Randall Hicks did a stepparent adoption for us. He did an excellent job and did it fast. Very fair pricing. And when we went to court for the final hearing, it was obvious the judge knew and liked him a lot, which made us feel very confident.
Randy was an excellent attorney for us. We could not have been happier. He took us from the beginning, - finding a birth mother - to all the legal steps - to completing the adoption in court. What impressed us the most was that we'd each used lawyers in past years, myself for a divorce and my wife for a bankruptcy. Neither experience was very good. But Randy was very personal, and even when we called him on the weekends we could always reach him. His fees were very fair and I had the feeling he did a lot of work he didn't even charge us for, a big difference from being nickel and dimed by past lawyers. I guess most important, he really, really seems to know everything about adoption.
My husband and I have adopted three children. We hired Mr. Hicks at one time. Once our money was paid, we could not get in touch with him personally. His secretary at the time was very rude and abbrasive. We moved on to someone else and had a successful and positive adoption experience, but lost the entire money we had paid for Mr. Hicks adoption services. I do no recommend this attorney.
Randy assisted us with the adoption of our daughter last year. He was very nice, worked great with our birth mother, and kept us informed all the way through. He made the complicated stuff about the birth father go very smoothly. We found him through one of the books he wrote on adoption. His fees were very fair, and the federal tax credit actually paid for our whole adoption!
