Child Custody
Cory is an incredible attorney with attention to detail that is unheard of. I was truly befuddled by his commitment to the betterment of my child and the wellbeing of me and my family. A true advocate for the truth and a very honorable person with an amazing moral and ethical compass.

Honorable Lawyer and Man
This review took some time for me to figure out exactly what I wanted to say about Mr. Ricci because he handled my case with that much knowledge, class, and confidence; I could never thank him enough. My situation was an interesting one, but he took it on confidently and methodically. I called a dozen or more offices trying to find someone to take on my case, and everyone I spoke with either didn’t seem to have the time, or they didn’t think my goal was attainable. My case involved my kids’ mental health and well-being, so I was determined to find someone that would fight with me. When I first spoke with Mitzi and Mr. Ricci, they were understanding and empathetic for my situation and immediately wanted to help. He knew the steps to take first to get things moving, and quickly! Time was a big factor in the beginning of my case. I trusted him so going forward, everything he asked of me, I did. And it paid off. He was prepared all the time, at every hearing and at trial. Mr. Ricci is incredibly knowledgeable with laws and is detail oriented and focused. He truly is incredible at what he does - compassionate, but also knows how to simply get things done. I would recommend him first above all others, to anyone needing a lawyer for divorce, child custody, or child support matters. He holds true to his values and what’s right. You can definitely put your trust in him!

Absolutely awesome guy!
Cory was very down to earth and straight to the point, I had numerous charges involving marijuana that he was able to get in retirement on my record with no charges! Then he was able to keep those same charges in retirement, while I faced a dui that he worked down to a dwi with no probation lesser fines and no jail time! Throughout every process he walked me through everything that could possible happen and always tried to go for the easiest route out immediately! He’s definitely the man you want fighting for you in your corner because I haven’t lost using him one time yet!

Great Attorney
I went to Cory for my divorce after he was highly recommended numerous times on a local Facebook page. He was really easy to talk to and both he and Mitzi were proactive in getting my case filed and always responded to me with updates very quickly and were always quick to reply when I needed them. Cory was able to resolve my case in a way that best suited my needs with as little pain points as possible. My situation had great potential to be a very volatile and stressful one, but Cory was able to help both sides come to an agreement without it erupting into a tumultuous court hearing. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

The absolute BEST!
Cory Ricci is the epitome of professional legal counsel and a Godsend for my son and I. He earned my trust completely by being available each time I needed him and by always offering highly educated, sound advice. Which, in turn, gave me priceless relief of any apprehension I endured throughout my case. He went beyond all measure to make sure my case was strong in a court that seemed set in traditional ways before I entered its doors and presented a defense so overwhelming that it may very well have set a breakthrough precedent for other families who follow with my same situation. He is a gentleman with morals who treated me with respect and genuine care for my concerning predicament. Throughout our time preparing for trial, he left me with no doubt as to how he has represented past clients and knows no other way than to treat future clients the same. He made me feel safe and comfortable on the stand when I was terrified my voice couldn’t express what my heart was willing the judge to hear. His stance and line of questioning made my heart pour out all that needed to be said, with ease. Every line of work requires great ambition and dedication to become great. Cory exceeded my expectations not by only having both the ambition and dedication to be great. He exceeded them by sharing the gift of what he was born to do, and that is to seek justice and help hold accountable, the unjust. To say I highly recommend him would be an understatement. To all who need the best representation one could ask for, you absolutely cannot go wrong by having this man as your attorney. He doesn’t stop fighting for what is right. My son and I are living proof that you will not walk away disappointed of his representation. You will walk away knowing without a doubt that he poured everything he had in him into your case. I have never been so thankful.

Highly Recommend
Retained Cory to handle my unfortunate divorce... He was extremely professional. I never found myself having to call his office with any questions regarding this case, either himself or his assistant Mitzi were ON TOP of everything. They let me know in great detail what meant what and what to expect throughout. Being new to this I was very scared going in but the entire staff made it much easier to deal with. Cory did EVERYTHING that I asked of him and at times he even advised me when to keep my mouth closed for my best interest which is something I've never been good at. Cory was very tenacious in the courtroom and made clear to the defendant he would not settle for less than what we came to court for. He went above and beyond in my opinion! Very personable, diligent, and organized. Also called after everything was done just to check on how life was moving forward. 10/10 recommend.

Fantastic experience
I hired Cory in 2021 while going through custody issues with my child. Not only was he professional and thorough, but he was also kind and showed compassion throughout our case. I am very pleased with the outcome and will definitely use Cory if needed again.

The best!
My daughter got herself into some trouble with the school, I already had heard about the office and how amazing they were from another friend, but what I experienced was greater than I expected. Cory is so nice and down to earth. I work in litigation so I find myself a bit apprehensive towards attorneys and Cory reminded me why I shouldn't blanket label people because he is absolutely opposite of any negative interaction I've ever had. I will always recommend him and this office first to anyone who asks!

