“It was so great to have Louisa help me file for a protection order. She was already at the courthouse when I arrived at our scheduled time, which was so comforting, considering I had never been there before and didn’t really know where to go or what I was doing. She was prepared and knowledgeable, down to the pen that I forgot to bring to fill out the necessary paperwork. Louisa’s expertise and confidence, along with her calm and collected demeanor were so helpful during the process, which helped ease my anxiety and stress after a traumatic event. We got the paperwork filled out in a timely manner, allowing us to be second on the docket, in what could have been an event that lasted a few hours that Monday morning. When we got into the courtroom and the judge called my name, she displayed a level of confidence as my advisor that I was unable to provide myself, which was great considering my inexperience and ignorance of the process.
Acquiring a restraining order was something new for me and I can’t express how grateful I am to have had Ms. Schlieben there!”
