Bill Blackford just recently helped me with a divorce. Not only is he highly competent as a lawyer he really helped me through some of the darker days during this case with his advice and friendship. If you want someone who takes an interest and is very prompt with his filings, this is the man for you. I hope I never need him again but if I do I would not hesitate to use Bill again.
Mr. Blackford was very helpful with preparing and executing a separation agreement.
I was particularly impressed that he focused on completing the work rather than running up his rate. My wife and I had already agreed to the terms, and Mr. Blackford was informed, pragmatic, and efficient in preparing the agreement and getting it signed.
I would highly recommend him for anyone else heading into a separation, and in general.
The rest of the staff was also excellent - responsive and professional.
I consulted with Bill on an appeal I took to Circuit Court. He told me all the things I should say and do, and all the things I should avoid. He was spot on. It was scary to go into court by myself, but I relied on what he advised, and it worked out in my favor. Bill saved me over $5000. He really knows his stuff, and knows how to communicate it. Wish I'd had his advice the first time it went to court...

William Blackford was the second attorney that I hired to review my marital situation and represent me. I felt that my initial attorney was dragging things out and taking advantage of the assets that I had. Mr. Blackford proved to be an honest man of his word in bringing this agreement to closure in a reasonable amount of time. During negotiations, Mr. Blackford knew the facts, addressed concerns, and basically created a relaxed, comfortable setting to promote trust. I honestly do not believe that anyone could have done a better job at presenting my case in an articulate, methodical manor the way that he did. I am completely satisfied with his services and would highly recommend Mr. Blackford to anyone needing counsel.

I met Mr.Blackford when my husband secured his services to write up our legal separation papers. Even though it was my husband who hired and paid for his services, Mr.Blackford was just as kind and courteous and professional to ME, making sure I was completely comfortable and understood everything that was being written and put in the separation papers. He is very easy to talk to, easy to understand, and is not intimidating whatsoever should you have a question or concern. I believe he truly cares about the well being of his clients and that they receive from him the very BEST care and attention he can give them. I would DEFINATELY recommend him highly should you need legal services.

Bill Blackford handled a divorce for me over the last year. I have to say that I could not have expected more from him. I was looking for things to go smoothly and stay amicable with the ex and he was very helpful in this regard even talking to my ex several times to assure her that we were looking to keep both parties happy through the process. He has also helped out a family member with a pretty challenging case in the city several years back and without him I am sure that my cousin would have had a much rougher go of things. I can recommend him without reservation.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Bill. His, and the entire Blackford & Flohr staff made an incredibly difficult/painful process very, very manageable. Bill's patience, compassion, reassurance and respect (in addition to his knowledge of the matter, the law and attention to detail) were very much appreciated.

Mr. Blackford was so instrumental in helping me get through a terrible housing dilemma. He counseled me and also referred me to Leslie Pladna and Tom Gill who kept me sane through this entire process. I recommend them highly and would be able to talk to possible future clients about their awesome service.

I have known Mr. Blackford for the past 9 years and he has always been helpful, trustworthy & taking his time to answer any questions I may have, no matter how big or small the case may be. I have personally recommend friends and associates to his office based off of the level of service and knowledge I have received from him.

When, as a healthcare professional, I had trouble finding a lawyer to help me fight a subpoena that inappropriately (I thought) demanded a patient's private medical/mental health records, Bill Blackford took the case, did his research, and successfully helped me to fight the subpoena so that I could protect my patient's privacy, as I am ethically bound to do. Since then, he has assisted me with other similar subpoena cases and has provided other legal advice related to my healthcare practice. He accepted payment directly from my professional liability insurer, which was very convenient for me. I would like to point out that Mr. Blackford took my initial case although it was not an area of specialty for him, but since I could not find another attorney willing to help, Mr. Blackford kindly stepped in. He was not deterred by the fact that he had to do some research; he researched related case law and shared that research with me, and considered the case from various angles; as a result I received excellent and customized service from him. In addition, he was responsive and reachable when needed, and stayed comfortably ahead of deadlines so that we had plenty of time to communicate when decisions needed to be made. If you have a challenging or unusual legal problem, I highly recommend Mr. Blackford. He continues to impress me as being smarter, more motivated, and willing to work harder than the average lawyer. Moreover, he is caring and personable, and is passionate about his work.
