I can't thank Stuart enough for his help during what at first seemed to be an amicable divorce, that later turned out to be difficult and challenging. His knowledge and experience of the law eased my stress and anxiety throughout the process and instilled a great amount of trust. Throughout I was always well informed, my phone calls promptly returned and all my questions and concerns were addressed. I was extremely satisfied with my representation and the counsel I received. Stuart was worth every penny I paid him! That said, I highly recommend the Law Offices of Stuart C. Axilbund for his legal expertise, to anyone who wants a qualified attorney who will watch out for your interest, who can be though when necessary, but who is also understanding and compassionate. Great Attorney!

Highly Recommended
I have already recommended Stuart multiple times already since my 2018 divorce. I found Stuart to be extremely responsive to all my communications. He provided sound advice for my situation, and his years of experience and expertise were obvious. Of equal importance, he was also a good steward of my funds, not allowing our case to go down roads that would not have had beneficial results. I am truly appreciative of all he did to guide me through what was an extremely emotional and difficult process. I would recommend him without reservation.

The Best Attorney in Towon and a great person that understand your concerns.
Stuart has handled my case twice and has always been very professional and understand all concerns that I had as a father. One of the best things that I happened to me was during the most difficult time of my life was that I hired Stuart as my attorney. It makes a huge difference if you have an attorney that not only understands the law but also understand the situation you are in and advices for the best probable outcome. Stuart is always prepared and takes care of all things (no matter how small they are for your case). I would recommend to hire Stuart if you going through a divorce or child custody matters. That is one thing that will surely help you during this difficult time of yours. Thank you Stuart for all you have done for me.

Divorce Proceeding
Mr. Axilbund made this experience as pleasant as a divorce could be. He kept me informed of the process and worked diligently to ensure that the outcome I wanted was achieved. My hope is that I will not need his services again, but if I find myself in need of a divorce attorney, he will be at the top of my list.

Excellent in all respects!
Stuart is outstanding in every respect, he is always prepared, consistent in his communication and most importantly, compassionate about the impact of these events on all participants. During my legal situation it was his commitment to an outcome that benefited everyone, specifically my children's well being, that mattered most.

Great Result
Stuart handled my very contentious and financially complicated alimony case. From the beginning he was knowledgeable about the issues in my case and argued the best legal strategies against a formidable opponent on the other side. He never backed down and won the fights we needed win. I am very happy and pleased with the manner in which he conducted himself on my behalf. I would use him again in a heartbeat.

The Absolute Right Choice for Me
Mr. Axilbund was the perfect lawyer to represent me in my divorce case. He worked closely with me in helping me identify those specific needs important to me and my children and then guiding me toward securing them. He also had a complete understanding of what it meant to put my children first which was very important to me. Although mine was not a "bitter divorce," it was still a very painful and emotionally draining experience. I always found great comfort after speaking with him. His overall presence and compassion helped me to remain focused and believe that everything was going to be okay. Mr. Axilbund is a fair man, a trustworthy man, and one of the nicest lawyers I have ever had the privilege of working with. Please don't misinterpret the word "nice," though, because he was stern when he needed to be. With that being said, I could not give a higher recommendation.

Letting me take control of my life through an ugly divorce
Stuart not only let me make my own decisions, he helped me when I felt very insecure about the divorce. My ex-husband did not going along with the plan from the very beginning of the divorce that lasted almost 2 years. Stuart helped me with all his knowledge of what he knew, to help me make all the right and important decisions that were necessary to my case. Sometimes we can get stuck on petty things that really don't matter. He always kept me informed of everything that was going on. I was very blessed to have Stuart guide me through a very difficult time. Stuart let my ex-husband know that he wasn't just a lawyer who was working for me but someone that cared about what was outcome for me. That was an awesome moment when I heard Stuart say that. I know he really meant it. If you need a lawyer that is honest, trustworthy, and really cares about your situation Stuart Axilbund is the lawyer for you.

A wonderful attorney and a great person.
Mr. Axilbund walked me through the process of drafting and editing a marital settlement agreement, and then finalizing the paperwork for the actual divorce proceedings. He is professional and experienced, while at the same time kind and personable. His clarity of advice helped me get through a very difficult time in my life, and I would recommend him to anyone.

