I was introduced to Roland through a mutual friend, in 2000, while going through a difficult divorce. He began by dispatching with the ineffective lawyer who'd been mishandling my case. He then applied his knowledge of the law to get me a just and equitable settlement of marital property, and handling of child care and medical expenses, and visitation. He assisted me in thinking my way through difficult decisions that promoted the best outcomes for my very young children.
In 2003, when my son was diagnosed with developmental disabilities, he helped me navigate the Due Process procedures with my local school district, who had refused to provide my boy with the appropriate support he needed in the public school system.
When I remarried in 2006, Roland wrote my prenuptial agreement, to protect my assets.
Shortly after my 2nd marriage, my new husbands ex-wife began threatening us and my children. Roland supported us with an emergency order of protection.
In 2010, when the public school district completely failed my son, Roland, again, applied his expertise in assisting our family with the conflict resolution proceedings. The following year, he worked closely with our education advocate, and helped us obtain a private placement in a therapeutic day school, where my son is excelling in ways we never imagined possible.
When my ex-husband took me back to court, in 2013 to get his child support reduced, Roland negotiated an agreement that protected my daughter's interests regarding college tuition, books, and living and transportation expenses.
Always, Roland's first priority is what is in the best interest of his client. For my family, every endeavor for which we have sought legal advice and action, those interests have been served by his keen legal mind, his ethical application of skill, and his compassionate heart.
I would - without reservation - recommend Roland Ernst.
