Divorce lawyer
Brittany is very insightful and great at explaining the law in a way that makes you feel at ease. She’s very common patient with you and explains the steps that will happen next. She has helped me through a four year a custody battle. She is quite the bulldog in the court room and I’m very fortunate for her to be fighting for me in my girls.

Very Intelligent and goes the extra mile!
She help me and my family during the strange year that was 2020. Her attention to detail and explaining things to us was the best we've could've hoped to have happened!

Brittany helped me through a nearly 2 year probate case.
Gates Law and I just completed a nearly 2 year long probate case involving over 5 different parties and countless red tape and legal roadblocks. Brittany worked with not only me, but other parties involved and made everything simple and much less complicated so that we could understand and make the best decisions for the family. She successfully navigated sensitive legal situations including vacating a home with delinquent tenants, transferring trustee duties, and many more that I can't possibly remember. I will undoubtedly be recommending her to any friends or family members should they need legal help. Thanks, Brittany!

Professional and Accessible
I hired Ms. Gates for a civil matter and I was extremely impressed by her professionalism. We maintained constant contact throughout the long court process, and Ms. Gates explained everything clearly and thoroughly. I would highly recommend Ms. Gates for any case you may have.

I would recommend Brittany to anyone going through divorce!
Brittany was very professional and helped me with my divorce case. I came to her after hiring a large law firm in Nashville whom I paid a significant amount of money. My case was drug out for more than 2 years, and that office did nothing other than take my money and shift me around to different people in the practice, solving nothing. Brittany was my only contact, I could reach her directly and she would always respond. She definitely helped me out and got my divorce finalized. I would recommend her to anyone.

A great Attorney
She really helped me with my contested divorce. The divorce its self dragged on for over a year,but during that time she was very professional. I'd call and ask for advice and she'd get back with me in a timely manner. She helped keep me sane through the entire divorce proceedings such a God's send. I'd highly recommend her.

Highly Recommended
Brittany Kurdziel has represented me in two business acquisitions including a commercial real estate transaction. She drafted and negotiated multiple contracts all while being very professional and punctual.

Terrible experience
One of the worst experience with a business professional. Full of false promises. Had 8 weeks of no movement on my case, she stated she filed multiple documents on my behalf and had a hearing set. She did not serve my ex on time and nothing was ever filed by her on my behalf. Do not recommend. She took the full retainer and now I have to start all over and pay another lawyer. My case went no where under her counsel.

It is disappointing that you feel as if you had a poor experience. The full retainer was not paid in full in this specific matter, and despite this, extensive work was performed on both pending cases. Work performed on a case that turned into a highly contested divorce resulted in legal fees being incurred that far exceeded what was paid to the law office and also exceeded the total retainer fee should it have been paid. Additionally, please be mindful that retainer agreements outline whether a case is flat fee or billed at an hourly rate. Documents were prepared and filed, a court appearance occurred with another court date scheduled. This work was performed timely. Communication was consistent. Invoices were also heavily discounted as a courtesy to the client. We wish you the best of luck in the future.

Hire at own risk
She told me she charge 2500 for a divorce. After paying her $2500 she wanted and extra $400 a month for each month she drag the case out. She filled a motion to remove herself after going thru this divorce for 7 months. On that same day I was able to reach an agreement with my ex-wife and her attorney the same day. She didn't care about me in the matter being our only line of communication was text then went to only email. I thought this was unprofessional. Hire at your own risk be sure to ask about any extra fees or charges for her service.

Dear Mike, It is unfortunate that this was your impression of our working relationship as I feel I was able to accomplish an extremely great outcome at the pendent lite hearing. The initial retainer fee was for a contested divorce and the method of billing was outlined in the contract signed by you. Clients are billed hourly. Once the billing in your specific case exceeded the retainer fee, rather than demand the full monthly payment upfront, I offered to work with you on a payment plan as a courtesy. I was diligent in responding to your questions and concerns by email, text, phone as well as multiple in person meetings. I am pleased you were able to resolve your case.

Response from Brittany Gates April 19, 2024
I did not take a case with these specific facts. I am extremely familiar with each one of my clients. I would state that this was never a client of mine.

Uncontested divorce
I was a client of Brittany Kurdziel. I had filed an uncontested divorce in davidson county. I hired Brittany to finish the divorce for $750. I'm no closer to being divorced and I have to hire another attorney for $1000 to get it done.
Response from Brittany Gates March 14, 2018
In order to maintain confidentiality I will not address this specific client by name, nor will I go into specific details regarding the case. When a new client retains an attorney after a complaint has been filed pro se, many issues arise, as was the case here. Without the assistance of a legal professional at the time of filing, the pro se litigant filed the complaint for divorce in the improper county. After filing pleadings with the court, the Judge determined that the proper place to file this matter was in another county and by statute, he was unable to grant the divorce in this specific county. My job was to move the case forward, rather than having it dismissed. After the proper jurisdiction was determined, I submitted all necessary pleadings to the court to have the case properly transferred. Because our retainer agreement was specifically for an uncontested divorce in a specific county, a new retainer agreement would have had to be signed to allow me to continue representing this client outside of the county the case was initially filed and the retainer would have included my time for travel and drafting another MDA. Please contact me at your earliest convenience as I am still receiving updated information on your case. Please contact my work cell phone at 615-517-9490 as soon as possible. Thank you

Poor communication and never followed up
We hired her over a year ago to handle a very straight forward case that should have take 1 month in total. We gave money for filing and for deposit and never saw anything done after 12 months of calling, emailing. She had every excuse under the sun as to why things were post poned and had many family emergencies used as excuses and never followed up as promised over and over again. Very disappointed and will never use in the future. Just a waste of money.

To Whom This May Concern: While I am unaware of this specific matter, and unable to confirm that you in fact, are an actual client of mine who has fulfilled the client contractual obligations, I would encourage you to contact me to resolve this matter. As all of my clients are aware, I am available 7 days a week, and my personal cell phone is also provided for any emergencies which I always answer after hours. I pride myself on my excellent communication and accessibility to my clients at all times, and in any emergency I always respond in less than 24 hours. While any case may appear to be simple, no case can be resolved within a months time span unless each and every term is agreed upon. Trial and the trial preparation process is not short, and typically takes 3-6 months just for the discovery process. Unfortunately the death of my father, grandfather and cousin in a few weeks did require me to leave town for a duration of five work days, however I can guarantee that this did not in any way impact any case. Once again, I still am not aware that you are an actual client of mine. Regardless, I take pride in my work and will absolutely respond to any/all ratings, whether positive or negative.
