Reality check. Fall 2014. My marriage of 17 years with 4 children was not getting better. Despite countless attempts to be heard and separation, my husband at the time became increasingly more verbally aggressive, punishing me through financial means and threats. My case was very unique and complicated; I have a genetic progressive condition that is, and will take my vision and hearing ultimately. I use a cane to navigate. Terrified, and having nothing to fall back on, but a laptop I received through a State program, it was now time to file for divorce. I reached out to a few attorneys on Thumbtack, describing my situation in hopes to find someone who would try to understand my situation and willing to take on my case. Nicholas Gottwald responded and was very sympathetic to my struggles, offering his services. He walked me through each step, responding promptly to my emails in times when my living situation became hostile, resulting in Nick's help to remove my soon to be Ex from the home. 3 months after filling, we entered Bifurcated divorce pending final mediation, 6 months to finalize financials. The next few years dragged on with more threats, false accusations, and unwillingness to mediate from my Ex. Nick stood by my side, giving me honest facts, reality, while never giving me false hope. He fought hard in my defense against false assumptions/accusations thrown my way in court on multiple occasions. Every time we prevailed! Fast forward to July 2017, Judicial Settlement. I was determined to keep it from going to trial unlike my Ex. I came prepared in my defense for questions I’d be asked by the Judge as he went back and forth between rooms. “You don’t look blind. You’re very well put together”. My response, “What does blindness look like?”. Pulling out simulator glasses of my current vision, I asked him to put them on, while I described different situations. He then realized just how constricted my vision really is, and apologized by saying, “I didn’t mean to discredit your disability”. 3 hours later, the pressure was on both sides. There is no win/win in divorce. There may be more give than take on one party than the other...I gave more away financially in alimony duration-terms, but ultimately gained more in the end. My Ex did not succeed in his attempt to cause me further financial harm. It was finally over, and I can happily say, I’m now free! Time to move on :) I can’t thank Nick enough for his dedication! I know without a doubt, it was not easy...As I’ve told him before, I will be sure to refer any and all of my visually/hearing impaired friends in need of legal assistance, his way ;) Many thanks, M.A.
Working with the Law Office of Paul B. Johnson has been incredible. He first contacted me on a Saturday since I first sent out my request for a Patent or Intellectual Property attorneys since I first put out an ad on Thursday September 14. My first ad I placed I believe was too frantic and specific so I sent out a different one on Saturday September 16. He was one of the first to answer, and to be honest, working on a weekend was impressive. His prices were also upfront and fair given his background knowledge in engineering and his experience. I personally found the fact that he has two separate engineering degrees impressive as well since he can call upon that experience, training, and knowledge in thinking about the creation or production of a product, if applicable. I emailed him a description of my idea and was enthused as I was. Although through some research we found similar ideas already produced they were different enough that we’re not quite sure whether to pursue the project or not, and he was very upfront with me about his opinion, and what to do and not to do. His appraisal of the situation was very honest and his opinion was to spare me a patent search which would have been costly, but which would have been beneficial for his bottom line. That showed character to me. Instead, he shared with me some other ideas and options for the product since although it had been made before, no one had ever really heard about it and it was not publicly known or in the public eye. Although I’m not sure where that initial idea of an invention will go, I have quite a few other ideas to explore and pursue and the Law Office of Paul B. Johnson is going to be my first place to go. I recommend you do the same. Good luck!
Attorney Daniel Irvin is professional, talented, thorough and trustworthy. He did a superb job handling my case. His fee was less expensive than other attorneys, and he reduced the amount quoted by 50% as the case took less time than he anticipated. Daniel Irvin is a fair and honest man.
I have hired Mark on more than one occasion. He is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated. He is on the forefront of the law and this age of communication. I appreciate being able to send a quick email to get answers, rather than trying to plow through assistants and staff members to get answers. He communicates directly with me, and I think it is rare to actually communicate with the attorney instead of their secretary. He does a great job, is compassionate and understanding, and explained things in a way that I could understand clearly. Totally worth it!
Working with Ryan Baxter was a pleasure. He was efficient, organized, answered all of my questions, and had great integrity with the way he handled my needs. He thought of things that I didn't, as has left me with the peace of mind of knowing that my assets are protected. Ryan is both honest and fair (not usually characteristics associated with attorneys). Highly recommend.
