Richard Isles is the best lawyer around I was faulsly accused of domestic violence and Richard Isles won my case hands down and is representing me in court for my child custody case and I have the up most confidence that we will win that as well.He is a putbull in the court room and will not stop till you get what you want.I'm my opinion he's the best lawyer in Riverside County if not the state.
After several awful experiences with prior counsel Mr. Isles was a breath of fresh air. He was upfront and open about what the expectations should be, and did not lead us on to expect more than was legally permissible, he was not trying to be sneaky - which was our experience with former lawyers. He keeps you informed along the way and asks questions as they arise so that by the date of hearing he is fully prepared, as well as keeping us fully educated and therefor prepared as well. Finally there was a positive experience for us in the courtroom, under his representation. He takes his obligation to protect the best interests of his clients seriously and that really showed. I wish he was the first attorney we had hired in the beginning!! I would and will recommend Mr. Isles to anyone in the area in need of a family law attorney.
I chose Richard Isles after meeting him in person at his office. I can confidently say my case was finalized without any problems or delay. Was quoted the average retainer fee for divorce and custody. Each issue that was important to my future (custody and support payments) was handled and resolved againt the ex's lawyer smoothly and without delay. I actually came out of this with more than I hoped for. Am not normally the type to throw in the towel but when you just want out of a marraige from hell you want it overwith yesterday! If anything, I gained more than I went into the divorce expecting. This lawyer was actually looking out for MY best interests.
My divorce goals were met (wanted my divorce over in six months, 50/50 custody, 70 inch t.v, my car, Boat, and quick resolution) with freedom papers in hand. They delivered. Made the process less painful then I expected, especially going into this with a materialistic money-hungry ex who threatened to never let me see my kids. I actually feel like I won, if there is such a thing in divorce.
From the first interview, It was clear the lawyer knew his law. He spoke on my level, without legal jargon, practical advice was given as well, to avoid the Ex from causing any sh-- that could ruin my career.
I know my choice was right in hiring this firm. I read the reviews here prior to hiring, did my research, and they delivered. End result- divorced, shared custody, and not financially drained. Works for me!
I have been working with this law firm for the last 2.5 years do to my messy complicated divorce. They have been very helpful with working with me with answering my questions and even cost wise knowing I am a single mother of two. And this being my only encounter with a lawyer I know I made the right choice
Mr. Isles office was very receptive and empathetic to my situation during my initial call for advice. After meeting with Mr. Isles for the first time I was confident that I had made the right decision. Most offices have multiple attorneys that represent the firm but Mr. isles agreed to represent me himself without hesitation. Mr. Isles was both punctual and professional in addition to being considerate and responsive with all of my requests. I would highly recommend Mr. Isles to any potential client in need of a family law attorney.
After speaking to several attorneys, I hired the Law Office Richard Isles. He far exceeded all of my expectations. Mr. Isles is a very aggressive attorney. He is very knowledgable with the local courts and he knows the law well. He is trustworthy and will fight for you. He is quick on his feet in the court room. In my case, my ex husband is no longer pushing me around. I would recommend Mr. Isles to anyone who needs aggressive representation. Thank you Mr. Isles for all that you have done for me.
Mr. Isles is an exceptional attorney, whom is always prepared. He argued my case against my wife to clearly my financial benefit. He knows the law and does not cave in just because it get difficult. He save me a ton of money in the end. Well worth it. I also used him to do my son DUI case back in 2010 which he got my son off using the technicalities against the police who arrested him. At that time I did not know he did family law too. Thanks Richard for all your help..
I would like to say that the Law Offices of Richard Isles has been a tremendous help during this difficult time. They provided guidance through my entire divorce process. I was always able to get a hold of someone in the office whenever I had questions or concerns. They were patient and kind which was a relief. After 29 yrs of marriage this experience was nothing that I was prepared to deal with at the age of 70 but they got me through it. I would recommend their caring staff to anyone that would have to face this in their life. Thank you all again for everything that you have done for me.
my now ex-wife set me up with a Domestic violence charge in order to get custody of our three children and get me out of my home. I was restrained from seeing the kids for a period of time. I explain the situation to Mr. Isles and he said it's not a problem. A short while later I had weekend visits and now I have them half the time yes that's right 50% legal custody if it wasn't for these professional I would not of had weekends until after February 2015 if I was lucky. my ex also refused to leave my home, in time the next thing you know it's time to go to trial she's backed into a corner and settles she was forced to get out. Now things are getting back to normal as can be.
Mr. Isles is a power player and heavy hitter in Riverside. He has the ability to shut down opposing counsels and make them appear to not understand the law in California. He is honest and frank about your options and ensures you understand the processes involved in the courtroom and beyond. Most of my close friends, family, and I thought my children were going to be able to leave the state because I am in the military. My spouse was attempting to leave the state permanently which would not allow me to have a meaningful relationship with them. Mr. Isles performed "magic" in the courtroom and was able to keep my children within the state so I can continue to having a strong relationship. Thank you Mr. Isles.
