I hired Mr. Preston and $15,000.00 later my divorce is final but I still haven't received what I was told I would be getting. My ex actually spent a lot less then I did and walked away from this divorce better off. Every time I contact Mr. Preston I get charged more and more. His staff is extremely unfriendly and even Mr. Preston talks down to you and leaves the impression that you are bothering him with your stupid questions. I am very unhappy with this attorney and wish I would had taken my chances with a different one. I was told "Mr Preston is good but he's expensive", well I found out the last part of that statement was the truth.

After conducting in-depth research on Mr. Preston's impressive and outstanding history as a lawyer on paper, I was surprised with the outcome of my case that I hired him for. He made me feel very confident when preparing for my case and listed numerous things that I should have been getting from my divorce that I wasn't recieving. After the case concluded...and over $4,000.00 dollars later that Mr. Preston's services cost me, none of what he said to me in the beginning stages ended up actually happening in our favor. $4,000.00 dollars is a lot of money for an enlisted man in the Navy trying to make his child support payments and I wouldn't have hired him if I thought everything we we trying for and he said to me would get denied. My child support payments actually increased substantially, I lost the ability to alternate tax return claims with my ex-wife, and travel expenses for me to go see my son(which he said we could probably get her to pay half)also did not rule in our favor, among other things. Mr. Preston actually said after the case that we should take her back to court, which I obveously declined due to how much money I had already invested in his services with a very negative outcome from the case. My point in this review is to warn people that just because a lawyer may look good on a website, and is expensive, you don't always get what you pay for. I would also recommend bringing up getting all or a portion of your money back when nothing that the lawyer says you should get when he represents you actually ends up happening. I would not recommend hiring Mr. Preston based on my experience with his representation.
