Choosing a lawyer during a child custody case is stressful and emotional. I was glad I selected Mr. Huguenor, the 1st time I went to court I felt protected. He is knowledgeable and aggressive when he needs to be. I needed once again to go back to court and I chose Mr. Huguenor to represent me once again. Situations arise even after hours when kids are involved, Mr. Huguenor made himself available during these times to advise me on how to proceed. That's the kind of service you want from your lawyer especially when your going thru child custody matters. Highly recommend Mr. Huguenor!
I respected Mr. Huguenor from the very beginning during my free consultation. He was honest, direct, and knowledgeable in family law. His thorough approach provided me assistance with a strong case plan that resulting in the courts granting my motion to move away. The services that he and his law office provided were worth every cent I spent during my case. If you need representation regarding a family law matter, hire his law office.
1) This attorney attempted to charge me for 5 hours worth of billing on a matter that was previously ruled on by the family court system and was a simple matter of filing a TRO. He tried to bill me $1,500 saying the matter required "signicant research"; the next attorney who reviewed it called it a "no brainer" and put the matter quickly to rest with an hour's worth of billing.
Knowing the timing of my situation was critical and that I was very motivated, he saw, I strongly feel, an opportunity to enhance his charges. Another past client of his that I discussed this with complained about repeated similar charges with little resulting action.
2) This attorney founded an organization known as POPCO, a San Diego father's rights group, yet was clandestine regarding his involvement with the group. He would "be invited" to speak before the group and therein farm clients who had no knowledge that he was in fact directing the group's activities.
Once discovered, this appeared to me to be deceptive and misleading. I am secure in this knowledge because of an acquaintence who performed office work with POPCO and Mr. Huguenor as a way of paying off his legal fees.
I would not recommend this person.
Mr. Huguenor is a great professional and experience to result my case with success. My case was more complicated and my prior Specialist divorce lawyer who failed to defense me for my daughter visitation and my property. After I signed a contract with Mr. Huguenor, he and his staffs were so great experience, integrity, and honest to take over my case with successful ending result. I was so much grateful to him and his staffs for their great efforts to help me get through the difficult time. Now, I have owned my house back and my daughter stayed close relationship with me as her good father. I would say thank you very much to Mr. Huguenor and his staffs from bottom of my heart, and I would recommend all to see Mr. Huguenor and his staffs.
