3.0 stars 32 totalReview Jeffrey Feulner
Horrible , dragged everything out . Found ways to file motion after motion after motion to drive up my cost. Everytime I turned around they were needed $5,000 up front . They tapped me out and pushed me to the curb when I was begging for a payment plan to see my case for a final closure which at the rate they were working may have taken years ... I wouldn't recommend this firm EVER!!
Do your home work and research , this firm will take you for a ride...
Most people aren't experts when it comes to divorce and when children are involved - a lawyer is a must for those fighting for shared custody. Simply, Men's Divorce Law firm is all about the money. From the first introduction, you are required to pay $300 just to sit and talk with a lawyer. One isn't even given a choice to decide if you want to select this firm to represent you. I would prefer to be told up front the details of how much a divorce can cost and how long the process will take. I am a simple man who doesn't come from money and yet I paid over $15,000 for a divorce. This firm bills you for each and every E-Mail that they read and write. They bill you for each and every phone call and voice message they make. Legally, the lawyers and para-legals are excellent at what they do however, if cost is an issue - I would find another firm quickly. Good luck to anyone going through a divorce and fighting for child custody!
Jeffrey strikes at men during their most vulnerable state, when they are in the midst of separation, divorce and largely ignorant of how the legal system works. Naievely, I agreed to pay him an amount upfront and was stunned by how quickly he demanded adidtional payments. Being new to the "game", I continued paying until I eventually sought alternative counsel. I was charged more than 3X what he originally quoted and then eventually fired him and hired a new attorney. The new attorney was outraged at the excessive billing and minimal production by Jeffrey and his junior crew of assistants. Quite shameful and I do not want anyone else to experience what I did.

Thank You Jeffrey!
Without Jeffrey and his exceptional team, many Dads would NOT have had the opportunity to spend this special day with their children. Without his tireless work and dedication, the Fathers that put thier Faith in his Firm, would have been DENIED thier Day in the Sun. God Bless You and your staff, for Fighting the Good Fight.
You have been doing exceptional work on my Divorce Case.

I met with Mr. Feulner once, gave him my retainer then never saw him again. He never responded to my emails as he delegated everything to his associate attorneys. I felt my case was handled poorly and often favored opposing counsel. This law firm demonstrated very little effort into the discovery of financial information with opposing counsel.
The retainer agreement amount that Mr. Feulner personally advised on was nowhere near the projected cost of the case. Throughout the case, the cost more than doubled in size of the retainer agreement without having any major abnormalities. His associates openly admitted “it was just to get you in the door.” Mr. Feulner cannot give a realistic estimate for retainer fees nor stay within budget. When it comes to retainers, Mr. Feulner gave me one story and after retained I got another.
I was promised I would receive full financial disclosure of opposing counsel’s financials and he did not deliver. I ended up signing a settlement agreement with opposing counsel not fully disclosing financial information. I am curious if this was legal and will likely have a follow up to this.
As for international custody matters (HCCH), I did not feel as if the office was competent. I would not recommend this law firm to someone with child custody matters and overseas custody law issues.
Mr. Feulner also does not handle Qualified Domestic Relations Orders which should have been disclosed during my initial consultation as it caught me by surprise. Many attorneys refuse to process this part and they refer to an attorney that specializes in divorce cases. I recommend finding a Divorce Attorney who can also provide a QDRO. Mr. Feulner will happily provide a referral to a third party attorney for this service.
I did like the response to questions. If you have questions about your case, you will get a prompt response right away. Don’t worry, it will show up on your invoice too and sometimes 3 or 4 times depending on how many people get involved and forward it to.
When comes to disputes and mediation, his law firm DOES NOT defend or attack opposing counsel. I was disappointed how Paralegal was asking me minutes before mediation for records that generally take hours or days to produce. Mediation was poorly executed and the cost for errors was reflected back on me due to their lack of preparation and attention.
I noticed Mr. Feulner also spent a lot of his time blogging through social media sites rather than looking into my case. The office is decorated with several award ratings that Mr. Feulner is proud of but none of them are for an “A+” rating. After seeing the way my case was handled, I know you will never see an “A+” rating. It’s not because they perform poorly, it’s because they really just don’t care when all you need is a “C” to pass. I would not recommend this lawyer.

"Hired the Men's Divorce Law Firm and Jeffrey Feulner. Did very little work to help my legal case. I fired them and had to hire new counsel to help finish my case."

The legal team working the case were very knowledgable and responsive which was reassuring at a time when the future looked bleak. Would recommend MLF to any husband who needs someone to fight the legal battle for them.

MR. Feulner and his staff were always on top, very quick to respond and found all the correct answers so I was represented equal and fair. Equality for Men, that is what is Law Firm backs up. The entire staff was polite and understanding to all my questions and situations. If I could tell everyone, This is the firm to hire if you are a Man looking to get equal custody and a fair settlement.

The Never Ending Divorce is Finally Over
My current wife and I have partnered with Jeff Feulner and his law team at Men’s Divorce Law Firm on two occasions and have appreciated the professionalism and experience they bring to solving complicated family legal issues. Jeff is able to strategize in a non-emotional and collaborative manner to directly address the legalities of the situation rather than the surrounding drama. He said something in our meeting that really stuck with us: we defeat the motion, not the person. This statement helped shift the energy and reduce the stress level throughout the many months of filings, hearings, and waiting for the court’s decision. A great mantra for anyone in a similar situation!
In my case, there were immediate issues that needed to be addressed, but more importantly, I needed a clear guideline that could be used to mitigate future litigation, which was exactly the result of the court’s decision. I was pleased and satisfied with the outcome of my case and would definitely use Jeff and team again if the need arises, which I am happy to say is highly unlikely. In fact, I wish I had hired Jeff to facilitate my divorce proceedings, which probably would have eliminated the need to be back in court multiple times over the past seven years.
As some of the reviews point out the process is frustrating, mostly because like myself, the average person is not well versed in legal language, the legal system, and the amount of time it takes to wade through the process. Yes, it was expensive, and yes, you have to stay involved in coming up with the best defense, and yes, you have to ask a lot of questions, but it is in your best interest to do so, and the team will respond with their best advice based on what you provide for details and research and their legal expertise.
Men’s Divorce Law Firm is for you if you want a no-nonsense, big picture approach to your case, with a team that cares about the needs of your family situation, and who works in partnership with you to build a successful legal strategy.
