From day one, LaToya was amazing. She was steadfast and so dependable. She was there any time I needed her throughout my process. It didn’t matter the time I emailed, her response came quicker than I thought it would. She was beyond supportive & reassuring throughout it all. My custody agreement was granted, my order of protection was extended. I can say grateful does not even begin to describe what I am. Thank you for everything LaToya. You don’t know how much this all means to me, for this weight to be lifted.
Thankfully, Beautiful soul, helpful, knowledgeable.

I was so angry and frustrated with the system. Mrs James listened to me attentively with such patience did not interrupt my angry rant. She asked all the right questions and when I was finished, with such wisdom explained things to me in a way I could understand. Immediately I was comforted with understanding of my situation and gifted with direction. I admire her empathy for humanity. It's good to know there are good people out there. May God continue to bless her and her loved ones.

Ms. James was amazing in court today. I was being harassed by a bully who got a restraining order against me to further his bullying. Ms. James absolutely demolished his testimony and proved him to be the lier that he is. The order was dismissed.

Latoya took me on as a client,mid custody battle on a Friday night and was ready for court on Monday morning. She has been honest, direct and has accomplished more than my previous attorney was able to in years. She has been supportive and was able to resolve a very difficult case with a better outcome than could have been hoped for. I highly recommend Latoya.
Excellent Phone Consultation

Although we live outside New York, we needed an opinion from an attorney familiar with NY laws. The rising stars of the NY legal profession referred us to Ms. James. She was diligent in contacting us (probably spent more time playing phone tag than the actual conversation), and quickly grasped the issues and circumstances of our situation. She was clear, efficient, matter-of-fact, and put our minds to rest in a 20-minute conversation that was grounded in common sense and logic. She will be our go-to for future family law issues in the state of New York.
Great lawyer

I contacted Latoya due to an unfortunate situation and when first speaking with her she was very understanding and informative. I hired her and went through the motions of court. She was there every step of the way and if I ever had any questions or concerns she was quick to respond. She is extremely knowledgeable of the court system and it's process and was able to get me the best possible outcome in the cases I had.
