I had the opportunity to retain Raushanah Rodgers earlier this year for my family court (divorce) case. My case was complicated, so i thought. With a threat from my spouse's attorney to respond to demands for spousal support and property settlement, I reached out to several attorneys over the July 4th holiday weekend, and Ms. Rodgers called me back within an hour from when I called and sent an inquiry. During the call, She was very matter of fact yet professional and agreed to meet me on a Sunday afternoon. From the time I met Attorney Rodgers, she was very clear and succinct about her strategy and confident in her abilities to represent me in a very challenging case with a spouse who deliberately was very difficult. I hired her on the spot. Attorney Rodgers is a great listener and very full of passion about her career, which was demonstrated in how she represented me. I could text her when situations would arise throughout the course of my case and she would respond to me with compassion and understanding. My spouse and attorney made threats and demands that literally caused me great concern and worry regarding my finances, my career, and my reputation. When talking to Attorney Rodgers she advised me of my rights and the confines of what the law stated in my situation. Shortly after I retained Attorney Rodgers, the harassment ceased and my spouse's attorney changed their tone and disposition, immediately. She truly was unmoved and unwavering in her strategy. Her confidence and knowledge is unsurpassed! Another thing I liked about Attorney Rodgers is her no non-sense approach and disposition when it comes to the law. She was knowledgable and persistent when it comes to representing my rights as a client. She was honest with me about what I should expect and she didn't waste my time or time money trying to appease my spouse and their attorney. She did not give in to the demands my spouse or the attorney made and she saw the case through to completion. I could never be more satisfied with the outcome of my case and how Attorney Rodgers represented me. She is truly one of the best of the best! Attorney Rodgers helped me through one of darkest seasons in my life that I thought would never end unless I was defeated, but I am so happy that I hired her! The investment in her does not compare to the service she provided. She was worth 10x more. She will forever be my attorney.

Our legal situation looked straight-forward but rapidly got more complicated. Mr. Mansfield kept us apprised of the decision tree we were facing: what the possible options were at each point based on the actions of the opposing attorney. When our situation got more complicated, he advocated for us without changing his fee quote. After it was over, knowing he had negotiated for us for two hours more than we had anticipated, I volunteered to pay for his professional services. The legal process is complicated and adversarial, and it felt good to have a knowledgeable attorney watching our back.

Wiley Nickel is a first class attorney! I had a pending charge in North Carolina that was preventing me from getting a job I really needed and wanted. I live in Oregon now so I was in a complete frazzled state of mind trying to figure out what I was going to do. I went on AVVO and started researching attorneys in the Raleigh, NC area and came across Wiley who had outstanding reviews. I sent a message on a late Saturday night and received a response Sunday morning! We discussed my case and I decided to hire him. From the beginning, Mr. Nickel was upfront and honest about the fact that I may be required to travel to North Carolina to handle my case and get it closed out, but he assured me he would do everything possible to try and prevent that. Not only did he take care of my case without me having to step foot outside of Oregon, he got it completely dismissed!!! This is where he went above and beyond his duties of an attorney.....my new place of employment was willing to work with me and still offer me the position as long as the case wasn't in pending status anymore. After a few weeks of us waiting for the DA to be back from vacation so Wiley could talk to him, I was getting very nervous that somebody else would be hired in my place because they were tired of waiting. Wiley offered to write them a letter explaining that the case is being worked on and he was confident in it being dismissed. I think that is what ultimately saved me from losing the job. He didn't have to take the time to do that and it was out of pure kindness of heart and understanding that he offered to do anything he could to help me. So in the end, my case was dismissed, I have officially been offered the position and now Wiley and his team are working on getting it expunged from my record (at no extra cost!). He clearly has a big heart and truly cares about his clients. Not once did I feel bad about bugging him with all my questions and concerns, he listened patiently and responded to emails right away. I highly recommend Wiley Nickel and his firm for any legal troubles you may have. Thank you again Wiley! You truly saved my life :)

Bob did an excellent job with the work he did for my step son. Bob is very straight and to the point when it comes to his clients and the law. It took a little over 2 years for my son's case to be completed and Bob fought for him during that time. The only area Bob could improve on is dealing with individuals who have never had to deal with the court system and lawyers. We did not know are boundaries with him and that caused some tension early on. We did however managed through it and he did an excellent job for my son. Thanks again, Bob

Don't waste your precious pre-trial time looking for other attorneys! Patrick Roberts, and anyone else on the Roberts Law Group team for that matter, will give all of themselves to the cause of your case. As for my case, Patrick himself saw it through. He did not just settle for a decent resolution, he fought for and defended my life until the very last straw of the case. It is my honor and my privilege to say that I choose the Roberts Law Group to represent me in my time of need. I am the living proof of what his work can provide. Thank you Patrick. God bless...

I recently had a situation occur that was potentially damaging for the rest of my life. I called Jesse and within 5 minutes of discussion on the phone told him to sign me up as a client and asked when we could meet. We discussed a brief overview of my situation and met the next day. Based upon our brief, initial discussion Jesse had already formulated some ideas and then, based upon our further, in-depth discussions Jesse knew exactly what course of action to take. I left his office with a plan, a promise from him to communicate and a much better feeling. Jesse laid out the course of how things would happen and and play out and how he would address them and he thought best to move forward. I trusted Jesse -implicitly- and he delivered. He researched my situation/case, contacted the appropriate parties in a timely and highly effective manner and proceeded to move forward exactly as he told me he would. Jesse never made any promises he couldn't keep/deliver and he was straight up with regards to matters that were of concern to me and potential "issues" with my situation. He quickly and effectively moved to trial but not without having a pretty clear picture of exactly what was going to happen. He told me what the outcome was likely to be and was completely honest during the whole process while giving me comfort with how the process would develop and evolve. Jesse was amazing - when we went to court that day he was more than just my advocate. He had my back in every sense of the word and truly looked out for my best interest. The results that Jesse attained are amazing - when I think of it I am still just a bit dumbfounded on how quickly he acted, how effective he was and how he delivered results that exceeded not only my expectations but, honestly, my best case scenario. Jesse will give you a review of your case, lay out his thoughts and opinion for you and tell you where you stand while making no unreasonable promises. I knew I had a good attorney when I read reviews from his peers and others in the legal field and they said they would choose Jesse if they needed an attorney - what I didn't know was that I would be getting someone who TRULY looks out for your human interests and rights. I could go on but I will close by simply stating that Jesse will tell you straight up what is going and and he will work hard for you, your rights and your interests.... and he isn't arrogant, judgemental or egotistical about it. Hire him -

    My name is Linda Boulom and I am being charged with encouraging, aiding, and causing a juvenile to consume alcohol. I was hosting a birthday party and the police discovered a 17 year old in my party that consumed alcohol. I was not monitoring her the whole night and was chaperoned by her 24 year old sister. I purchased non alcoholic drinks and I did not drink alcohol that night. I am 20 years old so I am not old enough to buy alcohol. The older attendees of the party brought it. Basically, I am being charged because I was the hostess of the party and it was at my apartment. I am in need of a lawyer that can help settle my case. I wanted to set up a consultation with someone at the earliest convenience.
