I actually was referred to Mr. Bratton by one of my ex-husbands friends/co-worker. Mr. Bratton handled my divorce for me. I had been married for just shy of 25 years and I knew I needed some help. My ex wanted to "handle" it ourselves but I knew all that would happen would that I would be bullied into doing everything his way and NOT fairly. Mr. Bratton and his staff provided me with awesome service and were never bothered by my questions and always helped me to understand all the proceedings. I was very comforting to know I had someone in my corner looking out for my best interests. I will forever be grateful to Mr. Bratton and his team!!!

Honest Attorney !!! Productive Attorney !!
Obviously a joke - right? I have heard all the same jokes you have and read and heard every real life story about the promises attorneys make and never keep. The one thing most people think you can count on is it is always good for them and heartbreak for you.
Well, I am writing this to tell you I have used Mr. Bratton and his staff for
almost 18 years for various issues surrounding my very difficult divorce with complications involving support payments, child custody and support modifications. Such a horrible experience !!
But I can tell you honestly that you could never hope to find an attorney with more integrity or ability to seek a middle ground. HE is always looking for a "sense of fairness " in dealing with you and the opposition.
HE always looked out for the best interest of my child and me ( not
always agreeing with me) but for what was fair and equitable. And I can tell you honestly that I never felt ripped off like so many stories I have heard and read.
So if you are in need of a family law attorney I highly recommend MR. Bratton to handle one of the most important issues of your life.
With great respect and gratitude I would like to thank MR. Bill Bratton and his staff for all they have done for me.
I am sure you will feel the same when the horrible experience of needing a family law attorney ends.
With sincere thanks

I was involved in a very lengthy and horrible custody battle with my Ex wife. I retained Mr. Bratton after a terrible experience with my first attorney. Mr. Bratton was very professional and represented me in a spectacular fashion. For those of you who've gone through this experience you know how stressful it is. He was always there to talk me down, give me sound advice and keep me on track. The best part of all was that by the end of it all I was awarded primary custody of my children. I constantly recommend him to anyone that is preparing to go to family court.

My decision to retain Mr. Bratton was based on a bad experience with another divorce attorney. Walking into Mr. Bratton's office for a consultation I felt like the outcome of my divorce was very dark but after our meeting walked out with a ray of hope.
Mr. Bratton took my case and was very professional, thorough, knowledgeable and compassionate. He is well versed in the law and is respected in the court room. His staff has been awesome through this process also.
There are many emotions involved in a divorce and anytime I had a phone conversation with him he always had a calming effect.
He is good at sizing people up which helps in developing his strategy for the case. He is an excellent attorney and is loyal and committed to his client.
Thank you again for helping me start a new chapter of my life.

The Bratton team have always been upfront fair and compassionate with my needs. They worked as a team to do what's best for my situation. In a stressful time of anyone life's who's going through a divorce it's nice to have someone like the Brattons to be level headed while looking out for your future and the future of your family.

Bill Bratton was my third ( and last ) attorney in a very long ( 3 years ) and highly contentious divorce. We spent around 2 1/2 yrs together and went to court a dozen times. My case was very complex but Bill was able to get me all that I wanted and deserved. He knew my case like the back of his hand and was always prepared. When he spoke in court, everyone listened , even the judge and opposing councel. You could hear a pin drop !. He takes a personal interest in his clients cases and his prices were fair for the work he did. There is no one better !

Mr. Bratton helped me get through a legal separation and ultimately divorce. I had special circumstances surrounding my divorce and unfortunately it took 4 years to finalize. This was only due to the other party and my life circumstances. Mr. Bratton was professional and always responded to my emails with a return email and or personal phone call in a very timely matter. He explained legal wording in layman's terms. He never dictated what to do yet gave choices and explained the outcome to me. I would highly recommend him as a divorce attorney. I was very fortunate to found him from a friend who is a divorce attorney. I asked my friend "who would you use if you wanted the best in Riverside?" She said, "Bill Bratton". She was right. Mr. Bratton and his entire office were very kind, professional and compassionate. Anyone going through a legal separation or divorce knows how difficult of a time it can be. If I can give you one piece of advice, that would be to listen to him and take his advice. I made the mistake of initially doing it my way and ultimately that cost me time and money. I should have listened to him from the start. Trust him, he knows his job and try to leave the emotions out of it.

I was involved in a very nasty divorce from my wife of 28 years. My case had been dragging on for over 5 years with no end in site - UNTIL I was introduced to Mr. Bratton. Almost immediately there was marked progress. Mr. Bratton and his office staff were very professional and welcoming. Mr. Bratton demonstrated a very skillful persona with a very good plan. He reviewed my case and then implemented the plan. In a rather short time our case was adjudicated to my relief.
He showed himself to be a intelligent, thoughtful, and caring person. In my opinion I found him to be a " problem solver - not a problem maker ". I have recommended him to friends and people that I work with without any hesitation. He truly made a huge difference in my life and the lives of my daughters.

I cannot begin to say enough about Bill Bratton, and I cannot possibly recommend him more enthusiastically. Family law proceedings are a very difficult and emotional time, but Bill’s extensive knowledge and confidence eased my fears and uncertainties throughout the process. He gave me the confidence to do what was right for the long-term, not just what would suffice for the present situation. Bill was assertive when the situation called for a more aggressive approach, and always kept me calm when I felt at my wit’s end. Bill’s level of professionalism was matched only by his level of caring, and I will always be indebted to him.

Bill Bratton was recommended to me to assist in my divorce by a friend who also was very pleased with his services.
I hired Mr. Bratton to represent me in my divorce. He did an excellent job explaining the process, time line, cost, and probable outcome.
He kept the file moving and was timely in filing, negotiating and responding to my questions and requests.
He told me that he was not interested in "running up my bill" but rather in getting the job done in a timely manner and the most cost effective manner possible. He recommended other attorneys that my then former spouse could consult that were easy to work with and also that were like minded in getting the job done and in not charging exorbitant fees.
Mr. Bratton told me that my divorce would probably take between nine months and 18 months. It took 15 months. The final bill was reasonable.
Mr. Bratton negotiated a fair division of assets and a reasonable alimony settlement. I was very satisfied and would highly recommend his services in family law matters.
