I highly recommend !
I may be a couple years late writing this but I felt like Ray did a great job helping me out. I lived several states away and was dealing with a ex spouse who was trying to alienate me from my daughter. Ray worked things out where I got to spend a lot of time with my daughter that has led to 3-4 years of success so far. There’s was some things that he understood better than I could in my early 20’s & I realized he really set me up for gradual success with my daughter as long as I put in the effort. It’s been years later now and I’ve gradually have been getting more and more time with my daughter. I have a beautiful relationship with my daughter today and I now get my daughter even living across the county for a month after every two months with her mother. I get my daughter 33.3 percent of the time now living across the country. It’s given me a father in family court a solid fighting chance to have full custody in the future if the cards fall right & if it’s ever needed to be pushed in favor for one day. More importantly I have a strong relationship with my daughter today & I believe it’s thanks to Ray in a lot of ways. I would of been unfairly alienated without a doubt if it wasn’t for Ray. I strongly recommend Ray because I believe he has a great understanding and knew what my fight might be long term & he made it all a simple process for me even tho I lived states away. When we went to court I felt like he attempted to fight for everything I asked him to and put in effort doing so. Being a man in family court your at a unfair disadvantage naturally lets be honest. But I felt like Ray went in there and fought for me and we won in a lot of ways when he came up to bat that day. There will be pros and cons to any lawyer that you like more and less about. If I just had to find a con for review purposes I guess it would be that there could be more of a personal touch at times on some topics. But you have to remember we don’t pay lawyers to make us feel better we pay them to get results. All I can do is share how he represented me and he gave a young man in a hard spot a fighting chance. I have a GREAT relationship with my daughter today because of it. She is a daddy’s girl & will tell you herself. That’s thanks to the work Ray did for me. I highly recommend if your searching for a lawyer talk to Ray. I know he will fight for what you want and ultimately win you the the best realistic scenario out of the situation. I don’t know if Ray will ever see this one day but I appreciate him. If I ever find myself in a situation again in Colorado there’s no doubt about it he’s the guy I’m calling!!

Ray and His Staff did Excellent Work!
Ray and his staff were focused and efficient with time and money. They also proved their experience in my case, and thought of things, I never would have. I felt confident going into meetings and in dealing with the other party that I had the better attorney on my side. Very thankful that I chose Chamberland Law compared to the other options I was looking into.

Did a Great Job!
Ray did an excellent job representing me in my custody case involving my two children. He and his staff were genuinely interested in my case, they were responsive in a timely manner, and the attorney was well-prepared in court. We ended up with a good result and I will use his services again in the future should the need arise. I could not have done it on my own and I appreciate the excellent service he provides!

Realistic & Honest
He did such a great job during my divorce & custody battle with my ex-husband. Ray & Cindy are extremely responsive, helpful, accommodating and understanding of all situations. He was able to get me everything I wanted and I recommend him to everyone. In fact, I’m almost positive my ex husband even refers people to Ray for divorce and custody haha.

Ray always had my back!
Mr Chamberlain made dealing with my daughters Father so much easier! He had a zero tolerance level whenever her dad tried to make trouble! Ray was always available quickly when problems arose. I can only hope I can find an attorney as caring and aggressive as he was now that we’ve moved to Texas!

Great Attorney
Ray and his staff were very professional and so personable. They were very sincere and compassionate with our case as my husband was adopting my daughter after her father passed away. They did a fantastic job of keeping us updated and made the process as smooth and as stress free as possible. During the court hearing, Ray, made sure he represented our family accordingly and was there to celebrate our new journey with us when the judge granted the adoption! We would absolutely recommend him to anyone else looking to hire a family law attorney! Great job!

Custody
I hired Ray, and from day one he worked with me, encouraged me, and made sure everything was done on time which reduced the stress I was already feeling. As a single father you always hear how it does not always go our way. But, then the court date had come and Ray was professional, assuring, and on point. Most went what was the best interest for my daughter which is what I wanted. I would hire Ray again!

Divorce
Going through the divorce process is such a stressful time, or so I've heard. My experience was probably easier and less stressful than most and I believe it was because of Ray. He helped every step of the way and all my questions and emails were answered very quickly. My divorce was quick (even with a child involved) and smooth and I would definitely recommend Ray.

Divorce with a child
Ray was excellent. He handled my divorce in Colorado while I had moved to Tennessee with my daughter. Gave me information that allowed me to leave the state with my daughter prior to the divorce being filed. Handled all the paperwork and commuted well communicated well with me. Gives great advice the divorce cost a lot but the results were definitely well worth it.

Highly Recommend
I hired Ray for an Allocation of Parental Responsibilities case. I was impressed with how well he represented me throughout the whole process. He responded to all of my emails in a timely fashion, and when he wasn't available, his paralegals jumped right in to assist me. Ray fought hard for me, and was able to give me the outcome that I wanted. He is amazing.

Great Service
Ray represented me in a contested custody case and did a great job! His office always responded timely to my questions, they were in constant contact with me, they followed through and Ray was well prepared for all hearings. Ray was aggressive in court and obtained a better than expected result for me and my family. I would recommend him to anyone needing help with a family law case.

