Joanne and her team at Align Family Law were incredible from start to finish. Their attention to detail, level of professionalism, and knowledge of family law are second to none. Joanne answered all of my questions quickly and in a way that I could understand through every step of the process. What sets Align apart is that I always felt that they had my best interests at heart and were truly in my corner.”

What Our Clients Say

“I thank my lucky stars to have found Align Family Law to guide me through the process of my separation. I had no idea how to navigate the legalities of separation, what it entailed, what my responsibilities were, or how to even begin the process. Joanne immediately reassured me on a very human level that all would be resolved and that I would be able to start the next chapter of my life.”
