Divorce- Quicker than expected!
After working with Mr. Thorne for 2+ years it became clear to me that he is well respected by judges and opposing counsel. I felt like he took the time to get to know me at our first consultation and returned my phone calls fairly quickly throughout this whole process. Anyone that's going through a divorce knows that things can pop up at any minute and I was glad to be able to get responses in a timely manner. Going thru a divorce during COVID was no easy task, but things moved pretty quickly to my surprise. He was able to get the ball moving for me and get a court hearing scheduled in a decent timeframe. I appreciate his honesty, even when it came down to things that weren't obtainable.

Highly recommend
Mr. Thorne was actually the attorney that took over my case when his business partner Mr. Haslam retired. Mr. Thorne represented me at my first court appearance for child support. He was very helpful and we left with an order in place that day. Throughout the years, he has always been very informative, ethical, honest, reliable, and knowledgeable. He and his staff always kept me up-to-date on what was going on with my case. I was able to reach them when I needed to. I have used a couple other family law attorneys in my past before I knew Mr. Thorne. I would highly recommend Mr. Thorne over any of the other attorneys I used. He is definitely fair and will fight for you!

Above and beyond
Mr. Thorne and Michelle Thorne-Boyer handled our difficult case efficiently and the matter was resolved despite some formidable obstacles. At every juncture, they went above and beyond the norm to solve whatever was getting in the way. I would highly recommend Mr. Thorne.

My experience
Brian Thorne is an amazing attorney who helped me every step of the way with my restraining order and child support case. He made it very easy for me where I didn’t need stress even more about anything and he simplified the process through a very difficult time. Any questions I had he always answered and I appreciate all the work he did. The whole process was a little over a year but because COVID delayed the process a little, even than he was on it with submitting everything that needed to be done and always followed up Making sure I was up to date with everything and had all the documents I needed. I would definitely recommend and if needed would go back for any other family matter needed.

Grateful client
Getting a divorce is agonizing and laborious. I knew the decision to divorce was a major life changing one for me. First and foremost, I needed to gather my support team together. That meant family, friends, and yes, my attorney. I knew Family Law was complicated and a divorce could often take unexpected twists and turns. I also wanted a lawyer with a number of years of experience. Therefore, I researched and found the most qualified lawyer who was certified in Family Law, and could adeptly navigate the legal complexities my divorce would entail That lawyer was Brian Thorne with over 30 years of Family Law practice. It was one of the best decisions I made. From the beginning, Brian has fought vigorously on my behalf and has kept me timely informed of all the communications and proceedings of my case which has turned out to be long and complicated. However, with Brian's expertise, coupled with a good dose of empathy and professionalism, as well as that of his amazing staff, my case will be arriving to a good solid close.

VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE, CARING & ATTENTIVE
Brian Thorne handled my matter very well. I prevailed in all aspects of my dissolution and I was divorced in less than 1 year and he even was able to get my ex to pay my fees. My ex was hiding money and took community funds that were used without my knowledge. I recovered and did well with support and got everything I wanted. He even had my ex take more than half the debt. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. He is very knowledgeable and gives good advice. He relieved so much stress!
