Excellent Lawyer
Curtis Rawlings and his team are excellent. He helped me through a non amicable divorce. You can trust Curtis and his team to guide you through the process. He cares, offers sound advice, communicates well. He's responsive and on top of your case. When I needed him years later to help with part of the case, he was there for me. Curtis and his team are exceptional. I highly recommend him to anyone needing legal counsel. I don't know if things would have gone so much in my favor if I didn't have Curtis as my lawyer.

Absolutely Wonderful!
Curtis Rawlings has been my attorney for over 10 years. He has helped me with everything from a custody battle to now a relocation to another state. He is the best family law attorney in the State of Nevada. He is professional, responsive, always listens to your requests and recommendations about your own case, works with you in every aspect, is friendly, and his paralegal, Shirley, is the best you can ask for as well. I would recommend him to anyone, and do to anyone that asks me for a family lawyer recommendation. He is absolutely excellent.

Excellent Service and knowledge
I was referred to Pecos Law Group and I was assigned to Curtis as my attorney. I was blindly walking into my divorce, Curtis gave me comfort, he was knowable, and there to support me through the process. Curtis and his team were always responsive and answered my questions. During a very difficult time I always knew they were on my side. I highly recommend Curtis Rawlings and his team.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
Curtis Rawlings and his paralegal, Shirley Martinez, are the best! Their knowledge, communication skills, processes, responsiveness, and support are superb. They far exceeded my expectations and as a result of their efforts, we were able to negotiate an uncontested divorce.

Curt was absolutely incredible in helping me with my custody, termination and adoption case. He and Shirley explained every single step, the processes and possible outcomes of what would and could happen. Everything was done quickly and without any issues and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you!!

Wonderful Experience
From start to finish, Curtis & Shirley were an absolute pleasure to work with. Child custody is an emotional rollercoaster in and of itself, but having this team of dedicated and courageous people on my side gave me the assurance I needed to persevere. Their knowledge and availability throughout my year long journey helped me put things in perspective and understand that although I have an opinion about what should happen, there is a system and a process. Trusting Curtis & Shirley to get me through that process was the best thing I did. I got an even better outcome in my case because of it! There will never be enough words to express my gratitude for having met them, retained them, and having gone through this experience with them.

Excellent Work
Curtis handled my very difficult divorce. The case itself should have been straightforward and brief but was made difficult and extended in duration by opposing counsel as well as court volume. Curtis was very honest with me regarding what was (and was not) possible. He did his best to make this experience better and was masterful in court.

Curtis is amazing. There just aren’t words to describe what he has done for our family as a whole but specifically our daughter. He fought for two years now in defense of her safety and well being and we are forever grateful.

Excellent - First Class Attorney
During a very difficult time in my life, Curtis Rawlings helped me through a divorce and custody battle. With his compassion, patience, and expertise, he fought hard to convince the judge that despite any mistakes in the past, I deserved to be a full time mother to my son. I will be forever grateful and would recommend him to anyone. He is truly a first class attorney.

Curtis Rawlings He is the best!!! Period!!!
He fought hard and long for me, he got me 20yrs of alimony, paid to me from my ex husband, nothing slips by him, or goes without being seen, he will call them out for you. He is fiery, fierce, and intimidating, but yet such a gentleman. I have three other friends that have hired Curtis Rawlings, and we are all in love w his brilliant mind, and his amazing skills as an attorney. And even w all of these attributed qualities, he holds the highest moral and ethical standards, that I rarely experience in this day and age.

"Based on my experience with different family litigators over many years, I could tell when an opponent was prepared to litigate based on his knowledge of the facts of his case, his knowledge of the applicable law, and his questioning during trial. Mr. Rawlings presents as a professional who takes his job seriously and performs his services with dignity and respect to others. These are qualities that make for effective representation and gives his clients an edge in court."
