4.5 stars 12 totalReview Brent Bohan

I hired Brent in the midst of a vicious attack from an ex-wife who had re-opened our divorce case. Brent tried his best but was up against an attorney who had a lot of institutional knowledge and who had a lot of courtroom experience and used that experience to lead the commissioner down a path that lacked fact and ironically, no foundation in law. Brent's firm is intent on genning the invoices and there is little concern for whether the client wins or loses - the firm's sole function it to get out the invoices and then how quickly they can get those invoices paid. I guess this makes sense as they are in business to make money, but there could be some consideration for the client. If you want a billing machine that sits on top of you, pick this firm. If you want someone who cares, who fights and who views your case from the point of view as a "team", pick someone else. It's not Brent's fault. He's just employed by a machine.

Brent went above and beyond the call of duty during my divorce proceedings. He is excellent with high conflict custody cases and has a smart yet aggressive approach that is both efficient and effective. He manages client expectations well, and tends to deliver more than he promises. He is also motivated by justice and by his client's need whereas most attorney's are primarily motivated by accruing fees. He was responsive, accessible, supportive and had creative strategies for dealing with opposing counsel. He kept me on task while I was struggling with multiple stressful events such as family illness and car accidents, and let nothing fall through the cracks.
I highly recommend Brent to anyone who is going through a contentious divorce, particularly one that involves a custody battle. He will work very hard to settle but will not hesitate to go to trial if the situation calls for it. He also pushes his client's money much farther than any other attorney I know of. Brent breaks the stereotype for law practitioners and faces each case with an attitude of honesty and integrity.

My divorce should have been a piece of cake, but it wasn't! Brent Bohan made sure I had a great settlement and fought for me with passion and integrity. I am very pleased with his performance and recommend that anyone looking for a great attorney, give him a call. In my book, he is the best!!

Brent Bohan was my attorney for my divorce. He allways got back to me in a timely manner. If I didn't hear back the same day, I would get a response the following day. He gives great advice and is supportive. My ex-spouse and I had several disagreements, but Brent was able to easily resolve them for us. I will definitely refer him.

Having to go through legal procedures is rarely something that brings pleasure to people, at least it is not something that I draw pleasure from. I view it as a daunting and unpleasant task, but a necessity at times. Brent Bohan helped to make my experience with the legal process as painless as I imagine possible. He understood my aversion towards the process and was empathetic without needing any explanation. He is the only reason for the 4 star rating, otherwise I would view the legal process as a -5 stars for sure.

With many aspects of family law so contentious, Brent exhibits a mindful and holistic approach to these legal matters. During my representation (over 8 years), Brent had a difficult time with intransigent lawyers, broken court systems and processes, as well as a recalcitrant opposing client (my ex). However, this never deterred his dogged attempts to keep the ball moving. While I am no longer represented by Brent, as the case is as complete as it will be, I would absolutely recommend or use his services anytime.

Brent took over when another lawyer abruptly left the firm. He hit the ground running and gave me the hope and reassurance that I desperately needed going through a particularly messy divorce. I believe it is because of his skill and knowledge that we ended up winning the case. Even though I was falling apart he was always able to keep me focused on a positive outcome. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking a great lawyer.

Brent Bohan is truly a blessing. I called Brent and asked for his help. I had to be in court that afternoon and had no representation. He met me at the courtroom and made my opponent look like a fool for trumping up the charges he made. He got me the money my ex husband had been hiding and refused to give me. He saved me from being homeless, and he helped me keep my two young daughters. He is amazing, and went far beyond what I expected of him. He is worth every penny and is the best attorney I have ever had the pleasure to meet.

We came to Brent three weeks before trial, wanting to switch attorneys from one who told us that what we wanted to fight for in the custody case was pointless. Brent thought we had a shot and was willing to take on our case. He managed to catch himself up on the year-long case, meet with us numerous times, meet with our witnesses, go over trial prep with us and prepare for trial in those three weeks.
At the trial, Brent was poised and knew what he needed to do. When he cross-examined witnesses, he asked the questions which showed the Court that their testimony didn't matter, or else what the holes were in what they said. He listened to their responses and came up with questions pertaining to what they had just said which left many of them unable to answer without harming their own testimony. One witness got so angry at his question that she asked the Judge if it was a legitimate question and was told by the Judge to answer. When he did not get an answer to his questions, he would repeat the question until the witness actually answered the question - usually to their detriment.
When he questioned the respondent, despite her unbelievable rudeness to both him and the Judge, he remained calm and polite. He never bullied her or responded to her shouting at him. He managed to ask questions to which she had absolutely no answer or actually answered "just because."
Her trial strategy was to show how good a parent she is and how bad a parent the father is. Brent's trial strategy was 'here's what's happened, here's the evidence to support that, here's what's in the best interest of the children.'
The Judge ruled in our favor, giving us more than we had asked for, definitely what is in the best interest of the children.
I cannot say enough good things about Brent. He responded to emails almost immediately, kept us informed every step of the way, helped us make what were obviously the correct decisions about how to proceed and did so in a way in which we understood why.
We will be recommending Brent to everyone we know, and if we ever need an attorney again, you can be sure Brent is to whom we shall turn.

I waited a long time to get a divorce because the previous lawyers I talked to made it sound so complicated and expensive. I'm really glad I got Brent. He was very supportive in every step and he's always available whenever there's something I didn't understand. He did a great job completing all the paperwork and it was over in no time. I already recommended him to other people.
