Description of service

I hired an attorney to review some documents relating to my divorce/custody issues. There was no trial work involved and only the smallest amount of research.

Review of Service

The attorney I hired was a great guy, very friendly, likeable, appeared trustworthy. He looked over all of my documents, advised me of my options in regard to signing the documents and what the repercussions of signing those documents would be. I felt like I received good advice. He even went to so far as to explain the reasoning behind the local rules established by my county and state and provided me with a child support guideline table so I would be able to monitor whether or not my income changed enough to qualify for a change in support income.


I would suggest that you call around and shop prices. Unfortunately, the cost of good representation is often high but remember in most cases you get what you pay for. I had first spoken another guy who met with me all of 10 minutes and glossed over everything then charged me $50.00. I didn't even understand half what he was saying. The attorney I ended up retaining cost me more but I definitely got more out of the consult he gave. I came away from that appointment with a better understanding of how the legal system works and also, what to look for in a competent lawyer.
