Amazing!
Brett is amazing! It has been a few years since we used him for legal services, but anytime we have any questions or problems he is still great to return calls and help with whatever is going on. Always in a timely manner. I would highly recommend him!

INCREDIBLE
I don’t even know where to begin… Brett and Jaci are truly heaven sent! From day one, Brett LISTENED, truly listened to me and when things got ugly with my ex, he fought for me without hesitation. His guidance and understanding throughout my entire case was more than I could have ever imagined or asked for. I will forever hold a special place in my heart for Brett! Now that my case is over, I can honestly say I have a sense of peace that I haven’t had in years and it’s because of Brett!!

Protector
I so appreciated Brett’s just-in-time help and casual, respectful demeanor. His compassion and sense of humor helped me keep perspective through ridiculous circumstances, yet I have no doubt he’d be a bulldog in court. This guy is a lawyer because he wants to protect people, not boost his ego, over-charge or pad the bill to fund an extravagant lifestyle. We need more of these good men. Blessings to you Brett!

Best Attorney
Brett was an excellent divorce attorney. I had many different consultations before I hired him and I wouldn't have found a better attorney in Springfield, Missouri. He listened to many of my concerns and was very understanding. He did the very best for me as his client and gave me some of the best advice while going through a very stressful situation. Divorce itself is what everyone says it is especially if you have children and Brett helped me through the entire process from start to finish. I would recommend Brett to anyone going through a life-changing situation because he definitely will go above and beyond to bring the very best outcome for his clients at the same time bring peace to mind. I couldn't thank him enough for everything he did.

Divorce
I couldn't have asked for a better team to take on my divorce case. He always returned my calls within 24 hours, if he wasn't available at the time I called. Or if it was something Jaci could answer, i'd get an answer right then. Brett is straight forward and never beat around the bush. If you are looking for an attorney that actually cares about you and your case, hire Brett! You wont find a more efficient and productive attorney in the Springfield area. And If I EVER happen to need another attorney again (pray that I don't have to!) I will definitely be hiring Brett! No questions asked!

Relocation case
Brett is very honest and very knowledgeable. He was able to keep me calm during a very stressful time. He worked very hard to get a settlement before court and just when we thought it wouldn’t happen and it would go to trial, he was able to get a settlement and me and my son moved out of state without an even more stressful court battle. I couldn’t have asked for better representation!

Better results than I expected
Brett has done an amazing job with my case. My Ex is usually very difficult and Brett was able to negotiate with the other attorney and advocate for me. He got the results I was hoping for, but honestly didn't expect. He was attentive to my needs and genuinely listened to my concerns and when I came by the office to sign documents he always made it a point to come out and greet me. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of my case and would highly recommend Brett for family court issues.

Excellent Representation
My husband and I hired Brett for a child custody case. Throughout the year-long process we were informed of each stop Brett had taken, we never had to wonder what was going on with our case. Brett has excellent communication skills. We were served with honesty, integrity and the child's best interest as the number one priority. Brett was always forthcoming with any obstacles we may face, and direct in helping us to navigate any difficult situation we found ourselves in. He was a pit-bull in the courtroom, and he deserves much more than 5 stars!

Fantastic Lawyer
I had a grandparent's rights case that was complicated and dragged on, but Brett was there for me every step of the way. He made sure I knew what to expect at every step and kept in touch so I didn't feel lost or overwhelmed. I couldn't ask for a better lawyer and I'm not just saying that because he won my case for me. Brett really cares for his clients and it shows in the time he invests in each case.

Grandparents rights/Placement
Brett is simply AMAZING! He was able to successfully help me with grandparent rights and placement of my 1st grandbaby! Even with my complicated history he was always 100% real. He will never tell you that you will get what you ask for, but he will tell you to not give up! He's ALWAYS honest and upfront, very laid back yet extremly professional. He will, without a doubt, stand up for not only what is right/fair but what you want. I have a habit of panicking over pretty much everything, I will always remember Brett saying "you don't get to panic until I tell you it's time to panic", which gave me tons of hope and reassurance. He never had to tell me! I will forever be grateful for Brett. His assistant, Mrs. Anne is amazing as well! She's ALWAYS pleasant and willing to help. 5 Stars is just not enough!

Great outcome.
Brett was very thorough in explaining everything I needed to know, communication was superb and always timely. I was never in the dark and we each stayed on the same page for the entirety of my case. It was clear to me right away that Brett genuinely cares about his clients and strives for the best possible outcome. I felt completely hopeless before hiring Brett and now I’m right where I should be. I couldn’t be more grateful and I would recommend him to anyone 100% of the time. Because of Brett I now have time with my son when all odds were against me, he made it happen.
