  • Firm Reviews
    “There really should be 6 star ranking for those rare individuals that go well and above… their areas of expertise are never a pleasant subject but when you have folks that really care and listen and deliver – life becomes good again (unless you are on the other side!)” – R.P. “In my opinion, Lyons and Associates is a 5-star, top-tier law firm specializing in Family Law. I was very pleased with the outcome of my matter, which was handled by attorney Mark Gabriel. As valuable as the favorable outcome was the process, or journey towards that outcome. Mark delivered very competent, compassionate legal counsel and services. He was sensitive and attuned to all aspects of my case. The legal support staff were professional and friendly every time I encountered them. Terry Lyons is a gem. I highly recommend Lyons and Associates.” – N.S. “I highly recommend Lyons & Associates. Terry and her staff are knowledgeable, experienced, and compassionate. The culture of Lyons and Associates cultivates a feeling of strength and security for all who require their services.
