Richard Isles is very quick on his feet. He was quick to catch my ex on his lies at court. Very aggressive and very knowledgeable about custody cases. He did everything he could to force the judge to impose my ex to follow the guidelines he was given for visitation. Very confident lawyer who knew what he was doing.

This is the third time I have used Mr. Isles to represent me in my child custody and family law matters. Mr. Isles has done an excellent job every single time. Mr. Isles did an excellent job of belittling opposing counsel; a high priced Orange County family law attorney and successfully got what is really needed in the best interest of my son and my family. Mr. Isles is not shy in court and you will have your side heard. I have been through multiple family law attorneys and all they seem to care about is billable hours. Not Mr. Isles. He is friendly, understanding and takes a genuine interest in your case and is well worth every penny you spend to protect your interests.

I have been using Mr. Isles law firm on a very difficult matter for the past year and half because I am constantly getting served by the other party . From the moment I walked in and met wt Michelle Stevens I knew I was in good hands . She let me know exactly what would happen and made me feel better abt the situation. She always returned my calls when I had questions . I get sometimes people want compassion in their situations but you need somebody aggressive in that court room and clearly that is what I got. My last hearing was a week ago and mediation went terrible and their was false accusations on me that was so clear that the mediatior was prejudice against me and could have caused a lot of damage . I was so shooken up that i actually got other attorneys advice from other firms and it was clear they wanted to drag it on for money . I called Michelle Stevens and right away felt better . Unfortunately the day of my hearing she had another case in a different court ( I went to her on a fri and my hearing was Monday ) so she called Mr. Isles in her office and he said he would be wt me in court that day to continue my hearing due toe retaining them last min . The day of my hearing he took the time out and heard me out and he actually proceeded wt it and the case was dismissed . His demeanor gave me comfort and I felt like I was in good hands . I will always turn to this firm for help. They are amazing in the court room.

I have not had to use an attorney until recently. My situation was sudden and escalated quickly. I found myself up against an alleged domestic abuse accusation, divorce, custody and spousal support request by my unemployed husband! As a working professional there were allegations being made that stood to be possible grounds for dismissal at work since I undergo an extensive background check for my employment. The sabotage of our home and character deformation that was being constantly tacked to me was becoming unbearable and I found myself needing legal representation as my spouse evidently didn’t want to be amicably.
Full time wife, mother, employee AND student, I found myself in this heinous predicament and felt every negative emotion I think was humanly possible! I was at a lost to say the least.
I was referred to other attorneys through a program at my place of employment, I had a consultation and I sat in an attorney’s office and began to wonder if he was even listening to me as he shuffled various papers that was not mine and indicated that he would “view” my papers only if I retained him!!
Horrified by this, I began a search for someone who would need to understand my plight! I came across Attorney Richard K. Isles and read about him and his firm on their website, I immediately called his office to schedule an appointment and was graciously accommodated. I met with Attorney Isles himself and during the consultation I was able to convey all my concerns.
Attorney Isles listened attentively commented and questioned when he needed clarification and then professionally articulated to me where I stood and what my rights were and what my concerns meant and how it related legally. I was given explanations in regards to every avenue of concerns I had and I truly felt that I was heard. He read through the legal documents that I was served and offered clarity on same.
I was convinced that this was the firm I wanted to represent me and my family.
I conveyed this to Attorney Isles and requested that he himself represent me, which he did.
Attorney Isles then enlightened me about his firm’s policy.
I retained Richard K. Isles Law Firm and I was met and brought abreast of what to expect, what I needed to do and did not need to do. This firm has handled the mountain of paper work I was buried under and has managed to give me a sense of peace during this time of conflict and turmoil. I was able to be a mother to my son, continue to work full time, attend school and went about my days taking care of myself and my son’s mental stability, whilst Attorney Isles and his staff did all the work that initially took me a lot of time to do. I am convinced that he believes in Family Law and the justice that goes along with matters like mine.
So far we have checked a couple items off the laundry list and I continue to trust in the Law office of Richard K. Isles to represent me through the duration of my case. In court he truly was my advocate and protected my well-being from the lobby to the court room. He ensured that we were heard an understood. His questions were timed and seamlessly effortless, perhaps his strategy to get the answers that were the truth. I believe that he has a genuine concern for his clients.
I am confident that Attorney Richard Isles will work for me and my family to ensure a just outcome.

My case is now completed. My case was quite complicated and difficult. There were several trials. Through the lies and manipulation attempts and insanity, Richard K. Isles kept a very accurate perspective in all matters around the case. Richard saved my family, my home, my private and professional reputation. Without Richard, I was at risk of losing my children, my home, and more. He was able to detect, arrest, and place a stop to opposing constant lies and manipulation attempts. He believed in me. Where I started, I needed that first. I needed to fight back and Richard lights up when he stands up for you. There is no better place to see Richard in action then in a court room. He is at his best when most would fold under that kind of pressure. He has worked in Riverside for the majority of his career which means he knows the system here second to none. Richard's staff are excellent and they are very vigilant. I witnessed Richard in the court room many times and his court room talents. He simply does not like to lose. I witnessed even during sidebar meetings with the Judge. He is relentless. His very nature of "the will to win" is not inherent in all attorneys. If I was a lawyer, I would not enjoy going up against Richard. I feel bad for the opposing attorney's client. I would not want to be in their shoes. He knows the law, the legal system, how to ask questions and he knows how to expose the lies. I am very grateful that God connected me to Richard. It was really some kind of fate that I found him. I had another attorney prior to Richard who was nice but not even close to Richard's level. My life turned around for the better when Richard became my attorney. Without Richard K. Isles, I would have come out of this ordeal without major pain and losses. The mere fact of having my children 90% of the time is some kind of gift to me. Richard K. Isles was able to prove to the judge the wrong doing where most people surely would have failed. I have a life time gratitude towards Richard K. Isles. I wish upon nobody to go through what I did and if they had to, they need a defender like Richard K. Isles. I have a nice future ahead of me now to enjoy with my children. I have since remarried (crazy as some may say - I still believe in marriage). My wife has had a child now and we have three children all together. Without Richard K. Isles, this positive future outlook would have taken a much different turn. Thank you Richard K. Isles. From the bottom of my heart. I have a good future to look forward to because of you.

Richard Isles is the Best Attorney in all of Riverside county. You will not find better representation. He has a very aggressive approach To your case. You definitely want this attorney on your side. I've had this attorney for 2 years. He is very understanding of my difficult financial situation. He has ben more then accomidating by allowing me to make payments and not deserting me in the middle of my case. He has gotten me everything I've asked for in court and so much more. His staff is very pleasant to work with and very informative. I would definitely recommend Richard Isles to anyone who needs aggressive representation.

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!

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
