Outstanding services! Mr. Wishart and his assistants were incredibly helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Alway ready to answer questions and give updates. They made me feel confident and secure during one of the hardest times of my life.
My husband was searching for a local attorney to handle his custody case and after sifting through a few different ones, he fortunately found Brett. During our initial consultation with Brett he set realistic expectations for what the outcome may be and now that we are a year and half into the battle and coming to an end, he has by far surpassed those expectations. Throughout this entire process Brett and Holly have been extremely helpful, responsive, efficient and proactive. We never felt as though we were pushed in a corner by the opposing council and on the defense, but rather always one step ahead. As emotions ran high and frustrating situations arose, Brett was always the calming force for my husband and instantly put his mind at ease. I would HIGHLY recommend Brett and his firm if you're facing the family court system.
I had originally retained different counsel for my divorce. After 4 months of no progress and poor communication with their office, i reached out to Brett.
Brett took my case and was very thorough explaining everything to me. Brett and Holly kept me up to date on the progress all the way through. I never once had to reach out to them for an update.
Brett is very knowledgeable and skillful at what he does. He pushed forward to move my case along.
I was ready to take my case to trial but because of Brett's expertise and negotiating skills, we were able to settle in mediation.
Thank you Brett - you did an outstanding job!
Hired Mr Wishart to help me with a child custody issue where I was seeking equal time share with my ex. I previously hired another attorney that was more interested in billing me hours rather than my situation. Brett took the time to truly hear my circumstances and then was able to make realistic, accurate recommendations as to our best course of action.
He's the kind of lawyer that doesn't want every case for the sake of taking it. I got the sense that if he didn't believe in you it'd be hard for him to do his job. However, if you have a case where you are geniune, and in need of sound, accurate, advice...Brett is your man!
Ps. Holly in their office is awesome too!
I used Brett Wishart as my lawyer. I want to make this review short and sweet. I could go on and on about the outstanding service this firm provided for me.
I interviewed 4 different firms before picking Brett as my attorney. Brett is super sincere and on point like no other. I was a little hesitant about the hourly rate and it was out of my budget. I will tell you this much it was worth every penny! You get what you pay for. When you are in a jam like I was you need a race horse to pull you out of that jam. Brett Wishart is just the man to do it. I know one thing, if I ever get into another jam it will be a no brainier for me to call Brett again. Brett didn't beat around the bush, and he was straight to the point. Holly his assistant was on point and had my back every step of the way. I was super confident going into battle with a warrior like Brett! I highly recommend this firm.
If you want to win, you better hire this guy!
I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Brett Wishart to represent you as his divorce attorney.
When it counted, Mr. Wishart and his staff went above and beyond -- pulling a miracle out of his hat and getting my divorce finalized this year by the judge under mitigating circumstances.
He honored my request to keep the costs low - his fees were clear and hours were always reasonable. He also adapted to my shifting priorities as the case progressed.
Mr. Wishart has been a consummate professional to work with.
The divorce process in California does take longer than one would like, but sit tight and take comfort that Mr. Wishart has the relationships, knowledge and skill to see it through.
I was close to giving in and giving up on my divorce when I hired Brett. I fought for years for visitation rights and fair child support. I was very down and thought the fight would never end, as my finances were slowly being drained by my ex wife and lawyer fees.
Within months of hiring Brett my divorce was finished and I got very close to what I had wanted and felt was fair. I'm grateful to him and have respect for the way he works.
My fiancé struggled to end a terrible divorce. His ex wanted everything and to give him nothing. He spent the first 2 1/2 years with a lawyer telling him just to give her everything and another taking every chance he could to bill him and all while keeping important information from him. This led to no resolution and only causing a very emotional and frustrating time for us.
I found Brett here on Avvo and my fiancé hired him immediately. 6 months later the divorce is done and my fiancé got very close to what he wanted. Brett was straight forward, honest and kept on top of things. If I could give anyone advise going through a divorce, get a good lawyer! Save yourself the time, stress and emotional ride. Hire Brett! We are also confidant in the future, dealing with his ex, knowing Brett is a phone call away.
Just recently wrapped up my divorce and visitation/custody agreements with Law office of Brett R. Wishart. I could not have asked for a better person to represent my son's and my best interest. Brett was a great listener and gave me honest feedback when I was being stubborn or unrealistic. He stressed all along that my whole family would be better off not to have a stranger (Judge) decide my future visitation with my son, just because you never know what may happen when stepping in front of a judge. I trusted in Brett that he would get everything I wanted and deserved as a father. I was wrong, I think I only got 99% of what I wanted. LOL. Seriously I got everything that I went in wanting and I couldn't have been happier. In the end, Brett was able to convince my Ex and her attorney that what I was wanting and asking for was in the best interest of our son and was fair for both parents. I'm happy to say that today my Ex and I are friendly to each other and going into this divorce battle I would not have thought that was possible. From the bottom of my heart Brett, Thank You. In the future I hope I never have to see you again BUT if the need arises that I need a family attorney. Undoubtedly you will be the first person I call.

So when my divorce began I felt like my world was falling apart and I dreaded the idea of even shopping around for a divorce attorney. I'm one of those people that hates going to the doctor or the dentist, and finding an attorney felt like it was going to be just as painful. I spoke with quite a few attorney's before I found Brett Wishart. While there wasn't anything really wrong with any of the ones I found, I just wasn't feeling any confidence in the ones I spoke with. But when I spoke with Brett on the phone for the first time, I immediately felt at ease both in the way he made me feel like everything was going to be alright and confidence in his knowledge and experience. He made me feel like he really wanted to help me come out of this with my best interests in mind. I knew right away that he was going to take care of things as much as I needed him to. When I met him in person there was no doubt in my mind that he was the one that I wanted to handle my case.
He's always responsive whether I emailed him or called and he was even there for me during some pretty bad situations when I needed his guidance more than anything. Whenever I had questions, regardless of how simple or complex, he had the answers I needed and he was able to help me keep my head in a few moments where I wasn't sure how I was going to cope or get through it all. He and Holly were very thorough in making sure they knew everything that was going on and it made me feel like I had the best experts in the field at my back. Or in some instances leading the way.
If you are looking for someone that is going to take care of you and help you out, I would highly recommend Brett Wishart. I can't tell you enough how working with him helped me get through my divorce and not feeling like I was alone. If you are shopping around for help, then you should go no further. Brett Wishart is the only person that you need on your side.
