Client Reviews
★★★★★
"Christy Hertz helped me tremendously with co-parenting issues concerning my daughter. She was fair, listened to me and gave me great advice. She was honest with me, and I have great respect for her because of it. Ultimately, my daughter's father recognized what he needed to do for our daughter's wellbeing. Thanks to Christy, he became much more cooperative, and his cooperation will help in my daughter's development now and for years to come. I'd say she is worth every penny." K. D.
