Kyle can handle it!
I hired Kyle to help me navigate one doozy of an opposing party. He presents you with the pros and cons of options and possible scenarios. Between him and his paralegal Gina we got well written declarations and arguments that made sense in the face of a whole bunch of senselessness. When the other party's actions went off the rails, Kyle knew what to do, and he'll know what to do for your case too.

The best attorney! Hands Down!
Recently I was taken back to court in San Diego for custody issues, while already having a pending case in Arizona. I hired Kyle Siems as my attorney. If I could give Kyle 10 stars I would! I first spoke with him on the phone then I drove over 6 hours to first meet up with Kyle, and when I met him and talked to him about my case, he really struck me as the attorney for my case. He was professional, to the point and knew the laws! He handled my case with the utmost of urgency, always letting me know what was going on and kept me in the loop, as I live in Arizona. He put a stop to the forum shopping that the other parent was committing. He knew the UCCJEA laws, he knew what he was doing, and got both of the Judges (AZ and CA) talking and needless to say this case was stopped dead in its tracks. Kyle was very professional, knew his laws and shows so much professionalism and I would truly recommend him and his firm to anyone. The Wilkinson and Finkbeiner Firm comes highly recommended from me, and Kyle handled our case wonderfully. Especially after what the opposing party was trying to pull, all the while there are laws specifically stating that you can't do what the opposing party was doing, shopping around for custody, just because she didn't get her way in another state. Kyle knew how to handle my case, he knew what laws were there to protect me in this situation and he used those laws to protect me. If I ever have to go back to court in San Diego, which hopefully I don't have to, we will be using Kyle's services again.

Very personable
I had used Wilkinson/Finkbeiner during my divorce in 2009. Excellent job. They pointed out several filings that my ex's team made that were solely designed to keep billing us. In 2015 I needed help with dividing the marital home with my ex. I read up on the procedures and flirted with the idea of representing myself but decided to seek professional advice. Kyle sat with me and helped me visualize the numbers and some choices to make. I retained his help and get a substantially higher offer from my ex than I would if I had gone alone. I asked if it would be worth it to counter for a higher offer and Kyle said there wasn't a solid basis to pay more money on the hope of getting a higher settlement. Kyle always treated me like a person and not a customer. I would definitely recommend his service.

Kyle Siems is strong, fair, reasonable and thoughtful
I needed to address some issues with my original custody agreement. My ex-wife is a particularly challenging individual who doesn't respond to correspondence, used an 'unofficial' attorney, and would routinely ignore interactions - making the process frustrating. Mr. Siems handled this very professionally and we ultimately came to a settlement that worked for everyone. Mr. Siems is the third family law attorney I hired (the pool of respectable family law attorney's is, well, shallow!). Mr. Siems is an exception - his goal is to help find solutions to problems - not bilk the client out of every last dollar. He seems to care about his clients too. Also, I was referred to Mr. Siems by a family friend who is a child support and family law mediator - someone who works with plenty of family law attorneys and knows the good from the bad. Highly recommended.

Great Experience with Kyle
After trying to modify my child custody and support order myself and my ex wife was being absolutely unreasonable about everything, she left me no choice but to retain counsel. I contacted Kyle Siems and it was a real comfort from our firsr conversation. Ultimately, it took a few months to get things worked out mainly due to court schedules, but Kyle was very honest and upfront about possible outcomes and costs and was pretty spot on with everything. He worked hard to negotiate with my ex wife's attorney who wouldn't budge so after going before the Judge, Kyle laid out my case in a well presented manner and showed how we were fair and seeking best outcome for all parties and in the end, the Judge awarded me almost exactly what I had wanted from the beginning. A HUGE thanks to Kyle Siems for his cool approach and honesty and getting the job done. Hopefully I never need to go thru this again but if I do, you can bet I'm going back to Kyle!!

Didnt fight for me and told me to go along with what my daughters mom wanted.
I contacted kyle to help me with my child custody and support case. I gave him all the money I had to get the retainer done and make sure things would start moving. He started out great and working on my case, but then when it came to fighting against my ex for custody and support he didn't want to do anything I recommended or wanted. He advised me to just go along with what they wanted and that it was the best I could get. I was in military and had a reliable car a reliable job and a stable house for my daughter to be in and her mom barely worked had no car and lived with relatives or friends or her mom when she wasn't fighting with her and had a domestic violence case against her. In the end I got only 30% custody so only 3 weekends a month and some holidays and was paying over 600 in child support a month on top of being the only one that traveled to see my daughter as I worked and lived 3 hours away. I drove to get her and back to drop her off. Kyle didn't fight to get me anything better and went well over the 3,000 retainer some how. Even other lawyers I talked to said he didn't strive to get me anything better. His own office at the time waived the rest of my fees because they knew he didn't get me anything. I wouldn't recommend this lawyer.
