I found myself back in court fighting for our children's safety and custody after their father had been arrested for a DUI with them in the car. Mr. Tello gathered all of the info from me and calmly handled a one-day hearing; dotting every "i" and crossing every "t". In the end we won sole legal and physical custody. Mr. Tello is a child's best advocate; a responsible parent's best friend and a force to be reckoned with for the other side. Just give him the info, listen to his advice and carry on!
It is with immense gratitude and sincere pleasure that I write this review on behalf of Mr. Ariel Tello of The Tello Law Corporation.
I was in a bitter custody battle and fighting for the best interests of our young 2-year-old daughter when I found Ariel Tello. At my first meeting with Mr. Tello, I knew I had found a compassionate, caring, responsive and competent attorney that would he help me obtain the results I desired. Mr. Tello understands that divorce is a difficult ordeal for everyone and treated me with upmost professionalism and respect. While my daughter was very young, Mr. Tello believed based on the facts and what was in my daughter’s best interests, we had a strong case for a custody plan that would provide both the mother and I substantial and near equal parenting time.
Spending as much quality time as I could with my 2-year-old daughter was most important to me. My daughter’s mother was firm on providing a timeshare with me that was substantially lower than 50%, which I strongly believed was not in our daughter’s best interests. Frequency and quality of contact at this stage in our daughter’s life is critical.
Custody battles can take many months, sometimes years to resolve. After only two and half months of back and forth negotiations, attempts to settle outside of court and going to mediation, we had no choice but to go to court and let the judge decide our case. An enormous amount of evidence, prep work, testimony and detailed parenting plan proposals were required that Mr. Tello put together. Mr. Tello’s dedication, perseverance, and time spent paid of and I achieved my goal of ensuring that my daughter was able to spend a substantial amount of time with both parents, which is really in her best interests.
Mr. Tello was truly fighting for me and for what was in my daughter’s best interests. I know that Mr. Tello has two young kids and it has a strong impact on how he handled my case with fair, consistent and balanced legal advice. Mr. Tello really knows the Orange County court system and the various judges involved, which helped me to protect my family’s future.
As soon as Ariel took over my case, I felt like my case was important. I couldn't really ask more from a lawyer and would highly recommend him to someone I care about. Ariel is what lawyers should be. Immediate response, caring and informative attitude. My pleasure to write this review.
Amazing and patient attorney who actually listens. He is very knowledgeable and helpful.
