I am honored to share my overwhelmingly positive experience being represented in court by Tom Nares. After successfully representing me during my divorce, I knew exactly who I would want to represent me a second time when I fought for full custody of my son. During what was possibly the most stressful and uncomfortable time of my life, Tom Nares was professional, caring, understanding and above all, incredibly knowledgeable about my case. He was honest with me each time I had difficult questions about my custody case, and understanding about my concerns along the way. His staff was always helpful, easy to reach and approachable.
The first time Mr. Nares represented me, I was going through a divorce. I was faced with the daunting task of paying more than half of my salary to my soon to be ex-wife in spousal and child support even though she had a college degree and worked sporadically at various full time jobs during the course of our marriage. Mr. Nares suggested doing a deposition that proved my wife was more than capable of working, which lessened my payments to her considerably. Mr. Nares was also successful in helping me gain 50% custody of my only son, which was the most important issue of the court proceedings, as far as I was concerned. Without Tom’s help, the amount of time I spent raising my son could have been lessened. I have him to thank for this.
After several years, and many discussions with my son, it became clear that he wanted to live with me full time, as events in his mother’s home had changed drastically with the arrival of a boyfriend that took up most of her time and left my son feeling unwanted. Now faced with the task of trying to gain more than 50% custody from my ex-wife, I knew exactly who would give me the best legal advice about this case….Tom Nares. My new fiancé and I talked with Tom about our honest chances of gaining full custody of my son, even though we were not yet married. Mr. Nares was honest with us at every turn, and was excellent in asking for the proper documentation to support our case. He coached us very well at every step of the process, and handled the case expertly in court, ultimately winning our case and changing our lives for the better in every way!
We can honestly say that we owe Tom a debt of gratitude for helping us navigate the difficult legal proceedings with grace, dignity, knowledge and understanding! Should we ever need to go to court again for any reason, we would happily choose Mr. Nares to be our attorney.
