"I highly recommend Marissa Wachter and Darya Swingle for your QDRO needs.  My whole experience with Marissa and Darya was positive, compassionate and professional. They rescued me in a time of high stress and great need. Every communication with them was answered quickly and clearly (and believe me, I had a lot of questions in the beginning).  I wholeheartedly recommend Marissa Wachter and Darya Swingle."

"If you need lawyers who will handle your QDRO from start to finish, with exacting attention to detail, and dogged persistence until the funds are transferred, call Darya and Marissa.  You will not find QDRO lawyers who are more pleasant to work with, as highly trained, or as dedicated to perfectionism as these two.  I would trust them with even the most complex retirement plan."

-Leigh Noffsinger, family law attorney

"Would you love to have two attorneys delight and surprise you with exceptional communication, integrity and care in the midst of a divorce?  Darya and Marissa not only DID, but they exceeded my expectations by creating and submitting a QDRO and a Property Division Order in my divorce.  Both attorneys kept me in the loop through the entire process, they were prompt with answering emails/questions, and knowing time lines of completion once a legal document was submitted.  Absolutely exceptional & professional, look no further for your attorneys!"
