Being referred to Jace by a Chesterfield County Judge, I came to Jace as my world was shattering around me. I was scared, sad, and lost. Being the mother of two very small children, I was exhausted trying to maintain a sense of normalcy for their sake, while simultaneously preparing for the fight of my life.
When I first met Jace, I was greeted with a calm, cool, intelligent divorce lawyer - the polar opposite of what you would expect in this situation. With my basket of emotions most people going through a divorce carry around with them, he was able to sort through them, calming all of my greatest fears. He also worked with a sense of purpose and reality, helping to prioritize my life and figure out what was really worth fighting for. He answered every call. He replied to every email. He meet with me any time I asked.
A year later, I was victorious. I was able to rebuild my life with everything I set out to have. My children and myself were happy and together, all fought for with dignity and grace - a precedent set forth by Jace Padden.

I've come to Jace with a variety of situations in the past 6 years and he has never once given me a reason to doubt his expertise in the legal field. I won't consider going to court with anyone else, and have never walked into a courtroom with a lack of confidence in my legal representation. I have never been disappointed or upset by a result with Jace as my representative, he has always pulled through for me on the best case scenario. In my opinion he is legitimately the best option I have for all legal matters, he knows what he's doing and he doesn't mess around in this business. Would and have recommended him to friends and family, can not commend him enough for what he deserves in this field.

Nothing causes your emotions to flare and blaze more than when your children are involved. Add a contentious separation to that mix, and you have a potential emotional powder keg.
Jace is one of the most adept I've ever met at both negotiating and helping you to negotiate these times. He is technically gifted, with a masterful understanding of the legal system. He is meticulous, ensuring that proceedings are not hampered by oversight or misstep. He is well connected, well respected, and extremely professional in his approach.
But these things are not his strongest suit. Above all, Jace is a compassionate and understanding human being - and this is what makes me so very thankful I had his experience and wisdom as I set forth into the unknown. Never once did I feel as if my frustration and angst with the process was fed by his own; even knowing that he too was feeling these things. I was never made to feel like a client or a case. I was a father trying to do the right thing for his children and for the person I had shared a large part of my life with. This is what he continually brought me back to when I was in the midst of a confusing or blinding development. In many cases, I was told the exact opposite of what I *wanted* to hear, instead being guided by what I *needed* to hear. To this day, he counseled me with one of the most sage statements I've had spoken to me; so simple on the surface, but rich in the meaning: "If you wake up every morning to the mirror, look yourself in the eyes, and can say you're honestly doing what you feel is right - then we're doing ok."
If you're searching for someone who "gets" what Family Law is really about, Jace is the person you need at your side.
