Pitler Family Law Review
Great experience overall having Randy Pitler as my attorney. Randy understands how challenging it is to navigate through the divorce process and the associated items that come up with co-parenting post-divorce. Randy is professional, efficient, and personable. Truly a professional and an expert in his field!

Excellent attorney
After interviewing several attorneys, Randy Pitler stood out for many reasons. First of all, he was kind. I felt he understood the challenges of going through a divorce. And he truly wanted to help make the process as painless as possible yet ensure I was fully supported throughout. He is an expert in collaborative divorce. Many of the attorneys I met claimed to work collaboratively but did not truly practice collaborative divorce. Randy was always responsive to emails and calls and made sure to keep the team on track. Because of his expertise, we were able to avoid court and both be happy with the divorce settlement. Randy is exceptional and I highly recommend him.

Outstanding!
Randy is the consummate professional. As a lawyer myself, I know what to look for and what matters. I also know how crucial it is to hire a lawyer of my own for such a personal and sensitive matter like divorce. Randy walks the talk for facilitating a true “amicable divorce” process. He was superb every step of the way. Highly recommend!

Very Satisfied
Randy and Caitlin worked very hard on my divorce case. They helped me get the results that I was hoping for. They were very helpful, informative and courteous. I appreciate their service and would recommend Pitler Law to family and friends. I was always informed about my case and the communication was clear as well. All in all I was very satisfied with everything.

My positive experience with Randy Pitler & the Collaborative Divorce process
I consulted with several lawyers before I was referred to Randy. The other lawyers made me feel physically sick about the already terrible divorce process. Randy spoke to me in a way that let me know that I could “run the show” the way I felt best and that he would have my back...and that is EXACTLY how the process went. Randy also introduced me to the idea of the Collaborative Divorce process. Randy and the team (collaborative involves both parties having an attorney certified in the collaborative divorce process, along with a mental health professional, and a neutral financial consultant) helped us navigate the divorce process in the most positive way possible. The collaborative process takes away the the ugliness of what most believe the divorce process to hold. “Filing” is done at the end of a series of well-managed meetings of both parties and the team where you come to an agreement that keeps your focus on what is important (kids, other family members, whatever it is that you agree on). I highly recommend Randy, especially because of his competence and exceptional knowledge of the collaborative process and his ability to keep us true to the positive process that it is.

Patient, kind, caring
I hired Randy after my husband researched amicable divorces, and we met with him. He was patient, and understanding of our situation offering ideas to help us come to an agreement. When my situation turned tumultuous, Randy did not ask for any more money, and spent so much time talking to me, giving his legal o pinion, and helping guide me in a way that I was not going to be taken advantage or or bullied by my soon to be ex husband. He actually offered other attorneys for me to get second and third opinions from openly as he knew how nervous I was about the process. I would highly recommend this ethical, honest, kind man to anyone looking for an amicable divorce.

Case vs Case
Mr. Pitler clearly explained to me the procedure and the steps we would follow in the divorce process, then he went ahead and completed the work in a very professional and timely manner. I am very happy with Mr. Pitler and his staff and would highly recommend Pitler Family Law and Mediation.

Excellent - I highly recommend...
Excellent – I highly recommend… I want to start by saying that I give Randall Pitler and Pitler Family Law my highest possible recommendation. The decision to file for divorce can be a stressful, somber and life-changing event and probably one of the toughest chapters in one’s life - it certainly was for me. I am very thankful that I found Mr. Pitler to help guide our family through this process. The One Lawyer divorce process put our family in control of our goals and Mr. Pitler was a very good ally from start to finish – knowledgeable, supportive and readily available to assist along the way. Always making us aware of different options, patient and respectful. I could not have asked for more. Do yourself, your future and your family a favor by choosing the right lawyer – and I highly recommend the services of Randall Pitler and Pitler Family Law.

A caring and professional family law attorney.
Mr. Pitler is a very professional, kind and empathetic lawyer that made me feel confident by representing me in my divorce and legal affairs. Divorce in of it self is difficult for the whole family and it was refreshing that I had someone who was able to guide me in the process.

Amicable divorces ONLY!
Last year, because I threatened to divorce him, my spouse took my daughter away from me and filed for ex-parte divorce while I was involuntarily committed in a psych ward. I thought that If I approached the divorce amicably, he could learn to trust me again. So I hired Randy. Randy made the legal aspect of the divorce easier, but after I asked him to file for unsupervised parenting time, he released me as a client. I don't believe he ever truly respected me.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Randall Pitler is an exceptional family law attorney and mediator and has my highest endorsement. I have worked with Mr. Pitler both as an opposing attorney, as well as Mr. Pitler serving as mediator in cases. As an opposing attorney, he is always well prepared, knowledgeable, and has high ethical standards. As a mediator, he is equally prepared and very effective. He is also very skilled and experienced in Collaborative Divorce and he is, in my opinion, among the top attorneys in the state practicing Collaborative Divorce."
