A mom asked: “Would anyone like to recommend me a spit fire family law attorney for the Memphis area? Female preferably but at this point I just need someone willing to fight hard for my little girl.”  We got a lot of great responses, with several people chiming in to “second” and “third” the recommendations of others.
