Godsend
We had a terrible tragedy in our family and needed the aid of a family lawyer immediately to help care for a child who lost two parents. I don’t think words will do justice to the treatment we received from Mr. Fyler, Jennie and the staff. You know someone is a quality person when their body language shows compassion. Another good indicator of a good person is when they do not know something they find someone who does. An exemplary person dies both of these things and puts forth diligent work and service. Mr. Fyler holds all of these qualities. He asked for help when he was not sure of a specific law or procedure. He advocated for us. He empathized with us and made our case a priority. What could have taken months was handled within a few weeks and a child was able to sleep knowing she had guardians to protect her. I wish we did not have to meet this staff under these circumstances but I feel blessed that they were the ones we chose to guide us through it. I highly recommend this law firm and especially Charles Fyler. When you hire Mr. Fyler you’re lucky enough to have Jennie on your side too. Someone who brings a smile in a sea of tears.

Great to work with!
Mr Flyer was easy to work with. Him and his staff made me feel extremely comfortable and at ease. I knew what I wanted, what I didn’t and he set my expectations. I enjoyed working with him.

Couldn't have expected more
Charles possesses the ability to clearly define the most important objectives in a case. He guided me throughout the entire process and delivered exactly what he set out to accomplish on my behalf. Things went exactly as he said they would and his calculations were accurate down to the penny. Choosing an attorney can be the most important decision you make. Choose Charles.

Mr. Fyler was excellent
I searched the Internet for "lawyer evaluations" and I found Mr. Charles Fyler. The positive reviews that he has received are accurate. My wife and I had a very good experience through a difficult legal process, due entirely to Mr. Fyler. In all of our meetings, he was very informative, patient and understanding. I got the feeling that he genuinely cared about us. In addition, he put for the extra effort ("above and beyond") to make things go smoothly. Not once, did I feel like a "dollar sign" or just a bother to his busy day. When he made an appointment, he was on time and we did not feel rushed through the process. I wish I had doctors with the same caring attitude of Mr. Fyler. You cannot go wrong trusting him to take care of you. Thank you very much, Mr. Fyler!

I made my life easy-I trusted Charlie!
Bankruptcy is not easy for anyone. Charlie handled all the details in a timely fashion. If I had a question, he had an answer. That's the type of attorney you want handling your case, so you can get on with your life.

Money spender
I hired Mr. Fyler to handle my case between my ex husband and I for parenting plan modifications as well as some serious parenting time problems. Thousands of dollars later including hiring a guardian atlitem my kids never met and 2 years later... Never saw a judge, got charged to draft documents for the judge that unknowing to only my self couldn’t be filed cause Processes hadn’t been followed. Allowed my ex husband to cover his tracks of years worth nonsense.. Never got communications that were happening lawyer to lawyer.. Got charged for documents to be drafted that were incorrect that then needed to be redrafted on my money of course. When I talked to him on the phone, email or in person it was as if he had no clue on my case. Every time had to “refresh” his memory on very important matters in my case. Go solo before you spend your money here is my recommendation.

Incompetent Attorney
We hired Charles for a family law case regarding relocation. We didn't have any experience hiring an attorney, but assumed that because he was part of a Family Law practice that he knew family law- He knows bankruptcy. To say he dropped the ball on our case is an understatement. We hired him for a relocation case- my ex wanted to take my daughter to Illinios. He seemed like he had it under control- the filings were well written (ill give him that), and he was prompt and met all the deadlines. We had given him a binder of all the things we had collected over the years (attendance records, etc.) and wrote up multiple pages of the benefits of keeping my daughter in the state so we did a lot of the work for him. As we crept closer to the hearing, he began to be unsure of where the case was going. He took off ten days of vacation right before our trial to visit Maine, and returned 2 days before- didn't even occur to him to move his vacation or cut it short so he could adequately prepare for our trial. Our trial date came and he was a nervous mess- he had never litigated a family law case before- would've been good to know that. He kept my fiance outside the courtroom as she was a "potential witness", except that during lunch when I filled her in on everything going on, he admitted that he hadn't had ANY questions drafted to ask her on stand and he wasn't sure he was going to even use her! She was THE BEST PERSON to attest for me as a father and person, and he did't even use her! What attorney does that?! I was so disgusted with his performance at trail that when it was over I just walked away. I couldn't even look at him. He didn't understand family law to the basic extent that you cannot seek any child support to be retroactively applied once a final order has been entered- so the few thousand I could've received as a credit was lost because he didn't ask for it during the hearing. He told me in an email later that I would have to file a petition and have another hearing- WRONG. Can't do that! So not only did I lose out on the money that I paid him, I lost out on that money too. When I had a meeting with him and his boss a few weeks after trial to talk about how that could compensate me for his poor performance, they told me that there was nothing they could do and that Charles "felt really bad about it". I wonder if he still feels bad about it all these years later? I still feel bad and hurt that I only see my child a few times a year. I completely understand that no attorney can control the outcome of a case, but they can control themselves and what they portray themselves as. And for Charles to portray himself as a competent family law attorney is just wrong. I hope you read this Charles and know that we're still in this situation, and dealing with the consequences of hiring you to handle our case.
