While I certainly hope that I do not require Mr. Redmond's services in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to retain his legal assistance again should the need arise. He was informative, responsive and what I most appreciated, he will not beat around the bush. He is straightforward while maintaining a professional demeanor. Unfortunately I was under a time constraint. While he acted immediately and drew up the necessary paper work he did not fail to explain any potential scenarios that could arise which would delay the divorce from being granted. Two other attorneys I interviewed guaranteed my deadline will be met with no hesitation, I knew this was a promise that could not be 100%. Mr. Redmond knew this as well thus prepared me of potential situations that could occur. My questions were always answered clearly and I never felt like I did not know what was going on with my case. I am positive he went above and beyond to help me meet my deadline. He is experienced and knows divorce law, and I could easily tell from my hearing that he has earned the respect he deserves as a lawyer for divorce and family law.

I received more information from Vance in a free consultation than previous attorneys. He looked up my case and informed me of the divorce process and asked questions that helped guide me on how to move forward before I hired him. Vance was always responsive to my emails even late nights and weekends. He was non emotional, clear in his communication and stayed focussed on the facts and not the drama. Compared to my previous council I felt secure and confident that Vance had my best interest in mind. I have worked with other attorneys involving my husbands previous wife , they were not as informative as Vance. It has been a hard road for me and it is not over. If needed in the future Vance will be my first choice as council.

A friend gave me Vance's contact information and I am so thankful he did. I retained Vance during a critical time in my case after having a really bad experience with my first attorney. Vance handled my custody agreement, contempt order and my divorce. He made himself readily available and worked quickly and smoothly to transition the case from my previous lawyer to him. He was informative and responded quickly to requests for information and assistance. I was reassured many times during endless stressful situations by Vance's quick e-mail responses. This was the most stressful and awful time of my life and I was lucky to have a lawyer who I could depend on. I made sure he knew what I wanted and he made sure to advocate accordingly for me. Vance always did a great job of listening and helped navigate me through the mess of the court system. He is a true professional and always speaks and dresses accordingly. He was aggressive and persistent when we needed to be and patient and calm when needed. Vance did a great job of working with me to provide me as much information as I requested and keeping me informed about everything . He listens and was also respectful of my time and money and that is rare to find in the sea of attorneys. Vance helped me stay involved without losing anything. He brought justice to me and my family and there is nothing more I can ask for.

I would give Vance Redmond the highest recommendation without reservation. One of the first things Vance told me was, "you just worry about being a good doctor, and I'll handle your legal issues." True to his word, he instilled confidence in me. He was amazingly responsive and did everything he said he would do in a timely and thorough manner. He took charge of my case, invested the appropriate amount of time obtaining the relevant facts, and then he figured out the optimal approach and executed the plan. I could not have been more pleased. I would say that the most important thing I got out of our professional interactions is peace of mind that my legal issues would be handled as well as could be (and that is priceless!). I have worked closely with well over a dozen lawyers in the past, and I would easily put him at the top of the list!