Trustworthy, Tough, Knowledgable Divorce Attorney
Stuart represented me in my divorce and was able to make me feel secure and confident at all times. He is tough when he needs to be, but is sensitive to difficult issues and can use a soft touch when necessary. I highly recommend Stuart for any divorce or custody issue.

Calm, Capable, And Compassionate
Stuart is a capable, efficient and kind lawyer who presents issues in a clear and concise manner. He is professional and caring. His fees were very reasonable and fair. I would definitely recommend him and believe he will help you to feel more relaxed and secure while facing a difficult time in life. I had no idea who to go to but read some reviews. I hope this helps someone else.

Outstanding and Highly Recommended!
Being married to a lawyer, getting divorced from one I knew was going to take someone who was top notch. Stuart was more than that. Not only is he knowledgable of the law and astute in navigating the intricacies of every nuance and scenario that was proposed during our consultations, he does so with finesse and compassion. He was able to effectively discuss strategy with reassurance and confidence which is born from years of professional experience intertwined with fundamental knowledge of human nature and his own personal relationships. Stuart has been blessed with a special blend of talent, humanitarianism, intellect, and just the right personality that women seeking to protect themselves, their assets and their children will find him to be the perfect fit. Although he certainly would represent me through this divorce process, unfortuantely I am relocating and can only pray to find someone like him in my new home state. I would highly recommend him to anyone,

Exceptional Attorney!!
When I began my search for legal representation I had absolutely no idea where to start. There are so many choices and for something so important it is critical to make the right choice. I hope this review will help others in a similar situation to take assurance that selecting Stuart Axilbund will be a wise decision. He is very astute and thorough. Through the entire process he was available and provided good advice and was able to offer a sound legal perspective. Through the actual court proceeding, Stuart was able to grasp important details and navigate well throughout as the situation evolved. He was reassuring and honest. Stuart was able to zoom in on the most important details and effectively communicate them. In a highly stressful and emotional time his professionalism, experience, and knowledge brought a calmness and quiet confidence to me. Stuart also went above and beyond meeting my family and addressing their concerns. I also appreciated his willingness to work out a payment plan with me. He was always sensitive to keeping communication concise and to the point and to make the most of our time. Stuart is very genuine and easy to talk with when sharing personal details about your case. I would without any reservation encourage anyone to utilize his services; especially other single mothers who are looking for a way to protect their children and do their best for them. You will not be disappointed. My family and I cannot thank Stuart enough for his exemplary efforts.

Highly recommended....Stuart C. Axilbund
Mr. Axilbund represented me for a divorce with contested issues concerning custody, marital assets, and finances. He took the lead on filing all necessary documents and worked with me in responding to complaints and filing counter complaints. I am able to highly recommend the services of Stuart Axibund because I was greatly satisfied in my interactions with Mr. Axilbund. His professionalism, knowledge of the law, empathy to my situation, and personable nature make it easy to write a positive review of his services. Mr. Axilbund was up front in billing, often coming up with self-help options to save on unnecessary fees and assisted with keeping our conversations on scope to limit my overhead. My concerns were addressed in a timely manner and answered to my satisfaction. If I have a need for services in the future, Mr. Axilbund would be my first call. If you are in need of lawyer services I would suggest that he be your first call as well.

Solid legal advice in uncertain times
I found Mr. Axilbund through a little online reserach. I was looking for an A+ lawyer to help me with a custody case to get more time with my daughter. On first meeting him I was immediately impressed. He didn't promise me the world, but instead explained how he felt different points to my case might be addressed. He talked about the "important" things and came across as a man who knew what he was doing. I also had the opportunity to see him at work on another case before my custody hearing. Very impressed. His experience shows in a court room setting. In the end, I got everything I was asking for plus things that I hadn't even considered. There's no doubt in my mind that without Mr. Axilbund's help I would not have done so well. Anyone considering Mr. Axilbund for representation should meet him in person. From that point the decision is easy. Thanks again for all your help.

Excellent! Will always call!
Mr. Axilbund was the first lawyer I ever needed. He was very knowledgeable about my child custody and is still currently working/helping with my child support. Anytime I would email him he was always very quick to response. I will most defiantly call him in the future in ever needed again.
