Kane A. March 31, 2022
Super Helpful I had a family law contempt of court issue that Celena was remarkably helpful with. She is understanding of budget needs, honest, reliable, and very good at making sure that the case is handled in a way that will yield the best results for you at a fair pricepoint. She helped settle out of court so that a long hearing wouldn't be necessary, was always willing to negotiate with the other lawyer further, and used her knowledge to keep my expectations reasonable. Even more important for me is that she wasn't afraid to represent a young trans person such as myself. I never got judgment, the office asked my preferred pronouns, and made me feel incredibly safe. This was a big concern, as the person filing against me specifically misgendered me in at least one document. I cannot recommend her more, and if I ever need a lawyer again, she will be my go to.
