I retained Greg for a custody case that I had reopened after losing several years prior. Being a military member stationed in another state, I knew I had a huge uphill battle and it was going to take an experienced attorney with a strong track record to have any hope. I found Greg on this very website and saw that he had overwhelmingly positive reviews and, in particular, the reviewers had praised him for his accessibility and prompt communication, something that many attorneys--in my experience--are severely lacking on. Living out of state, it was very important that my attorney was not only capable, but also reachable.
With that said, Greg was simply amazing, not only for his incredible knowledge and skill, but he worked with a passion and persistence that gave me a peace of mind that I had not experienced with any other attorney. Communication was constant, I received replies within hours, even on weekends and holidays. It was unbelievable how engaged he was from start to finish. Even more unbelievable was his passion for saving me money. During mediation, he drafted the final order, something he said he liked to do because it saved his clients money if he didn't have to charge for the time at mediation and the time to draft the order later. An attorney that doesn't try to squeeze every penny out of the client AND looks for ways to save them money? Was I dreaming? I knew I wasn't dreaming when I received a check in the mail from him that was a refund for the unused portion of my retainer. Yes, I said refund. Again, unbelievable!
Another reviewer mentions that Greg is not empathetic, and they are right. If you are looking for empathy go to a therapist, if you are looking for an attorney that will work your case like you are the only client he has, with a level of knowledge and skill that can level the playing field for you in even the toughest cases, Greg Forman is the attorney for you. Without doubt or hesitation I would highly recommend him and would absolutely retain him again should the need ever arise.

We hired Gregory to assist in a TPR/Adoption and name change of my daughter. He completed this with ease. He was more than prepared to ensure that we had the best chance of a positive ruling. While, we thought we would have a relinquishment prior to actually having to try the case, we did not receive this news. However, Greg managed to navigate the ever-changing aspects of the case. Taking action inside the courtroom truly showed me that he was worth every penny that I had spent. He was prepared, confident, and poised.
He is blunt/to the point, but if you read his blog you will realize that he doesn't believe in empathy. It isn't his job, it is his job to represent your best interest. This, threw me off at first, but once I saw the other side of Greg after spending two full days with him; my true opinion changed greatly. He doesn't just care about the case, but your family, your children, and your interest.
I would now not only consider Greg an amazing, competent, and knowledge attorney; but, I would consider him a friend. He is an amazing person and truly will take a no nonsense approach to representing you in the best possible manner.

I retained Greg Forman to help me with my grandchild's custody case, I lived out of state and my first thought was "Oh No, they are going to rob me blind!" Let me tell you Greg was very honorable, professional and conscious of his billings. My first invoice was truly my first chance to really breath that I made the perfect choice! Greg was very upfront with me from the start and his demeanor was very professional, kind and aggressive, a trait that was needed and especially in court. He knows the laws and is very knowledgeable in his chosen profession, as he helps other attorneys in the area and knows who to go to if needed. I would definitely hire him again. Definitely call him and interview with him, it will be well worth your time.

We retained Mr Forman twice. The first time was to adopt 3 children and the second time to adopt one more. He was very honest about the process and what to expect. His rates are affordable and we always knew where our money went. He responds back in a timely manner.

Greg represented me in my child custody case - his counsel was stellar and the outcome was extremely favorable. As one can imagine a child custody case can be stressful, emotionally challenging, and financially draining but Greg kept my costs down significantly, prepared me for what to expect all along the way so there were no surprises, and helped keep me in check when tensions would rise between my ex and I. I could not have gotten through such a challenging time of my life without receiving the level of representation he was able to provide. I would recommend Greg to anyone going through divorce, a custody case, or complex family court issues.

I hired Mr. Forman to modify my child support. Mr. Forman is the best lawyer I have ever had. I wish I would have know about him when I first filed for a divorce.
Mr. Forman is very direct, to the point, and did not waste mine or my family's money. His knowledge of the law and service he provides is invaluable. I would highly recommend Gregory Forman to anyone that needs a family court lawyer, is going through a divorce, or has child support.

I cannot say how grateful I am to have hired Greg to represent me!!! I can go on all day about how great he was as a lawyer, counsel, and someone I now feel I can call a friend, but I will keep it brief. When I started looking for a lawyer for my custody case I was looking for someone who was knowledgeable, empathetic, and determined to help me reach or exceed my goal of true 50/50 custody of my daughter. Being a guy and having little faith in the courts I felt my plea would never fully be heard. I contacted Greg on Super Bowl Sunday after having finely being fed up with my current situation with my daughter. Thinking he wouldn't respond until the next day, to my surprise he responded almost immediately to see what he could do to help, and thats a behavior that has never stopped. He was really the first lawyer I had contacted, but I knew if he had time to respond to me on a Sunday evening and Super Bowl Sunday at that, I knew I could depend on him to always be there for me like that. The rest is history basically. I got exactly what I was looking for plus more!!
He is extremely knowledgeable in the law and always found ways to break it down in laments terms when I didn't understand all of the legal jargon. I explained to him what I was trying to accomplish and he did everything in his power to make sure my goal was accomplished. It was times when my plea to the courts to gain true 50/50 custody of my daughter looked very meek, but Greg counseled me in those times and assured me that we were going to get through this together and he was going to do everything in his power to make sure I got what I wanted. He told me things to do to keep my mind off of things and ways to stay sane during the madness. He always gave me the pros and cons of my wants and instructed me on the best course of action. It was not one time during my entire court case that I had to wait any longer than 5 mins to hear back from Greg when I contacted him about something.
I can sit hear today and say without Greg's assistance I would not be able to sit here today saying that I now have true 50/50 custody of my daughter. He was also able to get me back a good portion of the money I had to spend for my custody case and GAL fees. If you want the best, hire the best! I am glad that I wasn't on the receiving end of having to go against Greg in court. He is a beast in the court room literally!! He made me want to be a lawyer after seeing how he rebutted things and defended me. I can truly say every dollar I spent was worth it because of his service. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone that is looking for the best lawyer in Charleston, SC!!

Greg Forman represented me when I needed help collecting child support / arrears. He acted very professional and was extremely helpful in finalizing a settlement. He worked tirelessly throughout the proceedings and was always available to provide updates, answer questions and give advice. He quickly gets down to business during all appointments, because he knows that his time is your money. His ability to out-maneuver and out-prepare the opposing counsel resulted in a legal victory for me and my two children, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing a Family Law Attorney.

Mr. Forman assisted me in a very difficult divorce more than 10 years ago and helped me again 2 years ago when ex- spouse continued to stalk me. He has brought peace to my life after 30 years of turmoil. I would highly recommend Mr. Forman. He is very knowledgeable about family law and was easily contacted when problems arose.
