Allison is definitely the best. She helped me every step of the way and she listened to my needs and helped me to stay focused. I was able to contact her office if I needed any explanations or had any questions and she took the time to make sure that I understood what was happening with my case and paperwork (which can be very daunting). She treated me with respect and dignity even when I was emotional. I f… Read more


My family and I will forever be thankful for Michael Bender. He has worked long and hard on my case and was successful.. Every case will have its ups and downs, but I knew right after I met Michael Bender, he would be the one to get me where I wanted to be. He was professional and honest and kept in touch with me and replied to every voicemail I left and addressed every concern with his most honest opinion.… Read more


Wish I came to this office sooner. A friend recommended this legal firm on many occasions. So I met with Allison and she was great. She took her time and explained everything to me. I left there feeling much more confident and ready to deal with my on going divorce. I am happy with how things have been moving along so far. I have faith in Allison and the team there that she will correct what was wrong and g… Read more


Grey and legal has been a big help in a custody battle I’ve always been a step behind. I would definitely recommend this legal group to anyone. Worth every dollar spent and they maximize it as well. I’d also say do the right thing because karma is real especially if you have good representation!


Mike is a great, knowledgeable and experienced attorney. He represented me and is a second generation lawyer. I would recommend him to anyone for his calm competence and courtroom manner.


The attorneys at Grey Legal Group have been there for me during this process. Answering my many questions honestly. Even when I did not like the answer. They gave me the re-assurance I needed when my ex would do crazy stuff. I would recommend Attorneys Tilton and Bender if you need help.

Joseph R.

I used them for a past divorce and had a great experience. I needed an Attorney that was knowledgeable with DFAS and with Military retirement, child support, spousal support and custody. If you are a military spouse it is very important that you choose an Attorney that knows the system. Michael Bender was very professional and goes above and beyond for his clients. I highly recommend this family law firm.


I am a new client with the Grey Legal Group, but so far everything has been up to my expectations. They are very caring and they have made my divorce and child custody not as scary as I thought it would be. It is very easy to get ahold of someone when I have questions and they are very understanding. I would definitely recommend The Grey Legal Group to everyone.


Allison helped me through a normally difficult annulment process. She was attentive to my situation every step of the way, took the time to explain to me in what was going on, and kept me informed on what I could expect to happen next. I feel confident in recommending her to anyone I know that is looking for family law assistance.


I came to Allison and The Grey Law Group when in June my husband of 35 years filed for divorce. Allison was great to work with! I have heard friends say their divorces drag on forever but Allison handled everything so professionally and I was divorced in 6 months!!i I highly recommend her !! I have recommended Allison to anyone who asks me who handled my divorce.

Sue Gibson

I am a single mother of 3 and have been embroiled in a contentious custody battle for the last three years. Unfortunate for me, my “Ex” has a lot more resources at his disposal than I do. Unfortunate for him, I have Grey Legal Group at my disposal. Since the very beginning, Grey has been fantastic to work with. They listen, consult and strategize, which makes me feel comfortable in the entire process. I wou… Read more

Lorena M.

I was referred to Allison Tilton after not being happy with my previous attorney. It’s not because that attorney wasn’t good, we just had differing opinions on how to handle my case.  Allison stepped in and right away we developed a good working relationship.  She is knowledgeable, attentive, responsive, professional and courteous. She has the added benefit of having a background in tax law, which was ver… Read more

Basil M.

They say a doctor who operates on himself has a fool for a patient. As I found out, this goes for legal work as well. When I did my own divorce, I was able to get it done, but ended up on the short end of a bad agreement. Attorney Tilton at Grey Legal has been able to pick up the pieces and get me on the way to a situation that is fair for everyone concerned. I’m impressed with her expertise and professiona… Read more

John M.

Allison is one of the most knowledgeable attorneys I know when it comes to Family Law. I have consulted with her many times on my cases when they have a family law component. In addition, I have referred numerous clients to Allison. I have had many of them thank me for sending them to her. I have never heard a complaint from anyone I sent to her.


Micheal Bender has represented me throughout my child custody case multiple times and has handled everything in perfect manor. All my requests have been meet on time and followed through perfectly. Thanks again for the great legal help. I will recommend Mr. Bender to anyone in need of family legal representation.


I came to the gray Legal Group when I needed some family law help, Allison the attorney I worked with was great. Things were done in a very timely manner and I was very impressed with them. I have worked with other attorneys in the past ( but was not impressed)and I would come back to the Gray Legal Group because of their efficiency and professional manners. I highly recommend them.

Giget Davis

I have been working with Attorney Michael Bender since 2011. He has done his due diligence every step of the way. He has always performed at a level higher than I have expected. I would recommend him and his office to anyone. His courtroom etiquette is above reproach. His legal advice is without false hopes. You don’t want a shark; you want the Grey Legal Group.
