"Bianca was a lighthouse in the darkness. I am a father of 2 boys and was never able to meet my second son for 2 and a half years ... because of her ,and where all other attorneys failed, we are now United and that is just one small piece of the puzzle ....due to her knowledge of the law and compassionate nature, which is a surprise to find within such a complex legal case. She never made me feel she was ever out of reach. Always accessible via text or phone , verses any other attorneys that only give an email and leave you guessing for days to weeks. Bianca was always professional in court. I highly recommend her to anyone in real need of justice. Sincerely, J.S. "
An attorney like no other
"Unfortunately for me I have had my share of experiences of attorneys. I can say from personal experience there is nothing worse than an attorney who lacks compassion and understanding. Even the smartest legal minds come up short if they don't have the ability to connect with their client. Finding yourself with a ton of questions combined with your attorney never being available, leaves you feeling alone an unsure. Bianca is the EXACT opposite of all of that. She was always there when I needed her. She was there to answer questions, research, write and represent. She has a true love and respect for the law and of equal importance to her is making sure her clients know they matter. She is extremely intelligent, patient, professional, fair and honest. This makes her a person you not only want, but must have by your side. Other attorneys respect her and as equally important, so do the Judges. She is a zealous advocate for her clients in the court room who never backs down but does it in away that she makes her point professionally. I recommend her to all my family, clients and friends should they find themselves in a situation where they need legal protection and advice. In my opinion you would be hurting your cause if you didn't consult with Bianca before choosing an attorney. "
