Description of service

My ex-husband committed a crime 9 years ago, and since then he has not seen my daughter, who was two years old at the time. She fears him, does not want to see him, but he wants visitation. We retained an attorney to help us fight his attempts to see her. For the entire procedure, we retained her for $2,000.

Review of Service

This attorney has been incredible. We have had approximately 10 court hearings over the last month, and she has not charged an additional dollar. For this $2,000, she has represented us in court, driven 100 miles to depose a professional to testify on our behalf, made a number of phone calls, and written countless documents and replies to my ex-husband's attorney. I have always seen this profession as being rather - monetary-minded - and she really has done an excellent job for this amazing price.


1. Interview your prospective attorney before hiring him or her. Find out their level of experience and how frequently they encounter the issues with which you are dealing. Make sure they have enough background to understand your case thoroughly.

2. Talk to other people in the town. Usually, the majority of people in the community know who the "good" lawyers are. You never know when a seemingly simple issue or conversation will turn into a disaster of world-class proportions!
