      "Without a doubt, I'd recommend Carissa and her paralegal, Ashley!"

      When I first began to modify my child custody case, a protection order was already in place. As there were many moving parts to the court hearings and other proceedings, I decided I required legal representation. Carissa and I spoke, and I hired her right away. There weren't many days left before my court appearance. Carissa and her team worked so hard and fast to have everything in order for the hearing. In court, Carissa was an absolute rock star. I ultimately received all I requested, which in turn guaranteed the safety of my child. My inquiries were promptly answered by Carissa and her colleagues, who were also very responsive. Without a doubt, I'd recommend Carissa and her paralegal, Ashley!

      "We are grateful for Carissa and her professionalism."

      We had the pleasure of working with Carissa on our adoption. Our situation was more complicated and was not a straightforward adoption. Carissa rose to the challenge and navigated us through this difficult process. Carissa is knowledgeable, responsive, has great listening skills, and was very upfront with us with the situation we were facing. Carissa provided sound legal advice on how we needed to proceed and consistently advocated for our family. We are grateful for Carissa and her professionalism and would highly recommend her.

      "Carissa did an amazing job helping me sort through my court case."

      Carissa did an amazing job helping me sort through my court case. I am very thankful for her support, knowledge of the legal system, and her time spent throughout my emotional roller coaster and frivolous divorce. She maintained a level head (enough for both of us) for the entire 5 months it took to finalize the case. A huge thank you to Carissa and Camille Borge Law for helping me fight that bump in the road.

      "They are exactly what I would hope for in a professional law team."

      I recently used Carissa Galvan-Crews for some work only a skilled attorney could handle. I found her through an online search, and I am so glad I decided to use her. What I thought would take months and months to handle only took a little less than 2 months from start to finish. The outcome of my case was extremely better than I could've ever imagined. I knew from her initial conversation with me that she was knowledgeable in every aspect of this type of case, just based upon how well she answered my million questions I had for her, which of course put me at total ease from the start. I would absolutely recommend her to any of my friends/family. I actually already have. I couldn't thank her enough and her staff for how well everything was handled, they were all very professional and efficient. They are exactly what I would hope for in a professional law team, I can't say enough good things about them all.

      "So incredibly grateful for Camille, Carissa, and the Paralegals at this firm."

      So incredibly grateful for Camille, Carissa, and the Paralegals at this firm for taking on my case and helping me throughout the past few months. I was truly struggling because of the amount of abuse my ex-husband put me through and I was not sure how I'd make it through it. I honestly was terrified to begin the process of divorcing, because it seemed so intimidating. They made it extremely simple, which truly allowed me to heal more as I didn't have to worry about it all on my own. You have no idea the amount of relief I have now that the process is over and I'm safe. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

      "I highly recommend them to family and friends."

      When I was searching for an adoption attorney, I had called several places. This was the only office where I actually spoke directly to the attorney and not a secretary about what I needed help with. Adoption is a long process, but I was kept well-informed the whole way through. I really enjoyed working with this office, and would highly recommend them to family and friends.
