Judicial Law Clerk – The Honorable William F. Ward, Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County, Family Division, 2012-2014
From the moment I met Brittany, I felt at ease. She was professional, and communicated very clearly with me. I knew exactly what to expect, and never for one moment did I feel like I was facing this difficult chapter of my life alone. I knew nothing about court, or the law, or divorce before this experience, so I was very nervous. It felt so good having someone that was graceful, poised, and professional in my corner. She’s well versed in the law, and I never felt like I was getting bad advice. I reached a point where I was frustrated with my ex husband and just wanted to leave everything, but she talked reason to me, and I truly felt like she understood what I was going through. Should I ever find myself in the same situation twice (which I hope will never happen), I know where I’ll be going! – Christina G.
