Posted by a Family client,
Stacey is an excellent attorney who really cares about your case. Aside from being an expert on Family Law, she understands the difficulties that you are going through and shows deep compassion during such a difficult time. She's flat out the best around.
Posted by Jeff and Kerri,
Thank you for being our strongest ally. Our family has been using you since 2008. We have had three cases in the past year and you constantly show prepared and ready to fight for us and what you think is just. There is a difference between knowing how to be passionate, and being passionate about what you know. They say a good lawyer should separate law and emotion, but it is the balance of emotion you provide that wins your cases. You are quick on your feet, you continue to study the law and changes in the community and you never let the opposing party get ahead of you. In addition, you’re communicative about how we can be better prepared ourselves. We are currently in the middle of a trial that will literally change the lives of several people, a young one in particular. We are fully confident that you will be ahead of you opponent and bring justice to the families involved as you have done many times before through your knowledge, professionalism, repor, experience and passion.
You’ve gained clients and partners for life.

This is the content of actual email I sent to Stacey:
Stacey, of course, you know I very much appreciate your efforts to finally get me divorced. However, you may not know what about your work I have valued so much. It is wonderful to have an attorney who is not only professional, but personable; one who stays in touch, is always within reach, and is excellent at explaining the law and recommending what can work best to meet my needs. Perhaps most of all, there's the sense that you really care. It is so rare these days to find such a quality in people, particularly those who serve for money.
Thank you for being not just an attorney, but an honest advisor and partner! May you never lose the special gift of caring for those you serve!

Dear Stacy B Rice:
I cannot thank you enough for the heroic efforts you made on my behalf in my divorce. I cannot pay you enough either. (really, I cannot sorry.) As Dave Ashley Said when he referred me to you, "there is a very simple rating system for lawyers: a lawyer is the best, or, second best, or not worth rating. " You are the best." Gaining the custody of my son Sam was more than i ever expected. I should be much better able to protect and insulate him from "issues" Thanks to you.
Mr. Jonathan B Srisatta
Comments and story line:
Reality finally sits in, unbelievably so, I can't get the trial out of my mind, how you Ms. Rice have been with me through all of this, from start to finish, never putting your pen or keyboard at rest. I am amazed how you went up against opposing council, who during the trial flanked you, two veteran lawyers on your left and one in the audience. It was literally you vs. 3 lawyers and a judge who challenged every objection you made consistently. But you Stacey Rice did not falter, you stood up and gave 110% in the courtroom. During trial preparations I told my witness's " to make them feel at ease" that do not worry when you approach the stand, Stacey Rice will brandish her shield of justice and protect you, guide you up there, you are not alone i said"
Yesterday i went to the local gym i frequently go to, a lot of people there that know me, know that i have been going through this and told me a long time ago that justice when harnessed correctly will be served. My reply to the patrons at the local gym was "if you see me with my son on Thursday walking through the gym then that is a good sign" As i walked in the gym with the happiest 8year old one could see. People at the gym actually started to applaud us as i gave them the thumbs up... truly amazing!! At that moment reality sat in and i realized that a well gifted Attorney COMMANDS THE RESPECT OF THE COURTROOM.
end of story.. thank you for reading this.

Stacey was just fair in my case. She didnt keep me up to date on a few important matters. There were a few times she didnt get back to me in a timely manor either when I needed her. She was knowledgeable on custody issues.

Stacey did an incredible job with my case. She really reviewed all the facts, listen to my side of the story, worked with people she knew to get a good background and fought very well. We ended up being able to add it into the "win" category!

One of the first things Stacey said to me was "I don't want your money, I want your kids to have your money". She proved that by the efficient way in which she handles her cases.
I can't express in words how great Stacey is in handling divorce and custody issues. She is an incredible multi-tasker, keeps everything organized and kept me from letting my emotions cloud my judgement. Near the end of our negotiations, I told her that I had to step back from the situation and that she had full power to do what she thought was best. She saved me a lot of money!

After experiencing inadequate representation from a previous attorney, I was referred to Stacey Rice to handle two cases, criminal and divorce/custody. I immediatly felt a sense of relief and security after our first meeting due to Stacey's professional conduct, demeanor, knowledge and frankness. She was empathetic in regard to my turmoil, yet calm, honest and forthcoming in addressing the issues at hand. She took the reins and immediately began navigating through the matters associated with my cases in an expeditious and confident manner, a trait that Stacey has consistently exemplified since our introduction. More importantly, she provided me with a solid sense of security that I finally had the right person in my corner who was a strong advocate for me, my child and our best interests. I have and will continue to refer anyone seeking counsel to Stacey Rice. I am sincerely grateful for her dedication.
Posted by a Child Custody client,
Stacey did a great job for me. I had received poor advise from another attorney and had an unfavorable outcome during my divorce. I turned to Stacey and I was able to more visitation with my kids. Thanks!!
Posted by a Child Custody client,
Ms. Rice was recommended by a co worker also going through the court battle to get more visitation with his children. I have been 100% satisfied with Ms. Rice's services. I have found her advice to be sound and realistic. She has not made promises or given false hope in areas of my case which are not as strong as others. She has kept me informed of updates in my case and has made herself available to answer questions when I would least expect a return call or email, such as late evenings or weekends. I am more than appreciative of the effort Ms. Rice has put into resolving my issues and am very satisfied with the outcome thus far. I would definately recommend her services to anyone seeking to take on modifying custody agreements or child support issues.
