I requested the services Hostrom, Sissuing, and Block in order that I may be reunited with my son. The firm was competent and efficient. They were able to formulate a game plan and exceeded my expectations at my first hearing. Doug Hatherley is my current attorney that was originally appointed to my case. In the beginning, my case seemed to be going in many different directions. However, Doug, who was familiar with the court where my hearing took place, made what I thought was a long shot, perhaps even an impossibility, become a reality. I can only describe it as "sword in the stone." He pulled that sword from the stone and went to battle. I could not believe the results of my case. The results were definitely in my favor. Just the other day, I was finally able to see my son for the first time in over a year!
The case is not over yet, but with Doug's legal assistance, we are already so much closer to being exactly where I had hoped we would be when I hired Hostrom, Sissuing, and Block. I realize that legal situations, especially within family law, do not get resolved over night. However, if I do my part in this, I am confident that Doug and his associated firm will not disappoint. Finally, the firm as whole has been very understanding when it comes to fees and expenses. They have been sensitive to my needs, and have been willing to work with me regarding my finacial situation and its limitations.
So, with that said, I highly recommend the services of Hostrom Sissuing, and Block. If you can, request Doug Hatherley as your representing attorney! He has been nothing less than outstanding!
I am very grateful to Mr. Hatherley for his assistance in resolving a very difficult family situation. He was extremely professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. He listened to all of my concerns and brought about a successful outcome to the proceedings. I highly recommend him and would not hesitate to use his services again in the future.
Mr. Douglas Hatherley is an excellent Attorney. I was very satisfied with his knowledge, professionalism, good manners, fair investigation of my case and his work ethics. I felt very comfortable that he was working in my best interest. I highly recommend his services!
Douglas recently represented me in a custody evaluation and did an outstanding job. I highly recommend him and would ask him to represent me again in without hesitation. His knowledge of family law is incredible. Document research and preparation is of the highest quality, and communication is excellent. Douglas took the time to listen to everything I had to say and incorporated my feedback, and was always very quick to respond when I had questions. He was reassuring and factual without making any false promises or guarantees, which I really appreciated. I also appreciated the fact that he helped me learn to focus on the most important aspects of the case. If you ever find yourself seeking a family law attorney I highly recommend that you contact Douglas.
