“The team at Farias Family Law is great! I was at a crossroad in my life and needed help. I found Farias listed online and called them for a consult. I am so happy I did. They navigated my divorce with consideration and expertise. My attorney Nina Sousa and my paralegal Meghann Farrell were great. They were patient with my never ending questions, quick to respond to my concerns and they were caring when I was discouraged. They swiftly navigated my case from a contested divorce to a non-contested hearing with a full & fair agreement. I’m in a carefree, solid place now and wouldn’t have been able to get here without them!”

“I would absolutely refer Farias Family law to anyone in need of council/representation! I approached Attn Farias about a year ago and stated my intentions to file for divorce. He had answered all my questions very clearly and set proper expectations on how to proceed. I had Attn Sousa on my case. She was so supportive, patient, and responsive to all my needs and queries. I always felt that she had my best interests at heart and fought to help me achieve my goals. I also had Avery and Meghann as my paralegals who took great care of me, kept me on task, and coordinated all of the information required for my case. Ultimately, I feel the outcome in my proceedings was fair and much sooner than expected (which I appreciated). I highly recommend Farias Family law.
