Meet The Team

We Understand the Importance of Trust in the Family Law Attorney-Client Relationship
  • “Great Dependency Lawyer”
    Great dependency lawyer. Was able to make strong arguments with very little information. Super sharp.
    - Previous Client
  • “Divorce & Separation Advice Session”
    I needed help with a legal document. Tiffany Andrews answered my questions, gave me advice about possible changes to protect myself and also provided possible consequences of putting in or leaving out certain items. What really impressed me is if I interrupted her at any time, she stopped talking to listen. She was really listening and making sure she understood what I was asking. I am super impressed with this service and her.
    - Previous Client
  • “Professionalism and Expertise”
    Mende Romaniak has again shown both professionalism and expertise as she helped navigate me through gaining custody of my daughter. Through her hard work and concise detailing of my case not only was she able to secure sole physical custody but also sole legal custody as well. I was told more than once that gaining custody as a father is a tall order but Mende and the Law office of Tiffany Andrews came through with flying colors. I highly recommend.
    - Mike
  • “Highly Recommend this Law Firm”
    Extremely knowledgeable of the family law issues confronting me. Highly motivated to assist and involve me in the process so there are no surprises. So far I am satisfied with the process and would highly recommend this law firm to take care of your legal issues.
    - Jack
  • “Kindness and Generosity”
    I can not thank me Andrews and her team enough for the kindness and generosity they showed me throughout one of the most difficult things I’ve had to deal with in my life. My head was spinning after months of googling and weighing my options while searching for a lawyer to handle my case. I imagine like most in the working class you may be afraid that you will make the mistake and hire the wrong lawyer. Wasting all your funds and end up no better off than you were. This was not the case with Tiffany and her team. I made the stupid mistake of going to the first part of my divorce custody case of going at it alone my case was very clear and I trusted the justice system to do what was right. This was not the scenario I faced. The opposition lawyer was able to manipulate everything and knew loopholes that the average person wouldn’t even believe was something that could happen in a court room. I can not stress enough it does not matter what is right and what is wrong you need a lawyer to protect yourself. As far as I’m concerned Tiffany and her team are mericle workers. I went into this thinking “oh great I’m going to be manipulated out of more and more money and I’m going to end up where I started anyway” following Tiffany’s advice I ended up being able to protect myself. From the moment I retained ms Andrews she was there for me literally day and night. I had many questions and issues throughout my case and though I don’t suggest anyone bothering her after business hours there were a few times I felt I needed to contact her and received a response very shortly after. These responses were often reassuring that she had things under control. This is a huge factor for me. Also she was very knowledgeable and always represented herself and myself in good light. I did not want to be vicious and aggressive and she managed to be assertive without being over the top. She was very respectful and I never had the feeling hat things were over my head. She always took the time to explained things to me in a way that I could understand and make well informed decisions. I would and will recommend me Andrews and her team to anyone looking for the best.

  • “I would highly recommend her to anyone!”
    It is true that divorce is the most trying time anyone will ever experience. Having said that, Tiffany has been an ally in the onslaught of negativity. My case has been VERY complicated and has involved domestic violence. She has worked to affect a positive outcome for me and my son. While this case is not over, and the outcome is still uncertain, I am certain that I am in the best hands possible with her as my attorney. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
    - Previous Client
  • “Dedicated and Professional”
    Ms.Andrews represented My husband and I for a very emotional child custody case in early 2010. She was professional, prepared and most importantly fought for our side to be heard by all parties involved. 
    We are thankful for all the hard work that she put into our case that lead to a positive ending for our case. We would recommend Ms. Andrews for any legal issues that you may have in family court.
