4 Years of Legal Representation
Jason is very knowledgeable, professional, and incredibly thorough. If you are in the unfortunate situation of going through a difficult divorce or custody issue, I would recommend you have Jason and his team on your side. I have worked with Jason for about 4 years through a difficult divorce that involved child safety issues, visitation issues, child support issues, domestic violence restraining orders, and more. With that said, when the opposing client is an "executive" and professional manipulator, those things can be incredibly difficult to bring justice to. Jason is well-versed in working with clients who are dealing with narcissistic behavioral issues, manipulation, gaslighting, and abuse. Jason knows the right questions to ask and steps to take to bring those things to light before a judge. I can honestly say that the safety of both myself and my children are partly due to the representation that I had. It has been a long road and I am very thankful to be where we are today. Thank you to Jason and all of the Bamieh & De Smeth team.

Jason Frantz, Amazing Attorney!
Jason is an outstanding lawyer. He represented me in an ongoing, arduous, and very challenging case involving support payments and other issues with my contentious divorce. Jason was professional, helpful, and very organized and efficient with all the paperwork and financial information associated with my case. He was always prepared and I was so impressed with his knowledge of the law and his expertise. I would highly recommend Jason Frantz as a family law attorney! He is an excellent lawyer and we are lucky to have him in our community.

Professional, understanding and helpful
Jason and his team at Bamieh & De Smeth were extremely helpful and competent during a challenging divorce. They were responsive to my phone calls and emails (my repeated emails!), guided me through court proceedings and court documents, and always seem to know when I was in need of a follow up email or phone call during a difficult part of the process. I am really appreciative of Jason and his staff.

Very effective and efficient
Jason helped me to resolve a custody dispute to secure a window of consecutive time in the summer to spend taking my kids on vacation. He's collaborative and offers great strategy. The office is attentive and responsive as well.

Thank you for all your help...
There are many attorneys who are skilled out there, but to find a skilled Family Law Attorney who is highly ethical as well as reasonable in his billing practice and willing to listen to your wants and needs is a rarity. Mr. Jason D. Frantz and his team Bamieh & De Smeth, PLC has all of these qualities and frankly much more... he is a skilled negotiator and focuses on his clients goals. I would highly recommend him.
