    • I recommend Charles Montgomery.
    • I hired Charles 1-3 years ago.
    • Charles handled my Divorce & Separation matter.

    Mr. Montgomery is an excellent lawyer who I would recommend to anyone dealing with a divorce. He is very knowledgeable and knows how to cut to the chase and get things done. It’s not just his knowledge of the law . . . I’m sure there are plenty of knowledgeable lawyers around here. What made the difference was that he is very experienced and takes a common sense approach. This helped me get through a messy situation without doing things that would have hurt my case. He has a great staff that made sure nothing fell through the cracks. I definitely recommend Mr. Montgomery!

    • I do not recommend Charles Montgomery.
    • I hired Charles more than 3 years ago.
    • Charles handled my Family matter.

    In my opinion, he is interested in billing as much as possible, not in getting the best outcome for me. I do not recommend. I had to change lawyers and I found one who billed much more reasonably and achieved much better results.

  3. Very expensive and I got killed in court

    • I do not recommend Charles Montgomery.
    • I hired Charles more than 3 years ago.
    • Charles handled my Divorce & Separation matter.

    The judge ruled against me in every category. I could have walked into the court by myself and received the same judgement. I spent 45,000 or more and felt I lost.

    • I do not recommend Charles Montgomery.
    • I hired Charles 1-3 years ago.
    • Charles handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I employed Mr Montgomery for a simple divorce case. His fees were exorbitant. Employing Mr. Montgomery was detrimental to my case.

    Mr Montgomery is an extremely ineffective negotiator who is frequently out-witted by less experienced lawyers.

    Mr Montgomery is an expensive and very very slow lawyer who will over charge you and under-deliver - bottom line : Expensive & ineffective

    • I do not recommend Charles Montgomery.
    • I hired Charles 1-3 years ago.
    • Charles handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    This lawyer billed me an excessive amount of money and did not deliver one tangible result. In my opinion, he is not honest, does not communicate well, and has a long list of excuses and blame when unable to make progress. He is a very expensive lawyer, and before you know it will have billed you $40,000 or $50,000. If you query the expenses, he will suggest that you find alternative representation. AVOID
