Paula Lawhon and Shelley Kennedy provided excellent service at a difficult time in my life. They were very easy to work with, professional, and ended up saving me a lot of money and potential hardship down the road.

“It was a pleasure working with you through this process, as it could have been a difficult time, but because of your knowledge and expertise we managed to stay focused on what we needed to do and not get into the legal minutia.

“Paula, thank you for your professional guidance and sensitive and fair mediation in helping with my divorce settlement agreement. It was a difficult time and you were able to represent both sides of the issue coaching us to come to a fair agreement. I felt like you were our lawyer and our therapist. You greatly helped us control emotions and make fair decisions. Once the agreement was reached, I appreciate that you were efficient about the processing of all of the paperwork.” – Ellen

“Paula really helped me out of jam in the mediation process for my divorce. My first lawyer was being very difficult wanting to fight every little point with my ex, which was not in mine or my family’s best interests. Paula worked very collaboratively with me and created a win-win solution for both of us, while ensuring that we were both ultimately protected. I recommend her unreservedly!” – Karen

“Paula is a rare find in that she is both efficient and gracious. She facilitated a collaborative effort writing and editing a legal cohabitation agreement, clearly explaining each step in the process, such that the two parties to the agreement—my partner and me—obtained a high quality result at reasonable cost. I highly recommend Paula to my own clients as an excellent family attorney and mediator” – Susan

“Back in July you mediated a pre-nup for my now-wife and me. Now that the wedding dust has finally cleared, I’m writing to thank you. [We] really felt like the mediation experience helped us not only to get our financial house in order, but to prepare for marriage in a larger sense, in that the process encouraged open communication and healthy realism. So, thank you for facilitating that. After working with you, we felt intensely glad that we did not subject ourselves to the traditional, adversarial process; little did we know that working out a pre-nup could be almost . . . fun.” – Clay

“My fiancée and I went to Paula from a professional recommendation from her job, so I had no more information than you do now prior to meeting for the first time with Paula. We sat down and got to business quickly over our agreement and I noticed that the meeting was very easy to follow and did not feel pulled in one direction or another, but at a pace comfortable for both my fiancée and I. We were both surprised how well Paula guided us through the information without giving preference to one party or the other on any given issue. I would certainly recommend Paula’s services for a mediation from our experience with her.” – Evan

“Thank you VERY much for all of your help. You made this a seamless process from A to Z and we are very appreciative.” – A.J.
