I am very pleased with the letter my attorney wrote to the HOA. He returns calls. He is very concerned and helpful. There are still some kinks we will have to work out, however I do have a lot of confidence they will be taken care of.

Competent and accessible
I was in a panic state and contacted Timothy after hours on a Friday night, he returned my call within an hour or less. Before I committed to hiring him he gave me legal recommendations. It was a matter regarding my minor son and involved his school. Timothy listened to us and worked to put a legal strategy in place, the matter lasted about three month, he represented my son at an administrative hearing at the school and although this type of case was somewhat new to him he was able to research the procedures and regulations involving this type of hearing. I was especially impressed with his defense skills at the administrative hearing at the school district. With his skills and help we were able to win the case.

I needed legal representation for some property settlement issues stemming from a divorce.   When I called Tim's office he was respectful and came across as confident but not cocky.  After I went to his office to discuss my situation in more detail, he devised a strategy for us to follow.  He ultimately convinced the other attorney to drop the case so I was able to avoid going to court and/or have to pay out some kind of settlement. The bottom line is the desired outcome was achieved. Tim was not only effective, but he was also conscientious about containing costs.  If any of my family or friends need an attorney I would feel comfortable referring them to Tim.

Good Lawyer
This is a good family lawyer. If you want someone to defend you in court he will rely heavy on evidence to carry your case. I went through two other lawyers until I found this one. He is honest and he will represent you personally. He even did research on my case for my defense. My case is a highly contested custody, divorce, and trial. I highly recommend this laywer in this area. On the first day of trial he wore a purple tie to support awareness for domestic violence. Also I would recommend him to anyone.

I have referred many clients to Tim that I was conflicted out of representing and/or that needed help in an area he practices and all have been extremely happy with their representation, the communication and level of committment and/or knowledge in the area of law and his honesty and integrity toward client expectations and what they can expect, along with the results received. As such all would and do put me in the position to represent you will get more than your money's worth through representation by Tim and you will leave as a pleased client when his work is done.

professional and helpful
Tim helped me with a court case. He went above and beyond expectations. I'm glad I made a decision to hire a professional lawyer instead of choosing a court assigned one.

My business simply cannot afford to be without him!

Excellent representation
Mr. Ewanyshyn made what is potentially a traumatic and painful process as easy as one might hope to have. He was attentive, understanding, patient and did all the homework to ensure that there would be no glitches during or after the process was completed. I am grateful for his professional expertise and recommend him without reservation. He is a wonderful ambassador for the legal profession. Thank you Tim. Al

I couldn't ask for a better lawyer! I know in my heart that the out could of been different if I didn't have Mr. Ewanyshyn
I had a TOUGH case and I do not put that lightly! I have a 5 year old little girl who's dad and I split up and I had always had her but all of a sudden he wanted her he wanted the time I had and wanted me to have weekend's he was NOT going to stop till he gained CUSTODY. With in a 5 month time span we were in court three times and one of the times was an emergency hearing because under false statements he was granted temporary custody for 30 days with out me having no visitation I was horrified I went to my child school to pick her up and was GONE!! I called Mr. Ewanyshyn he told me don't worry I will have a emergency court hearing set for Friday this was Wednesday. I was scared but I had faith in my lawyer. When we went to court Friday Ava was returned to me due to Mr. Ewanyshyn stating the fact and the truth and be a great lawyer to re join a child with her mother not only was my little girl given back to me but I was granted a moved I had requested my little girls dad try to fight it! He tried hard but Mr. Ewanyshyn brought out the family law book and stated cases and gave facts that day I was granted the return of my child and my move! The 1st time Mr. Ewanyshyn went to court for me I did not appear he appeared for me and my little girls dad try to hold me in competed of court and try to prove me as an unfit parent! It was a fight and from the bottom of my heart I know that things could have gone another way if I didn't have him! He knows the laws he knows everything child custody laws and he is a blessing to me! I have recommend him to as people as I can and my court case was Oct 25th, 2013 to this day I still call with any questions I have he answered them and I know I will always need him my little girls dad is no joke! He is not a great person he was not a big part of her life like I was and then to decide because he had a stable job for more years than me and I was moving he was trying to say I was not stability for our child it was a fight but I had the right lawyer on my side! I recommend Mr. Ewanyshyn when it comes to your children going to court is hard but with him on your side it makes it all make sense.

Last Minute Rescue!
Tim was a Godsent. After being told by my previous attorney that "You have NO options, you’re going to have to pay the court ordered amount". This statement was delivered without any consideration of the many circumstances that I felt would modify the court order of the asset division. After hearing that I procrastinated retaining an attorney and even flirted with the idea of representing myself. The day before my hearing I took the day off work and went to the courts and sat in the courtroom listening to the various attorneys representing their clients. It's there where I discovered a competent and confident Tim Ewanyshyn. When he finished with one of his cases I followed him out of the courtroom and introduced myself. I asked him if he would represent me on my case the next morning, I brief him on the situation, he reply "Sure, meet me at my office in La Quinta at 4:00 later this afternoon". He met me at his office, reviewed my case and for the first time gave me encouragement. The next morning he was able to obtain a continuance despite opposition from the other party. When the hearing date arrived, Tim successfully achieved everything I wanted, saving me an enormous amount of money even though he was up against a much senior, experienced former judge currently practicing law as an attorney. I would highly recommend Tim for any family law issues that you may have.

I discharged Mr. Ewanyshyn and hired another attorney who would follow my directions and implement my decisions. My new attorney fought for me and did what I asked and I accomplished nothing but a large bill. I wish I had kept Mr. Ewanyshyn as my attorney.

Not Recommended
Mr. Ewanyshyn made decisions and comments to the opposing counsel against my directions. He did not fight for me rather he just filled out paperwork and did the minimum to get by and keep the case open so he could bill more hours. Do yourself a favor and find someone else.
