I have a little more experience with attorneys than I probably should, as my custody and child support issues were ongoing for about 8 years, through multiple states. When an extremely negative issue affecting my child during visitation with the non-custodial party was discovered through professional services, the "lawyer hunt" began once again, in a new state to us. After discussing the case with several attorneys who vaired in approach and experience, my own personal experience pointed me toward Kelly Garret-Hicks. As it turns out, I've learned something over the years about good and bad counsel, and my trust was well placed in Kelly. For as difficult as our situation was, Kelly handled all things with complete professionalism, composure, and compassion. Her knowledge of local area procedures was an asset, as was her grounded approach to issues. While a case's outcome is not always 100% representative of counsel alone, I do believe that Kelly navigated rough matters quickly, and with efficiency that is rarely found in counsel these days. Kelly is well versed in family issues, and her advice is centered on realistic, goal-oriented informtion that is consistent with law and best interests. Representation by Kelly brought an end to years of courtroom combativeness, and I think anyone would be making a good decision to have her as an advisor.
Empathetic, fighting for your rights, and listens to what your needs are to help determine the best interests of your child or divorce proceedings. By far one of the best attorneys I have ever had/known.
Kelly is a wonderful lawyer. She has enough empathy to understand your situation, as well as, advocate for your needs according to the law. Kelly is fantastic at giving reasonable advice, being realistic in her explanations relative to client's goals, and is responsive to the situation at hand. Kelly has handled my custody issues and has exceeded all my expectations. While my situation is slightly more difficult than the typical custody dispute with ornate issues, Kelly has handled it smoothly and aggressively when need be.
I would recommend her to any family law issues that anyone has. Having been around and worked with other attorneys, she is one of the very top.
My custody battle was recently handled by Kelly. Kelly was very passionate and aggressive in helping me obtain the custody I was looking for. Kelly treated me like I was her main priority and always kept me up to date. Kelly also billed me very honestly, I had run into some questionable billing with previous firms. I would highly recommend Kelly to anyone looking for a family attorney.
I had such a positive experience working with Mrs. Hicks. She was very knowledgeable and took the time to listen. I felt she truly cared about my situation. Mrs. Hicks was professional, yet friendly, which made my experience of working with her very comfortable. She continuously kept me informed and I never had any issues reaching her when I had a question. I felt she was always well prepared and assertive when needed to be. Because of her commitment and passion to see my case through, I would proudly recommend Mrs. Hicks to anyone.
Kelly is one of those special people that actually takes the time to get to know her clients and you never question if she has your best interests at stake. She listens to your needs and is quick to provide her feedback. I would recommend her to anyone. Her work is very professional and I wouldnt want to deal with anyone else.
