Mr. Pace has been our Family Attorney for 20yrs now. He has always been just a phone call away for any personal or legal questions we have. He is not only kind hearted but very compassionate and explains everything thoroughly and in detail. The results in hiring Mr. Pace have always worked in our favor, and we have never been disappointed . I highly recommend David Pace for any and ALL legal matters . I would give this more than 5 stars if it allowed me too.

Excellent
David help us intervene in a dependency case and request custody of a relative. He is knowledgeable, straightforward and caring. We were successful in gaining full custody due to his expertise. We had a best case scenario outcome.

David Pace review
I really appreciate the one on one consulting. The expertise in what to expect from the judge. The cost was a little bit more than I anticipated but I got basically what I asked for.

Outstanding, thorough, and caring!
David represented me in a child custody/defense contempt of court case. It was a very stressful time for our family, and especially my 3 children. David assured us from day one that he would be able to take care of it for us and when our day in court finally came, he did not disappoint! Our family finally feels so free of the constant threats from my ex husband. Our quality of life has improved 100%! We are so thankful to have had David to represent us!

Amazing attorney and firm!
New Beginnings Family Law is an awesome firm. Everyone was so reassuring, understanding and kind. The first person I met was my attorney David Pace. He was a great listener and then very clear on what my options were. He is my third attorney to take my divorce case, but the first to actually finish the case. Others stopped working on the case because of my lack of money. David did not. He took my case at no cost. I am so thankful for his help. The next person I worked with was Brandy, client care coordinator, who was very sweet and let me know that everyone in that office was there for me. The next person I worked with was Krissy, the paralegal. She was awesome. Always had a great smile and helped me with specific wording and then explaining them to my husband. I didn’t want to sign the paperwork together, it would feel awkward to me, Krissy took the time to let us come in separately (despite they are taking my case cost-free) and explained everything to both of us. I can not leave out of this review the wonderfully sweet front desk associate. Everyone at this firm was amazing. I suggest this firm to anyone who is in need of family law. Thank you again, New Beginnings Family Law, especially David Pace, Krissy, and Brandy. ~Brandi Wilson~

An Excellent Attorney
We went to Mr David Pace with a child custody case that seemed like an impossible case. we were told it would be a waste of time and money to hire an attorney. Mr Pace herd me tell about how my great nice was being taken from us ,not just listened but he heard us! Others said this could not be done Mr Pace said we can do this and we will. Mr Pace is a confident and excellent lawyer. We have custody of our precious baby girl thanks to David Pace.

Mr. Pace was recently my attorney for my divorce. He was patient and thoughtfully explained each step of this terrible process. He is very knowledgeable and thorough. David and the staff at New Beginnings helped me through a very difficult time. I would highly recommend him.

Best Divorce Lawyer I Could Have Had
Well it's officially been exactly 4 months since my divorce wrapped up and I wanted to revisit this site to comment on my attorney, David Pace. I was very lucky to have been paired up with him. David possessed the very unique combination of the ability to fully comprehend the details of my case, while fully appreciating the big picture and practical realities of the current situation. He was diligent in his representation and guided me through the entire process. This was the most traumatic event in my adult life and the compassion and direction he showed was not only appreciated, it was needed. David kept me on track and it was nice to truly know I had someone looking out for my best interest. If I ever needed a lawyer, David would be the first person I called.

Said nothing i could do
Had a consultation with David. After sending him all the ct papers to review, I am not sure he reviewed them. Basically said sorry that there was nothing we could do. Kind of forgot to tell me that as a respondent I needed to show up at the ct hearing or the Judge would assume I didn’t care. Very important info to miss. I am now going it on my own, will show up to prove I love my grand children. A definite waste of $300.

Response from David Pace January 30, 2020
I am sorry about any misunderstanding that may have arisen out of our consultation. I did review the documents you sent, we spent an hour going through them in detail, and based on the way we ended our conversation I understood I had answered all the questions you had. If you have any other questions or concerns, I would be happy to discuss them with you further.

An unaggressive and unrespected lawyer
If you need an attorney who will fight for your rights, Pace is NOT your guy. During trial, he didn't object to hearsay evidence about me and he did not object when my civil rights were violated. The few times he tried to object, the court didn't even rule on it, but rather just told the other lawyer to continue. Do yourself a favor and choose someone who will stand up for you and for himself as well.

Response from David Pace February 13, 2020
As a firm, we want to acknowledge your review and express that we are troubled that you did not consider your experience with our firm to be satisfactory. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you directly to attempt to resolve any concerns you may have. While the Rules of Professional Conduct prevent us from discussing the specifics of your case in a public forum and we respect our clients’ (and former clients’) confidentiality, we believe we did all we could do under the relevant circumstances and the time constraints that existed, to assist you with your case. Unfortunately, there are times in family law cases where the Court does not agree with the arguments and contentions made by one party or the other and his/her attorney and times when the Court’s timelines dictate that certain matters must be heard within a set timeframe. We wish you all the best.
