Me vs Dayton cps
He was very honest with me , didn't sugar coat a thing which is what I need . Thank you for all of the information about CPS in Montgomery county Ohio. I did call juvinelle public defender which they wouldn't speak to me unless I had a case . Which doesn't look like I do and we are hitting 40 something days since they first showed up while I was in the hospital. I am going to try to get a hold of the advocate for CPS and file a complaint since the case worker has been only really keeping in contact with my sister . My daughter is a little over a month old and I've lost so much time already with her thanks to CPS. I've not been given a chance to even be a mother to her . This is supposed to be my time to bond with her and I haven't been able to since she is 20 min from me and I rely on people since there is no bus line where she is at the moment. I wish you were in Montgomery county and I had the money to hire you as a lawyer I definitely would . Thanks again for your time it was greatly appreciated.

“Duty, loyalty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage”…
From day one, I knew Attorney Paul Kocsis would be the right fit to represent me in my divorce case. As a prior service military member myself, there are certain characteristics I value: “Duty, loyalty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage”. Paul exemplified all these values, and went above and beyond the “call of duty”. His knowledge and ease to work with were a great relief during a very stressful time, and kept my mind at ease during the entire process (my divorce finalized 3/26/12). I would highly recommend Paul, and would certainly look to utilize his services once again if the need were to arise. Thank you, Paul for all of your hard work and dedication!

Highly Recommended
After meeting with Paul I knew he was the lawyer to represent me in my case. Everything he said he would do he followed through with until the end. He's very knowledgeable and kept me updated not only by mail but also e-mail. It's not every day that a father gets not only his house, but custody of his children. I highly recommend Paul to anybody in search of a family practice attorney.

DON'T waste your time or money!
If I could give him negative stars I honestly would. I hired Paul for a child support case. After wasting $4000 over a period of 5 months I finally realized what was going on. He had no real interest in my case. Because I live out of the state he kept stringing me along for more money and no results. In the end I pay double in child support and have NO visitation rights. Anyone out there that wants to get taken to the cleaners this is your guy.
