We hired Jim Ratzer after firing our first two ineffectual attorneys which were draining our bank accounts. We were done with a lot of talking, meetings, and sympathy, but lack of strategy and fire power to combat aggressive attacks we were under. We found the Ratzer firm and in the first meeting we felt we found the straight-talking, no BS, DNA we needed for what we knew would be a bloody battle. We battled for 18 months in family court a complex and difficult battle. Jim Ratzer, and attorney Morgan Dobis were stars. They didn't waste our time, they had conviction, they fought with vigor. They overcame many unexpected obstacles. We went in knowing the odds that a father gets custody. In the end, we won the war on nearly every front. We are incredibly grateful that we found Jim Ratzer and Morgan they helped a just outcome where a son escaped an unstable future and is thriving today in a stable, happy life with Dad.

Jim & Morgan are exceptional attorneys. They are pocket aces before the flop. Trust me, you want their representation if you are in a divorce. They were always upfront and told me what could happen. Jim's experience, honesty and expertise show immediately. They were always prompt in their communication. He knew the legal issues and he really fought for me. The other side was just far too outmatched by this duo. Thanks Jim & Morgan for all your help.

It takes a special type of lawyer to help a person deal with the emotional issues of a divorce, and protect your rights as a spouse or parent. There's no better lawyer to have in your corner than Mr. Ratzer to minimize the trauma and maximize the result.
