Thoughtful and Strategic
Erin Turner is intelligent, strategic, and honest. She was incredibly thoughtful about picking strategies that worked in my case - she knew when and how hard to push, when to wait and not "take the bait," and when to change approaches. I had an ex who was abusive and continued those tactics through the legal system, to the extent possible. She kept me calm through a really dark time. I am lucky she was my guide and advocate. I'd recommend her to anyone in a child custody/child support case.
