In February 2014 I found myself in the midst of a contentious divorce, while at the same time fighting for the custody of my two minor children. As a father, I knew that the odds would be stacked against me, and to make matters even worse, my ex-wife had falsely accused me of doing some incorrigible acts in an attempt to gain an immediate advantage in the custody battle. I knew that in addition to having access to the best family law attorney possible, I knew that I would also need a litigator who could walk on water. I reached out to an old attorney friend of mine, and he referred me to Juliet Boyd of Boyd & Kummar. Everything that you see on this website with regards to her ratings is absolutely true. Juliet is not only the best criminal defense attorney in the state, but she is also brilliant in her knowledge with regards to all different aspects of law in general. For instance, I found particularly intriguing that despite being the best criminal defense attorney around, Juliet had experience in handling divorce cases and in dealing with DCFS investigations. Juliet’s role as a counselor to her clients has more meaning to her than just serving as their legal counselor. Juliet takes her responsibility serving as a counselor to her clients very seriously, which is very evident in how she prepares her clients for their court appearances, depositions, etc. Juliet was able to get me through my case, despite being a client who was not only undergoing the extreme stress of divorce, but a father who also feared the possibility of losing his two minor children. With the assistance of Juliet’s remarkable abilities and intelligence as my attorney, I was able to settle my case; a case which in the end provided me with sole custody of my two minor children. According to an article published by the US Census Bureau, only 18.3% of fathers serve as custodial parents of their children across the nation. Juliet took those long odds and flipped them on their backside, fighting for me at a time when I thought nobody else could. This is why I would recommend Juliet to anyone who needs someone in their corner during a time of need; she will fight for you until the end...and win!
I hired Ms. Boyd when I was falsely accused of battery by some neighbors. They banded together and conspired to submit false police reports, then repeatedly demanded a full blown trial even though the state's attorney wanted to drop it. It was surreal, here I am a local reputable businessman sitting in a suit in court as criminal defendant. I was not too worried about conviction though, I had Ms. Boyd. Throughout a three hour trial, she did an excellent job pointing out all the lies and inconsistencies in their case. She was extremely articulate, well prepared, and I could tell she commanded respect from others in the courtroom including the judge. When I was acquitted, the Judge said that he did not believe one word the neighbors said thanks to Ms. Boyd. We hugged and celebrated in the parking lot, I could really tell it was not just about legal fees with her. I knew I would not be convicted but it was still very stressful on my wife and I. I would (and have) recommend Ms. Boyd along with her partner Scott Kummer for any legal situation you have- she is my hero!
Juliet is an excellent attorney. She is highly intelligent and works hard for her clients. She is an excellent criminal, business and commercial lawyer as well as an amazing litigator. I endorse her whole-heartedly.
Ms. Boyd is an outstanding criminal attorney who came highly recommended to me. I am embroiled in a bitter and spiteful ( on the other side) child custody fight and Juliet Boyd has successfully represented me in two different cases where I was falsely accused by my ex. My child joint residential custody was at stake and Ms. Boyd prevailed, shined and made mincemeat out of their false testimony. she a heart of gold but is as fierce as a lion in the court room. I am about to retain her to represent us in a new business venture as well because of the integrity she has displayed. I wouls strong refer and recommend her to my closest friends and family
Last year I've gotten myself in a pickle with a DUI ; and at moments like this you always try to find someone who will be active listeners, understanding and sensitive of the stress and anxiety that came with such a situation . Boyd & Kummer , LLC was referred to me by a family member who spoke very highly of them.
I highly recommend Boyd & Kummer , LLC , the moment I walked in I never doubted that they honestly care about my situation and would provide the best possible legal representation that they could. Juliet work tirelessly and delivered results far beyond my expectations. Juliet knows the law and prepares meticulously. She has extensive knowledge of the legal process and I will be forever grateful to Boyd & Kummer, LLC for the way they handled my case with such professionalism and expertise.
Mrs. Juliet Boyd is a SUPER lawyer: highly intelligent professional with great rapport! I did my best to keep my daughter and give her the best in life with me, her mother. That caused my worst nightmares to come true. So when the happiest day and time of my life was ruined, I called Juliet. She was a referral from a childhood friend with an outstanding review. She didn't disappoint. Since that first time years ago, I have repeatedly sought council from Juliet for malpractice, vehicle tickets, child support, estate planning, child abuse, and business. If it's not in her jurisdiction, she has great referrals too!
I was very impressed by mrs Boyd knowledge base and confidents before and after evidence in my case was presented. I found her to be a soft yet very firm defense counsel for myself. I believed in mrs boyd reassurance and appreciated her open communication regarding my case. Mrs Boyd professional appearance and demeanor , are above standards in my book. I would definitely refer a client to mrs Boyd in present/future.
