There is a lack of communication and I always needed to get a reminder out to email me copies of the paperwork when they should've done it right after I left the office. Sometimes I would send an email regarding the status of the divorce and not get any response. I'm paying for services that aren't being delivered. The only time I received anything without a reminder was getting invoices when it was time to be paid. I recently consulted with a different lawyer and was surprised to find out what could have been done differently which would've made the process go by a lot quicker. Not only that, when reviewing the paperwork I had, there was a WRONG case file number on one of MY forms which pulled up some other person's case. Lawyers are not cheap and I expect for the amount of money I'm paying that at least my case file would be correct. Very unsatisfied with my experience. I should've left when I was first there for a consult when Richard decided to toss my ID back at me instead of handing it to me like a professional. That was a red flag but I thought they could get the job done.

My divorce was fortnately uncontested and amicable. Richard was very easy to work with. I really felt like he reviewed my ex-wife's decree with a fine tooth comb. He was able to explain the legal verbiage in a way that made sense. He was prompt in responding to any emails or voice messages. Overall, I was completely satisfied with the service provided and the cost associated with my divorce.

Jeff Priest and his staff are outstanding in every respect. A divorce is a life changing event - full of emotion, stress, and not knowing what the future will bring. Jeff, Farah and Richard were there for me with phone calls, emails, and explaining each step. It’s not only the legal and the financial concerns but they also helped me emotionally become healthier and stronger. We worked through the divorce with integrity - using the facts, numbers and Jeff’s expertise.
Would I recommend Jeff Priest and The Priest Law Firm to others - I already have.
Cynthia Brown, Divorce and separation Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Priest and I worked together on a family law matter. I was impressed with his knowledge of the law. He was an effective advocate for his client and I would feel confident recommending him to any person looking for legal counsel.
Ronald Lundquist, Chapter 13 bankruptcy Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I endorse this lawyer. I have known Jeff for many years. He is a well known and well respected attorney in the Minnesota family law community. I have seen Jeff's work on a first-hand basis and strongly recommend Jeff to anyone in need of his services.