So glad I switched lawyers and hired Ray!
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Ray and feel extremely fortunate to have discovered his legal services when I did. I had originally filed for divorce through the nation-wide law firm "Cordell & Cordell" and was extremely dissatisfied with their exhorbitant fees and severe lack of client care. After talking on the phone, I made the decision to switch to Ray as I found him much easier to relate to. He explained relevant legal processes in a practical way without dragging me through the weeds. Additionally, he wisely engineered a comprehensive legal strategy specifically designed for my case and executed it to perfection. He listened to my positions and was willing to represent me in a much more thorough manner than Cordell and Cordell. Certain aspects of my case were already generally pre-determined due to existing case law, but Ray fought for my position against long odds anyway which really made me feel like he was on my team. Ray is an experienced lawyer in family law and previously had a stellar career reaching the pinnacle of the milary legal environment as a senior Air Force JAG officer. The judge's final decision in my divorce case ended up being more favorable than anything I could have expected and the credit goes to Ray and his team of paralegals who prepared an impressive argument which held the day in court. I enthusiastically recommend Ray's legal expertise to any military personnel or civilian requiring family law needs. As the owner of his own firm, I think he has more of a vested interest in adequately representing his clients as best he can and I found his rates to be relatively affordable. Thanks again Ray! I feel very strongly that if I had stayed with my previous lawyer, there is no way my case would have turned out as well as it did with you!

Child custody and relocation
Ray has been my lawyer since June of 2014 and not once was I disappointed in his service. He fought for my rights while I was deployed and most of all he took care of everything. Not one single issue. He was always in contact with me to keep me informed on what's going on. I was divorced in December 2014 and he continued to fight for me he also helped me with relocation in 2015 because of him and his great work of his paralegals Cindy btw helped me take my kids with me. If any more issues ever arise I plan on going straight to Ray again.

OUTSTANDING Divorce Lawyer!
Ray and his team was OUTSTANDING in every regard! He helped me get my divorce with no hitches. My case could have been complicated but he made the case simple and fast. We were in constant communication and he kept me abreast of all developments in the case. I’m so glad I picked him out among several attorneys in town whom I contacted. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends and family!

Guided us through a very difficult process
Ray represented us during our relocation case. It was a very contentious case and the other party refused to cooperate. Ray led us through the process with professionalism and integrity and in the end we won full custody and were allowed to move with the kids. He genuinely cared about the well being of the kids and took the time to learn about them and their personalities. Even though at times we felt helpless and that there was no end in sight, Ray kept us on track and we came out on top.

Step Parent Adoption
A year ago I chose Ray Chamberland to represent My husband and I in a step parent adoption. Given the circumstances with the biological father, we ran into one obstacle after another. Ray was consistent, professional, honest, and just an all around blessing through out the entire process. After a year of him helping us complete each task required for the adoption, our court date finally came. Going into any court hearing always brings fear and anxiety. Ray finished as strong as he started. My husband and I had absolutely no doubt that we had made the best decision hiring Ray for legal representation. He exceeded any expectations, and was fearless and knowledgable during the hearing. After completing the adoption, the judge complimented Ray on how strong and diligent he presented the case. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal representation.

Positive Experience From a Contentious Child Custody Case
From the beginning Ray did his best to act as mediator between myself and the other parent in a very contentious case. Ray saved me considerable time by encouraging me to create a parenting plan and attempting to negotiate with the other parent. When mediation and negotiations failed and it came to court hearings and navigating that process I felt that Ray was highly competent and I felt comfortable with his input and guidance. In addition, I felt that Ray's responses to my questions and requests for information were timely. That doesn't mean that when I sent an email he immediately responded or he picked up the phone every time I called. I understood I wasn't his only client but when I needed information to meet a deadline or when a significant date in the parenting plan had arrived I knew he was available to again, help me navigate those stressful and emotional situations. My experience with Ray's staff has also been very positive. I find them helpful and trust them to deliver messages and they have always followed up with me. The outcome of my situation was more than I could have expected. I don't think I could have hired a better attorney to represent me. Everyone needs to find an attorney that "fits" them and I have to say that Mr. Chamberland is the perfect attorney to work with and I would highly encourage you to meet with him. You will find him to be straight forward, level headed and a skilled representative in court.

Divorce and Child Custodial Arrangement.
Ray and his team did a great job for me in my divorce. They all kept me informed, was a difficult case and had multiple times in court for other reasons and won every battle against some odds. Gave me wise advise in not accepting mediation offer that was put on the table I've referred several friends to him and have a friend that had same results.

Divorce - no children
Ray and Cindy helped me with my complicated divorce. They represented me in court and took care of all the paperwork. They got everything done within 4 months, which I thought was very quick. I'm pleased with the work they have done, and I'm happy to be divorced.

Good attorney
The adoption of my foreign born child went well. It took longer than anticipated but Mr. Chamberland kept the final bill amount under the retainer fee.
