We hired Rick Banks to help us with our child support. It was so high we where unable to pay our bills so we talked to his team and they said we should be able to lower our amount and that we where paying to much. Now since court we are paying more in support and we have not even heard from them. I guess if u lose in court it doesn't matter to them. Not even a call to say I'm sorry I lost the case and u are now in worse case then before. He charged us $3500 to do nothing but put us in a horrible situation now. We are more behind now then ever and I guess it's no big deal to them. If u are struggling to make it and need someone to really help and be honest and care his not your guy.

Mr. Banks and his team quickly, efficiently, and most importantly - successfully took my case through to resolution. I hired Mr. Banks in October, interviews were conducted and information gathered immediately, and court dates were set. We closed the case successfully in early January. Great attorney, great staff, and most importantly, the results we wanted.

Mr. Banks has represented me twice, and both times he was able to get the results I was hoping for. If I ever need an attorney again in the future, I won't hesitete to hire him a third time.

First off I did not get a free consultation, I was charged $150 for a half hour. I had heard good things about Mr Banks and I decided to give him a try. I have been disappointed with my experience. I do not feel he has done the job he should have and could have done. My ex has been making false accusations about my parenting in order to sway the court. He has done little to defend me and not been on the offensive or proactive at all. I have spent a large amount of money and gotten very little in return. I continually get massive bills every month for phone calls and paper work, yet have received very little. Everything we have done to be proactive has been my idea. He has been very passive and ineffective. My Ex's lawyer distorted him in court and was half the price. My ex and her lawyer are now in a far better position and it is very frustrating. I have been patient and tried to give them a fair chance but they have come up short. He has continually put the blame on others when I know there is more he could be doing. All that has happened is that my child support has gone up.

Rick D. Banks, attorney at law, handles my case with no time waste, he provids free consultant with easy understanding language right after I left message on his voice mail regarding need help to file bankruptcy. Consultant he gave providing so much information to help me to understand what type of bankruptcy I may need and what is the impact may happen to me. After I made decision to file it, I experienced Rick D. Banks attorney and his wonderful staff Miss Leanna Gonzales are great team to work with. They are specialties and knowing exactly what documents court are looking for. Whole processing went through smoothly, took about 6 months starting from my initial phone call to the final court decision. Now I can start fresh and not going to make same mistake anymore. I strongly recommend attorney Rick D Banks to handle your case. Not only because his specialties, friendly stuff also his fee is very reasonable to me. He is really a great gentleman wanting to help people not taking the opportunity to make big money.

I hired Rick Banks as my attorney in Dec. of 2011. Even after a divorce and child custody hearing several years before, I had never needed attorney services prior to this time, when I had decided to move out of state with my 2 minor children. I was very relieved to have someone like Rick working on my behalf due to the fact that I knew nothing about the laws in this type of case, and the other party was extremely uncooperative. After only a VERY short time with Rick as my attorney (about 1/4 of the time I had originally expected and planned on the case and court dates taking), and many attempts at negotiating with the other party, Rick was finally able to reach a "deal" that we both agreed on without ever having to step foot into a courtroom. His staff was always very friendly and very helpful as well. I highly recommend Rick Banks and his staff to take care of your legal needs.

Rick Banks and his office staff were professional, prompt, supportive and kind throughout the entire process of my legal matter. I felt secure and knew I was in good hands during a very scary and difficult time in my life. One hopes they will not need an attorney again, however if I do, I feel strongly that I will turn to Mr. Banks again for assistance.

This attorney and his staff make sure that you completely understand the bankruptcy proceeding and explain all options in lieu of filing. I have never felt such confidence in a lawyer. Although I have not had the need to hire an lawyer since my divorce in 1989, I have worked with many in the courts and Rick Banks is one of the best.

I was stressed, broke, an in a hopeless situation without an Attorney when My husband had his Attorney serve me. I sent emails to 3 Attorney's listed on the Avvo.com website, where I explained my marital issues and my financial hardship. Mr. Rick D. Banks not only responded to my email, He did not balk at my inability to pay right away. In Mr. Banks email to me he advised me to contact his office and set up a free consultation appointment. Upon contacting Mr. Banks office I was greeted by Helen who scheduled me up for a 1 hour free consultation. When I arrived at Mr. Banks office I was extremely nervous but his staff Paralegal Helen Garcia an Administrative Assistant Leanna Gonzales were, courteous, friendly and professional. During my consultation Mr. Banks was friendly, courteous, extremely intelligent and knowledgeable. He listened to me and was very compassionate and understanding regarding my financial situation. Mr. Banks was compassionate enough to take my case and My file and collection of documents were started that very day by Leanna. Mr. Banks Paralegal Helen Garcia, has been a God sent to me, she is helpful, efficient, attentive, responds to emails immediately, explains the process and what is expected. She has the ability to set your fears at ease. Mr. Banks has even given me advise on and issue of me being sued that had nothing to do with my Divorce. On July 1, 2013 I had a court date for Attorney fees. Mr. Banks arrived on time, dressed very impressively and prepared. Mr. Banks not only negotiated Attorney fees, he was also able to negotiate the spousal and child support payments. This was done because Mr. Banks has a great working relationship with opposing Counsel and this greatly benefited both parties. Mr. Banks even showed great compassion to my soon to be Ex-husband by giving him time to pay the Attorney fees and letting him make three payments instead of one. Because of Mr. Banks ability to work with opposing Counsel, the remaining divorce issues will be mediated with a 4-way sit down with the opposing Counsel/client and Mr. Banks/Myself. I would highly recommend Attorney Rick D. Banks and his staff to anyone who will listen.

Rick Banks took care of all our legal needs and kept us informed the whole way through. I was impressed and over joyed that I didn't have to worry about anything. Everything went smoothly and went quicker than expected. I would recommend Rick Banks and his team for any legal service.