I had a difficult case concerning custody of my children after my husband left and filed for divorce. I had spoken with several attorneys in several counties and consulted with even more before deciding to go with Mr. Redmond. He was one of the few who really listened to my concerns in addition to having confidence that I could get my kids back (had an unofficial nearly 50/50 schedule that was too difficult on my young children). Every attorney I consulted with in my county practically threw their hands up in defeat concerning the current schedule, stating there was nothing I could do to change it, leaving me feeling like it was hopeless. Not Mr. Redmond. He was confident things could be changed, and almost immediately upon hiring him, they were! He took the bull by the horns and with his expertise, formulated a plan and gave me the courage to carry out what I needed to do. He was aggressive, which I appreciated and needed in the beginning; and yet, when I explained that my intentions were not to destroy my husband in any way, he understood completely and handled matters of correspondence with the opposing party with grace, finesse, and an "easy going" attitude, while maintaining a strong initiative to protect my rights, which I also greatly appreciated. Due to Mr. Redmond's representation, the judge ordered custody, support, and alimony in my favor following our court case. Despite the circumstance, my relationship with my husband progressed in a positive direction and upon Mr. Redmond's insight and initiative, my husband and I found ourselves discussing reconciliation (an answer to my prayers). I found Mr. Redmond to be highly adaptable, honest, straight forward and eager to ensure my satisfaction. My ratings of "good" rather than "excellent" above are for the following reasons:
A) While Mr. Redmond was highly knowledgable, he was unprepared for some minor differences in the way my county handled matters compared with what he was familiar with in Montgomery County; however, it had little bearing on how the case proceeded in court.
B) Mr. Redmond was generally very responsive to email correspondence, though I did ask a few questions that went unanswered (these were not imperative to the case necessarily, but inquisitive of possible scenarios). I also felt slightly unprepared for the court appearance due to less preparation than we planned as some matters that needed his attention concerning another one of his cases came up at the same time. These are the reasons I gave the "good" rather than "excellent" rating above for keeping me informed.
In all, I was satisfied with Mr. Redmond's professionalism, service, and results. He was personable and flexible, experienced and confident - a good attorney to have on my side. I would recommend him to anyone needing legal help.

I found myself living 500 miles away, needing a family law attorney. I can't tell you the stress that causes. I started checking on line for attorneys and spoke with several, but I just didn't feel comfortable with them handling my case. I was very fortunate to finally talk with Mr. Redmond. I explained my custody / visitation needs and my concerns about living so far away and having to rely on someone, I could not meet face to face. I can tell you, I made the right choice, having Vance represent me. He kept me informed, via email, phone and fax. Vance responded promptly to my concerns reducing alot of the stress I was feeling. When I finally met Vance the day before my court appearance, he went over the entire case and what could be expected. On the day of court he was able to resolve my case in only 3 hours, I had been dealing with these same issues for the past 10 years! If you need a family law attorney, you can trust Vance to work hard for you, he definitely worked for me.

Mr. Redmond is one of the best attorneys I have met. He knows the law and informs his clients of everything they need to know. He is patient and kind and explains every detail about your case before going into pretrial, trial etc. He knows the law very well and is very informative and keeps his clients informed of every matter regarding your case. He

Mr. Redmond handled my child custody and divorce in Anne Arundel County. I owe him more than money could ever pay. My maintaining custody of my children and being granted an absolute divorce can be directly credited to Mr. Redmond's aggressive and knowledgeable approach to my case. The opposing party would never had settled if it weren't for the pressure put on them by Mr Redmond. I was also impressed with Mr. Redmond's extensive familiarity with my personal situation and my case. We communicated on a regular basis and he was always quick to respond when I needed guidance. When we talked, he never needed me to catch him up or remind him of details. He was always on top of it and knew exactly where we were and what I was talking about. He always discussed our options with how to proceed forward to ask for my input and how I wanted my case handled. I was always involved and included in all decisions and courtesy copied in all emails. In summation, I was blown away by Mr. Redmond's knowledge, professionalism, aggressive approach, dedication, and communication skills. I hope to never need his services again but should I find myself in that situation, I will absolutely call him. I've already personally recommended him to two good friends of mine!

I have worked with several attorneys, and what stands out about Vance is his professionalism and high ethical standards. Not only is he exceptionally competent, but you will always know that he is working in your best interest, and you will be fully informed regarding the specifics of your situation and process. This matters a great deal, as many attorneys don't spend the time/effort educating their clients and helping them get comfortable with the process. It's also important to note - Vance is well spoken and not easily rattled, which matters, if you end up in court. I have no hesitancy in fully recommending Vance for anyone considering, or going through a divorce situation.

My experience with Vance Redmond was more than pleasurable. He got results for me that well exceeded my expectations. In my opinion he is the best attorney in the world. He worked very hard on my case to get me the best results possible. He was available when I needed him the most. He returned my phone calls diligently. He kept me abreast about all new developments in my case. He was very proactive. His strategy was carried out without flaw. I would highly recommend Vance Redmond to any parent who is going through custody issues in the court system, especially fathers.
