Mr Sissung is not aggressive in my case. My ex put up completely false allegations and dumped a restraining order on me. on the very court hearing meant to decide on the validity of this RO, he allowed my ex " to postpone the decision" , so half of the hearing is wasted, while the fact was that my ex was completely confused and did not ask for the postponement.
At first he advised me to do certain preparation work for the hearing, but then just before the hearing he said those work won't be used at all. This shows either his lack of attention to the case (he forgot), or lack of respect for the significance I put on my case, and my time and work. ----- if he believes this is not necessary, then he should have said that in the beginning. Yes, as a lawyer he deals with similar cases everyday, but for every client, the case is the biggest thing for him/her in many years, Mr Sissung seems to be rather nonchalant about the outcome of the case, and my desperation for the case can hardly be appreciated by him.
When the restraining order came, he did not really treat it carefully, and did not notice some apparently illogical claims in the RO until I raised them. if I had not done this, it could have caused more serious damages to me.
Overall, I feel that Mr Sissung did not provide too much help, beyond the clerical paperwork-filling, which was performed by the staff. Even for the paperwork, most of the content materials you have to create yourself anyway, the staff pretty much did only the re-typing and printing.
Additionally they are definitely expensive, they do only one thing really attentively: keeping tab on their work clock and subtracting your money. Unless you are a millionaire, you will be "Burn"ed.

It is a great honor for me to recommend my attorney, Mr. Jeff Sissung. Jeff is part of the team of Holstrom, Sissung, Marks and Anderson. From the first time I stepped into the office at this firm, I knew that I was with an outstanding law firm. From the beginning, the entire team was involved, not only in my divorce case but also in me as a person.
I am very fortunate to have Mr. Sissung represent me in court proceedings. Mr. Sissung is an experienced and sucessful attorney who commands respect from his professional peers. Going through a difficult divorce where your very livlihood and future is at stake is a very stressful thing but having Mr. Sissung as an advocate has made the process so much easier. His infectous smile and calming dimeanor along with his expertise in the courtroom is all that I could have asked for. I am so very grateful for the wonderful team at Holstrom, Sissung, Marks and Anderson...especially my attorney, Mr. Jeffrey Sissung. You simply cannot find a better advocate!

It wasn’t long after arriving at Dayn A. Holstrom’s and Jeffrey R. Sissung firm that I knew I was in the right place. Both of these lawyers are brilliant, experienced, and professional in their demeanors. Dayn initially met with me. He explained to me his thoughts on my case and gave me the best case and worst case scenario’s. It was immediately clear that Dayn had an unparalleled amount of experience and knowledge about the complexities of my situation. Jeffrey took over my case after the initial case review and he handled the situation expertly. My family and friends were all impressed with Jeff’s ability in the courtroom as well as his nature and skill to explain and walk through different situations offered by the petitioner in my case. My court case was an extremely difficult experience that Holstrom, Sissung, Marks, & Anderson APLC gave me an incredible amount of confidence that I was being represented by the best. Mr. Sissung ultimately beat a very aggressive and notorious opposing lawyer in my case. The judge threw the entire case out based of Jeff's defense of me.

My Family Law Case in Riverside, California is 13 years old and I have been in court for most of those years responding to frivolous motions. I had moved out of the state approximately 3 years ago after I was granted permission to do so with my minor child. In late November 2011, I received in the mail an order to appear in court in less then a week in December 2011 regarding visitation. With me living out of state now, I knew I needed a professional, experienced, aggressive and knowledgeable attorney to represent my minor son and I as soon as possible because my case was thick and difficult. My husband, found the law firm, Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson from the internet. Attorney Kristen Holstrom-Fiebiger was the first person of contact and became of aware of my situation I was facing and assured him that they could help. Kristen, later had Attorney Jeff Sissung call me back later that evening to discuss my case even more. We thought that I had to address the court for a response to child visitation that was filed and my request to transfer my case. In that short time, Kristen was able to make an appearance on my behalf for me in December 2011, because I do not live in the state and this impressed me, because it was impossible for me to be there. The hearing date was moved to late January 2012, combined with the hearing of transferring my case to the state with where the child resides. To make a long story short, Kristen was very helpful and knowledgeable in preparing my case which kept me focus and less worried. My concerns were not ignored. Jeff represented me in court January 2012 and he was well prepared with the motions. Jeff was precise and thorough when he presenting the facts of the case on why the case should be transferred to Texas and the order for visitation should be heard in Texas and not Riverside, California. The judge granted the order to transfer and I was overjoyed with the outcome! Also there is Paralegal, Corrina Fuller, returning phone calls, behind the scenes making sure everything with my case was connected and filed in a timely manner to help the process run smooth and get done with the assistance of transferring the case since were not in the same state. A Big Thanks to all who worked on my case, it was very much appreciated! Indeed this, Law Firm is professional, experienced, aggressive and knowledgeable.

