I highly recommend Jared Brewer or Vanessa Bean!! I personally had Vanessa handle my case through my divorce. She was absolutely amazing and I felt confident walking into court with her by my side. Everytime we have been in court I have left happy with the outcome!

Jared helped my 80 year old mother with her divorce. She was so traumatized by her husband of 40 years serving her with divorce papers that she not easy to work with. He was incredibly patient and did an amazing job helping her navigate through the process. He was able to get her a very appropriate judgment. He even worked with her budget allowing her to make affordable payments. If you need a really good divorce lawyer I highly recommend Jared.

We had the privilege of working with Mr. Brewer during our custody battle for our son. Jared was very knowledgeable about the court system process and adoption procedures. I feel DHHS listened intently once we had Jared working with us. We are happy to have adopted our son and will forever be grateful for all Jared and his legal team did for us!
