A wonderful attorney and man
I see a below review stating their displeasure with Ross, and I have to say I am shocked and apt to discredit it! Ross has been so wonderful to my family as well as myself for years. He fought and fought for my dad in his custody case for me when I was a child. He won the case and I can’t be more grateful for his hard work! I do not know where I would be had it been a different outcome! I recommend him to any and every person. If you want an attorney who will fight for you tooth and nail, Ross is the best for you!

can you please help me, by giving me options.
All my charges have been dropped, but now I'm charge for disturbing the peace by fighting. Which I wasn't in the fight I was breaking it up.. By me breaking it up they think that I was engaging in the fight. Can you please help me.. I've never been on probation, community service, nor young marines.. I've been to a detention center in Coushatta.. Which they said if I say I'm guilty to one charge they will drop the rest which I did.

Do NOT let this Attorney attempt handling your custody trial. Ever.
Talked to me about appeals from day ONE I met w/him @ my custody case. Didn't even bother to read anything I gave him concerning my case for over 7 months - then told me he read "some" of what I gave him. Actually gave me MY records to read & defend myself with in custody trial - told me he wasn't going to read them. Believe me, opposing counsel did. Didn't even object when I was being questioned as expert witness in multiple disciplines, even asked what people think. Never objected in my child custody case when opp counsel asked if my mate and I shared same bedroom (and that has what to do with ex's & my child's case how???) I could go on infinity here. Ross is great at writing, but don't let him anywhere near your case if it even somewhat, sort of, kind of, nearly, maybe seems remotely like it will go to trial and you EVER want to spend even one single solitary millisecond with your child(ren) supervised or not again. Kept stringing me along w/erudite quips @ "Better Parent Standard" - actually told ME to look up statutes, articles, cases relevant to my case. I did. I'll do anything for my child. If you are the same, you would. I gave the statutes. Ch. Code Arts, cases, documentations, journal photocopies, etc to Ross time & time & time again. I actually begged, pleaded, said "Pretty please read" what I gave him for the case. All he had to do was read. Never read anything for over 7 months. 7 months. Then said read "some." Right. Now case so FUBAR, I dont know what is going to happen. He really hurt my child. I mean he really did. He helped my ex so much. Stay away from Ross if your child(ren) mean anything to you. If you want them happy, if you want to be sane, you are better off defending yourself. Get an aggressive, mean, smart attorney with custody trial experience who actually cares about your case & will read what you give her/him - at least more than what is on the bank check (Ross never did fail to read those promptly - or ask for his money, which he surely did get). Best of luck to your family.
