Our Satisfied Clients
  • "Eloise listens, calms, solves and cares!"
    Eloise and staff are among the best--we had another attorney in the beginning and she did not represent us or have our best interest at heart. Eloise listens, calms, solves and cares!

  • "They treated me like a friend and gave me answers to everything."
    The staff and Ms. Guzman are absolutely awesome! I have never felt at any time thru the whole process, in my case - 3 years, that they did not have time for me. They treated me like a friend and gave me answers to everything I had questions about. I would recommend them to anyone that wants a lawyer to help them get through the process.
