We engaged the services of Devry Smith Frank LLP to support with the purchase of our new home. We dealt primarily with Kelli, Sarah and Holly, who were very helpful and always provided timely responses to our many questions! I highly recommend DSF and would use their services again.
J Clifford
Amy Jephson and Cheryl Hill were instrumental in ensuring my divorce was as smooth and painless as possible. Both Cheryl and Amy were patient, diligent, and proactive in guaranteeing my matter was resolved quickly. I was extremely fortunate to have chosen them, as their ability to explain the procedure and advocate on my behalf (securing a positive outcome) was exceptional. Thank you, Amy and Cheryl, for all your help!
