Absolutely zero regrets in picking Dylan for representation.
From the first time I consulted with Mr. Driskell all the way through trial. I was 100% confident with Dylan. Any time i did have a concern he was very quick to respond via email or a phone call. When we did communicate he was very attentive to details i didn't even know were important and advised me of ways to help my case throughout the waiting period. As anyone going through a custody battle knows, its EXPENSIVE. Mr. Driskell even advised me of ways I could help keep my cost down in assisting him with exhibits for trial prep. He was sincere and honest (even when it wasn't a positive issue for our case) during every conversation we had. Kept a realistic vision of our case, without filling me with any false hope. I would have no problem recommending him to anyone including family. -Reguardless of my cases outcome, i have ZERO regrets letting him fight for my son and I.-

To assist in guardianship and custody of minor child
Mr. Driskell was a godsend to myself, my family and a 3 year old precious little girl. Dylan was very professional and listened to our concerns, and the process was explained very thoroughly. The outcome was very positive for this precious angel and we cannot, in words, say anything more about Dylan's assistance and of his assistant Sheila. Thank you all for such a wonderful experience during an awful couple of months. Dylan has a wonderful personality, very honest and had great patience with all my questions and concerns. My entire family would use Mr. Driskell again if the opportunity arose. You will not be sorry!!!!

Best Attorney
When I first tried to find an attorney to represent me. I searched for all attorneys in Springfield and I saw many good reviews on Dylan and the reviews have one thing in common, they all said that Dylan cares and listen to them. Now I can confirm that statement is true! Dylan listened and understood my needs and he gave me great advices. I can tell that he didn’t do it to just take my money like many attorneys would do. He would advise me to not do anything that didn’t make senses. And he would stay facts on everything that we did and we said. Unlike my ex attorney would advise my ex to fight me over $100 when the fact is, my ex would have to pay his attorney more than $100 to send me an email. Dylan always advise me to handle things appropriately and not do any inappropriate things unlike my ex attorney. Dylan doesn’t use emotion in any statements or any actions that we did when he was working on my case. He is always professional and he only state facts. He doesn’t do attacking tactics or being rude to anyone. But yet I can feel that he was protecting me during the whole process as well. He would advise me when to not respond and when to fight back. Like when my ex refused to pay child support during the first 6 months of the separation. Dylan was patient and always trying to settle with them but yet when he saw that I was desperately in need of child support, he took them to court. Dylan is always polite and very professional toward everyone including another side unlike my ex attorney who always does the attacking tactics and disgusting tactics. Dylan always responded to them with professionalism and respect but yet very effective. I remembered when I first met him at the court house. The court personnel looked at my file and said oh! You got Dylan as your attorney. He is amazing! And the lady was smiling and said he is here already. You will like him. He is great. And then I saw my ex came in and talked to the same lady. She looked at his file and said take a seat. I knew right then that I got a good attorney to represent me. And his office assistant, Kirsten is amazing. I can see huge difference between my side VS. My ex side. Their paper would look like a middle school assignment reports VS. the documents from Dylan’s office would be extremely professional and formal. I wouldn’t be able to get through this painful process without Dylan helps. And I know now that I didn’t get a good attorney but I got a great attorney to represent me. Thank you Dylan!

Excellent Lawyer
This gentleman took care of my divorce. He did a great job. It was quick and I didn't have any worries. He was very nice and considerate of my needs. I would refer him anytime to anyone who needed a good divorce lawyer.

Highly Recommend
Going through my first court case, I did some research and met with a few lawyers before making a decision. After thinking about it, I chose to have Dylan represent me and he didn’t let me down. His paralegal, Kristen, is so amazing too! They both know exactly what they are doing and talking about. They never steered me wrong or judged me for any opinions I had. They were honest about the good and the bad both! He gave a fair price and everything was charged fairly as well. I’m so grateful to them and will definitely recommend them to anyone and everyone! I also will not be hesitant to ever use them in the future if need be! They made me feel so comfortable with everything and leaving it in their hands! I sure didn’t know what to expect but they made it such a wonderful experience and I learned a lot too.

Knowledgeable
He did a fantastic job guiding me through a very stressful situation with my dissolution of marriage case. The local courts' website had an abundance of information and he helped me make heads and tails of it all. My case was fairly simple with no children and it was uncontested - but the paperwork alone was daunting for me to deal with while working full time. The stress of worrying if I failed to fill out a form correctly and being forced to prolong my marriage was enough to convince me to seek an attorney. I'm grateful that I hired Dylan.

My ex hired a lawyer and said we could use the same one since this would be an uncontested case… the best decision I made was calling around! I chose Dylan to represent me and I couldn’t be happier about my decision. He and Sheila were so helpful and caring. They were very good at communicating and they’d even listened to me cry a time or two. I feel that they truly cared and I wasn’t just another client. I hope I never have to go through the process again but if I did I’d choose Dylan and Sheila every time.

Incredibly happy with experience
I had to contact Dylan during a stressful time. He and his staff made every step as easy as they could. I felt I understood what was happening and that they were working for me, not just the paycheck. My case was not just another, but important. I could not be happier with the service I received.

Thank you, Dylan.
I met with Dylan Driskell during a time of family turmoil and uncertainty in regard to grandparent rights. At the time, we had been denied contact with our grandson for several weeks, and felt a great sense of loss and despair. Dylan listened intently to my concerns, and assured me that our rights as natural grandparents were protected under the law. Although the entire process lasted years, rather than months, Dylan was steadfast in his representation, and worked for our best interest until the final day of court.

HIGHLY suggest using Dylan for all your Family Law needs
I could not speak highly enough of my experience with Dylan and Sheila. I worked with them right at a year before my trial took place. Every concern I had with my case was heard. Dylan was able to take years of history involving the case and put it together in a a respectful and tactful way during trial. Sheila was always readily available and made sure Dylan was up to date with everything that came up. She was always kind to speak with. Dylan was able to bring things to my attention that would help me in my case that I didn’t even think about. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, passionate, and dedicated. Dylan’s attention and regard to every detail succeeded my expectations. I highly recommend Dylan for any of your family law needs and as a bonus you get to work with Sheila too.

Responsive, Knowledgeable and Fast
Dylan was super great to work with! Very appreciative of him and his teams help! From the start it was obvious my case should not have existed, but even so- Dylan made me feel like it was a priority and got it done quick and painless! Very responsive, knowledgeable and caring. I hope I never go through this again, but I know exactly who I will call if I do!

Without hesitation, I give Dylan my highest recommendation. Although my case was a complex one, he explained the entire process very clearly. He was very easy to communicate with. His responses were quick at all times, and never left any questions unanswered. He made me feel comfortable and confident when the case went to trial. I am so thankful I chose Dylan, his work exceeded my expectations.

Won almost everything we requested!
I took my Daughers mom to court to get more custody time after defaulting the first go around because of a missed court date. I ended up with nearly 50/50 and reasonable child support. There isn’t another attorney in Springfield I would recommend before Dylan Driskell and if you are a good parent who is seeking more time with your child, you need to give him a call.

Efficient, Cost-Conscious, High Level of Care
We hired Dylan and his team to help us with a parenting plan adjustment for our son. We were beyond pleased with the level of communication, efficiency, and care that went into making the situation as stress-free and hassle-free as possible. They were very financially reasonable and were very cost-conscious with us. I would HIGHLY recommend Dylan!

Dylan and his team did an amazing job working my case. It didn’t take long for us to get started and for the entire thing to be done with, even having to go to trial! He made sure we had all our ducks in a row beforehand which allowed me to feel comfortable going into our trial day. I highly recommend seeking their counsel for your needs!
