i hired Anton to help me with a custody case. I would show up to court and find him sitting between my Ex and her free lawyer. Turns out the free lawyer and Anton were friends. I say he threw her a bone. I feel like the respondent and not the plaintiff. Everything I was doing was coming from my heart to get my lil girl out of a bad situation. Anton and the free lawyer managed to get me 52weeks of domestic violence classes though I haven't been charged nor convicted of domestic violence. Anton's retainer fee is cheap. I'm wondering who else paid him on the case I hired him for. Really though. Wholesale legal brokering services perhaps. If you hire this guy, be prepared to hire a second lawyer for damage control. Very inexperienced. Don't do it. Can't wait to show all the declarations written on my behalf just hours before my court date. No game plan. No strategy. I could've done a much better job myself and I think he knows it.

This was my first experience hiring a lawyer and let me tell you it was my worse experience ever. He is very inexperienced. Let me try to make a long story short. My case was way to big for him to handle. I was not prepared for court or mediation. The day of court he was 45 mins late. Showed up looking like he just rolled out of bed with a file folder in his hands not more, nothing less. He didn't know what the FCS report said and I basically had to tell him what it said. He did not go into court and fight for me. He basically told me to take what they was offering me which would of had consequences. He basically got mad when I didn't agree with what he was telling me to do. I hired Mr. Anton because I wanted someone to fight for me but he did the opposite. Basically we got ran over in court. Anton just sat there so quited. After i told him I wanted a continuece of my case he tired to go into court and do what he wanted to and got shut down by the opposing party. He told him all of what we was asking for and nothing was a surprise anymore. After the court case was over he wanted To talk about fees but did not want to his performance. Go figured. I refused to pay him anymore of my hard earned money for him not to do anything helpful for me. He's not good in complicated cases especially when it involves depositions etc. will never recommend him to anyone.

Anton helped me through the process of divorce an child custody. I was a pain in the ass client because of how emotional the situation was. I am very pleased with the work Anton provided me and I am very happy with the outcome of my case. Since my case has ended I have email Anton with questions and he has always answered them and helped guide me in the right direction.

In most child custody cases, the father hardly ever gets sole custody of their child. Not so in my case. Anton Lakshin fought for my son and I in court and he won our case for us! I was seeking sole custody of my 8 year old son and I needed a lawyer with experience in child custody cases. Anton Lakshin came highly recommended and I hired him. I was only seperated at the time when I hired him and he advised me that if I was going to get divorced someday that I may as well do it with the custody case. He helped me get my divorce and sole custody of my son. He made things so easy for me. He took care of filing all the forms. He appeared in court everytime with me and was able to communicate my requests to the Judge and opposing counsel very effectively. He answered all my phone calls and all my emails. This lawyer knows how to win a case. He truely cared about me and my son. If you need effective and affordable legal representation, I highly recommend Anton Lakshin.

This guy is green and inexperienced. My case was way over his head and he had no business being part of it. He sat in court quietly as we got creamed by the other attorney. They won. He then tried to get me to agree to terms from the other attorney that were just ridiculous and would have long term consequences. After that disappointing display in the courtroom, he also tried collecting more money and even said that if I didn't follow his advice he wouldn't want to represent me. I didn't. I instead hired another attorney that was able to immediately step in to do damage control including countering their offer to terms that were more agreeable and temporary!
