Mr. Seidel handled all aspects of my divorce case from discovery and custody disputes, the enforcement of orders, as well as a lengthy appellate court process after the other side lost after a lengthy trial. Mr. Seidel was professional, prepared and a tremendous advocate throughout the entire process. We prevailed at trial and on appeal.
Joel has been my ONLY lawyer for the last 6 painful years of my dissolution and divorce and brutal custody battle. Joel has not only been a great lawyer but also a trusted friend and advisor. He always sought to settle the myriad of issues that arose in the course of the divorce in a peaceful way. It was only that all other options were fully exhausted did he opt for the path of litigation. During the vicious custody battle - he stood with me as we eventually won full custody. And when the opposing side took the matter to the court of appeals, Joel handled that with equal skill and fortitude and we were victorious in the Appellate decision. In a nutshell, Joel has been a skillful, kind, honest, affordable and persistent counsel at every step of the way. I don't see how I could have handled this sad situation and arrived to where I am today without Joel as my attorney. I would recommend Joel (and have done so many times) to anyone facing the challenge of divorce and custody.
This attorney was not skillful in handling my divorce. The costs became very expensive because he was not able to manage opposing counsel. Mr. Seidel would let me know that he would get back to me on important issues and they were usually delayed or time lapsed and I gave-up.
