Thank you doesn’t seem enough for all that Bill Stogsdill and Brett Williamson have done not only for me, but my children as well. When I first met both of these gentlemen, each presented themselves with such self confidence I instantly knew these were the attorneys to represent both my children’s and my interests. Their knowledge of the law, the court system and taking the time to understand my situation and what was most important to me was outstanding.
Although my case was not a million dollar case, both Bill and Brett treated it as if it were. I was continuously encouraged to be apart of my case, not just a “victim” of circumstance. They allowed me to help them help me. Documents created by me at their request helped my case.
Bill was a Bulldog during trial. Bill did not only have superior knowledge of the law, but the knowledge of every detail of my case was impressive. It was abundantly clear, Bill was prepared for trial.
Organized and detailed are just a couple of words I would use to describe Brett. He not only showed this before trial, but during trial. Before Bill could ask for a specific exhibit, Brett was already handing it to him!
From the most mundane tasks to the most important, I was continuously informed about my case. The approach taken by both of these attorneys, was to be proactive and reactive. Both Bill and Brett took the time to explain my options, what is my children’s best interest and mine, and more importantly, understood some of the tough choices I had to make. Although we may have had our disagreements at times, we always talked through the decisions that needed to be made. More importantly, we were always a united front. I trusted my attorneys implicitly and in the end, I’m so glad I did!
The Assistants in the office were always so helpful, friendly, outgoing and completely understanding regarding the roller coasters of emotions I felt during this process. I truly appreciate their kindness and respect for the sensitivity of the process.
I hired Bill on paper, but in reality the entire law firm was essential to my case. On the one occasion when Bill could not appear at a court hearing, Bob Boyd appeared. I was nervous not to have Bill at court, but Bob quickly laid my fears to rest.
This has been the toughest time in my life. But I am thankful everyday Bill was on the same side of the table as I was and not sitting a cross from me. During the course of this divorce, it was comforting to know that both Bill and Brett were protecting, defending and fighting for what was best for my children and me.
I will forever be grateful to them! Thank you for your hard work and dedication to my case. Thank you for having the same passion as I did. Thank you for being the shield in front of both me and my children. Simply put, thank you!