Please be advised that before writing this testimonial letter, I would like to inform the reader(s) that having retired from the U. S. Marine Corps after serving 20 years of honorable service, followed by 15 years of employment at Toyota Racing Development, Inc. as the Senior IT Administrator; warrants me to say that I have worked with some of the most respectful, intelligent, and professional individuals known to man, and that can only be described as â€œsecond to none.â€
Following a divorce settlement on April 2003, which required alimony payments of $24K a year for 9+years, I was informed June 2011 by my employer that a company-wide employee restructuring meant that my position would be terminated July 2011. Having been informed this, I knew that this necessitated an immediate modification to the original settlement.
It was then that I contacted the law firm Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson, a Professional Law Corporation, and was put in contact with Jeff Sissung. During our initial phone conversation I realized that Jeffâ€™s knowledge of family law, coupled with his communication skills with regards to the legal procedures required to succeed, made the decision to request his representation easy.
I was extremely comfortable knowing that Jeff would take personal ownership of my case. This coupled with his unwavering professionalism and knowledge of family law; I knew that he would use whatever legal processes available to ensure that a successful outcome would be achieved. All this Iâ€™m certain, while simultaneously accepting the demanding challenges presented to him by additional clients.
Jeffâ€™s admiration for his profession is demonstrated by his providing that personal aspect to his clients. His precise, flawless, attention to detail brought about a highly successful settlement that could not have been accomplished otherwise.

Mr. Sissoung is an outstanding attorney ! He is very knowledgeable and has a lot of experience. He represented me at my hearing and was agressive and even tried to negotiate outside of the courtroom. I couldn't have done it with out Jeff by my side. Everyone at the firm is very helpfull and professional. They always keep you informed on what is going on in your case and very easy to get a hold of. This is the place to go if you want strong representation!!

When I was in the midst of the most difficult part of my case, in my eyes, I met Jeff. I was very nervous, unsure of what to do or how I would resolve my divorce. Jeff was very calm, assuring and detailed in his work. Jeff gathered all the facts, gave me concrete expectations and when we were in court I was completely assured of how intelligent and experienced he truly is. Jeff is an impressive attorney and will handle your case with professionalism and keep you informed. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an organized intelligent attorney that can make it happen.

Now with having to handle a case out of state, was difficult right from the start. I wanted to handle the situation on my own. But I felt being a father I wasn't making any progress for the sake of my boys.I was very happy with everyone at the firm of Holstrom, Sissung, Marks and Anderson, I was very confident about my case and had no doubt that this law firm would meet my needs.. I was always in formed and kept up to date on the status of my case. When ever I had a question or a concern about the evidence I had, I was always immediately taken care of. Jeff Sissung and the entire firm were always very helpful. They prepared all of my documents, filed all the paperwork, and kept me informed of my case.They made me feel confident and It was calming to know that I was in their hands, and if need be, I would not only recommend this firm but I would hire them again.
I highly recommend the law firm Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson.

I highly recommend the law firm Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson. In my case, I was seeking child support. Initially the Court erred and denied my request for child support. It then became extremely difficult to overcome the error of the Court. Thus, I sought legal representation.
After doing some research online I found this firm and scheduled an appointment to meet with attorney Jeffrey R. Sissung and his team. Jeff and his team were not only very professional and persistent with the handling of my difficult case but his team was also very accommodating and supportive of my individual needs. Furthermore, whenever I had doubts, concerns or questions I was given thorough explanations. I found this to be very calming.
It would have been impossible for me to obtain justice for my children without Jeffrey Sissung, Kathryn Yarnal, Christie Kaiser and the entire legal team at Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson. I simply cannot say thank you enough for all of their help. I deeply appreciate everything that this firm has done for me.

