    "I have had a wonderful experience with the Solutions Based Family Law Group"
    I have had a wonderful experience with the Solutions Based Family Law Group. Especially, with my Lawyer Will Taylor and his paralegal Brandi. They both have been a huge help to me during my family law case, which is now finalized. They helped me get through some really tough times. Their support has meant so much to me. They are a good team and I feel they are responsive to the court and very professional and timely in their communications. They also have been responsive and accommodating to my needs. They streamlined the divorce process and kept everyone on the same page in some difficult negotiations. I appreciated them and their problem solving ability. They showed kindness and strength in a somewhat difficult situation. I thank them very much! Sincerely, MJR

    "Ashley Balicki was amazing during the divorce"
    Ashley Balicki, was amazing during the divorce. Her and Brandi handled my parenting hearing and division of assets. They made good calls and were on top of things. Even though, my ex was very difficult and made every attempt to take everything away from me, including my kids.. All I can say is, worth the money. Thank you Ashley and Brandi for all of your help and understanding during my difficult times.

    "I’m so thankful to have found Bridget Finn and Brandi with SBFL"
    I’m so thankful to have found Bridget Finn and Brandi with SBFL. Bridget is honest, fair, and he my best interest at heart every step of the way. She was the first attorney I’d ever worked with and what I through would be a daunting experience, she made somewhat enjoyable. I found it incredibly valuable that she knew how to navigate the emotional part of divorce. During mediation it was evident she is a well respected and desired attorney in the area!

    "Will Taylor helped me navigate a very difficult time in my life"
    Will Taylor helped me navigate a very difficult time in my life with a high level of professionalism and attention to detail. I highly recommend him and his firm.

    Thanks to his persistent efforts and ability to negotiate (with a less than ideal client), we were able to reach a settlement agreement without having to go to court over a messy breakup/property dispute. He made sure I was covered on all sides of the agreement to avoid present and future issues. That strongly written agreement has helped me many times since, of which I am incredibly thankful.

    Will had excellent communication the whole time, and worked closely with me to make sure I was happy with the ongoing communications and negotiations. He remained incredibly professional and direct, even when my ex would respond with negativity and insults.

    I hope I should not need legal representation any time soon, but if I did I would not hesitate to work with Will and his firm again.

    "Ashley was beyond patient, kind, and explained all steps so I completely understood."
    I chose Ashley as my lawyer for my recent divorce. Everything was "new" to me in regards to whole divorce process. Ashley was beyond patient, kind, and explained all steps so I completely understood. I asked a lot of questions and she always made me feel validated & comfortable. As, I hope to never need her services again, I wouldn't hesitate to contact her for future assistance. Her staff was just as great! Always returned my calls, texts & emails in very timely manner and were willing to help when I needed them.

    "William Smith is an amazing attorney."
    William Smith is an amazing attorney. I have used Will on several occasions over the past 8 years. You will not find anyone more knowledgeable in Family Law, thorough, professional, helpful and compassionate. Will is timely, checks in and has a fantastic paralegal to work with. He helped me navigate what I considered a high conflict divorce and I would not use anyone else!

    "Will Smith is a very knowledgeable and comprehensive attorney"
    Will Smith is a very knowledgeable and comprehensive attorney that works collaboratively with his clients to share the law but is always open to coming up with creative solutions that result in the best outcome for his clients. Will consistently makes himself available and helps quarterback the process in what is typically a very stressful situation for most clients.

    "I would highly recommend Will Smith for anyone in need of an experienced family law attorney"
    I have worked with William Smith with Solutions Based Family Law on a few occasions now. Initially he helped with my dissolution of marriage and parenting plan, and again more recently with a relocation case. I agreed with my ex-wife on most of the terms of dissolution and Will was able to help negotiate the remaining terms to meet or exceed my expectations. There were times when the situation had me a little irate, but Will was calm and professional and helped me understand the process. His paralegal and the rest of his team have been great to work with as well. During the case for relocation, I was told it wasn't likely to be a favorable outcome but I decided to press on. Will guided me through each of the steps I needed to take and helped me secure an underdog victory. He understood my financial situation and was very reasonable. I would highly recommend Will Smith for anyone in need of an experienced family law attorney.

    "In my books she is 200 out of a 100."
    Kathlyn Laraway is a star among stars. She is very knowledgeable, very hard working, kind and is very attentive to the clients needs. She worked on my case and can tell you she is super amazing.

    I am so glad I stuck with her from beginning to the need of my case. Not did she only win my case for me but she blew the case out of the water. In my books she is 200 out of a 100.

    I would also like to commend Molly Damrow for doing such a great job for supporting Kathlyn on my case. She is also a star among stars. I appreciate all the great work

    "Ashley Balicki is worth every penny and much more."
    For several months after I was served with divorce papers, I tried to represent myself. Once I realized that I needed a team, I chose Ashley Balicki and I am so grateful that I did. It was one of the best decision's of my life. Ashley's experience and knowledge ensured we were as prepared as possible for everything. She anticipated my needs and represented my position perfectly without needing much input from me. She is truly a lawyer who wants a great outcome between all parties involved, while still vigorously and expertly defending her client. If you unfortunately find yourself in a position where divorce is inevitable, Ashley Balicki is worth every penny and much more. I will forever be thankful for Ashley and Brandi.

    "From our first phone call I felt that she was extremely genuine and efficient."
    Kathlyn put my mind at ease!! I've been dealing with the courts and fighting for custody for many years and I told myself I didn't need an attorney years ago! I wish I would of found her earlier!! From our first phone call I felt that she was extremely genuine and efficient. She was able to offer me guidance and express my concerns in a way that the judge could understand. THANK YOU!

    "William kept me focused on the important tasks and goals"
    Nobody going through a divorce is sane. Emotions run high and there's plenty of blame to pass around. William kept me focused on the important tasks and goals and demonstrated knowledge, experience and attention to detail above and beyond. He set clear goals at the start, gave a reasonable estimate of what would need to be done and got to work. William did such a good job of moving the process forward that my Ex was regularly disappointed in her counsel. Even today, 7 days after the court finalized the process, my Ex's lawyer hasn't told her - I had to because William was all over it!
