What Our Clients Say

Avery W

"David has done nothing but incredible work."

“My attorney is David Collins. Although I feel like everyone in this office cares about and works on my case. David has done nothing but incredible work. He supports me as a mother and fights for my rights nonstop. He cares about my opinion on all steps we take and always consults me before making moves. I’m very glad I hired him. Especially since all the work he does, to me, is worth way more than the super affordable prices I’m actually paying.”

Brian D.

“I don’t where to start! All I have to say is this, if you want a Lawyer that wants the best for you and will protect you and your child through a divorce…Jennifer Garcia is the one that you will want and need. Jennifer has been there for me and my son through this entire process and is absolutely amazing. She knows so much and I promise she has your back and interest. I am in a middle of a custody case with my son and she has been there for me whenever I needed her. I absolutely love this firm and I could not of ask for a better lawyer. She has been there for me this entire time and not once turned her back us. Like I said, Jennifer Garcia and the law firm of Modern Family Law is all you will ever need.
Thanks, Mike”

Rebecca B.

"Modern Family Law made a very difficult process so much easier..."

“I’m fortunate that I had a very amicable divorce so, when I had some questions concerning, laws, paperwork, etc., I turned to Modern Family Law and was connected with their attorney. She was patient, knowledgeable, thorough and supportive. Getting divorced is not fun and not understanding all the legal mumbo jumbo makes it just that much worse and she made sure to explain everything to me so I understood what was going on and she was always available when I had questions. Modern Family Law made a very difficult process so much easier and a little less painful. Thank you Modern Family Law!”
