To all single fathers and mothers that are looking for proper legal representation for a divorce - The Law Offices of Brett R. Wishart is it. I speak from experience as I brought Brett my case after being represented poorly by two other law firms - one of which "is the go to." They had completed my case file with so many errors that the court would not accept the documentation. Brett and his team made sense of the pre-existing work and quickly corrected the issues and was able to get me in front of a judge to settle my case. He not only did this in a timely manner, but with a MUCH more favorable outcome than I imagined possible. I contribute this to his impressive knowledge of the legal system. I realize that some reviews seem "fluffy" but truly out of 3 attorneys in 2.2 years, Brett was the only one that was able to resolve my case and did so with empathy and care. I appreciate all this firm has done.

My situation was somewhat unique in that I had been divorced already for 7 years. I have three kids and my ex wife lives within a mile of me. She hired an attorney and then filed for a child support modification with outrageous demands. I had no choice but to hire an attorney and so I set out to interview several. After speaking to several attorneys and not really sure who to hire, I lastly met with Brett. One of the first things that impressed me about Brett was that family law is the only law that he practices; it is what he specializes in. Other attorneys practice multiple types of law. Listening to the way he was going to approach my case made it very obvious to me at that moment to hire him on the spot. Aside from that, I got a great sense that Brett was a real person. He is a great listener, very compassionate and aggressive at the same time. He truly knows the law in our county and along with his amazing team, worked tremendously hard on my case. I truly believe that the opposing counsel was overwhelmed at the iron clad case that Brett put together on my behalf. We ended up settling everything without having to go too far through the system. I would highly recommend Brett Wishart's office for anybody's family law needs.

I came to Brett with a very unique and what I felt was a messy and confusing case. I had just moved back from living overseas and needed some guidance regarding the divorce process. Going through a divorce can be an emotional time but Brett is very personable and compassionate. He made the confusing process understandable and clear. He takes the time to explain and answer any questions. He has a good head on his shoulders and most of all, remains calm. He is a very good listener and keeps rational when things get crazy.
Brett is efficient even though he is very busy with other cases as well. He has a good team and when he wasn't available, his associate Jeffrey Lewis stepped in and already knew everything going on. I didn't need to fill him in as he already read up on my case and Brett guided him through our plans. I didn't feel at all misguided or pushed aside. They are both very professional and have great communication because Jeffrey Lewis helped out with my case a couple times throughout the process. I really recommend both as they are a great team.
Brett definitely guided me through the process and helped me understand what was best. He was clear and direct. He definitely tries to be the voice of reason through the emotional ups and downs and keeps it all grounded. Thanks to Brett the long process of my divorce is complete due to his hard work, dedication, and efforts to finalize everything before getting too messy. What a relief! I would highly recommend Brett for anyone needing a Family Law Lawyer! You will not be disappointed.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse Brett. I have been the opposing counsel on cases with Brett Wishart and his firm and I have found he and his firm to be very prepared, professional and knowledgeable. Moreover, he is very reputable and not underhanded in ways that end up causing his clients (or mine) to spend unnecessary legal fees. He has the ability to both advocate for his client's interests and still work reasonably with opposing counsel. Brett is a definite asset to our profession.