I was recently served with a bogus Domestic Violence Restraining Order by my wife of 7 years in an attempt by her to gain custody of our children and have me kicked out of my home. Being that I have a previous conviction on my record for Domestic Violence I was scared to death that I would never see my children again and that my wife would take everything that I owned away from me. I consulted with several attorneys, all of which told me that I had a potentially bad case and would more than likely lose in court. My kids are my life and so I decided to keep looking for a more knowledgeable attorney. I went on a site called AVVO.com and found the law offices of Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson. After a brief phone consultation with Attorneys Kristen Holstrom-Fiebiger and Jeff Sissung I was very relieved to hear that there was hope and that I shouldn't just give up. I met with Jeff Sissung the next day and after talking with him for a short while I knew he was the attorney I needed. He assured me that I had a good chance of winning my case and that his office would do everything in their power to make sure that needs were met and handled with the utmost priority. I only had a couple of weeks to prepare for the hearing, but Ms. Holstrom and Mr. Sissung's team made it as simple as possible. They prepared all of my documents, filed all the paperwork, and kept me apprised of everything they were taking care of at all times. All my questions and concerns were immediately addressed and they gave me advice that helped to ease my stress. On the day of my hearing Mr. Sissung met with me prior to entering the court room and told me that he would do everything in his power to ensure the best possible outcome for my case. Mr. Sissung met with my wife and tried to suggest that she work out some sort of reasonable agreement that would be in the best interests of our children but when my wife wouldn't agree Mr. Sissung took my case before the judge and took care of business like a true seasoned professional. Needless to say, the Domestic Violence Restraining Order that my wife was seeking to make permanent was thrown out of court and I am no longer in fear of losing my children. I still retain custody and no longer have to worry about going to jail because of bogus allegations that are being made by my wife. I can't thank Jeff and his team of professionals enough but I can recommend that for anyone seeking the best legal representation for Family Law matters in Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties you need to call the Law offices of Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson today, they take care of business and get the job done with ease!

I wanted to take a minute to recommend attorneys Kristen A. Holstrom-Fiebiger, Jeffrey R. Sissung and Dayn A. Holstrom for the attention and dedication given to my case. When my ex-wife approached me with the news she was planning to move my daughter and herself to Pennsylvania , I was nervous and unsure as to what legal rights I had available to me. After doing some research for family law firms I found Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson. I knew I found the right law firm to handle my case simply because of one reason; experience. The team at Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson are not ego driven but simply experienced and knowledgeable in family law. From start to finish I was given step-by-step advice in how to handle my ex-wifeâ€™s requests and the courts. I found success with this firm. I found my own courage in their confidence. I was able to state my case factually and prevail with what was in the best interest of my daughter. My daughter is still in California and I am raising her while co-parenting with her mother. Without you and everyone at Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson this simply would not have been the case. Thank you again for all of your hard work, sincerity and attention to my case.

From the day that I walked into meet with Jeff and Dayn it has been a pleasurable experience. I was forced to hire an attorney when my ex filed a motion for full custody of our daughter even though I had been the custodial parent since birth . After making a few calls to law offices I made an appointment to meet with Dayn Holstrom.. I have worked with Dayn, Jeff and Mariana throughout my case and I have never been disappointed. I was very comfortable with each of them. I never felt nervous at any time throughout my case. Before I hired them, I was representing myself and it has been very scary. They did a great job in representing me and won my custody case for me. I have an upcoming support hearing and I am comforted by the fact that I know I have great representation. Dayn agreed to work with me financially. Had he not done this I would have been fighting this battle alone. Daynâ€™s firm is the first and only attorney I have used. I will never use another firm in the future either. Comfort is very important to me and every person in that office makes me feel comfortable. This is a great feeling.

I was very happy with everyone at the firm of Holstrom, Sissung, Marks and Anderson, from the receptionists to the accounting department. From the first time I met with Jeffrey Sissung, I was put at ease and explained everything thoroughly. I always knew the step we were on and was always kept up-to-date on the happenings of my case, no matter how small they were. I always felt prepared and knowledgeable about my case because of their guidance. I was extremely happy with the outcome of my child support case, getting better orders than what I originally sought. I feel very comfortable referring them to people. I had used a different lawyer for a similar case years ago and was scared because of the terrible service I had received from the previous firm, but this firm was so professional , thorough, and knowledgeable that I was confident that the experience was going to be a much more pleasant one, and it was. If anything else were to arise where I would need a lawyer, I wouldnâ€™t hesitate to call them again.

I hired Jeff and his firm (Holstrom, Sissung, Marks and Anderson) to represent me in my child support arrears case against Department of Child Support Services. I am a contractor and due to arrears the state was about to revoke my license pending the outcome of my case. I called and spoke with a very nice clerk named Kristen who then set me up with Jeff and Dayn. Jeff had all my financial parpework prepared in filed within 7 days wherein he also represented me at my hearing. Jeff negotiated a payment plan at the hearing last month and prevented me from losing my only sourceof of income. I have never worked with such a proficient and competent grioup of lawyers and staff.

I hired Mr. Holstrom firm and Mr. Sissung's frim to represent me in what I called a "train wreck" divorce. I spent more than 2 years battling my ex in Court every other month. I hired Dayn because a friend had called him a "bull dog" in Court. Jeff and Dayn finished up my case and even negiotiated a more than reasonable (for both of us) visitation/holiday schedule. I needed someome to stand up for me when I could not. I was so drained and beat down by the whole process that I felt depleted. These lawyers saved my relationship with my kids. My case is still going and probably will forever, but I am in great hands.
