Client Reviews

Client review of Columbus, Ohio law firm, Galloway Law

I contacted several attorneys about the process of adopting my adult step-son, with just a few minutes of conversation with Britani I knew she was the attorney I needed. Very personable, relaxed and friendly. So often attorneys can be rushed and rather rude, but she spoke like we were friends. She covered all the possible concerns, how the process worked and the timeframe, explaining every detail. This should have been an easy process and it was with her. The other attorneys wanted to treat this as an adoption as is done with a minor child, with all the additional costs which put this way out of my price range. Britani understood our reason for doing this and knew what procedures would not be needed or required by the courts. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and will definitely keep her in mind for future needs.
