Review Brian Sommers
  • Professional and Cares!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Kevin

    I went through a recent divorce and when the divorce was filed in April my original intention was to not hire a lawyer. I gave my x wife the opportunity to work with her lawyer and be fair. This did not happen and after multiple attempts and questions regarding calculations that I knew were not done correctly, I had to take action. Brian came highly recommended to me so I decided to hire him.

    Going through this process I realized immediately Brian cared about his clients. He walked me through each piece of the child support calculations and the separation agreements. When we requested changes he had me in the office during dictation so we were both on the same page. He took an uncomfortable situation and made me feel comfortable with the decision by using a fact based approach that provided justification for each calculation and line item in the separation agreement. No one is going to like every component of a divorce or feel they received a great deal, but given the divorce rules in Ohio, Brian made it as fair as possible. Chis Simmons, his paralegal, is phenomenal as well, she is prompt and was always responsive with any needs during the process.

    I highly recommend Brian if you are looking for a lawyer to work hard for what is fair and do things the right way.

  • Wise Counsel in Difficult Times

    After a year of being unemployed, and with no job openings in Dayton, I took a job in Houston TX. I believed that my wife would stay in Dayton long enough to sell the house and then she would move to Houston with me.

    What I got instead was divorce documents in the mail during the July 4th holiday weekend. We had been married for nearly 38 years.

    Because my family is more important than my job, I left Houston and returned to Ohio. While I had to take a pay cut to return, being with my children was more important.

    If it had not been for Brian Sommers, who guided me through the difficult and complex legal process of divorce, I would have been lost. His wise and discerning advice and counsel during those difficult months has help position me to move forward with my life.

    Through it all, the only debt that I will not be able to pay is my debt of gratitude to Brian, for a job well done. Thank you Brian !!!

    Brian is extremely professional with a personal touch that is hard to find in this day. My divorce was brutal, but Brian never waivered. I would recommend Brian Sommers to anyone needing a first class divorce attorney.

  • Relief!

    As a single father I felt that there was no hope for me in the court system. Lets face it the odds are highly stacked against most fathers seeking custody. Brian gave no promises as well as no sugar coating. He listened to my case, reviewed my evidence and gave me his plan. Through the long journey he kept me informed and upbeat. Needless to say I have custody of my son and the truth shines through. I cant stress enough how happy I am with Brians approach to his craft. I highly recommend Brian to any hard working fathers who need a voice.

  • Standard of Excellence~

    Brian is passionate about what he does, and it shines through in everything he does to advocate for his clients whether inside or outside the courtroom. Brian is a well respected attorney in the community, and he never misses a beat. My case has been an uphill battle (as well as an extremely difficult case to fight) but Brian has never let me down, and there is no other attorney better equipped for my case. Brian has been such a strong advocate for my family, and I would never dream of using another attorney. NEVER cut corners when it comes to family matters, as I did when I hired my first attorney before Brian. Hiring Brian will be the best money you will ever spend. He will likely talk about my case for the rest of his career in law, and I will forever be grateful for all the support and hard work he and his wonderful/talented staff have done (and are doing) to get my children back where they belong. Miracles do happen when you have Brian on your side! That said, Brian truly represents the standard of excellence when it comes to finding the right attorney to represent you and your children's needs.

    After reviewing 5 attorneys in the Dayton area, I found Brian Sommers. I gladly recommend him to anyone looking for a great attorney. With his staff, I felt that my best interest was always thought of.

    I will suggest when looking for an attorney, to meet with several before making your decision. But make sure that you interview Brian Sommers, you will not be disappointed.

    Brian represented me zealously in my very difficult Divorce/custody case. He was thorough in his work and always made sure that I knew exactly what to expect. Brian made sure that I was making informed decisions about my situation. He was also prompt to court hearings. I would highly recommend him!

    Mr. Sommers and his team have been supportive and encouraging throughout the most difficult period in mine and my children's lives. They worked hard to ensure that we recieved a fair settlement. Mr. Sommers was always willing to fight for our best interest even when it felt too difficult and I was ready to give up. Our little family is greatful!

    Brian is an awesome attorney and I have complete confidence in him representing my family. I sought legal councel through Brian last year to handle my child custody case. I had 2 other attorneys before him who i was very insecure with. I immediately felt relaxed and confident with Brian and his team. It was so nice leaving his office with complete confidence everything would be handled on time and professionally. Being my children are involved the relief of having Brian and staff so caring, responsive and on top of things was a blessing. Brian always answers questions in a timely manner and is knowledgable of the law. He takes the time to go through everything thoroughly and know your case. I only wish we would have found him earlier. I will continue to seek any legal counceling thru Brian Sommers. Thanks Brian and team !!!
