Mr. Hitchings did an excellent job with my divorce and custody case. Had a very complicated custody with multiple children involved and an ex which was very manipulative. Had to go to court multiple times due to the complexity of the custody. If Tim said he was going to do something he did it. He is very straightforward and honest. He gets to know you so he can better understand what needs to be done. He actually cares about everyone involved in the case and wants what is best for all, especially the children involved. He will meet with you as often as need be to make you comfortable before going to court and throughly go over all paperwork involved. I had many,many pages of documents that I had to send to Tim and he went over every email that I sent him and called me on many occasions if something didn't make sense. Bottom line is HE CARES. If I had to do it all over, I would not change a thing. He guided me in the right direction every step of the way.

Hired Mr.Hitchings for a child custody matter. Not only did he make promises he did not keep, the custody situation is in more of a mess after allowing him to represent me. At court, he didn't actually defend me, he repeatedly asked the other party and their witnesses for birth dates and other irrelevant information. He failed to submit my witness paperwork to the court and he failed to use the documentation I had on the other party in regard to my child. He literally should've just worked for the other party, that's how little he "helped." He allowed for a drug addict father to have way more custody than needed and on top of that charged me extra to answer questions I had about the custody order, and he didn't even answer my questions! Don't waste the consult fee money, or the retainer fee money!

Good lawyer who helped me twice: Once with my son when he was a juvenile and also with a personal family matter. Both times he was compassionate and very thorough.
