Divorce is an emotional and draining process that nobody wins. My experience was made much easier by David Eaker’s skill, demeanor, and personality. In the beginning he took extended periods of time to explain the process, the laws, and the options that I had. At the same time, David made an exceptional effort to understand the way I thought and felt about what was happening so he could tailor his thinking to mine. In doing so, he balanced my black and white logic with thoughtful insight and a councilor-type role.
As we moved through the process, we met to discuss upcoming events or next steps, and again David thoroughly explained everything and answered more than my fair share of questions. As is the case in stressful situations, we didn’t always agree at the start of discussions but we talked and debated until we reached a consensus.
If you are reading these reviews, I can only assume that you are early in the divorce process. I highly recommend David Eaker to get you through it in the best possible way. Additional kudos go out to his paralegal, Megan Ray, who worked diligently to keep both David and I on-track.

David is excellent with regard to keeping you, as the client, focused on the goals and not getting drawn into drama. He's been down the road enough times to understand what requires attention versus issues that are peripheral.
When I first went to him for assistance, I was unsure whether I even wanted to file for divorce. His advice: when you aren't sure, speak with someone. And he referred me to a great counselor. Getting my business was not David's priority; I, the person, was David's priority because he knew that a hesitant client wasn't going to work for anyone. THAT is the level of experience for which you hire him.

I have known Mr, David Eaker for several years now as well as several other Attorneys and found that of all the attorneys I've hired, Mr Eakers takes every case more seriously than any I've used as if it's his case. I've used him to correct a case that was mishandled by other Christian attorneys and he was not only able to correct them swiftly, he even reversed a losing case in my favor with family that are now able heal from a stressful and hostile environment. My Grandchildren I love very dearly, He helped bring closure to a case where the system itself almost failed and two children that were almost lost! The courts failed us, the other Attorneys Failed us, Mr Eaker upon reviewing the case corrected every error in 48 hours! There are no words to described what he means to our family! He is a very gifted attorney that would go so far as to say he a prodigy, The Mozart of Law!

I am very impressed and happy with the way David handled my post divorce situation. Having had well known attorney's on both sides of the divorce only to find out that their work was shady at best and unenforceable in the court. I had to hire another attorney. I found and chose David Eaker. He not only knows all of the legalities of family law but he also has a knack for negotiating all of the intricate details of a divorce. David's presentation of my case in front of the court was skillfully done. He followed up by competently completing all documents necessary for a fully enforceable decree. David also has a flat fee for his services, which in my opinion is the way to go.

Mr. Eaker went above and beyond to discuss my case and my options. I called and left him a message and he called me soon there after and was courteous and explained everything to me.

David did a very nice job of handling my divorce. He quickly got up to speed and guided me through the process very well. I felt he was especially effective during mediation, where he comfortably came to an agreement with the other attorneys. If you or someone you know needs a lawyer with excellent people skills and lots of patience, I would highly recommend David.

I spend, (well actually I wasted) $6,000 for a matter of transferring the case with full merit of doing so that took all of 40 minutes ($2k), and a pre-trial hearing that we literally sat around for 1.5 hrs because he and the opposing attorney couldn't be found when the attorney was looking for them. My ex snuck my son in after pulling him out of school, judge conferred with my son and we were done. Pre-trial was $4k for absolutely NOTHING to be done! Then he said he needed another $2k for 1/2 day mediation and $7k for trial.
He informed me of the same week of mediation and apologized for not "keeping me better informed".
I'm having to give my ex custody because I'm now out of resources to fight it until January.
He was quick to respond to emails and return calls- so that is a plus.
He touts his billing structure to be convenient to his clients, when in reality its conveinent to his wallet and withdraw if you don't cough up the next block of cash.

Very low integrity. Seemingly familiar with the law, but not to the clients advantage; rather his own. Once my retainer was collected bills were not delivered within a reasonable time frame from services reportedly rendered. When charges were challenged it was conveniently outside the normal duration to challenge charges. I approached Mr. Eaker about terminating paternal rights. Without request from me he immediately filed for me to modify child support. I requested the motion to modify be pulled from the court docket, as it was outside the original scope for acquiring Mr. Eaker's services. Once he took my retainer Mr. Eaker stated that my subsequent attempts to replenish retainer funds with a credit card were declined yet he never provided proof.

Mr Eaker was an excellent appeals attorney. He went out of his way to make sure I was satisfied and completely informed of everything going on. He helped me to better understand the processes and laws as they pertained to my particular case. He kept me well informed of situations before and as they arose, while providing outstanding representation. Mr Eaker's extensive knowledge of the law and willingness to go out of his way for his clients is a characteristic I personally found hard to find in attorneys. I would definitely recommend David as your appeals attorney. In fact, the only issue I have is that I cant retain him for my return to trial.

I wanted a fair and quick divorce, for the sake of my children, and that is exactly what happened. David and Megan always responded to my correspondence in a fast and effective manner. He never encouraged me to drag out the process and lead me through each step with compassion. I would recommend them to anyone.
