This is in recognition of Toni Lee & her team who I believe from personal experience to be genuinely honest, reliable, professional but above all else a person that I can speak to without fear or favor. Toni Lee has literally picked me up from rock bottom after my marriage broke up 9 months ago, not only has she shown empathy, grit, determination, but a positivity in her approach to what I had foreseen as total despair, for this I cannot thank her enough along with the people that work alongside her.
I would like to thank Toni-lee for her caring, personable and very professional help she has offered to me in regard to my matter.
I would highly recommend Caralee and her team at Collective Family Law Group to assist with the best outcome and cost effective way to handle a legal matter.
