I hired Dan after attempting to file what I believed was a simple custody and support arrangement regarding my then 2 year old daughter. Her mother had started refusing to allow me to see her, even though I had been sending her money to help with my daughter's expenses. I filed the initial paperwork and attended the first mediation on my own, believing that it would be simple. We were only together a short time but were not married, and I wanted to help raise and provide for my daughter. Unfortunately, her mother wanted me to provide for both of them and was determined to keep me out of my daughter's life until I agreed to her demands. I hired Dan because I quickly found out that the system favors mothers, and despite my intent, I was not going to be a part of my daughter's life if I didn't get legal help. Dan put me at ease right away. He worked closely with me over the next few months attempting to come to an arrangement that worked. Unfortunately, my daughter's mother held her position, and ultimately we had to go to court. My daughter's mother was extremely unreasonable and grasping at straws, making her volatile and unpredictable, but Dan was prepared for every possibility. His knowledge and professionalism kept me and my then fiancé calm and collected throughout the process. In the end, not only did Dan negotiate true 50/50 shared custody and cost sharing, but due to his presentation of the facts, I picked up my daughter the very next day. This was more than I could have hoped for after 7 long months of not seeing her at all. I highly recommend Dan as his expertise guaranteed me the chance to help raise my daughter and ensured she is part of my family as well as her mom's.
Mr. Bachert is very professional, through & knowledgeable. I was recommended to go to Dan in the middle of my divorce as the lawyer I had was horrible and put me in a bad spot. I wish I would have found Dan from the start and I would have had a totally different outcome. He is knowledgeable and looks at all angles. He provided me with advice throughout and was always quick to respond. I have already recommended him to my closest friends. I absolutely give him my full recommendation.
Daniel Bachert was a huge help to me with post divorce issues. Even during the consultation, Dan was able to provide me with useful information on my case which a previous lawyer had failed to inform me of. Dan then went on to represent me in court and the outcome was favorable. I wouldn't have been able to navigate through the law system without him. Divorce and post divorce issues can be unpleasant however Dan made this experience more manageable. My issues were settled quickly and without hassle. Dan did a fantastic job and you'll be happy you called him!
I am very satisfied with the professional service that was provided by Dan Bachert, he is very knowladgeable, almost always available (quick to respond when requested), and very attentive to his client's needs.
As a member of a court watchdog, I've seen many family attorneys at work in the Palm Beach area. I've been fortunate with my family attorney selection (I've only engaged Mark Frumkes, then later Dan Bachert, both excellent attorneys), however I've witnessed much incompetent and downright unethical behavior by other local lawyers. The biggest complaint people mired in family court have is that their attorney never files anything on time. A slightly more understated complaint is that their attorneys are unreachable.
Neither of these issues occur with Dan. Accustomed to lethargic response times from courts and attorneys, I was surprised when Dan filed all motions within 24 hours of discussion. More importantly he and his staff were diligent about keeping me informed case status. Because judges and judicial assistants rarely take citizens seriously enough to answer questions about their cases, having an attorney who can get answers and move things along is important.
I also cannot say enough about Dan's knowledge of the law. Too many times, attorneys will give erroneous advice, or suggest that your position is correct, when it isn't. Dan accurately predicted the course and outcome of my case.
Having been through a perilous divorce, you appreciate (or bemoan the absence of) certain qualities of attorneys. In my case, Dan was virtually perfect. I hope to never need a family attorney again, but if I do, Dan is the first I will call.
My family has used the services of the Bachart Law Firm on two different occasions and I was pleased with his services. Dan is one of a very few attorneys that will answer his telephone at 7:30 at night. For that I am very grateful. He is knowledgeable in all aspects of family law; can be sensitve when necessary but hard as nails if needed. Very quick thinker.
