“I now have joint custody of my little girl”

Posted in Testimonial tagged at 11:34 pm by demetriagraves

“I have a small girl whom I’ve been completely involved with since her birth, despite her mother and I having never been married. We had a mutual agreement that the courts never needed to be involved, and everything would be 50/50.  But eventually she filed for full custody, demanding I see my little girl 2 days a month. All this after 3 years without incident.

Frankly, I was scared. She had retained an attorney, but I could not afford one. We ultimately came to an agreement which held briefly. I thought my child was residing out of town with her mother for 4 months, when in fact, she was only 12 minutes away. At this point I immediately asked a friend in the law field for help. That friend came up with Demetria L. Graves.

Upon meeting Ms. Graves, I was immediately impressed with her demeanor. Previous potential counselors were unnecessarily “cut-throat.” One went as far as to say “I’ll get you full custody and MAKE her pay you support. We’ll stick it to her!” This coming from a lawyer at a large and well-to-do firm. Demetria asked me what I wanted, as opposed to telling me what to do just to get even. She understood my position and respected it. Demetria also never hesitated to tell me when my approach to the situation was wrong.  She moved quickly and her assistant, Sabrina, kept me informed every step of the way, via phone, email, and mail. Access to her newsletter led me to hold Demetria in even higher regard as a person truly dedicated to their field and wanting to help others understand it.

I now have joint custody of my little girl, with equal time/expenses shared. All I wanted was fair treatment for my Baby Girl, which is; both parents in her life.

I have, and will continue to refer Demetria Graves to anyone in need of counsel.”
