Professional, and a man of his word
He’s truly changed my life I recommend Pemerton to anyone who wants a powerful and compassionate attorney who is true to their word. Pemerton has done for my baby and I what I didn’t think was possible. When I was searching for an attorney ,last minute and the court date was approaching in a few days, I was lucky enough to have found him and he fit me in that Saturday to consult. He took on my custody case at a time when I thought there was no hope, and turned it around. He’s gone above and beyond for my case. Pemerton has extensive experience that is matched with a natural ability to ease the greatest of worries, such as those that come with custody cases. Communication is fantastic! I’ve been kept informed about my options and the process at all times. I know with him on my side the future of my child is secure and that is worth more than anything.

Dependency and neglect
My ex wife filed a frivolous dependency and neglect against me in which Bill was my attorney. Bill didn't leave a stone unturned in my case. We ended up winning the case!

Get the Winning Results!
Mr. Pemerton is this first and only attorney I have used that is extremely intelligent, honest, and truly caring attorney. He was the second attorney I had to hire during my divorce and custody battle, since the first one I hired was not getting results or providing proper counsel. Mr. Pemerton is an amazing "Bull Dog" of the law. He won my custody battle which was a monumental win, allowing me to move out-of-state with my son. I highly recommend him to all finding themselves in a divorce and custody situation.
