Any person's divorce is one of the worst times of their life! I called approximately 10 divorce lawyers, many of them simply blowing me off or quoting me a ridiculous "flat rate" that I absolutely could NOT afford.
In my mind, my divorce was simple! No property to divide or minor children to deal with. We divided all our property ourselves and had no accounts to split. I simply needed someone to lead me through the paper filing process at a price I could afford. One lawyer had the nerve to say to me, "Lady, no divorce is simple. As soon as you get to court, your husband will change his mind and want it all. That is why I charge a higher rate......to prepare for the future fight you will have". SERIOUSLY?
FINALLY, I talked to Attorney Richard Missimer. He was sympathetic and treated me with respect. He never belittled me. I explained my needs and he told me "exactly" what the process would be and what time spans we were looking at. He NEVER made me feel incompetent and repeatedly told me to ask him any questions I had, no matter how silly they might seem to me. I finally found my savior! He took that heavy load off of me and proceeded to lead me down the process without any fears. When he said he would send an email, the email was there, listing what paperwork was needed on my end to start the proceeding. When he said he would call, he called. When he said we would meet, we met when signatures were needed and the whole process became cut-and-dry!
When the process was complete, there were absolutely no "hidden" charges. He charged me exactly what he quoted me!
I would recommend him to anyone looking for an honest lawyer that truly cares for their needs!

Mr. Missimer called me back right away and helped me solve issues without needing to hire an attorney! He sounded like he actually cared about me and my case, that is important to me, with a lot of lawyers out there acting like jerks. He was also extremely knowledgeable in his field and in Rock county, which also helps tremendously. I have called and talked to dozens of lawyers, Mr. Missimer is the first to make a difference in my intuition for hiring lawyers.

Whatever your needs are call this lawyer first.. You will be glad you did. He will either show you how to do it yourself for free, take the case or refer you to someone else who can help you..
I've honestly never talked to a lawyer like him before.. He seems to have a really good heart.

My wife and I entered into a divorce in November of 2010. Because we both were in agreement with the division of property, Richard Missimer recommended we go to court Pro Se, thus minimizing his fees. Richard was always there for us to answer our questions, unlike any other lawyer I have dealt with in the past. I would rate him on the top of my list for good honest legal help, and plan to use him if needed in the future.

Missimer always answers my questions! It is awesome to be able to get legal questions answered! It's a huge help and I really appreciate his willingness to provide services... Even if it involves answering questions online! Thank you so much!

Based on his many thoughtful and insightful avvo posts, one can see that attorney Missimer is professional, knowledgeable and has the ability to come up with creative solutions to complex problems. I would recommend Mr. Missimer to anyone in need of a family law attorney.

I have known Attorney Richard Missimer throughout law school and for his entire career as an attorney. I believe him to be thorough, clever and a good guy to work with. He would certainly be the person I would go to for family law or divorce matters. I recommend him to my clients, and will continue to do so because I know Richard tailors his services to their needs.
