. You have always quickly and efficiently demonstrated your knowledge in your field; as well as, your motivation to assist in any items necessary.
Your actions illustrate Dubois Law desires to assist the customer.Thank you for all your assistance. It has been a pleasure to work with you and by extend with Dubois Law.
Monica is excellent, I highly recommend her. Monica worked with my elderly father and helped him through a difficult and unwanted divorce. She was very compassionate and sensitive to his situation and absolutely understood all the variables and players involved. She recommended the best course of action while continually engaging Dad to be sure he understood and was in agreement with the plan. She was respectful of budget concerns at all times. She is so warm, caring, personable, unassuming and SMART. I can’t recommend her highly enough! I am so grateful to her for all she did for my father.
~Divorce Client on Avvo (November, 2013)
Monica helped me get custody of my son when his mother relocated across the country. Many people told me I didn’t have a chance to get custody as a single father in the state of Washington but Monica helped prove them wrong. I am grateful all that Monica and the staff at DuBois has done for my family.
This review is for the Law Office of Ms. Amanda DuBois of Seattle. Anybody who gave you 1 or 2 stars likely hasn’t worked with you in any sustained, meaningful way.
Just got done with a very big, very long case with Amanda as lead counsel. It was complex, personal, and nobody knew what the outcome might be. I got the chance to deal with Amanda on a daily basis, and got to see how she worked. She came highly recommended–and she lived up to her reputation. I got to see her work through the mediation process, then actually got to see how her mind worked in trial. While the opposing counsel also has a good reputation in Seattle, it is safe to say, Amanda dominated. She is a bulldog–but she did not upset the judge and she strategically let the opposing counsel hang himself–very smart, very subtle.
I highly recommend Amanda for her professionalism, responsiveness (responds to emails/texts/calls 24×7), her thought process, her willingness to really peel back the onion, and, more than anything, her results. We won the case–and it could have gone either way. Thank you Amanda.
~Paul C., Palo Alto, CA
The DuBois Cary Law Firm helped me during one of the worst and hardest transitions of my life. They were kind, compassionate and fought hard for me. They were very concerned with the needs of my children.
I would recommend the DuBois Cary Law Group team to anyone going through a family law issue.
~Douglas C. Seattle
I am very pleased with the Dubois Cary Law Group for taking my divorce over mid process and getting the job done.
~Tiffany M., Seattle
I am a divorced mom with two young boys. I recently decided I had delayed putting my affairs in order for far too long. Lawyer Monica Cary came highly recommended by a close friend, so I made an appointment to meet with her in person. Monica and her staff were warm and professional and made me feel comfortable and informed. They answered all my questions to my [satisfaction] and put together a very thorough packet of documents that will encompass all of my future needs in regard to my estate planning. I now have great peace of mind knowing this is all complete and my and my sons futures are secure.
~Heidi on Avvo (June 2013)
Monica was a lifesaver when I most needed a steady voice and knowledgeable guidance through my divorce. From the time my ex-wife and I decided to separate to the final dissolution settlement, Monica always catered her level of help in my case to what I needed, while keeping me informed of legal necessities and options. Occasionally, throughout the divorce process, when I felt like I was at a legal disadvantage relative to my ex, Monica would point out opportunities where I could gain leverage. The truth is, good legal help isn’t cheap, but Monica always kept my budget in mind and gave me choices to best use my money. She was well worth it. Not only was Monica a great choice for my legal representation, but everyone in her office, from the paralegals to the partners, were always gracious and helpful.
~David P., Seattle
Compassionate legal care at a trying time. I heartily recommend Lucia and HAVE referred friends and colleagues in the past knowing that she will provide them with the best service and advice. Lucia was able to help me through my tricky interstate custody and child support battle. I am thankful I could rely on Lucia at what was an extremely emotionally exhausting time for me and get the best result for my children. No problem was to much for her!
~Wendy on Avvo (April, 2013)
Excellent Lawyer. Working with Lucia took a lot of stress and confusion out of the divorce process. She and her team were very responsive, compassionate, calming and knowledgeable. She worked incredibly well with everyone involved, while strongly representing my and my son’s interests. I would highly recommend Lucia to anyone who needs an advocate in family law.
~Emily on Avvo (April, 2013)
Caring and competent attorney. Lucia provided me with thoughtful legal advice which helped me greatly. She led me through a very difficult situation which ended in the best case scenario for me and my family.
~Chris on Avvo (April, 2013)
I had a nightmarish divorce case that went on for a year and ended up with a week-long(!) court trial. My ex-wife went with a big-shot downtown lawyer who promised her the sun, the moon, and the whole sky. I went with DuBois Cary. And, boy, was it a right choice! I knew right away that I did not want big-shot lawyers because to them you are just a stream of billable hours, they could care less about you, and I wanted somebody who cared about me and what I was going through. So I browsed the web sites of divorce attorneys, not seeing quite what I wanted, until I came across the web site of DuBois Cary. On some deep intuitive level I knew that this was it. I was not mistaken. I got started with Monica but then she had to take a maternity leave and I worked with Amanda and Lucia. They were wonderful. Through 2 parenting evaluations that my ex-wife forced on me, through endless allegations that I had to fight, they stood by my side both professionally and personally. When they say about themselves “compassionate legal representation”, they mean it. They were my counsel, they were my support system. They encouraged me through my darkest hours. We went to trial and I got everything I wanted in my parenting plan against all the odds. I could not have done it without them. My representation turned out to be much more thorough and professional than that of my ex-wife, and they were compassionate, too! I doubt that my ex-wife’s attorney was checking in on her at nights or on weekends just to see how she was holding up. Amanda and Lucia were. It’s been almost 2 years since my divorce was finalized and we still keep in touch, they always want to know how my daughter and I are doing, what’s happening in our lives. How many attorneys do that? Top-notch professionals and caring people. I highly recommend them.
