    • I recommend William Forbes.
    • I hired William 1-3 years ago.
    • William handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    I had been sent to Atty. William Forbes from another atty. who recommended Mr. Forbes to help me get divorced. I found Atty Forbes to be confident in the areas needed to get the whole process done without alot of drama and he advised me nicely as to how the process of divorce normally proceeds and as to the time line of how the required documents take place. He also helped negotiate the differences between the parties so that it would be less costly to me . In all matters Atty. Forbes was very professional and informative as to how the court system deals with divorce. The information helped me remain calm and he seemed very confident that all things would work itself out as long as I kept my wits about me and he helped put things into perspective so that I could remain positive and calm .I work an off shift and he accommodated my needs as to the times he could meet with me. I'm glad I went with Atty. William Forbes to handle my divorce and would tell any one to sit and talk with him about any court actions as he seems knowledgeable about other areas than just family matters, he also did my refinancing of the house due to the divorce and knew people to assist me in getting a mortgage quickly so things went smoothly.
    As a matter of fact the whole office staff worked with my case and were very helpful in assisting me in all the matters affecting my court dealings.

    Bill handled my divorce which had a number of complications and bumps along the way. He handled each one with fast accurate responses. He told me what to expect along the way and it ended exactly how he prepared me it would. He gave dedication to my case and was always well prepared every step of the way. I recommend Bill to anyone who may need a lawyer. He is very trustworthy and dependable.

    • I do not recommend William Forbes.
    • I hired William more than 3 years ago.
    • William handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Bill Forbes handled my divorce. This guy is a sarcastic, cookie cutter, type of lawyer. Always makes it look like he's doing you a favor by printing out on line forms and charge you 250/ hr to do it. He is totally uninterested in what you want. Gives no strategy or advice on how to proceed. Could really care less about your case... I wish his attention to my case was as good as his attention to inflating his bill...Save your time and money..

    I was a client of Attorney Forbes. I did not like his communication style which was sarcastic at times. Felt he was not well prepared and did not represent my interests well.
