    Awesome: Wish I had found him 20 years ago: Child Support Settlement

    This man knew what what we were facing / what was coming down the pipe with the state. He had no despair or cold feet about performing the job. He knew the personalities of various judges, and various State Attorneys, how they would react, what they would tolerate, and what they would not. And was able to better prepare for that situation, in the manner which that judge wanted to see it. When hiccups with the judicial system came along (rescheduling dates, and so on) he promptly informed me of everything which was going on. If I didnt understand something that was going on with the case, he took the time to explain it twice or three times until I understood. He always had someone there to "on time" represent the case no matter what. He was always able to be reached, and always responded to my voice mails and messages. Everything he does electronically is safe and secure. He was definitely affordable and did not try to get an extra fee for every little thing that came across the table.. ( he didnt play the game of bait nibbling when you go fishing). If there were extra fees, he let me know well in advance that it may cost a little more to do this or that. Yay or Nay? If not we can try to find an alternative route. He was fair to both sides of the fence. He knew what the state would tolerate, and what they would not. When negotiating a settlement, he always took the best interest of me and my child at heart rather than just my best interest. Which, in alot of support cases, parents tend to get tangled up in the dagger throwing contest. David did not let that happen and took measures to explain why or why not he was doing things the way he was.

    Extremely trustworthy and competent

    Attorney David Gotzh is a highly knowledgeable, trustworthy, insightful, and supportive advocate. My case had languished in the hands of my original attorney. Attorney Gotzh took over my case and oversaw its resolution in a timely manner. He deftly explained every step of this exhausting and difficult process in laymen’s terms, ensuring that I understood every aspect of my case. He kept me apprised of every development in my case and replied to all my correspondence immediately. I would never wish this process on anyone, but if it must be done, I would definitely recommend having him in your corner. Excellent work, Attorney Gotzh! I can’t thank you enough!

    Awesome Lawyer

    Highly recommend! He was able to take my case from my ex contesting everything, to just getting it done. He helped me end my 17 year marriage in 4 months. I told him I wanted out, and he got it done quickly, and I was able to move on. Great many thanks.

    don't bother

    He is not expensive, but that is the only advantage. Him, along with other two lawyers, screwed up my case so badly that it was very difficult to fix it.
    I was divorcing for the first time and I fully trusted him at the beginning until I found out that he doesn't answer my questions fully, he is very difficult to reach, he is lying. Imagine this, on pretrial he managed for my passport to be taken away as I was a flight risk. Many people and lawyers I talked to since then said that they never heard this happened in a divorce case. So, save yourself a trouble and find a good lawyer.

    David Matthew Gotzh’s response: “I know exactly which case this is. But iARDC ethics rules bar me from even discussing this case in a public forum - otherwise to do so would be to violate their attorney/client privilege. What I will say is this. 95% of the time, I represent good clients. But every so often, I get that 5% where 1) everything I say goes over their head, 2) they demand highly unrealistic outcomes, or 3) they believe I have a duty "win" by ANY means necessary (to include lying to a judge). I like money, as does any other lawyer, but not at the expense of my reputation and/or law license. Again, I can't speak to this case, nor will I. I'm glad this person finally got what they wanted, however that person managed to achieve it, and I wish that person the best.”

    A rare top-notch, tough, no bs attorney...

    David is easily the most straight forward and honest attorney I have ever dealt with. He is tough and keeps things simple. A true rarity in the legal world today. I cannot recommend him more highly.

    Great Attorney

    I hired MR Gotzh to represent me concerning my child support case. i had a consultation with him prior to my court appearance and he clearly and honestly explained to me what would be taking place in my upcoming and future court appearances. Mr Gotzh made it easy for me to understand the court jargon which is hard for many of us to understand especially if you are unfamiliar with child support laws. My first court appearance, that Mr. Gotzh handled, went very well. I am very pleased with his services thus far and highly reccomend Mr Gotzh to anyone looking for a knowlegeable family attorney.

    Exceptional Attorney that is honest, genuine, & willing to do everything necessary to have your c

    If you are looking for an extraordinary, extremely knowledgeable family law attorney, your search is OVER! Attorney Gotzh is intelligent, hardworking and honest. Best of all, he is affordable and flexible. He is not an attorney that is out to increase his wealth by decreasing yours. He has your best interest at heart. He will not mislead you. He is very thorough, keeps you aware of what is happening with your case and simplifies complex issues in an effort to make sure that you clearly understand what’s going on. He is detailed, attentive and keeps communication lines open. He is always available.

    This was my first experience with Family court and he made it an easy process. I am the mother of an autistic child and he was willing to go above and beyond to make sure that I maintained custody of her. I have been the custodial parent since birth. Unfortunately in Feb of 2011, her dad decided that he wanted to lower his child support, claim her on his taxes and gain joint custody. This was just an excuse to relieve his financial obligations. Initially, I went to court without representation and the judge was unable to see through my child’s other parents antics. I knew that I had to do something about this. Thank God I found Attorney Gotzh. Attorney Gotzh saw right through it and did what was necessary to result in me maintaining custody. Due to his superb representation, I won the case. I will forever be grateful for finding Attorney Gotzh.

    I was extremely afraid and clueless when I posted my question/inquiry on Avvo in March. However, I found attorney Gotzh and I knew that he was heaven sent. During a time of extreme turmoil, Attorney Gotzh came and saved the day. I definitely recommend him!

    Exceptional mastermind bringing justice and happiness!

    David is truly a savior! As I was threatened and feared any possibility of my child being taken from me, he comforted me with his extensive knowledge to such situation instantly. I am far from a millionaires financial status and his fees are unbelievably suitable for needing an expert attorney that seeks bringing your hopes, and prayers to reality, for an amount that doesn't leave you penny pinching. The rapport that was established from our first phone conversation convinced me that I no longer need to search, I have found "the one". My case, like all, was a very special one, not to mention after me finding him online only 24 hours prior to my scheduled Emergency Trial ( the following morning )- he was at the courthouse and fully prepared to represent me. After reading his reviews from previous clients scenarios, I wished for similar outcomes, a quick one day court appearance to case closed. Wouldn't you know it- I have now been another successful case of his! In one visit! He is prompt, trustworthy, understanding, and eases all worrisome thoughts from beginning to end. I can not thank him enough for the miracle he's created, the stress and fear he's removed, and the hope he's given, that nothing is impossible. It is true that you hope to not need a lawyer repeatedly, however in the event a problem presents itself, I will NOT hesitate to call David Gotzh to readily represent me. Remarkable job David Gotzh!!!!! Thank you so much!

    Best Attorney in 10+ Years

    For the first time in over 10 years, I finally feel that I was well represented, and that includes two of the 'big' firms downtown. Gotzh was quick to understand the facts of this case as well as the background situation. He then explained what the various options were and what the risks were of each option. He allowed me to make the call on which option to go with. He was honest and upfront with what could happen and the reasons behind it. Best of all....he did what he said he would do AND he did it by the deadlines we agreed on. I feel that I have finally found the right attorney
