Posted by Wayne
My ex had decided to use our child as a weapon to punish me and was systematically denying the court-ordered visitation schedule. Mr. Bratton listened to me, outlined what could be done, and he used his many years of experience with the courts to stop her claim to reduce visitation so she could get more child support. He worked hard to make sure he called me back, communicated what I should do to help myself, and made sure that my best case was presented to stop the madness. Mr. Bratton was better prepared than opposing counsel, had all of the right answers and the right paperwork to back my side. Because of my ex, I had to call on Mr. Bratton three times for separate and different attempts to harass me and try to keep me from seeing my child over 3 years, but each time I was very satisfied with Mr. Bratton's efforts, his explanations about the process, and the outcomes. He was able to get the court to uphold my rights and preserve visitation. I would recommend him highly if you need an attorney, if you are having problems with your family law case, or if you are concerned that your ex is using your child to hurt you --Mr. Bratton will have your back.

William Bratton was extremely professional. I used Bratton in two case as my Attorney. He was always honest up front and an expert in his field of work. I built an extremely trust and confidence in his abilities that if he said something I never hesitated I told him to just do it. I have seen him in court and he out performance any Attorney out there with great skill talent and high success. He always got everything he sought out for me legally and in both case I received all that I was entitled to fairly and legally. Not only does he out shine any Attorney I know of but he is fair and never overcharged me and always saved me money in my cases. His office staff in very timely in getting back with you and friendly and easy to work with. If there were any delays in my case it was never on his end. He always did his part at a prompt timely matter and followed you with other party involved. If you want what you are entitled to legally and at a fair price you need to have him represent you! You will always come out on top I know I did.

Mr. Bratton and his office helped to make a horrible life event manageable. I doubt anyone wants to retain an attorney, but sometimes life forces that decision. In my case I was going through an unexpected divorce after 36 years of marriage and although much of the settlement issues were amicably decided upon between the parties, I still wanted the security of having an attorney handle my side of the divorce. Mr. Bratton was recommended to me by two different people whose opinions I trusted and ultimately he made the entire process as painless as possible. I highly recommend Mr. Bratton!

William (Bill) is & has been simply ourstandjng in every way. Bill helped me regain everything that I had lost by using other attorneys (5 in as many years). It wasn't until I found Bill Bratton that things began to improve - and in a big way! His professionalism along with his compassion and intuition for people and situations makes each step of an agonizing situstion ALMOST enjoyable. He ia a true advocate for you when speaking on your own behalf is absolutely a bad idea. I'd hate to imagine what life would be like today had I not had Mr. Bratton & his office on my side.

Bill was very professional and gave me detailed information on how alimony was determined and that at this time do to my enhanced finical situation it would be unwise to pursue any action in regards to taking my ex back to court to try to have my alimony payment reduced.

Please let me first and foremost state that this is a review that I take very seriously and personally. It is my desire to relay my personal experience with the most authentic, genuine and heartfelt expression possible. Finding myself in a place of watching life as I knew it for myself and my three young boys, literally fall apart was one that I never dreamed I would ever have to face or endure. I met with many attorneys. I trusted my instinct and feelings as best I could as I tried to unpack a very messy and destructive situation filled with confusion, fear, hurt, loss, and uncertainty. I had three small boys to consider and I was committed to fighting for each of us. For this reason, it was critical for me to choose wisely in seeking representation. I met with many and none were resonating with me. I had no peace. Mr. Bratton came highly recommended to me. When I met with Mr. Bratton, I instantly knew that he was who we needed. I needed to know that the best interest of my boys and myself I were going to be guarded and protected. Mr. Bratton is not the average, stereotypical lawyer. He is a man of character, dignity, strength, diligence, resolve, confidence, perseverance, humility and humor. He made me feel safe, secure and content even in moments when all I could bring to the table were feelings of fear uncertainty and brokenness. He lifted me up when I felt low. He encouraged when I couldn't see the hope before me on my own. He made me feel that my boys and I were valuable and worth fighting for. He was very much a voice of reason, compassion and sensitivity too. Being in place of vulnerability and confusion there is the potential to be taken advantage of quite easily. Mr. Bratton and his entire staff provided care, concern, and stability for myself and my boys in circumstances that stirred fear and uncertainty. He provided sharp representation with a fierce diligence to protect and serve us ethically and professionally. He was firm, kind, patient and fearless in pursuing our best interests. I can honestly say that he is man who in his representation, has exceeded my expectations by far. As he walked every step with me I always knew I was guarded and secure. I was consistently amazed at how he made bearable, the most painful thing my boys and I had experienced in our lives. As I imagine the upcoming resolution in my divorce, I see the process almost finished and I'm thankful for the peace it will bring. I will miss the contact and confidence I have grown fondly of in having found someone to stand in the gap for me and my boys. However, I am also saddened, because I will miss the friend I have gained. Hard times come and I have learned that there are gifts woven in between the rough edges they bring. I have lived and learned that I may have hired an attorney, but from the deepest part of my heart, I have found a friend. I will be forever thankful for his representation and friendship.

For the last seventeen years, Bill Bratton have been my indispensable lawyer that have helped me navigate the maze of the California family court system, his honesty and knowledge of the system provided me with the crucial informations and insights so I could make the best decisions for myself and my children.
In spite of being transfer out of state, Bill did not skip a beat. He help me with all of the standard divorce issues such as out of state visitations, child support and other thorny issues.
I highly recommend him for a Family Court lawyer

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.