Best Lawyer Around
I first met Cory in 2020. I had a couple of consults over the phone with a bunch of lawyers in 2020. I need someone to represent me in a very high conflict divorce and custody battle. When I called Cory, I knew it would be a good match. He didn’t judge me for my past or look down on me for anything. He took on the year and a half mess of a divorce. If I had questions on a Sunday, at 8pm, it didn’t matter. Cory texted me back and would proceed to email the other party’s representation. He got the best outcome for me in that. In early 2022, I hired him again for a separate custody matter. Cory went above and beyond, again, and got the exact outcome I asked for. He is kind, understanding, and quite honestly funny and laid back. When it comes to court and being in front of a judge, he is tenacious, aggressive, and most importantly- extremely prepared. I will hire him for as long as he’ll represent me if I need another lawyer. He is a fabulous person and lawyer.

All around excellent!
Cory represented me as I filed a parenting plan for my son. I was clueless about the process, so I met with Cory and he not only answered all of my questions in a manner I was able to understand, but also walked me through the entire process and made sure I knew what to expect. I barely lifted a finger throughout the entire process, and if I did happen to need anything, Cory and his team were quick to respond to me and answer my questions. I highly recommend Cory!

Cory is great!
We used Cory for a step parent adoption case after seeing his name recommended a lot on social media. He was the first lawyer I contacted and I knew it was a perfect fit after our first phone call. He explained everything very clearly and was quick to answer any questions I had. He even took my phone call while on a vacation. Very nice guy, very knowledgeable too. Our process was very simple and it was a genuine pleasure getting to work with and meet Cory and his paralegal Mitzi. Thank you guys so much.

Personal, considerate, professional
We found Cory almost by accident. We needed an attorney in his area for help with a significant legal issue. We came across his name, read a few reviews, then called his office. It turned out to be the best decision we could have made. Cory is genuinely kind. Yes, he knows the legal system, knows the process, and provides sound counsel, but I was most impressed by his kindness and his responsiveness. He made himself available nights, weekends, and holidays to ensure our needs were met. He clearly explained every step along the way. He told us what to expect and likely outcomes and was consistently correct. Our matter is nearly resolved, as he said it would be, and the resolution was favorable. I highly recommend Cory.

Always trusted him to protect my interests
Cory stayed with me through a 5 year post divorce nightmare. Never once did I doubt that he was looking out for me and my children. In the middle of that five years, Cory also represented me for a separate adoption. I have given his name to many and would call him in a heartbeat if I ever need representation again.

Genuinely one of the best in his field! I highly recommend Mr. Cory Ricci!
My wife and I had hired several attorneys before finding Mr. Cory Ricci. All previous attorneys we had done business with in regards to our custody case were horrible. They were unprepared, un responsive and very unprofessional. To say we felt robbed was an understatement. Then enters Mr. Ricci, from the moment we consulted with him we could tell he was different. He was very compassionate to our concerns, to our case. He was very professional the entire time we worked with him. Never was he unprepared for a court appearance or a meeting with us. Not once did he ignore us or make us feel like we weren’t important. He was very responsive to every communication we had with him. He explained every step in detail in a way we could understand. He made us feel like we were his only client. Even though he was very busy. The kindness and compassion be showed not only my wife and I, but also our children was second to none. He showed us the love of Christ in our entire case. I highly recommend!

Cory Ricci / Mitzi Montes - A 5 Star Team for your Family
My number one goal from my divorce was to protect my son. Cory protected my son and was willing to bring in the authorities if necessary. I didn't meet Cory's family, but looking at the pictures on his desk and around his office of his family, I know he is a 5 Star Dad and a 5 Star Attorney. He will fight for your family. Also, Cory has a 5 Star Paralegal, Mitzi Montes. She was great with my many questions, notes, paperwork, etc. Thank You, Cory! Thank You, Mitzi! I highly recommend Cory Ricci and his great team.

Divorce is never easy.
Divorce is never an easy process. For me, it was the most difficult season of my life. After 38 years of marriage, I needed a lawyer who would walk with me with support, compassion and professionalism every step of the way. I am so thankful I found Cory. He and his team were quick to answer all my questions, support me through the difficult process, and guided me to a fair and desired outcome. I would highly recommend Cory Ricci to anyone in need of a family attorney, and if I ever need an attorney again, Cory is the only one I would use.

Review 2021
Cory Ricci was a steadfast, rock solid foundation for which my family needed during a difficult time. He stepped in and advocated for our family, both in the legal arena, as well as providing support and compassion during this difficult litigation. His composure and deep seeded knowledge proved invaluable in reaching a highly favorable outcome, for which we could not be more grateful. Cory Ricci is professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. He ensures each of his clients are provided the upmost respect and dedication, and could not receive higher praise for his representation.

Great attorney! Highly recommend!
Cory was very courteous and kept me informed throughout the process. He arrived in court promptly and handled the case expediently. Prior to the court date, he went out of his way to even check on me at home since i am disabled. He got the desired outcome to the case. I would highly recommend him.