It was a pleasure to have my divorce papers filed by this company. If you, like me, got married young and never had any kids or assets, THIS IS THE PLACE TO HAVE YOUR DIVORCE FILED FOR A FRACTION OF THE COST OF AN ATTORNEY. Eudo is so personable and friendly, and his knowledge of the legal system in Salt Lake helps get things done quickly. My ex husband signed his half of the papers on March 12th, and our divorce was complete on April 1st. This might not be the same in your case, but for me it was great to have done in a timely manner. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone wanting to file for divorce without paying $1-3k for an attorney. These guys are awesome. -CKonold, Salt Lake City, UT
Mike is one of the most personable attorneys I have ever met, and he uses that gift, along with his litigation skills, to his clients' benefit. Excellent attorney.
Fantastic attorney. Settled on Matt after talking to some other attorneys. He was extremely knowledgeable, cared about my case, and clearly knew a lot about my charges. He seemed to know everyone in the courtroom. He got me an unbelievable deal. I hope I dont need him again but would call him if I'm ever in a jam.
Outstanding attorney - would highly recommend to my friends and family. Mr. Burt has provided sound counsel and professional legal services every time we've needed help. Many thanks to you and your staff for your integrity and professionalism.
Tineke Van Dijk helped me with a few things. She helped me write my pre-nuptial agreement and asked some questions that I hadn't thought of. She also helped me deal with a roommate who had defaced some property and skipped out on some bills. She's very professional and I go to her for all my lawyer needs.
My experience with linda and Michelle was amazing they were helpful honest and very fun to have as an attorney when you want to file now and pay later thanks again you two
During a horrid custody battle I thought there were no options left. I sought out Jeff Rifleman after a bad experience with another attorney. Jeff was Timely, professional, and took the time to really listen to my heartache over the situation that I was in. We came out strong and as a result I have a healthy , loving, reunited relationship with my daughter. I am forever thankful, and grateful for this fine man's help! Everyone should know!!!!!
Well after messing up bad on DUI, I couldnt be any happier after hiring Mike. He was able to reduce my charges to the point that it couldnt of have gotten any better. Best lawyer ever, I strongly recommend for any legal issues you may need. Want to thank you Mike for your awesome service and most importanly on payment flexibility. Took a lot of stress of my back and get my problem fixed. Thank you
Experienced , straightforward, and reasonable to work with.
McAdams Law gets the job done in a timely and profession manner. My experience with them was painless, and all tasks were taken care of with the client in mind.
I was really grateful for this service is that were rendered in my behalf. Without this Law Firm I would have been in a really bad place because of my divorce. Jamie knows his craft and had some really good pointers for me when working with a mediator. I would recommend using this law firm and Jamie for a divorce attorney. I would also mention that I believe Lisa was a great paralegal I communicated with her often and she was able to mention the deadlines and important dates.. She mailed out important documents to me as needed. I was taken care of!
If you find yourself in need of an Experienced, Skilled and Very Personable Attorney, you won't find one any better than Benjamin Kearns of BK Law. I recently found myself in the unfortunate situation of needing to file for divorce and not knowing any experienced family law attorneys I turned to the internet and spent several weeks researching local attorneys. Thumbtack came thru by linking me with Ben and I am so glad that they did. Ben patiently took the time to listen to my nightmare/situation and to get to know me and he listened. He understood my situation and needs in such a way that I knew without a doubt he was the lawyer I wanted by my side, protecting me and my interests. He listens and even though I know he has other clients, he gives me his undivided attention when I've had questions or needs as we've worked through this nightmare together. His experience and compassionate demeanor has helped relieve a lot of stress and anxiety. As another unfortunate byproduct of my marriage I had other legal needs that I without hesitation engage his services for as well. If you are reading this and are in need of an experienced attorney who you can count on to listen to you and protect you and your best interests, don't waste anymore valuable time trying to find a good attorney elsewhere. Ben Kearns is the best...HANDS DOWN!
This was a very informative and productive visit. Mr. Barnes provided a ‘menu pricing sheet’ and reviewed the details very thoroughly. This eliminated any surprises. The documentation was very thorough and detailed. And Mr. Barnes was very courteous and personable. All in all, this was a very productive, courteous, and cost-effective visit. I can recommend Mr. Barnes highly.
