ToniAnn shepherded me through a high-conflict divorce from my husband of 16 years. At the time, I felt depleted and overwhelmed by uncertainty and a total breach of trust by my ex-husband. I credit ToniAnn for guiding me through the divorce process and negotiating on my behalf so that we were able to settle out of court. When I shared my concerns with ToniAnn, she deeply listened and addressed all of them in the negotiation of my separation agreement. No concern was too small for consideration. This agreement has given me long-term financial security and set boundaries that help me to continue to raise children with my ex-husband. ToniAnn understood that my children were my top priority and prioritized their well-being too. She found creative and practical solutions to disagreements to keep the process moving along and she helped me envision what my life might look like after divorce. I especially appreciated her integrity and ability to work with my ex-husband’s attorneys who were inflammatory and dehumanized me. I am certain that ToniAnn’s ability to negotiate and articulate legal provisions that protected me and addressed my concerns ensured the best possible outcome for me and my children.
I hired ToniAnn just before the pandemic in November 2019. She is level headed and logical- which allows her to understand the financial and monetary aspects of a marriage. However, it is her ability to be empathetic and a great communicator that results in her being a successful negotiator on her clients’ behalf. She strikes the right balance between pushing and being respectful, being firm and yet open to solutions. She also brought a sense of calm and stressed the importance of being patient, she had my back at all times, and in the end negotiated a secure future for me. I adore her!
English is not my first language and the American divorce system was totally foreign to me. ToniAnn, with much patience and compassion, navigated me through every detail and option we may have chosen to proceed with. She fought on my behalf on every possible level, sometimes, without my full understanding of the outcome, but I was so grateful for every creative suggestion she brought to the table. My divorce process took almost 3 years and at the end I received exactly what I have asked for. She helped me get a secured and stable future, which I am forever grateful for.
