Anita Britton was recommended to me as THE best Attorney in the State of Kentucky in matters of Divorce by the wife of a close friend, who grew up in Versailles. Her reputation as being firm, fair, honest and ethical are, undoubtedly, the reason for her top reviews. The place where I see her shine most is in the courtroom. Obviously, in divorce, there are many issues. Anita has the amazing ability to laser focus on the pertinent matters and ignore the bull. The dynamics of the room palpably change when she enters the room. I have seen it first hand. She is respected by other Attorneys as well as Judges. She makes other Attorneys behave better simply by her presence. I highly recommend her and any of her staff.
I want to take a moment to express my gratitude, and to highly recommend Tamara Combs and the entire staff at Britton Johnson PLLC. Our case was complicated and time consuming, and involved custody and child support for my son with special needs, among other things. Tamara was very involved during every step of the process in and out of court and mediation. She was incredibly compassionate and attentive to our needs, and went out of her way to learn all that she could regarding my son’s conditions and our unique circumstance, in order to provide us with the best representation possible. She served as an advocate for our entire family, and I am so grateful for her advice and guidance. Thank you!
Amy Johnson was great and really helped me understand all the steps to get through filing for my divorce. They had everything typed out with checklists for before during and after the divorce which was very helpful during a stressful time and always responded to my email extremely quickly. I recommend this office and especially Amy Johnson.
I cannot say enough GREAT things about EVERY Lady at this firm. I went through a very messy divorce (probably not by anyone else’s standards, but certainly by mine) and I wouldn’t have any other firm on my side. Amy kept me updated on every detail, all along the way. When I needed to talk about something or whenever I emailed, I knew I would receive a response very quickly. These Ladies are professional, courteous and no-nonsense. If you are looking for a TERRIFIC firm to represent you…Choose BRITTON JOHNSON PLLC!! You will not be sorry!! Anita has formed a rock solid team. Way to go Ladies…I applaud you!!
