My husband and I were in a terribly sad situation post adoption. We needed attorneys that would understand broken emotionally and financially. Jared and Vanessa were the most dedicated, kind and delivered expert legal attention immediately to our situation. They cared about us and worked so diligently to keep us from being abused financially. I will forever hold a special place in my heart for Vanessa and Jared was amazing during our necessary court appearance. Please, if you need help and think all attorneys are like, read this review. Thank you Vanessa! Thank you Jared!

Jenna has been a huge asset to me. I was so lost regarding legal court proceedings, having never been in this circumstance before. She's truly a blessing, along with Samantha. I encourage anyone seeking legal counsel to chose this law firm. Very compassionate people who listen to your concerns and breakdown the best options for you. I highly recommend them!

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.

I would definitely recommend Mr. Brewer to anyone if they need a lawyer who is professional, takes the time to get the important details and makes sure his clients needs are met. He handled every aspect of my court hearings involving family/children with knowledge, compassion and experience.

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!
