When I first met Damon at a divorce seminar I already planned on hiring another highly recommended attorney. When I told Damon who I had planned on hiring he told me the attorney was very good and I was making a great choice in hiring him. I then spoke with Damon briefly about my divorce and what I was hoping to accomplish. He told me I was never going to get what I was planning on asking for. I couldn't believe how honest and straightforward he was. I felt very comfortable with Damon because I never felt he was trying to persuade me to hire him instead of my original choice for an attorney. Although I did not know anything about Damon and spoke with him for only a short time, I decided to follow my gut and hire him. This was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made!
I have to admit that I was initially somewhat anxious about my decision to hire Damon because he was significantly younger and did not have as many years of experience as the original attorney I was going to hire. My husband was also an attorney, so Damon was going up against 2 attorneys who began their careers before Damon even graduated high school. Damon assured me he felt confident in his ability to represent me in my divorce, and he definitely proved it to be true.
The most difficult part of my divorce was knowing and accepting that the lives of my kids and me were in the hands of another person. I had to trust that Damon understood my needs, respected my decisions, and was looking out for the best interest of my kids and me. After being married to an attorney who was neither supportive nor trustworthy, the thought of trusting anyone was terrifying, especially another attorney. Throughout my almost year long divorce Damon continuously reassured me he had my back and was protecting my kids and me. He supported my decisions, yet was also very direct and firm when he felt I was being unrealistic or losing focus. Damon was not only an amazing attorney who helped me get almost everything I felt I needed to effectively support my kids, he was also a strong emotional support when I needed it during my lowest moments. There are no words to describe how thankful I am for everything Damon has done to help my kids and me.
In addition to being a huge support, Damon was very mindful of my financial situation and did everything possible to keep the cost of my divorce to a minimum. His rates were more than fair and I know that unlike most attorney's do, he did not charge me for every minute he spent working on my case.
I hope I never need to hire an attorney again, but if I do I know without a doubt it will be Damon.
