Tammy Forrest, Esq., Senior Trial Counsel

I have devoted my entire 31-year career to criminal law.

Even worse, being charged with a sex crime can have devastating lifelong consequences.

Katherine E. Camadeco, Esq.

My philosophy is simple: the cornerstone of my legal approach is achieving creative solutions for you that put family first. Family law cases are complex and emotional – and the consequences of the outcome affect you and your family for the rest of your lives. Every family is unique, and I dedicate myself to providing creative solutions to my clients as they restructure their family. 

I have developed my philosophy as I have navigated the family law waters in various roles, among several states, with hundreds of families since beginning my work in family law in 2012. Your rights, emotional health, and future are paramount as I work relentlessly to get you the results you are seeking in your family law matter. Just as your family is your compass that guides everything you do, putting your family first is my guiding star as long as I am your legal advocate.
