    I have had a few cases with Ms. Garwood over the years and find her to be of high moral caliber and a superb attorney. She provides zealous representation for her clients. She is very aggressive but very professional and an amicable opposing counsel. I rate her abilities as a certified family law specialist as extremely high.
