Gardner has always done fantastic work for me. I first hired him for a pre-nup. His did an excellent job. He made the process easy for us both, and at the same time his work was very thorough. He suggested various extra steps for us to take to make sure our objectives were achieved -- this is something I appreciate when hiring a professional, someone who goes the extra mile, bringing additional value to the process. I never intended to use the pre-nup, of course. I married for what I thought was life. Sadly though, that day came. He was just as excellent throughout the divorce process. His work here was equally as thorough, and he also was very compassionate during that trying time. I would highly recommend Gardner for your family law needs!

I made the decision to hire Gardner as my lawyer in 2011, and he is STILL there for me today. He got me out of a terrible situation with my ex, and was able to get me everything I wanted. This man actually CARES about you, takes your case to heart, and puts up a Fight! He RAN CIRCLES around the other attorney, it was absolutely gratifying! Please do yourself and your family a favor and look no further, anyone else would be a huge waste of time (and money). Gardner is the man you want by your side during the most difficult time in your life. He is so different than any other lawyer, he became my friend. He will always be my first call in all legal matters. Thank YOU!

Gardner (he goes by Gardner but his name is Seaborn) helped me get through a separation and child custody situation that got messier as time went on. I was dealing with a same-sex partner who was disabled and bi-polar. Many times he had to deal with changes in verbal agreements right up until the actual signing of papers. It was CRAZY. Gardner told me upfront that this would be his first same-sex situation, but that he was very interested in learning more about it. He contacted former professors, re-read law books to find nuances, etc, to learn about the unique situation. He never once seemed frustrated or inconvenienced, even though we had to go to mediation for 7 hours on a Saturday. Once the mediation got going, he didn't back down and worked through everything so I got the house and the kids, and some support and the college savings plan - basically everything. I would hire Gardner again and recommend him to anyone who needs a knowledgeable, compassionate, yet fierce attorney. And - he worked out a payment plan with me!!!

I came to Me. Eastland when I needed help handling my divorce. Before I even hired him he agreed to review my case and help me. Once hired it took only a few weeks to come to a settlement and complete the divorce. Any questions I had during the whole ordeal I would text to him and get an immediate response. Even to this day, 4 months after my divorce was finalized, I can send him a text if I have any questions or need some advice. I highly recommend Mr. Eastland if you are looking for a great and reliable attorney to help fight for what you are looking for.

Gardner recently handled a minor case for me involving child custody that went very well. He's easy to get in to see or reach by phone, he listens, and he responds quickly to questions. My new orders were completed in about two weeks without any issues and the fees were practical as well. If I have any future problems that come up, I'll definitely use him again. I wish I had known him when I was going through my divorce. I think he's fair, and I like like that he makes suggestions and tells you like it is without sugar coating it.

My life became so much easier when my last lawyer did not work out and Gardner came to the rescue! Thanks to him what could have been extremely ugly was actually solved in a relatively respectful way. I thought his fees were beyond fair and generous. I know many lawyers try to take any dollar they get, but Gardner definitely was not like that. If you want a guy that will get the job done without making a huge mess of your case than hire Gardner Eastland.

I enlisted the services of Mr. Eastland for a prenuptial agreement in 2007 based on a referral. From first impression to execution he presented himself very well, was highly knowledgeable, and provided personalized counsel throughout the entire process. During the first office visit, I explained my situation and the goal for which I hoped to achieve through his services. Immediately, Gardner articulated the various options as well as a recommendation to ensure I was protected. The neat part was his ability to make both my wife and I feel comfortable from beginning to end. Considering the sometimes contentious nature of prenuptial agreements, I was impressed. Gardner has since provided an excellent referral to the attorney that put together our wills and children's trust.

I had absolutely no understanding of Family Law and with that, I had no idea which attorney to call when I needed a divorce. Gardner came highly recommended by several lawyers within, and outside, family law. I was in a terrible marriage and he completely became my voice and my advocate. He took all burdens off me and explained ever aspect of my case and explained possible outcomes. It was the hardest part of my life, but he helped me get to the other side. I couldn't have done it without all his help and compassion. I recommend him to anyone who is needing a divorce, especially if it will be a nasty one. He's the best!

I am a woman who had the fortune of having a friend that referred me to Mr. Eastland. I had absolutely NO knowledge about divorce, or what it entailed...I honestly never thought it would happen to me. However, in the ending months, I learned that my spouse had a very bad mental disorder, and when it came to divorce, he would be very difficult to deal with. In the beginning stages of my divorce, my thoughts were all over the place, and I was, for lack of a better term, freaking out. I discovered I was married to a sociopath. From day one, Mr. Eastland told me that family law was a 24/7 business, and was very interested in taking my case. Over a time span of a couple of months, he learned EXACTLY who I was dealing with, and soon became someone I knew was not only my attorney, but a friend who was concerned about everything that worried me. Divorcing a sociopath is an incredibly hard thing to do, but Mr. Eastland has shown me concern, and aggressiveness that is absolutely necessary when dealing with this situation. My marriage is not one that concerns a great deal of assets. It, under ordinary circumstances, would be a very basic divorce, minus the disorder. Mr. Eastland is very experienced with more detailed cases, with many more assets. However, in my case, there is the well being of a child at stake, and he took my case on with nothing less than 100%. My therapist even told me that in all of her years of practice and dealing with this disorder, she has NEVER seen an attorney as aggressive as mine, with my very best concerns at heart. From this point forward, even after my divorce is final, any of my family's legal matters that require a family law attorney will be completed by Mr. Eastland, and after my superb experience with him, I have many friends who are already seeking his legal counsel. Mr. Eastland is incredibly knowledgeable, and quick on his feet. I would recommend him highly to anyone in need of a good family law attorney.
