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.

After 10+ yrs, thousands of $$ attorneys, pro se arguments and frustration, I called Jeffs office for a child custody issue. Bottom line: his argument and case representation finally got me full custody of my kids. Especially when presented in front of MN's probably most liberal judge. No nonsense, easy to work with, lots of suggestions. If you have a need for an attorney, you NEED to call Priest Law Firm.

Jeff Priest and his team has a unique talent for what they do. I was very pleased to have found this law firm. This was my second divorce. My first lawyer was cheap, but it was a disaster. You get what you pay for, I guess. The paralegal was always polite and always returned my calls, even though i called 4 times a day, lol. I would recommend Priest Law Firm to anyone. Not many law firms have talent like this. Thank you for the exceptional work!

I met Jeff the first time I went into their new office. I brought my son with me, and they were completely understanding and listened while I told my story. I worked primarily with Richard over the next few months hashing out my divorce and child custody situation. Farah, Richard and Jeff, worked with me every step of the way to get me the results I wanted. They always returned my (constant) phone calls or emails and I was beyond thankful for their patience and time spent on me as a client. I would highly recommend them to friends and family if their ever in need of an outstanding attorney. If needed in the future, I wouldn't think of going anywhere else.

No one ever thinks about going shopping for a lawyer or a legal team and if you ever do, chances are you are under distress and don't have any idea where to turn.
Let me help you. Turn to Jeff and his team. They are experts at listening and communicating. This is vital when you find you are going into mediation or court. Things are not as neat and clean as you would think it should be. They listen to your story. Ask you what outcome you are looking to achieve and then give you a reality check on if it is possible or not.
It was a very refreshing experience to work with people who level with you every step of the way and keep you posted on the process and procedure. One other thing that was extremely important, they are your advocate and are looking out for your interests. At times emotions can cloud judgements and that can make resolving issues more difficult. Jeff has a way of cutting through the clutter and sending a very clear message on your behalf.
When going into any kind of mediation of court situation, it is Jeff and his team that I want with me!
Thank You Team Priest for all your help!

I think the knowledge base of the attorneys at Priest Law Firm is excellent. I was not pleased with how the discussion of divorce terms was handled. My former spouse and I cane to a mutual conclusion and agreed upon what the settlement terms/outcomes were going to be and the atty challenged them (said he was representing me). This put my former spouse on the defensive and caused a lot of unnecessary angst and mistrust which complicated the process more than it needed to. Farah is worth her salt. Her knowledge is exceptional and she always returned my calls or e-mails within a day of receiving them.

I've went through three separate attorneys going through child custody/parenting issues of my daughter. I'm a single father and did not concede to only accepting every other weekend. After continuously achieving less than my expectations from my attorney from my previous three attorneys, I met Jeff. He's saved me money, advised me beyond more than I could have ever expected and put me in a position to win 50/50 physical and joint custody of my daughter. Best attorney out there.

I switch from my first lawyer to Jeff Priest and immediately regretted not doing that sooner. Throughout the divorce process it was obvious to me that Jeff and his team had my best interests in mind and worked hard on my behalf. Jeff was instrumental in forcing the other side to settle prior to trial and he helped negotiate a deal for me that was more than fair and in fact was more favorable to me than the original offer I had proposed to the other side several months earlier. Jeff was patient with me, explaining all of my options at every step, which was important since I had never been divorced before. If any of my friends ever need a divorce lawyer I will strongly recommend Jeff.
