    Excellent service - Thank you Attorney Rory

    Attorney Rory helped me get an excellent settlement agreement, under difficult circumstances, in less than one year. I was divorced at the pre-trial hearing because he worked very hard to get the agreement done by that date so that I could avoid the trouble and expense of going to trial. I met him once in his office in Monterey, the rest of the process was done remotelyand by exchanging emails since I currently live far from Monterey. Attorney Rory is very comfortable talking on the phone and discussing all options available to us. I would definitely recommend RSC Law Group for anyone looking for family law attorney.

    AWFUL! DO NOT HIRE!

    I had a terrible experience with this lawyer. I not only feel but i know that he is nothing more than one of those lawyers who will say anything just to get hired. He not only promised me amounts of spousal support and child support that I would get but he also said my ex would have to pay my lawyer fees to him. None of that happened, I would up having to pay my ex both child and spousal support.

    He also has his associate do all of the busy work for him and his associate is fresh out of law school and cant even write a coherent sentence. I had to correct my affidavits he wrote for me like a fifth grade English teacher. On top of that they charged me for editing the affidavits I corrected!

    He also has very poor communication skills. He talks really fast and its hard to understand him. He does not go over any of the pleading forms with you, just asks you to sign on the dotted line. I am submitting a formal complaint to the bar. Now that I fired him, my ex and I sat down and worked everything out and I was informed he has a really bad reputation with the courts for litigating issues that could be easily resolved with a phone call.

    Be careful with him, he is a fast talker and very charming. He also will hit you up for referrals. I would refer anybody to him.

    Great, patient, understanding, strong, informational Laywer

    As a women I was nerves about finding a lawyer, but not with Rory. He made me feel comfortable the first time I met him. He is very good at explaining the lawyer papers, the way it's worded which for me was very foreign. Always returned emails and call. He is very down to earth and is a people's person. I would highly recommend him to any of my family and friends

    Outstanding Attorney

    When I was introduced to Rory Coetzee by my previous attorney, I had completely lost all faith in attorneys & the court system. Being duped, taken advantage of and mislead by my previous attorney I was a little apprehensive on whether I wanted to "fix" the mess I was in. It was only after speaking with Rory my faith in the legal system and attorneys was restored. Rory took the time to listen to my situation patiently. He did not interrupt and asked detailed questions to ensure he fully understood the nature of my case. I am currently Rory's client and my child support case is still in progress. So far Rory has been an outstanding attorney. Rory's communication and commitment to my case have not faltered. Rory has been consistent with filing of paperwork and keeping me informed. Rory and his entire office staff are caring, compassionate and understanding. As the cost of court fees and legal representation can be immense and become overwhelming, especially for a single parent, Rory has been more than compassionate to my financial situation and has worked with me on his fees all while remaining dedicated in providing excellent representation. By that, Rory proves he genuinely cares about his clients. I am very confident that my case is in good hands with Rory and I am honestly glad I have finally found someone who is knowledgeable of the law, is honest, hard working and has high ethical & moral standards. Rory is dedicated to ensuring his clients get the best possible outcome. I would recommend Rory in a heartbeat.

    Excellent attorney and highly recommended

    This is the second time I have used Rory in a child custody case once when he was with a firm in San Jose and just recently after he had gone out on his own and opened his own practice in Monterey. Even though my case was in San Jose I felt strongly that I still wanted him to represent me again. I chose the firm he was previously with because of him, on the recommendation of an attorney friend. I was a little worried when I needed representation again and found out the he had left San Jose to open his own practice in Monterey, but was happy to find out that he still took clients in Santa Clara County.
    In both the instances that he represented me he was great and got me pretty much everything I wanted. I found Rory to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful, he even steered me away from making extra unneeded motions that would have just resulted in me spending extra money that I didn't need to to get the results that I wanted (he wasn't interested in just running up my bill). It truly felt that he was looking out for mine and my child's best interests. I would definitely recommend him.

    Superb Lawyer ! A lawyer with a heart.

    I do not think I even have words to describe Rory. In the 4 years that he has represented me in my very abusive legal divorce I have seen all facets of this remarkable lawyer. I have seen a lawyer with a heart, a lawyer who has become a friend I truly trust and respect for advice, and a person that our family is indebted to for his continued dedication to keeping my boys safe and to do all he can to serve their best interests as my attorney and friend. He truly cares about families and children and is truly a very nice person.

    Great representation

    Mr. Coetzee is everything a lawyer should be. When I met with him and on my case he was attentive, listened to my questions, issues, complaints etc. and was responsive. He was very honest and straightforward letting me know what he could do and what he couldn't in reference to my custody case. His fees were not excessive and actually worked with me when money was tight. He was successful on my behalf and if needed, I would seek his representation again.

    I only wish I had found him before spending thousands of dollars on excessive fees from a previous attorney.
