"Gabriela helped with everything. She took the struggle off my shoulders by translating my MOU into Chicago court terms, appearing in court for me, being firm but kind to my son’s mother, and getting the job done in a timely manner. I was hesitant to start the process but Gabriela demonstrated honesty and integrity throughout the process. Would recommend 100 percent." - Ben S.view client reviews
