Review David Gotzh

  • Upfront, honest, knows the law, and understands Judge and the other party

    If only I had a wish. I wish I had David as my attorney for my divorce and for my recent trial because I would have avoided putting myself in an extremely bad position for years to come. David came to my case in the worst possible time. He worked magic and made huge improvement on the worst case.

    My previous "expensive and experienced" lawyers dropped the ball and allowed the unfair, unclear, and very harsh terms to be embedded in my divorce settlement agreement. All of those ignorance and mistakes caused me and my family lots of pains and lot of financial burdens years after my divorce.

    What makes David different from all the lawyers I worked with over the years are: 1. He is honest and upfront with my situation. No empty promises but a dose of reality so we can work on a practical solution to solve a real problem, not to chase a fake promise; 2. He is transparent on his billing and costs. He is upfront and fair on what he will bill you and what he will not bill you. He is sensitive to my costs. Most importantly, he provides me with the costs and the odds of winning so I can make an informed decision to take the legal actions or not. That is huge for me that David has the integrity not to bankrupt his clients for his own gains; 3. David knows all the rules and the laws, unlike some lawyers who are not precise about the laws and worse who get the laws wrong; 4. Last but most important, David knows how the Judge and how the other party would likely feel and act. This is critical to create a win-win situation so there is settlement. Many lawyers want to TAKE IT ALL and in the end you get a case lasts for months and years. Clients always lose if the case drags on.

    I am so happy I took the risks to hire David based on internet reviews from his clients. All my previous lawyers are through people I know and that didn't work for me at all. So I hope I can be of help to people like me and hope my review will help your case so you can take the leap of faith to trust some one like David, capable, young, and charging reasonable price !

  • Awesome: Wish I had found him 20 years ago: Child Support Settlement

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Eric

    This man knew what what we were facing / what was coming down the pipe with the state. He had no despair or cold feet about performing the job. He knew the personalities of various judges, and various State Attorneys, how they would react, what they would tolerate, and what they would not. And was able to better prepare for that situation, in the manner which that judge wanted to see it. When hiccups with the judicial system came along (rescheduling dates, and so on) he promptly informed me of everything which was going on. If I didnt understand something that was going on with the case, he took the time to explain it twice or three times until I understood. He always had someone there to "on time" represent the case no matter what. He was always able to be reached, and always responded to my voice mails and messages. Everything he does electronically is safe and secure. He was definitely affordable and did not try to get an extra fee for every little thing that came across the table.. ( he didnt play the game of bait nibbling when you go fishing). If there were extra fees, he let me know well in advance that it may cost a little more to do this or that. Yay or Nay? If not we can try to find an alternative route. He was fair to both sides of the fence. He knew what the state would tolerate, and what they would not. When negotiating a settlement, he always took the best interest of me and my child at heart rather than just my best interest. Which, in alot of support cases, parents tend to get tangled up in the dagger throwing contest. David did not let that happen and took measures to explain why or why not he was doing things the way he was.

    Attorney David Gotzh is a highly knowledgeable, trustworthy, insightful, and supportive advocate. My case had languished in the hands of my original attorney. Attorney Gotzh took over my case and oversaw its resolution in a timely manner. He deftly explained every step of this exhausting and difficult process in laymen’s terms, ensuring that I understood every aspect of my case. He kept me apprised of every development in my case and replied to all my correspondence immediately. I would never wish this process on anyone, but if it must be done, I would definitely recommend having him in your corner. Excellent work, Attorney Gotzh! I can’t thank you enough!

    Highly recommend! He was able to take my case from my ex contesting everything, to just getting it done. He helped me end my 17 year marriage in 4 months. I told him I wanted out, and he got it done quickly, and I was able to move on. Great many thanks.

    He is not expensive, but that is the only advantage. Him, along with other two lawyers, screwed up my case so badly that it was very difficult to fix it.
    I was divorcing for the first time and I fully trusted him at the beginning until I found out that he doesn't answer my questions fully, he is very difficult to reach, he is lying. Imagine this, on pretrial he managed for my passport to be taken away as I was a flight risk. Many people and lawyers I talked to since then said that they never heard this happened in a divorce case. So, save yourself a trouble and find a good lawyer.

    David Matthew Gotzh’s response: “I know exactly which case this is. But iARDC ethics rules bar me from even discussing this case in a public forum - otherwise to do so would be to violate their attorney/client privilege. What I will say is this. 95% of the time, I represent good clients. But every so often, I get that 5% where 1) everything I say goes over their head, 2) they demand highly unrealistic outcomes, or 3) they believe I have a duty "win" by ANY means necessary (to include lying to a judge). I like money, as does any other lawyer, but not at the expense of my reputation and/or law license. Again, I can't speak to this case, nor will I. I'm glad this person finally got what they wanted, however that person managed to achieve it, and I wish that person the best.”

    David is easily the most straight forward and honest attorney I have ever dealt with. He is tough and keeps things simple. A true rarity in the legal world today. I cannot recommend him more highly.

    I hired MR Gotzh to represent me concerning my child support case. i had a consultation with him prior to my court appearance and he clearly and honestly explained to me what would be taking place in my upcoming and future court appearances. Mr Gotzh made it easy for me to understand the court jargon which is hard for many of us to understand especially if you are unfamiliar with child support laws. My first court appearance, that Mr. Gotzh handled, went very well. I am very pleased with his services thus far and highly reccomend Mr Gotzh to anyone looking for a knowlegeable family attorney.

    If you are looking for an extraordinary, extremely knowledgeable family law attorney, your search is OVER! Attorney Gotzh is intelligent, hardworking and honest. Best of all, he is affordable and flexible. He is not an attorney that is out to increase his wealth by decreasing yours. He has your best interest at heart. He will not mislead you. He is very thorough, keeps you aware of what is happening with your case and simplifies complex issues in an effort to make sure that you clearly understand what’s going on. He is detailed, attentive and keeps communication lines open. He is always available.

    This was my first experience with Family court and he made it an easy process. I am the mother of an autistic child and he was willing to go above and beyond to make sure that I maintained custody of her. I have been the custodial parent since birth. Unfortunately in Feb of 2011, her dad decided that he wanted to lower his child support, claim her on his taxes and gain joint custody. This was just an excuse to relieve his financial obligations. Initially, I went to court without representation and the judge was unable to see through my child’s other parents antics. I knew that I had to do something about this. Thank God I found Attorney Gotzh. Attorney Gotzh saw right through it and did what was necessary to result in me maintaining custody. Due to his superb representation, I won the case. I will forever be grateful for finding Attorney Gotzh.

    I was extremely afraid and clueless when I posted my question/inquiry on Avvo in March. However, I found attorney Gotzh and I knew that he was heaven sent. During a time of extreme turmoil, Attorney Gotzh came and saved the day. I definitely recommend him!
