Another Happy Ending: Alyssa Koenig
Updated: Jan 15
In our “Another Happy Ending” series, we talk with Alyssa Koenig about her experience working with Smedley Law Group founder AllynMarie Smedley, Esq. and Associate Attorney Ryan Foran, Esq., along with the firm’s team during her divorce. “My daughter has special needs and my attorneys were more than understanding in what I intended our lives to look like post-divorce to minimize the effects on her, as well as my young son,” she says.
Q: How did you find and select Ali's firm to represent you?
AK: Word of mouth.
Q: Looking for the right attorney to represent you during your divorce or other family law matter can be tough. What characteristics were you looking for in your attorneys and how did your lawyers line up?
AK: I came in confused about my options, and left with more clarity every single time I met with my attorneys and the firm’s staff.
Q: Did you have any particular challenges or special circumstances that your attorneys and the firm helped with?
AK: My daughter has special needs and my attorneys were more than understanding in what I intended our lives to look like post-divorce to minimize the effects on her, as well as my young son.
Q: What’s a good first step to take when you’ve got to make the decision to split, or when your spouse has told you he or she wants a divorce?
AK: Arm yourself with as much information as you can. I recommend attending one of the firm's workshops about divorce to become more knowledgeable. Do everything you can to take care of yourself personally throughout the process.
Q: What was your overall experience of working with your attorney and the firm?
AK: Very positive.
Q: How does your life look right now?
AK: Like I’m continuing forward and never looking back!
