Teresa was the guardian of my case, she listened to what my younger sister and I had to say and had our safety as the main priority no matter what.

Teresa Fout & her law partner are amazing!!! Teresa was our attorney & she was amazing!! She was always there day or night!! She returned our calls & emails promptly!!! BEST FAMILY ATTORNEY BY FAR!!! Thank you Teresa for everything!!! Your the BEST!!!
Teresa is a very professional legal representative that was very patient with me and very comforting. She took the time to answer and clarify, if needed, any questions I had. She was very helpful and knew the laws and how to handle what I would call a difficult situation. She even assisted me after the divorce was final with some advice I needed and was there for me even with her busy caseload. I would certainly recommend her to anyone that would need her services.
Attorney Fout is amazing! She had to wear many hats during a very difficult case for my children and me over a 3-year process. She has a great depth in many areas of the law with the ability to understand how painful these times can be. She is very professional and has an extreme passion for high integrity. Because my children were involved her background as a Guardian ad Litem was so profound. I recommend her to others in need, as she can help in a plethora of legal avenues.
