Brett Wishart has the knowledge, expertise, professionalism, care, and understanding to guide you through a marriage dissolution. In a time that seems so dark, and helpless, Brett was able to guide me through a very emotional, financial, and physically difficult process. Without Brett's advice and guidance, this entire process would have seemed hopeless. Brett and his legal team were there through the darkest, and most difficult dicions that had to be made, holding my hand, and never letting me feel that I was ever alone.
I am very grateful for the results Brett and his team were able to win for me. Every case is unique and complex in it's own right. However, I went through this thinking the impossible, and Brett was able to succesfully battle and recieve on my behalf more than I ever could have imagined, and asked for.
Again, I am very grateful for the end results of my divorce. It would have never happened without Brett and his legal teams attention to detail, guidance, time, understanding, knowledge, expertice, and professionalism.
I VERY highly recomend working with Brett. He is very patient, explains things very thoroughly, very knowledgable, kind, understanding, and professional.
Brett, Thank you again, so very, VERY much for working and battling on my behalf, and getting for me results, that I could have only imagined, and hoped for. Your hard work, expertise, knowledge, patience, care, time, and understandung made this process so much easier.
Thank you. Sincerely,

During one of the most traumatic and difficult times of my life, I had Brett there to get me through it. He was knowledgeable, responsive to each and every question I had and although I could not retain him throughout the entire duration of my case due to monetary issues I had, he continued to offer me suggestions and take my questions as a friend. That's the sign of a quality attorney that I would refer to anyone.

Seperation from my wife started when my buisness tanked with the economy and i returned to work as a blue collar operating engineer. My educated wife with master degree in psychotherapy working for a non profit could not handle the stress of the downturn and her maybe having to find a real job lead to many stress in the house hold. Years before this decision we where having issues but they where ignored till i had the balls to call it quit, wife accused me of cheating, abandonment, abuse, called everyone i knew and so on, the only thing that was important to me was my son , Brett Wishart fought and got me the time I wanted with my son , Brett's firm tough approach to her and her lawyer made me feel at ease and cofident through out the whole process of time with my son and seperation of property, I am forever greatful to Brett and his staff and they will continue to be my goto team for any of my legal issues,

Mr. Wishart is confident in his legal knowledge and brought peace of mind to me and eased my worries. He is honest and ethical, but very outgoing and does not hesitate to take the initiative. I found his council comforting and he gave me a positive feeling and outlook on my situation and gave me a sense that everything was going to be resolved; and everything was resolved in the best possible way! Mr. Wishart is very wise and I am very pleased with his service and the results he was able to produce for me. I recommend him to anyone who desires victorious results.

My experience with Brett Wishart was very positive. He provided me with a great service in a time of great personal need. He was honest and understanding, taking the time to address my questions and concerns in a way that was easily understood, putting to ease my worries and concerns. He acted in a professional manner and gave me great confidence in his ability to represent me in court and obtain the best possible outcome. I will ask for his services again in the future if need be and will recommend him to my friends, co-workers and family if they ever need legal counsel or representation.

Mr. Wishart is professional and his presence in the courtroom is respectful and poised. Mr. Wishart listens without bias and does not focus on the emotional aspect of the case, rather uses his expertise in family law and his experience in the court room. I was seeking an attorney that would be able to work with my spouse, but also exercise firmness if agreements could not be reached. Brett is a team player and is open to discussing and/or guiding me through this process with the top most professionalism and confidence. He's not the type of attorney that you will sit and waste time insulting the other party and I find this to be a good characteristic.

I was impressed with Brett for many reasons. honestly when I came to him, through a personal referral, I was looking for someone I could trust to have my family and my best interest as the priority.. My ex had plenty of money to spend and fight me to make me pay. Brett was able to reassure me that they would not be able take advantage of me and that I will be protected My timeshare with the kids would be fair.
There were a some setbacks. I became ill and found a toumor in my spine at wich point I was unable to work and had to focus much of my energy on fighting for my health. As I was going through all this Brett Kept me up to speed with any correspondence and helped me do what was necessary to continue to make the best legal decisions.
In court he knew the Judge and how to present and defend my case. He was able to keep the opposition honest. I was able to have my kids half the time instead of the 20% they were pushing for.
I am thankful for all the help I received from Brett. He is an excellent Lawyer.

Brett represented me as the petitioner in a long, complicated and exhausting divorce case. The end result was in my favor and I believe this is due to Brett's persistence, expertise and knowledge. Brett is upfront, honest and doesn't sugar coat anything. I appreciated that he would prepare me for the worst case scenari if things didn't go in my favor. He kept me informed and up to date through the whole process. I would not hesitate to use his services again and to recommend him to anyone going through the divorce process.

Brett did a great job for me. He worked hard and was able to finalize my divorce in my favor.

I hired Mr. Wishart in 2011 to defend me in a child custody suit. My ex wife filed an action for sole custody of our daughter falsely claiming abuse. At Court, Mr. Wishart debunked my ex's claims of abuse and my custodial rights were fully restored. I have recommended his services many times. He is the best lawyer I've ever seen!

I had to replace this attorney due to unsatisfactory performance. The plaintiffs’ attorney was running the case and in my opinion Brett was not strong enough to oppose him. I had to hire a replacement attorney however I continued to get billed even after I requested him to stop at $10,000 which he racked up within 20 days.
I refused to pay the extra $2,300 he billed me after the case was over so he charge me an extra $600 for fees and extras. Now his little brother ( Benjamin S. Wishart) who became a lawyer in 2011 is now currently suing me almost three years later for $ 2900.00 .
please read the fine print in their contract because they put in the agreement they could tag on 10% interest on what they deem as the unpaid balance.

Brett is an extraordinarily talented attorney. I was particularly impressed with his ability to seize opportunities, in and out of court. Maybe it is his ambitious nature or simply innate intellectually creative talents? One thing is for certain he is a super star.
Brett's negotiating style is in alignment with the world's best negotiation programs and I observed him employ these IVY League skills resulting in an amazingly favorable ruling in a very high profile case. He far exceeded everyone's expectations and seemed happy that I was happy, despite all the challenges the case brought forth. He is so well suited for the profession, I consider his a preeminent name in family law. I refer to his office exclusively.
You're lucky to benefit from his services when you trust his office during this difficult time in your life. Contact him, he is gracious and will counsel you with the caring integrity that I believe drives his success.

Mr. Wishart helped me through a time of great crisis in my life. I felt as though my life had been flipped upside down and I had know idea where to begin sorting through the issues I was facing. Mr. Wishart gave me a new perspective on not only my rights as a parent but also hope that being a father did not automatically mean I could not have physical custody of my four boys. Mr. Wishart has a great ability to reason and calm down opposing parties and help them see things in a way that can be mutually beneficial. Overall the process of divorse was definately easier than I thought it would be thanks to the handling of it by Mr. Wishart.

Mr. Wishart has handled my divorce with exceptional professionalism and honesty. He has an impressive understanding of family law and has been, at all times, "ahead of the game." He has not wasted my time nor my money. Mr. Wishart was recommended to me by an acquaintance and I have since recommended him to two other women, one of these women hired him and was extremely happy with his work, the other woman went back to her husband.
