Insured my child would have more doors open.
I am a father of 2 children Son(17) and Daughter(5). I was in a situation that I did not have a high expectation of persuading the court to rule in favor of my position. Single Father and all in MN.
I presented my position to Richard in the comfort of their office, after interviewing multiple firms here in the twin cities, some of which even charged for me to find out that I did not feel comfortable with them representing my family.
I had a clear line of communication with my lawyer any time I had a concern. I had a response back within the same day, if not 24hours.
After collecting all necessary information, Richard and I set expectations and laid out a strategy we both, mostly Richard agreed upon. I felt like I was doing the right thing. I wasn’t even going to fight this fight. I felt comfortable with the expectation and we engaged the process at the correct time.
It was very apparent that Richard has done this many times. He was very natural, confident, and comfortable in the court room. By this time however, so much work had been done that I was even feeling relieved to be in the court room. The documentation that was presented was done so well that the court made its decision in less than 30 days. I also should mention that it was drafted in such a way that even an appeal process would be very unlikely to cause concern.
In the end the court did rule in favor of my position and even enforced some peripheral items that I had no intention or expectation of ever getting made right.
If you want a firm with exceptional results (single father getting ruled in favor for 5 yr old daughter for example) this is a firm you should spend some time with, and share your story with any one of the staff. I started with a phone interview with Jeff Priest and was very impressed. I even called a second time for a bit more insight then came in and really got to know the team. It may cost a few dollars yes, but this is a life decision and they are big picture folks. And on that note, I would also add that no price can be put on giving a child the best opportunity possible, yet the cost of doing so with Priest Law Firm was much less than I ever expected.
Thank you! Thank you! Not much more can be done but invite this team to a family dinner in 25 years when my daughter is doing whatever she achieves!
