    Went with Mr. Bankert for a custody situation. Paid $1000 retainer and was told he only charge us for the time we spent in trial. Court date came and not only did he has nothing prepared, he was rude to my husband and simply wanted us to agree with the other party. Did NOTHING for us and then charged us another $1200! We spend 2 hours in court, did not go to trial and he didn't even know my child's name. After the court hearing, we were contacted by his wife DEMANDING payment in full immediately for something we did not agree on. I wouldn't recommend his to ANYONE

    Family law expert personified. Mr bankert and his staff were as welcoming as they were professional. They helped my family stay together with sound legal action.

    Mr. Bankert and his staff were very professional and helpful during the most difficult time in my life. Mr. Bankert knows what he is doing and fought for me and my children. If I ever need help in the future, I will definetly have him on my side again! Thanks Attorney Bankert!

    I would like to first add that i went with Terry Bankert because his retainer was not as expensive as other lawyers in Genesee county.That was a horrible idea. It clearly was a reason for that u get what you pay for.Terry Bankert is absolutely the worst lawyer in flint.I would not recommend that he represent your pet turtle if you have one. He never knew what was going on with my case or what i had retained him for or the correct laws for that matter. His staff is very unprofessional mainly his wife. And they continued to ask for more and more money after not doing anything . I dont know if they are in financial troubles or what.I had to retain another lawyer to actually represent me.Too bad i have to give one star because this firm is definitely not worth one star. I am not a mad citizen writing a review because my case was not won. I am truly writing this review in hopes to save another person from going through what my family and i endured mentally and finacially from Mr. Bankert.

    After learning my drivers license was being suspended due to a order for alimony, I contacted Mr. Bankert. He informed me I also had a bench warrant for my arrest. At that point I didn't even know I was divorced as I had never been served. My ex was asking for over $40,000 in alimony and we had only been married for 2.5 years. Mr Bankert immediately went to work and was spot on with his work and through his hard and dedicated work, I owe her zero in alimony. Mr Bankerts staff also are great people. All of them were very kind and understanding. I was ALWAYS kept informed on the progress of my case and as a long distant truck driver, that is not an easy feat. Kudos to the Bankert Firm, I highly recommend and endorse your law firm.

    It was clearly explainerd to me how property is divided in divorce. It was clearly explained to me the process of divorce. I was fully informed as to any discussions with the attorney of my wife. Bankert is very respectful.

  • Waste of my time and dime

    Posted by a Child Custody client

    After reading some of the reviews left on Mr. Bankert I can see that others had similar issues with him. After paying almost $1,000 in order for Mr. Bankert to appear in family court for a joint legal custody motion filed by my ex, he did not fight for what I wanted at all neither. He smoothly attempted to get me to accept what the other party wanted from a judge that asked him to back away from my case after that date. Which he did. The only reason I gave him 2 stars for the categories of "knowledgeable" and "kept me informed" is due to some discreet and helpful info he gave me regarding my case. Other than that, it was a complete waste of my dime and time. It would have been better to either handle it myself or find someone better for my case had I known that my outcome would be what it was.
