Great Attorney!
Andy did an amazing job for me on my house closing and then I hired him to help my nephew with his divorce and he was able to get him through a very difficult time in his life. he was able to get him custody of his son. Andy is a good Christian man and was not ashamed to admit his faith. Great experience with him. Fair price, we would definitely use him again.

Divorce Successful
Andy was very diligent throughout the 18 month process to which I feel we were very successful in getting what I wanted accomplished. Although I still have to pay my spouse through the nose, it was certainly not as much as I had anticipated, and was slightly better than I expected from the law perspective. There were many times that things were moving slow and I was worried with what Andy was doing on my behalf especially with some of the things that he was telling me. However, now I realize that is the process and he was just being certain that I knew the worst case scenario possibilities and what a judge could do. Andy is very good at his job and very understanding and compassionate with his clients' position in a very emotional situation.

Exceptional Attorney
Andrew was truly a God send to me during my divorce. He made what could have been the most challenging time in my life practically effortless. Not many people can say that about their divorce but he was there every step of the way. He was an encouragement and his advice was straight forward. I knew he was genuinely looking out for mine and my children's best interests. Andrew Boyer is an honest man with integrity that you don't find in most people, let alone lawyers. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking counsel during their divorce.

Had my best intrest
Andy was the calm during the storm! When I retained Andy for my divorce case, I asked him that all I wanted was for my rights to be protected, to make sure that I was getting a fair deal, and to help me keep the emotion out of the process and to make sure that I treated the case as a business deal. Andy always listened when I had something to say and took everything into consideration before presenting me with options to choose from prior to proceeding. As everyone knows, a divorce is difficult at best and Andy did an outstanding job throughout. At the conclusion of the case, I walked away feeling that Andy and I had handled everything with dignity and class and that everything was handled fairly and within the law. I would highly recommend Andy to anyone needing representation in Family Law.

best representative for court ever
I hired Andy Boyer for some post divorce matters that included some child custody issues. Andy represented me with integrity honestly and precise legal advice. Andy has represented me better than a layer who's well known for his father's right advocacy. Andy is a straight shooter who has given me the best legal advice and representation in court and in his office. Andy is a man of his word and I would recommend him to anyone dealing with issues where you need legal advice. Any kind of Court matters are very difficult and andy was there to handle all of difficult Parts in advising me and the best way to go about things and what could and couldnt be done

Professional, Personable, and easy to work with!
I sought Andrews guidance with the initial goal of gaining custody of my 3 year old child. When we first met I could tell right away he not only was knowledgeable but he had a funny personality which made me feel more comfortable talking to him about what for most people a personal subject. Regardless of your reason for needing a lawyer its nice to have someone who you can easily explain things to. The first time I sat down with Andrew was for a free consultation. He was very straight forward. Based on what I was seeking he told me what to expect and a few different way that it can go. His pricing was laid out very plainly, nothing confusing to follow, and it was pretty fair i'd say. He was not one to nickle and dime you for every cent you own which is always a plus. Once I decided to hire Andrew to represent me I knew I made a good choice. He kept meeting as brief as possible for the sake of time and money but was able to accomplish the task as hand without feeling rushed. I was always in the loop about what was going on with my case. He emailed frequently and asked if I wanted this or that. Long story short I couldn't have navigated the court system without him. I ended up getting the outcome in court that I wanted which is obviously a big plus but even if I wouldn't have gotten what I wanted in court it would not have been his fault. As everyone seeking a lawyer should know, there are no guaranteed "wins" in the court system and any lawyer, including Andrew, cant promise a win. BUT with Andrew you can be assured that he is listening to you and want you want, he is giving you the best options for you, and he can do it without you feeling like you have to give him an arm and a leg.

Andrew Boyer, great lawyer.
Andrew Boyer, is a great lawyer. He helped me along the way when I had questions or if I thought something was wrong. With Mr. Boyer helped me make the best decisions I could in the best interest for my son. For that I thank him so much.

Great to work with
Mr. Boyer was great to work with. Although my divorce case was probably very simple compared to most, he made sure nothing was forgotten and every detail was taken care of. I was always kept informed of everything and if I had a question he was quick to respond with a very informative and understanding answer. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has to go through that situation.

Andy is a true professional. He listens more and talks less. Most importantly, he only communicates when necessary. As a client that's good since it reduces stress and keeps the $$$ at a very reasonable level. I would strongly recommend his services.

Trustworthy Professional
Was friendly and did quality, accurate, and timely work. He did a great job of explaining my options along with his opinions so I could make informed decisions. Andy made a stressful situation as comfortable as possible.
Posted by Eric | September 25, 2014
I felt very well taken care of and protected. It seemed as though he had anticipated my questions and concerns and provided very sound advice that allowed me to make informed decisions. He kept me very informed, as to what was going on with my case as often as needed. Divorce is not going to be pretty, but I feel Mr.Boyer protected me very well and ensured I had joint custody of my children, and protected my assets.

Andrew Boyer is an asset to the legal community.
I had some let's say issues, with very a very dishonest person that I was dealing with involving an estate distribution of which I was a benefactor. I chose Andy to represent my best interests in making sure this vile person was being fair and honest. Andy very patiently listened to all of my complaints and answered all of my legal questions and at times even helped to calm me down a notch or two. In the end, Andy did fulfill his agreement with me, helping me to finally get what was rightfully mine and I believe kept this person on her toes just knowing that I had an attorney of my own watching from a legal standpoint. Andy did a great job for me, ALWAYS keeping me in the loop, letting me know what was going on. I never had to chase him down, he was always available to speak with me either in person or on the telephone or via email. I went to his office looking for an attorney and when all was said and done, I left there gaining a new friend. I highly recommend his legal services.

hard working, responsive and reasonable
Andrew is the most trustworthy lawyer I have had throughout my entire divorce. He is very responsive, and tells it like it is. No sugar coating, pure honesty. He has helped me in my case and also outside of the courtroom on how to handle things and deal with certain situations. And on top of all that, he is one of the most inexpensive lawyers I have heard of. Thanks for everything Andy.

We had a difficult case to deal with, and wasnt sure how to go about it, Andrew made us alot more comfortable to go forward, and kept us informed. He let us know our best options, always showed up when we needed him to. He understood the stress levels we were feeling, and understood what family means to us, which made us trust him even more. I would defineitely would recommend him to anyone that is in need to a wise, and kind lawyer to help with your child custody problems. This was a 3 year battle that he was able to finish in less then 3 months.
