Attorney Timothy Sweet has been a true blessing to me & my family. My situation is a rather complex, difficult & lengthy case and I am so thankful that I found Attorney Sweet. From the moment that I met Mr. Sweet I knew that I had finally found an attorney who actually cared about my case and didn't look at me like I am just a number nor a dollar sign. Mr. Sweet listened to everything that I had to say and explained in detail what our potential strategy plan could be and how the process worked. Tim is very honest and straight forward and is not going to promise things that he can't deliver. Attorney Sweet has a rather unique and intellegnt strategical approach on how address the situation that I was very impressed with. He responds to correspondance in a timely fashion and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone in need of a family court attorney and/or knows of anyone in need of an attorney. Tim is very dedicated and passionate about his profession and his cases. I couldn't be any happier nor thankful than I am to find Attorney Sweet!! Thank you Tim for everything :)

After seeing his reviews on Avvo I met with Mr. Sweet. At first he seemed to listen to me and it felt like he was in my corner. As time went on I discovered he wasn't what he seemed to be. My back was up against the wall since my ex suddenly decided she wanted a divorce and was lawyering up. I told Mr. Sweet I needed to stay in the house since she took the kids and left me and I had no where else to go. My convoluted work schedule added to the dilemna. He was able to follow through with that as my ex went and the kids stayed with her father. When it was time for her to be served I found out that the constable wasn't able to locate her and it took approximately 3 weeks to get that done. That was almost a disaster since I thought she had been served earlier and I almost said something to her. He gave me a court date but never explained what was going to happen on that date. We were communicating by email because I thought that would simplify things and I didn't want to miss anything by using a phone. Yet as I asked the questions I found I wasn't getting complete answers. The only time I was impressed with Mr. sweet was when we had the intial meeting in court. He took over the meeting and temporary allowances were put in place. He also confronted my ex about possible adultry. I was told we would sit down again the following month but that never happened. Instead I was barraged in paperwork trying to comply with financial disclosure. I repeatedly emailed Mr. sweet about problems with my visitations and that my ex forbid that my kids be brought around my family. He placated the situation by telling me that this would be addressed at our next court date. During this time the court order stated that my kids were to attend family counseling. When I asked Mr. Sweet if I was supposed to attend, he said no. After a few weeks went by and I received an email copy of the order it stated that I was suposed to attend counceling with them. I was in disbelief. After all, my ex took the kids and my relationship with them was somewhat strained especailly with my oldest. I attempted to be integrated into the counseling sessions but my ex took over the meetings and it was a disaster. At that point she said she was not coming back to counseling so it came to an abrupt end. I addressed this to Mr. Sweet with no response. After the first continuance, when the next court date came it too was continued, but I was not made aware that we even had a court date. I guess he forgot to tell me. Strike 2. He had been in my employment now for 4 months and we were no further along than when we started. He was supposed to dipose my ex's alleged boyfriend and that never happened either. The final straw came when my ex told me she was taking our kids on vacation to Florida and our court date would be continued again. Apparently Mr. Sweet was on board with this but again neglected to consult me. This was our 3rd continuance and now we would have to wait 4 months for another court date. In the meantime nothing changed and I was responsilbe for 100 % of the medical and dental not to mention my visitations were continuing to be manipulated by my ex. After 6 months of going nowhere I finally fired him. I had paid him over $3500 and he wasn't worth $35.

Mr. Sweet was able to keep me from being charged with a felony and out of prison. He was cordial, and always responded to my calls and emails. I could'nt have asked for a more professional and compitent lawyer. Thanks Tim

Attorney Sweet is empathetic, knowledgeable, and trustworthy in family law. He dealt with some emotionally charged post divorce issues with my child and ex-wife and he was able to calm the situation not inflame it. He kept me informed at a very appropriate level.

I needed a divorce lawyer and began an online search of RI and nearby Massachusetts. I read and read the specifics each page offered most sounded revengeful and plain awful until I came across Timothy Sweets page, his website was easy to read and his 'contact' page quick to find. His references were the type I'd hope to find, words that expressed action without malice or harm. I met with Mr Sweet and found him to be what I felt true to his word. I asked for his work in helping me to achieve as peaceful as possible a divorce and he did just that! I would highly recommend Timothy Sweet to anyone.

I contacted Timothy Sweet 2 months ago. I was having great difficulty getting any help with a pension matter my ex husband and I are involved in. After we met I hired Timothy,I found that he is very professional. But also what I like is he listens and speaks with a real kind concern. He didn't ask me for a large retainer and I liked that about him.He has been keeping me informed every step of the way.Any time i have had a question,he's answered me right away. I honestly believe he has my best interest at heart. And I trust him. He seems to be a real genuine person with compassion. I am so happy his was the number i chose when i googled lawyers. This matter is still on going but having Timothy as my lawyer I feel confident. I finally have a voice and he's getting the job done.
