I absolutely and unequivocally recommend Kyle Farmer! I hired Kyle to represent me in what turned out to be a highly contentious divorce that included court appearances for a restraining order issued against my ex husband, a deposition, and a day-and-a-half trial - despite *many* attempts to reach agreement before ultimately going trial. My entire case was wrapped up 11 months after I made contact with Kyle, in part because of his pro-active planning, organization, execution, and expertise.
While I would not wish such a horrendous ordeal on anyone, I can say very confidently that there is no one I'd rather have represent me than Kyle. During court hearings and trial, Kyle was extremely professional and unflappable. He is polished, articulate, and calm. Over the course of nearly a year's worth of phone calls and meetings, I appreciated how well Kyle worked to present me with choices, guiding me to understanding but always making clear that in the end, *I* was the decision-maker. Kyle's compassion was balanced with a very neutral perspective that he maintained at all times; this was helpful to me in avoiding knee-jerk reaction decisions on a few occasions.
Additionally, Kyle's staff was equally easy to work with, and I found them to be highly professional and thorough in the execution of their assignments, as well as being courteous and friendly.
In the end, the judge awarded me a custody schedule that was BETTER than what I had asked for. The opposing counsel in the trial informed Kyle that he had delivered "the best closing argument of any she'd heard."
Kyle's inherent integrity, coupled with the respect he holds not only for the law but also for individual people, makes it clear that he is the only attorney you should consider hiring. I am forever grateful for the exceptional work he did in representing me.

I have used Kyle over the past 3-4 years.
He was very knowledgeable, experienced, and humble in regards to his job.
I received quick responses to emails and voicemails, usually before the day's end. He was very empathetic to my terrible situation, and made it very comfortable for me. I reside out of state, so communication, responsiveness, and being direct was a requirement for me, which Kyle surpassed with flying colors.
He helped me out, and I was granted more visitation, amongst other things, than the opposing party wished me to have.
If I was in a similar situation again, I would retain Kyle in a heartbeat. I highly recommend him.

Many expect to receive padded bills from attorney representation. I experienced this with this attorney after my action was completed. There is a meeting listed on bill that never took place to my recollection. The amount held in trust was not refunded as he told me. Additionally, there is itemization down to "processing and email...file and print for client's file." You will hire 1 attorney and actually you'll hire at least 2. You meet with the lead and then next meeting a 2nd attorney is brought in for additional fee. They will want you to continue paying the 1st attorney because he is one of the PC's owners and "must review another licensed attorney's work." Once the #2 attorney is onboard, don't expect to be talking to Kyle outside of emails and phone messages.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
