What our clients say

— Melissa C., Pasadena, CA

"I'm a very picky person and after going through a slew of consultations I knew with in 5 minutes that I was in the right place. They helped me with a custody case and were there with me every step of the way. It's hard to put a price on peace of mind, but Foothill Law Group is so worth it. They are smart, fierce and well prepared. Thank you so much!!"

What our clients say

— Dr. Penelope C., Hollywood, CA

"LIFESAVERS. That's exactly what they are...I can't think of a better way to describe Desiree and her entire legal and administrative team. Not only was the support staff who answered the phone (Nancy) so refreshingly patient, knowledgable, and understanding of exactly what I needed, but the attorney assigned to my case, Desiree, was a breath of fresh air and made me feel like everything I needed to get done was possible. She made it happen. Her team made it happen. And now for the first time in days, I can actually sleep. I deserve sleep and so do you..."
