Client Testimonial

“Tina was amazing representing us in our family real estate/estate dispute. Her full dedication to our case went well above our expectations. Her quick understanding of our 3 year ongoing situation and discrepancy was solved in less than 6 months. Her knowledge of Missouri law inside and out, along with her professional guidance helped us receive what we deserved. Her fees are well worth the money. Her response time with our questions was absolutely amazing including after hours and weekend responses. If you are looking for someone to represent you, look no further than Carmody MacDonald. Along with Tina Babel’s guidance, her associate Jarred Boyer, and Principal Chris Lawhorn were equally amazing!” (January 2024)
