For anyone reading this review let me upfront about Mr. Forman, he will not come off warm & fuzzy. If you want a lawyer to listen to your story and then comfort you during this stressful part of your life, move on this is not the lawyer for you. But if you want a lawyer that is very ethical and extremely knowledgeable in SC family law then your search is over.
I had spoken with several lawyers over the last 3 years on a parenting plan that I agreed to, but put my ex in a position that allowed her discretion in several important areas, which she used for years to prevent me from seeing my son more or talking to him during the week.
How knowledgeable is this lawyer? Well, I spoke to 4 lawyers over years and none of them had any insight that could help in my situation. When I spoke with Mr. Forman he made me aware of some aspects of my parenting plan that no other lawyer brought to my attention. Mr. Forman filed contempt against my ex, which was scheduled for a 2 hours but ended up being over 3 hours. My ex’s lawyer was trying to bring up technicalities and some very weak arguments, but Mr. Forman was all over it. Mr. Forman is a beast in the courtroom. You hire this man to be your lawyer, know you are hiring one of the best if not the best family lawyer in South Carolina. I had a law firm recommend him and made that statement about him and I completely agree.
I felt he had total control of the courtroom and just annihilated the other lawyer. I couldn’t stop talking to friends and family for days about how well my lawyer was in court. I got everything I wanted in my case, Mr. Forman is worth every penny!
Oh ya, I almost forgot to mention his fast communication. He is incredible on how fast he will respond to you. I would email my lawyer when I was at work and make a big deal with my co-workers about how my lawyer will respond. Its very normal for him to respond within 15 minutes or less.
