Consulted with Mr. Childs, I found him very knowledgeable and straightforward about the law and my options. Didn't promise things he couldn't deliver. He was willing to attempt to settle matters amicably first before going to court. Friendly, professional office. This was my first divorce and I didn't know how it worked, they were great with my questions. The retainer fee was VERY reasonable, my final cost was only a third of what my ex's was with his attorney! I read the previous review and decided to see him anyway after I called his office. After speaking with him all I can assume is the other reviewer had unrealistic expectations (especially since they stated they have worked with more than 10 attorneys! Who needs an attorney that much?).
I was recommended to Jay Childs by a friend who used him. Very responsible in price. Kept me informed as to the process. Seemed to know his way though the family court system.
This attorney didn't seem to listen very well when we tried to explain our objectives. He seemed more interested in trying to increase his billable hours rather than working on quick resolute process.
