Our Clients Share Their Experience

“Elizabeth set realistic expectations from day one while still accommodating what my family’s goal was in our child custody case. She was always very quick to return emails and phone calls. There were several emergency situations for the case where she responded almost immediately with a plan on how to handle everything. What my family appreciates most is that we were not treated like just another client. She was extremely personable and earned our family’s trust as someone who had our child’s best interest in mind throughout the whole process. Highly recommended.”

Former Client

“We did have a great day in court. Steve was able to drive home the points that needed to be driven home and show our case in its true nature to the court all the while keeping opposing counsel from walking us into traps that he saw before she even began to speak. That is one impressive guy to sit beside in the courtroom.”


“For over 35 years your firm has represented our office in all real estate transactions, disputes and collections. The knowledge, availability and professionalism of the attorneys and staff have always been outstanding.”


“I was vulnerable and oblivious of where to even start in my divorce case. I hired Elizabeth Thorne after reading hundreds of online reviews for several lawyers. Elizabeth was recognized repeatedly with 5-star reviews – Now I know why and agree 100%!!! When I first met with Elizabeth and told her my situation, she was extremely knowledgeable and very realistic with every question and concern I addressed, while also covering all circumstances I never would have thought were even relevant. I was immediately at ease and knew I found the right person after minutes of hearing her overview and counseling me where it mattered most. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone going through a divorce. She is confident and honest and truly does have your best interest at heart! She was 100% on my side and very trusting while having to face one of the most difficult times in my life. She was very quick to respond to me as well as my husband’s attorney and covered all bases professionally and rationally even when my husband’s attorney was being very demeaning towards me and unfair. Thank you Elizabeth! You were the rock holding me up in the most difficult and challenging period in my life!”


“I first came into contact with Steve Lewellyn of the law practice of Davies, Barrell, Will, Lewellyn & Edwards, PLC via a friend who had a work associate represented by him. Upon first approach I could sense that Mr. Lewellyn was going to be very thorough in my case and very sensitive to my situation. I had just lost my wife in a fatal car accident, who was not at fault, and was still very distraught from that loss. Steve, and his paralegal Susan, would go on to adjust to my schedule that was very chaotic at the time and only ask of me what was absolutely necessary. Before going into the case, Steve had already warned me of the time it would take and just how delicate the situation would become. There was no deception in any of his words or actions and only concern for my well being emotionally. I had never had to hire a lawyer before this case and only had heard all the negative stereotypical descriptions associated with them. I walked away from the experience very satisfied with the results and in the way Mr. Lewellyn and Susan conducted themselves around me. I have already recommended the firm to many friends and relatives in the area and would prefer that Steve be involved in any future cases I may have in the future.”


“Thank you for guidance and patience working us through our estate planning process. It was like working with an old friend!”

D.W. & M.W.

“My husband and I were very much pleased with your professional and personable service assisting us with estate planning. You explained and answered all our questions. We would be happy to recommend your services to our friends with a positive endorsement.”


“Thanks so much, Attorney Johnson, at least we still have you on the case and that is a blessing – you did a phenomenal job last time and the HOA appreciates it.”

Colette S

“I have so much respect for Elizabeth Thorne. She is very kind and patient. She is always quick to respond to any questions I had. She got me more than I had expected in my divorce. Very satisfied with the firm.”


“Thank you for your work on our project. Your connections in our community are truly amazing. What a great result!”


“I hired Elizabeth Thorne to work my divorce and the following child custody issues. Before working with her I had consulted another attorney – however, if I had followed his advice I would have been breaking the law. Elizabeth knows the laws and never lead me astray or gave me a false hope. She is grounded in reality – something I really needed during a very difficult time in my life. With her help, my family is whole again and my children are safe and happy!”

Former Client

“Mr. Will and his paralegal, Dody, put all our fears to rest and made the settlement process easy, wonderful, and even memorable. We would definitely place our trust in your services again!”


“The support, compassion, kindness and legal wisdom you have demonstrated throughout my custody dispute has proven invaluable for my family and me. Being a single father seeing to safeguard the well-being of my children and defend my parental rights has proven to be a challenge, thanks to you and your team, my efforts were successful. I am and will be eternally grateful.”
