I contacted Joan reference a divorce issue. Joan walked me through the process and advised me on how to handle the issues and what the possible pitfalls might be. Joan communication skills were excellent. She called when she stated she would and answer emails promptly. Joan did an excellent job of writing a response to a motion and counter motion which were well received by the court. I would recommend Joan on any family law matter you might have.
Joan has helped me with my child custody case for the past year and I couldn't imagine a better attorney for the job.
Such a case requires you to put nearly every personal thing you have about your life on the table and I couldn't ask for a more professional and trustworthy attorney to handle such a matter for me.
She responded quickly to every email I ever sent her and patiently answered all my questions, eased my concerns and kept me informed throughout every step in the process, a most important courtesy when going through such a difficult time.
She has worked hard and efficiently with me to ensure that I had the best possible shot in court and represented me very well when the day finally came.
As for the money, a good family law attorney is going to be relatively expensive... it is a field that requires loads of knowledge, experience and time. At least you get what you pay for with Joan, and without "surprises".
My partner and I retained Joan to assist us with working out parenting time and legal custody for our son that we share with another couple. Through the entire process of working out the proposed parenting plan, Joan was extremely knowledgeable and confident. She went out of her way to educate us on every step of the process, next steps and what to expect. She is prompt to return emails and phone calls, which is a huge plus when dealing with time sensitive and at times, and emotional situations. Throughout everything, Joan handled the situation with the upmost professionalism. We highly recommend her for working with same sex parents or opposite sex parenting plan needs.
Joan was very professional while handling my case against an attorney that was less then ethical.
Joan held her ground and remained confident the entire time.
Joan Bundy thoroughly investigated my case and always had time to listen to and address my concerns. She is and has been very organized and keeps up to date with details regarding my case. She also has taken swift action when it has been necessary. I would highly recommend Joan Bundy if you are looking for an assertive, capable and compassionate attorney.
From day one, Joan has been right on top of things, keeping me up to date on what has been happening, whether it be an email or a phone call. She has shared what the next step would be and what I could expect. Before every appearance, she worked with me, sharing what I might see happen in the courtroom. Following leaving the courtroom, Joan and I would sit in the hallway and she would explain what just took place inside. Then we would talk about what we would be doing next. She has been verry patient and und3rstanding with my individual situation. I would highly recommend Joan to anyone.
I was a client of Joan Bundys. When I went to see Joan about my case and I gave her 1000.00 for her to type appeal paperwork for me. Joan told me that would be enough for her to type paperwork for me. When received my final bill from Joan (me thinking it should be at zero) it was for 2000.00 more. When I questioned Joan she stated she needed outside help. Her contract states that if she runs out of money she will contact you for further monies before she proceeds with your case. she did not contact me. Thus costing me 2000.00 more.
Although Ms. Bundy is a very nice person, she was ill prepared during my case and when all was said and done, I would have been better off to just do the work myself. There were some very obvious things she had missed and even the judge had pointed them out.
I had a somewhat complicated case & not knowing Arizona law that well as I'd just moved here 6 months before, Joany became invaluable not only as a guide, but also as a friend. I was facing a couple of different legal as well as medical problems and Joan was always very patient, doing what I asked unless there was a specific or strategic reason not to. Her patience with me not only helped win both legal cases, but has allowed me to start getting back on my feet. My case was complex enough I don't think it would have been fair to ask for a flat rate, but if what you have is typical, you may want to ask about this.
Joan Bundy is a family attorney who is very dedicated to her profession and is becoming a force to be reckoned with.
If you want an attorney who is honest to a fault and dedicated to her profession, there is non better.
Even though Joan is fairly new to her practice she is willing to research every case and ask for assistance when she is not entirely sure how to proceed. These qualities are as rare in an attorney as they are in a medical doctor. I think Joan is a good attorney principally because she is willing to ask for assistance of others who are older and wiser than she in able to give her clients the best possible outcome. Some attorneys are not willing to ask for assistance from those who are more experienced because of pride but, Joan will.
