I retained Mr. Bishop to represent me in my divorce. I had worked with a previous attorney before, but because a friend referred me to Mr. Bishop, I decided to retain him. While Mr. Bishop seemed caring and genuine during our initial consultation, he quickly changed. I was going through a rough time and I was concerned for my future, but Mr. Bishop seemed to lack compassion, he was abrupt towards me, and he seemed annoyed by my questions. After I realized this, I returned to my former attorney who is treating me with much more respect and kindness. If you are looking for a compassionate attorney, I would urge you to look elsewhere.

My husband is involve witha child custody and support case. My teacher recommended Mr. Bishop to me. We schedule a meeting, he was on time, my husband and i couldn't believe how much this lawyer is respectable, dedicate to his job, clear with his explanations, knowing what to do. He read the minute entires in few seconds and he knew what should be done about the case.
He is the first and the only lawyer is not about money.
He is straight to the point. His advices are great and beneficiary. We are following all of them point by point.
We can't wait to work with him this coming few months. And we have a big faith that he is going to help.
We strongly recommend him to every person need to help with family matter. Just schedule one meeting and you understand all.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
William D. Bishop came highly recommended to me by another attorney that I had complete faith in. We have had two occasions to need an attorney since and have used the services of Bishop and Martin Law Office, P.C. and specifically William D. Bishop both times.
I have found Bill Bishop to be very knowledgeable, competent, dedicated, hard working, trustworthy, patient, kind, helpful and professional.
Mr. Bishop made the client/attorney relationship very comfortable. He was always on top of things and made sure that I understood what needed to be handled, how to handle my part and when to do so.
Our issues were regarding child custody. Mr. Bishop was completely understanding and sensitive to our needs.
There was never a question that I asked that he did not answer in a very respectful and thoughtful way and always got back to me within a very short period of time.
I don't think that anyone could have advised or represented me in any better way than he did. He appears to be very willing to do whatever it takes to take care of a legal problem in the most efficient and cost effective way for his client. He is very hard working - as are his associates. He always goes that extra mile.
I would high recommend Mr. William D. Bishop to anyone needing a bright, young, energetic, caring, knowledgeable, hard working, respectful attorney. If I need legal services regarding family law in the future I will definitely call Bill Bishop and ask him to represent me.

I wanted to write to you and thank you and your staff for an outstanding job you did on my divorce case. While most people hopefully do not need your offices services, you and your staff made the best of a very difficult time in my life.
I started with a different law firm and needless to say I was frustrated as I felt I was going nowhere and that my former attorney thought it was just best to give into my ex-wife's demands because it was easier than responding to her attorney via back and forth conversations and discussions. This is when I knew I needed a change. From the first day I met with you, I got the feeling that you were interested, focused and committed to my case. I had more of a dialog with you in the first one hour session than I did in four months with my previous attorney.
Once I started with you firm, you and your team were focused and committed in my case. Anytime I had an issue, concern or question with my case either you or Jackie were available to answer the question. If Jackie could not answer she would give you a message to call me back and I would speak to you within 24 hours. That's the service someone should receive in matters that have to do with time. You were also available via email which is a plus these days. Quick questions resulted in quick answers back. As we went to trail I could see that you were well prepared for court. One thing I really appreciated was your preparation work before trial. You had an agenda with me to make sure we were on the same page. Once we were in trial, you were focused on the issues at hand and asked the necessary questions to bring out the facts of the case and not the smoke and mirrors some attorneys try and illustrate.
In the end, I was very happy with the courts decision and I wanted to thank you for a job well done. I would also like to thank Jackie for her professionalism through out the process as well. She was a delight to work with. While I hope that I do not need your services again, if I have any issues I will not hesitate to come back to you and your firm for future services.
