AMAZING!
Kay is a one of a kind lawyer, she always put my needs first and always made me feel like a priority. I would and have recommended her numerous times! Keep up the good work Kay.

Knowledgeable, Experienced, Ethical
I hired Kay to represent me for my divorce and later for custody and child support changes. First, I have to say I believe people are best off when they get attorney recommendations from OTHER LAWYERS. Your neighbor or co worker might like their lawyer, but other attorneys are really the ones who know who gets the good outcomes for clients. I asked another family law lawyer (who couldn't take my case due to conflict of interest) and also a tax and a criminal law lawyer. Two brought up Kay's name and the other recommended her when I asked. I am very glad I listened. I have found her to be hard working, patient and ethical. She is very level headed and this was appreciated since I was not always! I am totally confused about other reviewers saying she was generating fees. She could have done that with me but didn't. Next, she was very knowledgeable and this was so evident. Opposing lawyer made these great speeches and threats to look like he was doing is job and should be feared but Kay remained calm and called them "theatrics" that the court would not grant. She was right every time!! She prepared me for every possible reaction so that this naturally miserable experience wasn't any worse than it had to be. She also helped me clarify what my goals were and identified the path to achieve those goals. I felt like I had some control instead of powerless and out of control. Now, as far as cost, I feel I got what I paid for. Personally, I dont feel like quality legal services that are really going to impact my life are the place I want to bargain shop! Overall, I can't think of anything I didn't like about Kay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Got things done
Long painful divorce. Due to my x husband not wanting me to have anything and his attorney from Monticello causing all kinds of drama. She handled things professionally and didn't put up with threats and intimidation from the Monticello attorney. She had good advice and gave me options to consider. I was happy with how she handled things.

A True Advocate!
I retained Kay Snyder to represent me in two separate family cases that were probably as complex as they can come. Kay and her staff were professional, unbelievably knowledgeable and advocated for me 110%. Her staff, Janet and Ashley are fantastic and super helpful as well! In short, Kay stuck by my side throughout the entire ordeal and fought tirelessly for what I thought was impossible. I'm beyond grateful for her and her team. I strongly recommend this firm without hesitation.

Respectful and Understanding
Kay Snyder was my attorney in my divorce last year. She worked hard to help me get a fair settlement. There was no drama between the two parties, and she helped keep the peace between my ex and me during the process.

Kay Snyder was wonderful! She was my divorce attorney and got me alimony, even though I didn't think I'd get anything after the divorce. Kay answered all of my questions throughout the entire process of my divorce. Oh, and her office staff in Big Lake were amazing!

Kay Snyder was wonderful. She walked me through the process of my divorce and helped me get alimony when I was unsure I would even get anything after the divorce. She was caring and patient, and I would highly recommend her as a divorce attorney! Oh, and her Big Lake, MN office staff members were amazing!

Kay was my divorce attorney. She got me keep shared custody of my kids. I was scared because in Minnesota kids usually go with their mom with the dad having very little time with them. Kay worked hard to get me 50/50 custody. I will never be able to thank her enough.

Patient and Thorough
Kay was so supportive throughout the whole process of my divorce. I had so many questions! She patiently answered every one of them, and made sure I understood each step along the way. I highly recommend Kay as a divorce attorney.

Excellent Attorney
I hired Kay to handle a custody and child support matter. Originally, I had talked to the County but they said they do not represent individuals and only deal with paternity and cases where the county is assigned the support payments due to collection laws. We got the custody order reasonably quickly (it's never quick in the court system) and the child support was part of that. She took a complex problem and made it simple and took care of it for me!

Kay does not follow through with what she promises.
She told the judge she would take care of the child support order but never did. I had to do it myself.

Hired her for my divorce in 2005
She was very nice, but too busy for me. She kept pushing me off.... In the end I received a solo custody arrangement made into a joint custody decree with a stipulation that I (rather than both he and I) remain within 30 miles of a particular city. It took 6 years for me to get the child support straightened out because of the wording in the original decree. Then, in 2012 when I attempted to move back home to FL, the clause ended up not only keeping me in MN, but I was told I had to have permission to even visit somewhere out of state, while he had free reign. If she wasn't too busy, she probably would have done a decent job. Unfortunately for me she was busy and I got the raw end of the deal. If you hire her, make sure you stay on her and do not let her try to tell you something is, "standard, common, or normal" when it does not have to be. It is your decree -- you can set it up how you want within the boundaries of the law. Also, ask her about her work-load.

Kay Snyder Attorney Review
After my divorce, my goal was to get child support from the father. I hired Kay Snyder. Kay seemed to want to fester up conflict between the father and me instead of focusing on my goal of getting child support. All I wanted was child support, not lots of other hearings about things that don't matter, etc. I finally fired her and had the county take over the case. It is not only cheaper, but it is free! They were very helpful and I now am getting child support I am entitled to through wage garnishment. I wish I new then what I know now. I would not recommend Kay Snyder unless you want to spend big bucks and get small results.
